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!

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 5/21/14

We have been enjoying the cooler weather this week!  The breeze has been unbelievable!  I don’t know what was wrong with the weather man on the news this morning he kept saying things like “Thankfully this will be the last day for the wind”  and “You won’t have to worry about the wind after today”.  What!?  Does he realize how wonderful that breeze wis?  It is going to be so hot without it!  Oh well.

I hope everyone with kids in school are surviving, suddenly homework is the worst thing on earth and there have been many many tears over having to get up and go school everyday.  Oh, and my daughter has been finding it hard too.  I guess I should be grateful that it was easy for most of the year, but I think we are all ready for some summer fun!

The Week Ahead for 8/29/13

Sharkey Library Card Logo

Boy are we tired!  For some reason we moved 3 days before school started!  I would not advise it!

Sharkey Library Card LogoSo to get to the point, my Pick Of the Week is Sharkey’s Story Time at Alvin Sherman Library at Nova Southeastern.   The offer a wide array of weekly programs for all ages!  The curriculum is fabulous and it is truly one of the best library pre reading programs I have been too.  We fully enjoyed these programs, I would even pack a lunch and we would picnic behind the library near the pond.
