Back to School Style: Their new looks for the coming school year!

The kids go back to school in just two weeks and they are ready to go back in style! We didn’t do a lot of “back to school shopping” clothing-wise as most of their clothing from last year still fits them, but we did pick up two new outfits for each of them. Preschool Chic BB is starting 4K this year and it will be … Continue reading Back to School Style: Their new looks for the coming school year!

Vacation to MA 2013: Wrapping up this Recap

So we had a great vacation. I’ve shared with you snippets from our trip based on the photos I took but the truth is, I didn’t do a very good job capturing all of the things we did this year. You didn’t see the kids shivering in the pool at Kids Day because they insisted on swimming even though it was only about 60 degrees … Continue reading Vacation to MA 2013: Wrapping up this Recap

Vacation to Ma 2013: Concert on the Common

We had beautiful weather during this trip – sometimes just cool enough to grab an extra layer but rarely downright hot or cold. Wednesday night we joined Dan’s parents and sisters (and significant others) for a concert on the common in the town where they grew up. What’s better than a concert on the common? A Beatles Tribute Night Concert on the Common. Sprawled out … Continue reading Vacation to Ma 2013: Concert on the Common

Vacation to MA 2013: Visiting the Higgins Armory Museum (one last time)

It’s the end of an era. During our recent vacation to Massachusetts we had to stop by the Higgins Armory Museum one last time. They are transferring their collection to the Worcester Art Museum in January 2014 following the closure of Higgins Armory at the end of the year. Why are they closing? “Like all museums, Higgins has been faced with the challenge of long-term … Continue reading Vacation to MA 2013: Visiting the Higgins Armory Museum (one last time)

Vacation to MA 2013: Kids Day!

  My husband’s family has been doing Kids Day basically forever. Every Tuesday in the summer his Aunt opens up her home which has a gorgeous fenced in pool and a beautiful backyard for all the kids to run around and play. There is always a tempting assortment of foods and the kids live like royalty for a day because “It’s Kids Day!!” is the … Continue reading Vacation to MA 2013: Kids Day!

Vacation to MA 2013: The Trip There

We have flown with the kids a few times since moving to WI and it’s exactly never been FUN. Going into this vacation, I was kind of preparing for war. I tried to anticipate everything that could go wrong and make the trip go as smoothly as possible. We power packed a family of four into two suitcases (plus purse, diaper bag and lap top … Continue reading Vacation to MA 2013: The Trip There

Mommy & Me Monday on Vacation: August 12th

We got back from a fantastic 10 day vacation in Massachusetts this weekend. Did you notice I was gone? Probably not thanks to my handy scheduled posts last week. We have been living the good life in New England, visiting family and eating a ton of fantastic food that probably wasn’t very good for us. We crammed an awful lot into our vacation, running all … Continue reading Mommy & Me Monday on Vacation: August 12th
