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.

Diary of a Rogue House CatI wanted to share some fun news! I finally published a book! It’s little and a bit silly, but I think it’s cute. (My 7 year old likes it for what that is worth.)

The Week Ahead, Kapow, Gardening, St. Patrick’s and Spring Break

strawberries from our gardenMany 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.Storm Trooper

My Pick of the week is the SPRING CHILDREN’S FAIR at Patch Reef Park and St. Patrick’s Day Festival and Parade Delray Beach.

The Week Ahead for South Florida 5/17/14

museum

Hope everyone is having a great summer.  I think I may have forgotten how hot it is out in the summer.  Since it has been raining so much check out the Museums tab above for a few ideas of places to go that do not require sunscreen & bug spray!

We drove down to the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science in Miami.  We had a great day, and it was pretty neat for a change.  I will do a full review of it soon, I think the Museum of Discovery and Science in Fort Lauderdale is nicer in general, but if you are near by, it has AC and the kids will have a blast!

The Week Ahead for South Florida 7/10/14

Castaway Island at TY Park interactive pool.

Hope you are all having a great week.  I will admit the weather and rain is getting me down a bit.  We have been hitting the $1 dollar movies this week, while wishing we could be at the beach in stead.  CineMark & Regal Theaters are offering them nationwide, so it’s a great trick to keep in your pocket for stormy days!  Don’t forget to check the Summer Picks tab on the site to see other great deals for the summer.

Castaway Island at TY Park interactive pool.

We did manage to get to TY Park in Hollywood for a really good day last week.  The Castaway Island Water Park is pretty cool, you can check out my review here.  I really enjoyed it and we got lucky with the weather (as you can see from the pictures) the clouds kept rolling in and sort of parting around us.  We had a great day with some great friends there.

Loads going on this week, so Click Here for the full list of upcoming events!

Need some summer accessories for that upcoming gathering?  Be sure to check in with Blair at Stella & Dot!  She has some great summer items just for you!

The Week Ahead for South Florida 3/20/14

Music for Munchkins

I hope you are all enjoying Spring Break as much as we are. (If you are lucky enough to have had it yet.)  We are still spending as much time outside as possible.  I know my friends up north are going to “unfriend” me if I keep going on about how nice it has been the last couple of weeks, but I figure we endure all the summer heat for this little bit of perfect weather we may as well shout about it!Seriously Ugly Home Grown Carrots

Our adventure in gardening took a strange turn this week.  It seems that our carrots were replaced with aliens!  I have scoured the internet for an ugly carrot contest, but to no avail.  We had a pretty good laugh over these.

I also thought I would share this petition.  I don’t normally place things like this on my site, however there has been quite an uproar over the policy change in Broward County.  Students with lice are now allowed to attend class instead of being banned until they are nit free.  Here is a link to a petition to reverse the policy if you are interested.  We all know that lice don’t actually do any horrible damage, but they sure are a pain (and expensive) to get rid of.

Ars Flores Symphony Orchestra Music for MunckinsMy pick for the week is the Music for Munchkins program offered in both Miami and Broward.  These are free kids orchestral performances where the kids are free to wiggle and giggle and learn about music.  We love this program, and my daughter enjoys it every time.  Click here for a quick review and picture of Music for Munchkins.  Our favorite was when they did parts of Peter and The Wolf.  This is an amazing educational, cultural opportunity tailor made for families!

We managed to get another review up for our series The Big Toy Box Review.  If you have a child you think might like the My Little Pony Train Set, take a moment to watch the video review.
