Maybe I dreamt it up, maybe I found it on Pinterest, maybe it was a random thing my friend told me about... If I like it, it's here in the "Stuff I Like" category.

    Brrr! Let’s craft!

    This winter has been awesome so far. Not only have the temperatures been tolerable but the snow has been great for sledding and the roads have been pretty dry and safe. That being said, my kids don’t like to stay outside for very long play sessions even on the warmest of days. Enter craft time. Today we broke into something I purchased well before Christmas but never found the right time to play with it – Crayola Air Dry Clay (<– That’s an affiliate link. See my note about what that means on my “About Our Days” page). When I bought it, Amazon was running a sale so I actually got it for…

Other than toilet shenanigans, we have been busy enjoying the holidays.

Frankenmuth! We…

    Let’s play!

    This time of year has always been my favorite.  Cooler days that don’t make you want to jump in the closest funky puddle of water to cool off make playing outside way more fun! A few places that we have visited lately are our local parks, Green Field Village and the St Pats Fair. Here are some pictures from Clara Miller Park in Commerce Twp.  I’m not sure if anyone has visited this park in a while.  It’s older and not as shiny as some of the newer parks but it has a little more to offer. Lucy has been really into “tennis”. I put the quotations marks on there…
