The Week Ahead for South Florida (It’s Strawberry Time)

The Girls Strawberry Farm Car

My Pick of the Week: Strawberries

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 The Girls U-Pick (Click Here for a Review) it is a lovely way to spend an afternoon!

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!

Diary of a Rogue House CatDiary of a Rogue House Cat

Have you ever had a pet that just seemed to cause havoc at every turn? Has your cat ever knocked over glasses, hidden your keys or generally created chaos for no apparent reason? Have you ever wondered what on earth your pet could be thinking? Baby Girl the Rogue House Cat explains all her crazy and funny actions in her new diary. Her journey to become a good house cat will help explain why cats do some of the things they do. I hope you enjoy her antics as much as I do.

The Week Ahead for South Florida; Amphicars, Disney Springs & Camping

disney Springs

My Pick of the Week:  Disney World’s Fort Wilderness

disney Springs amphicarsWe did it again!  Sometimes we get a little crazy and head up to Fort Wilderness in Orlando.  Usually our Florida winters are perfect for camping, but we ran into a  few struggles, like a flat air mattress, extremely cold rain and a leaky tent.  Somehow, it’s still my favorite get away.  We don’t even go into the parks, we ride the boat to the Magic Kingdom, get on the monorail, walk around the lake and the all the hotels.  Check out my review of Disney World’s Fort Wilderness to find out all the amazing things the campground has to offer a family for a thrifty weekend getaway!

disney Springs amphicarsThere was something new at Disney Springs (this is what they are now calling Downtown Disney).  There have been some big changes there recently, a new parking garage and another one on the way!  We were fascinated by the Amphicars!  Yes you read that right, now you can take a ride in a real Amphicar!

The calendar is filling up quickly!  Please make sure that we don’t miss your next event and submit your event today!

The Week Ahead for 8/22/13

Norton Museum Lego Exhibit Playroom

A young child stretching as she wakes up.This was the first week of school for Little.  She started Kindergarten and I am so happy, sad, excited and little melancholy.  I am sure you all understand!  I hope that those of you who are back to school now are having a great week and settling into your routines.  Check out our Survey Results on morning routines for some great reader supplied advice on how to get your kids to school on time!  Please feel free to add your own advice and breakfast suggestions in the comments.  I am sure we could all use the support!Norton Museum Lego Exhibit

My Pick of the week is the Norton Museum and the Lego Exhibit.  It is free through August on Thursdays!  It was really a neat trip!
