I love a good swimming party. The key to having a great swim party is fun swim party games. I came up with a couple of games that are easy to play and inexpensive. You will need a couple of items, but you can buy most of them at the dollar store. I personally buy mine on Amazon.
I would also suggest reading this post on how to keep kids safe from a swim instructor. When you decide to have a swim party if the children aren’t able to swim on their own make sure you hire a lifeguard, in fact, you should have one on site, just to make sure. You will be busy and not able to watch the kids. You can usually hire one for $15 an hour. It is worth the expense because safety is the best investment you can make.
This Champagne Fruit Punch Recipe is made just for kids. It’s a drink my children and their friends love to drink because it fizzles, fizzes, and best of all, it “pops”. We pour it into nice crystal glasses and we celebrate. We have celebrated everything from reading a book to ringing in the New Year. This is my go to recipe for “Champagne.” I love it because it is easy to make since it only requires two ingredients. Fancy it up a little more by embellishing it with a piece of fresh fruit.
She used to be tiny. She used to want me to do everything for her. Then my daughter broke my heart.
She used to climb on my lap as easily as she now climbs a tree. Her arms would encase me, and she would pull herself in so tight that my breath became hers. She would give me a kiss and then jump off as quickly as she climbed. Her limbs would become tangled as she descended she would hardly notice as she moved toward her next target. She came to me and made a request, and I was going to find the solution.Continue reading

This is my year to find balance. I often struggle with choosing between grape or strawberry jelly on my PB&J, so I decided my new found balance is to have them both at the same time. It also appears this was a family issue since my youngest wanted to find balance with both Smucker’s jelly and Jif peanut butter. The oldest is team strawberry and the diva well, she is team grape!Continue reading

If yours is like many households in America then you are busy preparing for the big game. You know the one that is 50 years old and will be played the first Sunday in February. While we watch the game every year we don’t always throw a big party. This year, however, my kiddos are really into football and our favorite teams are in the playoffs. So I am going to throw a party and invite all our crazy football fan friends. The big game is deserving of big snacks and decorations. I have decided to put those two things together and make a snack stadium. Follow along below and learn how to make a snack stadium for your big game celebration.
