Fall is a great time to plan a family visit to your local pumpkin farm! While you are there, you will usually find many opportunities to play together, take some family photos and pick out a pumpkin.

Disney On Ice is a fun way to spend a special night with your family! My girls were very excited and dressed up in anticipation of the show. Disney On Ice has a full schedule of shows throughout the year, so chances are it’s coming to a city near you!
Many teenagers are excited to receive their driver’s license on their 16th birthday. While this is a great milestone, it also creates more panic for parents. After all, auto accidents are the highest cause of death for people 15-20 years old. Even if your teen is a great driver, there are plenty of other factors on the road that can cause accidents to happen. If you’re getting ready to allow your 16-year-old to travel the roads unsupervised, here are eight things to do before handing over the keys.
Summer is the perfect time to take your kids to the local theme park! Just slather on the sunscreen, grab your shades and load your kids into the car. These tips can help make it a little easier to take toddlers and young kids to the amusement park.
My girls love being a princess. Everyday they dress up as a ballerina princess, a fairy princess or just a regular princess. The life of a princess is more than just dancing and singing along with birds. My princesses go on adventures, try new things, learn life skills, read lots of books and practice being respectful and kind. Here are some important things we teach our girls about being an everyday princess.
Our family road trip took us to the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, where we saw exhibits about dinosaurs, gems & minerals, an IMAX presentation on flight and visited the Planetarium. We also had fun at the museum’s interactive kid-focused Discovery Zone, a highlight of our visit!
Traveling this summer? Don’t forget to pack these essentials to use in the car and during your family adventures. Our family travels this spring took us down the Pacific Northwest cost to California where we visited my husband’s extended family. We also explored Zion National Park in Utah and made a loop though Colorado. We brought our 5th wheel trailer and stayed at several gorgeous RV parks along the way. During our trip my kids enjoyed swimming, horseback riding, hiking, picking oranges fresh from the tree and riding bikes at several local parks. Some essential gear made our trip much easier and helped solve some basic problems any family may encounter while traveling.
What do you like to do when the weather gets warmer? Our family loves to travel and explore new places. Our recent family road trip took us to destinations in California, Utah & Colorado. Here are some of the highlights from our family road trip adventures!
The best travel destinations are places for families to make memories, get some exercise and enjoy some good old family fun. Zion National Park is a great place to visit and go on a family hike. We enjoyed exploring the canyon paths, walking in the river and taking in the gorgeous views on all sides.
The best way to teach kids new interests and skills is by making learning fun! I love finding all sorts of ways to make school fun for my girls. My girls enjoy doing experiments in the kitchen, mixing colored water, learning how plants grow and looking at the stars at night. My oldest daughter hopes to get a telescope someday. STEM activities are another fun way to introduce kids to science. American Girl created Luciana Vega to make learning about space fun for girls. Luciana is an adventurous girl who loves going to space camp and hopes to become an astronaut and visit Mars. Her colorful outfit, space accessories and adventureous interests will make any girl excited to learn about space!
