Bicycling with Family is Fun Exercise

Biking is a fantastic way to experience the great outdoors, both for you and your family; going around on two wheels instead of two legs lets you go places faster and have more fun doing it! For children especially, learning to ride a bike is an important part of growing up and a great chance for some bonding within your family; so long as its done safely, its an activity that you and your kids can’t help but enjoy, and it’s good exercise too! Just in case though, here is a brief summary of the essentials (and a few optional […]

Boys Just Wanna Have Fun

These two boys of mine will have fun in the easiest of places. For example, they are pictured here in the middle of the woods checking out a little path way under the ground. They danced and had a blast, can’t you just feel the fun they are having?   I really enjoyed the darker photos of them, it’s as if we are viewing their shadows. Enjoy your day everyone, make it a great one!

We Took A Walk the Other Day

One weekend the kids and I decided we would walk down town, well okay I decided the kids and I would take a nice walk and bribed them with a slushy once they realized just how far we were walking. Total time was around 1 hour 40 minutes round trip I believe. This is normally a 40 minute round trip walk for me alone. It’s not the walk that made me smile most, even though getting exercise always seems to boost my spirits it was what happened during the walk that made me smile the most… My two oldest children […]

No More Pool Days? No More Tanning? Please Say It Isn’t So

Are the days of care free over? School has started and Summer is coming to an end, NH is getting cold at night to a point that heat must go on and days are getting shorter. Is it true that Winter is on it’s way and we will get a visit from Jack Frost before we know it? Please tell me this is a lie, that we will have just one more month of Summer weather, because I can’t imagine the days of eating fresh veggies directly from the garden being gone. Is it really true that we won’t be […]

Who’s Looking For My Texas Friend?

I don’t normally check into what searches people are doing to get to my blog nor do I always check with Lijit Stats to see what people are searching when they are on my blog but the other day when the Lijit Stats email hit my inbox I figured I would take a peek and here are the only two searches that were completed on my blog and done within the past 2-3 days “texas friend” and “best friend“. So the only person who comes to mind here is my friend MommaDJane who spent a few days with me last […]

Planning a Trip to Maine For Summertime

My kids really have wanted since last Summer to spend a weekend or at least one night in Maine this Summer so I am hoping to find a great deal on a way to spend some time this Summer with the munchkins in Maine, preferably near York Beach so that we are within walking distance of the beach front. I am hoping to find some great rates to visit Maine in June or July but who knows if I will be able to afford going, and the kids will be so let down. The joys of working from home, you […]

Online Window Shopping

Do you ever walk around a mall and just window shop? I do it all the time, but from the comfort of my own home,  seriously, I will go from site to site searching for items that I need, want or find interesting. Today I happened to be doing some online window shopping and happened upon a site that sold asics sneakers, which are the same sneakers I wore as a cheerleader. Oh they brought back memories of a time when  my arms were toned and my body was fitter than it is currently. Another product that I so wanted […]
