Summer fun is easy to achieve at Fred Meyer. I can stock up on water toys, swimwear, sunscreen and more and only have to stand in one checkout line. These hot weather essentials help make our summer adventures and family life memorable and fun!
Our family road trip took us to the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, where we saw exhibits about dinosaurs, gems & minerals, an IMAX presentation on flight and visited the Planetarium. We also had fun at the museum’s interactive kid-focused Discovery Zone, a highlight of our visit!
After a family vacation it can be hard to get back into a regular daily routine. In summer, kids can fill an empty afternoon by watching an animated movie and enjoying some indoor time out of the sun. My kids recently watched the Incredibles and afterwards they eagerly ran off to play superheros in the yard. This super-family is coming back to the big screen in the new animated movie the INCREDIBLES 2!
What do you like to do when the weather gets warmer? Our family loves to travel and explore new places. Our recent family road trip took us to destinations in California, Utah & Colorado. Here are some of the highlights from our family road trip adventures!
The best travel destinations are places for families to make memories, get some exercise and enjoy some good old family fun. Zion National Park is a great place to visit and go on a family hike. We enjoyed exploring the canyon paths, walking in the river and taking in the gorgeous views on all sides.
Some of the best things are inspired by childhood; twirling in a dress, eating strawberries and playing in the sunshine. Matilda Jane Clothing transforms these happy ideas into adorable clothing designs for girls and women, whimsical accessories, lunch gear and even bedroom decor. We had a chance to catch up with Matilda Jane Clothing CAD Artist Maggie Szott. Her sketches and watercolor designs are used to make fabrics for twirly dresses and ruffle tops for happy and adventurous little girls.

If you have young kids then you know that kids like to stay super active. I’m excited to share a fun new Netflix show and a few glitter-inspired kids activities!
Easily make DIY sensory glitter slime using a few simple ingredients. Kids will love choosing their favorite colors and mixing in glitter, rhinestones or beads!
Teaching science to kids can be creative and fun! It’s easy to make school at home interesting and interactive to inspire a love for learning. I am not a natural teacher; I am super crafty, kind of disorganized and I go with the flow but I find ways to enforce my kids’ daily routine and make our homeschool schedule work. My oldest child is in kindergarten this year and she’s been learning how to write her letters, do basic math and explore simple scientific principles. We love doing experiments with color and learning about the 5 senses! Here are a few projects we’ve enjoyed to mix up our daily homeschool routine.
