5 Tips for Hitting the Beach with Kids

Beach with child by KUWKMost of us know the amazing day the beach can provide, but please keep in mind the dangers that the beach can represent.  Most of all share these tips with any northern visitors that you may have come visit.  Teen are particularly susceptible to because they think they are invincible.  I know were actually invincible when were teens, but today’s teen are not.;)

The Week Ahead for South Florida: Pumpkins and Fall Festivals

Bedner's Pumpkin Patch

The Calendar for October is getting fuller by the moment!  There is no excuse to miss any of your favorite October events anymore!  Thanks to all of you who helped out by Submitting your Community Event to our Calendar. As always, Free Community events can be submitted at no charge!  City Recreations departments with minimal charges are also free!  I am pumping up the list as we speak on the search for the best Fall Festivals, Halloween and Pumpkin Patches around!  If you know of one, let me know!  I really think that we have the biggest list ever!

Big News:  It’s Publishing Week at my daughters school so I joined in the fun and finally published my first book!  Have you ever had an animal that you were sure was actively trying to be nice, but just ended up causing havoc? Read about my cat Baby Girl and why she did all the crazy things she did.  My daughter liked hearing the stories about this crazy cat, so I put them down in a little book.

 

My Pick of the Week!

Halloween in the Hammock at Gumbo Limbo

The Week Ahead; Earth Day Events

Happy Earth Day!

I had to share this amazing photo taken by my childhood friend Tari Stage-Harvey near her home in Alaska. What a fantastic Earth Day photo! She has a blog called A Waste of Time where she has been sharing her insights on her life as a pastor, mom and a wife.  Her writing is exactly like her, witty, clever, entertaining, sarcastic, honest and borderline obnoxious.

I also thought I would share the Science Live Earth Day Facts & History with you this week! There are several events going on around town so no one should be bored this weekend!

We have had a hectic crazy week, so I apologize for the Week Ahead coming out a day late, but as I always say better late than never!

The Week Ahead for South Florida Diapers, Seuss & Fevers

cabbages in our garden

Boca Raton Community Garden

Happy Birthday Dr SeussThe Kiddo got suddenly better just in time for Saturday!  Not sure how she pulled it off, but the fever broke and off we went! We had a great day at the Garden last weekend where we celebrated the birthday of Dr. Seuss.   We are growing some great (well 2) strawberries and cabbages at our garden. I am waiting to find out how many diapers the Junior League collected for their Diaper Bank, but my daughter asked if she could build a fort with them, so there was an impressive amount.
