It is still Strawberry Season!

It is strawberry picking time here in Florida! (Get it? Pick of the Week?) Benders Farm (Click Here to read a Review) is The Girls Strawberry Farm now doing U-Pick Strawberries.  We also love to go to UPDATE:  No Strawberries at the Girls this year.  It’s sad!  The Girls U-Pick (Click Here for a Review) it is a lovely way to spend an afternoon, even without the strawberries though.

Hiking Season!  Get out in nature!

Grab the chance to take the kids a little hike!  Need some tips for hiking with the Family?  Check out 5 Tips for Hiking with Kids or 5 Tips for Birding with Kids!  We love Boca’s best secret hiking trail (Yamato Scrub Natural Area)!  I also love Pondhawk Nature Center, it has stroller friendly paths and is near the playground.   Daggerwing Nature Center is really nice too, loads of playground, a nice small interactive education center, and of course playgrounds!

What is New with Us?

Diary of a Rogue House CatI wanted to share some fun news! I finally published a book! It’s little and a bit silly, but I think it’s cute. (My 7 year old likes it for what that is worth.) This project is certainly a learning experience! It is available on Kindle US and Kindle Europe now and I am working on the print version at the moment. The print version should be available for purchase within the next 3 weeks.
