The Week Ahead for South Florida with My Favorite Holiday Sites

Cyndi’s Favorite Kids Holiday Websites

Norad Tracks SantaIf you read this blog regularly you know that I am always on the search for the most educational types of recreation for the kids.  I have once again posted and updated some of my favorite Holiday Websites.  All of them have at least a nominal amount of educational value. Well may not the Elf Yourself site, but it’s the Holidays and you gotta have some fun too.

decorationBear with me for a moment, I had a deep thought I wanted to share.  They are rare for me so here it is.

I thought I would share some of our Holiday decorations with you.  My daughter put together this little assortment. I love how she added some of her stuffed Christmas toys to our regular decorations.   I was so touched that she included my book on the Holiday Shelf.  I think the best thing I could have ever done was publish this little book, because she sees it as a major accomplishment. I want to encourage you in this Holiday Season to live out your dreams in a visible way to your children.  Not just your success, but the failures too.  For me tell her that she can be anything doesn’t mean as much as allowing her to see me try, fail and sometimes succeed.  Including her in the struggle to get published demonstrated that sometimes things don’t always work the first time you try, but together we really can do anything as long as we don’t allow ourselves to become discouraged.   I wanted to say “Hey girl, you can do anything, so I have to show you it’s possible”.  Okay, onto more fun things!

 

Flamingo Gardens of Light Holiday Event

Don’t forget to head out to Flamingo Gardens, Garden of Lights!  Even if they weren’t a wonderful sponsor for our site I would advise you go this event.  In fact it is one of the reasons that I decided to invite them join our Sponsor Family!

Trails End Breakfast Fort Wilderness Campgrounds at Disney World

Fort Wilderness Campgrounds at Disney ReviewIt’s finally starting to cool off and as far as I am concerned that means it’s time to go hiking and camping here in Florida!  My all time favorite place to go camping is Fort Wilderness!  We went last year about this time and had a freak cold snap so it was in the upper 30’s, but it was actually great!  If you are not sure about roughing it, then this is the place for you.  We tent camp there and make use of the bathrooms, restaurant, campfire programs, canoeing, pools and we even make sure to take a ride on the ferries and monorail.  There is so much to do there!  Don’t forget it Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas time too!

You can read all about our trip at http://keepingupwithkids.com/disney-worlds-fort-wilderness-campgrounds-review/

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

Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks

Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks

I had the amazing opportunity to go stay with a friend in Albuquerque New Mexico over the Labor Day weekend.  It really was incredible, and I was sorry I had such a short time there!  I would definitely recommend the area as family vacation!

One of the places we went to was called Tent Rocks National Park.  It was such a different environment for me, I was completely overwhelmed.  Here is what you need to know about visiting Tent Rocks in Albuquerque New Mexico.

Flamingo Gardens BearWe are so proud to be able to call Flamingo Gardens our sponsor for yet another year! If you have never been there, now is the time.  You can still take advantage of the special September pricing this weekend.
