If you follow me for any length of time, you know I am NOT a go-to-the-store shopper, but prefer to do ALL my gift giving shopping online. The problem is, I don’t know what to buy anybody. In the past, I’ve always ended up giving gift cards for graduation and Father’s Day. Not any more as I found a great resource, My Gift Stop!
As far as family holiday destinations are concerned, Florida is easily one of the most attractive out there. The Golden State attracts millions of American visitors and an even greater number of international guests for fun in the sun each year. With miles of beaches and plenty of family attractions along the east coast, it’s hardly any wonder.
Childhood is a magical time, and parents should try to take advantage of that fact when it comes to creating a bedroom wonderland for their children. Try to think outside of the box and come up with lots of fresh ideas that will make the little ones feel excited. You know your child better than anyone else, and so you’re the best person to execute all the final decisions.
Best Day Ever Ranch – The Best Way to Camp! I was trying to find a way to ‘sort of’ camp and spend some time outside, but still have the nerdy luxury of air conditioning and WiFi. (Two absolute stables in a geeky Dad’s life.) Well my good friends at FunCityStuff, either in humor or in helpfulness, invited Codeman and I out to Best Day Ever Ranch for fun and outdoor activities.
The Game of Life is one of the oldest board games in American history. It’s also one of the most popular games from Milton Bradley. Unlike Monopoly, the Game of Life will end at a particular point, which means you can generally finish the game in an evening.
Almost any family that has a closet filled with board games owns a Monopoly game. If they’re like me, they may even have Monopoly Junior game for players under 8 years old. So, why is a game that’s been on store shelves since 1933 still so popular today? Well, it’s fun to play, of course. But there are also a lot of life lessons to learn from Monopoly.
Being a five year-old kid is a magical time of learning. The learning window is wide open in Kindergarten. Children begin reading, meeting classmates, and learning how to interact in society. So much early life experience occurs during their playtime at this age. I recommend parents not only read to their kids 30 minutes everyday, but that they also take an hour a week and play family board games.
If the adage, which I believe, that “consistent blogging helps your business” then tools that help you stay on top of your blogging are something to consider.

I could not imagine planning out or promoting my post through social media without utilizing this wonderful gizmo.
