Especially being that, here in Texas, fall weather comes late—long after the first pumpkin sightings at the grocery store and the PSL is back in season at your favorite coffee shop.

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.

With St. Patrick’s Day coming up, I thought, what better way to foster his interest in colors than making a rainbow!

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.
