Well, we did it. We took the plunge and headed to Disneyland with SIX KIDS. What a blast!
My kids love to eat. And they love to cook. They also love to make some messes along the way. Recently, I came to terms with that cook-mess-eat reality. Afterall, I’m probably going to make a mess, too. So, I might as well say, “Yes!” and let them help. We can make memories and messes all at the same time. Oh, yes, yes, we can.
Even though I try to plan all sorts of fun family activities, the truth is that I often tell my kids, “No.” There are only so many hours in my day. And, truth be told, dishes and laundry often pre-empt the fun stuff. I’m trying to grow in this area and redeem the days. These days of little ones will be gone before I know it, and I’m so often distracted by the busy-ness of life. So, I’m so excited to share this story with you.
Now’s the season for getting out and about. The weather is warming up. Spring fever has hit. And the outdoors beckons you to load up the family and head out for adventure.
But, do you ever find yourself…
at the beach or other fun locale, and the weather turns cold, and tshirts and shorts just won’t cut it?
on a family field trip at a location where budget-friendly meals are a foreign concept?
at the park for an impromptu outing and find that you have no balls or toys in the car?
on a road trip without sufficient activities for the kids to amuse themselves with?
on your way to a faraway special event only to find out that someone made it into the car without any shoes?

That’s us! Many moons ago on one of our last trips to Disneyland. Can’t believe that it’s been 15 years! But, we’re getting ready to hit “the Happiest Place on Earth” in the next month or two. We’ve never taken the kids, so we want to do it up right. Yesterday I asked you all […]
I grew up as a Disneyland girl. My dad was — and still is — a kid when it came to Mickey, Donald, and roller coasters. His excitement about a day at “the Happiest Place on Earth” was contagious. And we were raring to go whenever he said so. We lived about an hour’s drive away […]
Photo source: Family Fun Magazine Many people think of St Patrick’s Day and images of leprechauns, pots of gold, and rainbows come to mind. And those are certainly fun, don’t get me wrong. But, there’s so much more to the patron saint of Ireland than meets the eye — or has been related through modern […]
