It’s Nice, Go Outside, Seriously!

Ever hear those words from your parents growing up? If it was a nice day then you got your butt outside and played. Didn’t matter what you did outside, just that you got out there because there was no need for any indoor play if the weather called for a beautiful outdoor fun time.  Spring has sprung around here so if it isn’t raining too bad then I tell the kids that we are going outside to enjoy the nice weather. If I don’t sound like my parents when I tell them, especially Aj, that there is no indoor board […]

Get Out and Enjoy The Fresh Air #fitness #health @harvardpilgrim

What do you do on a day where there isn’t really anything you can think to do. Maybe taking a walk in the woods or driving downtown to play on the basketball courts isn’t an option. So what is it that you do with the kids to keep active? Well I know what my kids and I prefer to do, we head outside in our own backyard to enjoy some random fun. Whether they take out the bikes, scooter or just do races up and down the driveway on feet, we get active. At first my oldest, and only daughter, […]

Who Is Stronger? The Competition of Brothers

My two sons are two years and six days apart. They compete on everything. Who is taller. Who is stronger.  Who can ride their bike without training wheels. Who can do this who can do that. It’s a daily occurrence in this household, so it’s no surprise that it continues on while they take a walk in the woods behind the house. They happen upon a small tree. They think they can break it down. The reason they think all trees can easily just be pushed down is because their Dad knocked down a dead tree once upon a time […]

Spring Safety Tips for Kids

There’s nothing quite like winter to bring you and your kids closer together. Cups of hot chocolate shared in front of a fireplace, the chilly afternoons spent laughing and sledding, and making snow angels all provide family-fun time during the winter months. Or maybe, that’s a little optimistic. Even with the winter entertainment, your kids have probably spent some time fighting, fussing and whining on days they are trapped inside. But, parents rejoice: spring is on the way! The long season of stir craziness is finally over, and it’s time to unleash your children on the parks and playgrounds of […]
