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: Homework, Playgrounds & Spring Break

Playground at Patch Reef Park in Boca Raton

Playground at Patch Reef Park in Boca RatonWe are in full Spring Break mode around here.  That means playgrounds, park, pool, beach and homework!  Yes, I said homework over Spring Break!  It’s okay, we found a way around it.  One of my daughters dear friends came over and they did it together.  I couldn’t believe it worked!  They happily did their work and didn’t bulk at it (well too much anyway).

Other than that we have been

sleeping in, staying up late and hitting the pool and beach!  I know the afternoons have been almost summer hot , but the morning have been cool and are the best time to hit some of our favorite parks.  Check out the category Best Playgrounds or Water Play under the Review Tab, to see some of our favorite places to play both in the water and out in South Florida & the London area.

Kids Kingdom PlaygroundMany of you know we are active in our Community Garden.  The Gardeners donate a portion of their crops to Boca Helping Hands.  I am not that good of a gardener an most of my crop gets eaten in the car on the way home, so my daughter and I do a grocery run at the end of the growing season to donate, but hey we try!  For us this is an important  activity to teach my child not only where our food comes from, but how to give back to our community.

Please come out and support us at Kapow on march 25th.  There will be some door prizes (including a chance to win a logo placement on this site).   Tickets are now on sale for the Kapow! Boca Raton Community Garden fundraiser on March 25th 5:30-7:30pm click the Event Brite link to order online.
