Sand Writing + More Learning Games for Kids

We just got back from a beach vacation, and one of my 2-year-old’s favorite things to do was scour the sand for seashells the tide washed up on the shore. He gathered up a nice little collection that we ended up bringing home with us and that he’s adorably proud of. :) The shells are currently doing double-duty as a sweet… Read More

Sunday Snapshot: Parisian Vibes

We celebrated my son’s second birthday last weekend with a Paris-themed party, complete with Eiffel Tower-shaped cookies and plenty of the delicious food and pastries France is known for.

St. Patrick’s Day Handprint Rainbow Art

My almost-2-year-old (gasp!) toddler has been all about his colors lately, naming them on various objects as we go about our day.

How to Take Your Child’s Passport Photo

Traveling abroad is expensive (though certainly worth it—even with kids in tow!), so cutting down on travel costs where you can is a must. While you can’t save money on those pricey passport application fees, you can save money by taking your own passport photos. The cost of having a passport photo taken at a drugstore… Read More

Sunday Snapshot: A Hug for Winnie the Pooh

Here I am planning out and dreaming about our next Disney experience, and I realized that I only shared one (ONE!) photo of our day at Disneyland, which makes me a little sad because one of my favorite memories of my son happened there. You know, the kind of moment you’ll hold on to and cherish forever, the kind… Read More

Sunday Snapshot: The Time We Stumbled Upon a Christmas Card

A weekend of heavy rain and flooding kept us from venturing outdoors in the cold, wet weather to experience our local tree-lighting festival this year. We had so much fun last year that it was a bummer to miss it, but I still wanted to take C to look at the 30-foot-tall Christmas tree when the weather cleared up.… Read More
