Where do you enjoy going on vacation? Our summer family travels took us to the California coast where we enjoyed camping along the beach in our RV motor home. We found so many great spots to go on family hikes and enjoy the sunny warm weather. Of course, summer weather comes with bugs, and hiking with kids comes with scraped knees.

How to Grow Flowers & Tame Curls in Winter

Little girls come with lots of personality, interests and preferences, and heads of tangled hair. My little girls wake up every morning with huge teased bedhead hairdos, so my husband starts the morning routine with brushing out their locks. He’s so funny, one of the things he most looked forward to about having girls was doing their hair, and he faithfully brushes it out every morning while I’m changing the baby’s diaper and picking up clothes off the floor.
