Summer Fun with Avid4Adventure

Last summer, Ben got the chance to try out a new-to-Colorado Springs summer day camp.  He loved it and has asked about it for this summer.  He loved the kayaking, canoeing, hiking, mountain biking, and climbing elements, and it was great exposure to activities that are a little harder to do on our own.

We're thrilled to be partnering with Avid4Adventure again and highly recommend it for your kids.

Ice Castles - Dillon, Colorado {Review}

We headed up to our favorite ski resort last weekend.  Besides skiing, we planned to stay overnight and finally check out the Ice Castles in Dillon!

It was definitely an event worth seeing and we'd like to see it during the day now, since we chose the night tickets.

A Wrinkle in Time {Preview}

Did you ever read A Wrinkle in Time?  It was one of my favorites as a kid and I am so excited to see the new movie coming out this year.  The girl read it a couple of years ago and is planning on going with me, plus I'm pretty sure that the husband and son will love it too.

Ice Castles {Dillon, CO}

Most weekends in January and February, we take advantage of living in Colorado and go skiing.  Our favorite, and most visited, resort is in the Dillon area and we love spending the weekends there.

This year, we can't wait to check out the Ice Castles!

Christmas Books from Parragon Book Buddies

One of our longtime holiday traditions with the kids has been Christmas books.

When the oldest was a baby, I bought a bunch of seasonal books after the holidays and tucked them away.  The next year, I brought out a huge box of "new" books for her and our tradition began.  Each year, I added a few more and they'd look forward to pulling them out the next season.  They still do, and I still add new ones.  This year, Parragon Books sent us some new ones to add to our collection.

The Art of the Moulin Rouge {Review}

We spent part of our honeymoon in Paris and one of the things we had to do was visit the Moulin Rouge.  When the musical came out the following year, we saw it right away in the theater and loved knowing we had actually been there.

It's been quite a few years since we've been to Paris, but I was very happy to receive a copy of The Art of the Moulin Rouge to review and create artwork with.
