California Vacay – {The Way Home – Elko, Nevada Super 8}

Having spent a rather large portion of our holiday IN the vehicle, we felt it best to take our time on the way home. We spent 4 days driving, stayed in 3 hotels, and stopped at a few parks along the way to break it up. We were of course excited to see our husbands (and the kids, their dad’s), but I’m pretty certain we could have holidayed for another 3 weeks. It was really an amazing experience, one that…

California Vacay – {San Francisco Beach Day}

Well Concord may not have beaches, but lucky for us, San Francisco is less than an hour away. So for our last day before beginning the trek home, we decided to take in the beach.

Even now as I am thinking about it, I am in awe. What’s so…

Sure, we’ve had to buy them the odd thing over the years, but in truth most of their clothes have been gently loved and generously passed down from people we know. We LOVE it. Not only has it saved us a TON of money, but it has also allowed us to focus our spending…

Frecklebox {Free Colouring Pages}

My kids LOVE to colour and are often BEGGING me to print off new colouring pages. They like the typical cartoon pages but I always like to have something different to add to the mix. I like a little variety – besides, nobody wants to colour the same picture over and over…and over. I was really excited to receive an e-mail from Frecklebox spreading word about their new FREE & PERSONALIZED Colouring pages. I can’t wait to print these off…
