I love to hike. My son Spencer might tell you that he thinks it is “boring” because “it’s not really exercise”…. that you are just “walking in the woods”…. but I beg to differ. For me it combines a great form of exercise- walking at a good pace coupled with the down and up of [...]
When I asked my kids if they wanted to go to Legoland Westchester this summer- my 8-year-old Alex just about lost his mind with excitement! And he asked me every single day afterwards when we would be headed to Legoland! Sadly we couldn’t fit it into our schedule until mid-summer, so I had to hear [...]
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Cutter® Insect Repellents. The great thing about not committing to a summer full of scheduled activities is all of the lazy downtime that your family has together. Hanging out playing cards, reading books aloud together, watching family movies. Which also means that summer can become downright [...]

(Please check out her posts on Dude Approved Summer Activities for Kids and 30 Things to Do in Summer with Kids to be inspired by ideas for activities as [...]

It seems as if snowstorm after snowstorm has been barreling through most of the country this winter- and as I am writing this, we are facing down yet another snow day off from school thanks to Winter Storm Pax. If you are like me, you’ve already exhausted the list of indoor-kid-entertainment ideas at your disposal [...]
My kids have declared that the annual Science Fair is their very favorite night of the entire school year! And as much as it’s kind of a challenge for me to shepherd them through creating and executing and then writing about all the science experiments…. seeing how much fun they have doing it and how [...]
March 14 unofficially known as Pi Day in recognition of the mathematical number that represents the ratio of a circle’s circumference to it’s diameter- approximately 3.14159. And because I want to celebrate mathematics in my home and make math feel exciting and cool- I thought it would be fun to put together a special Pi [...]
