Healthy Summer Snack: Apple Camper

Healthy Summer Snack: Apple Camper

Camping.  It’s not my favorite pastime, but we did take the family camping this summer.  In tents, not a camper. My idea of camping is letting the kids sleep in a tent in our backyard, and I sleep in my bed!! One of my sisters takes their family camping quite often and they actually invested in a […]

Submerged Kids Lunch: Snorkeler Sandwich

Goggles are just funny when you think about it. Take any ordinary group of kids, put them in a pool, and suddenly they’re transformed into these drippy little aliens with big googly eyes. I can hardly keep a straight face when one of them comes padding up to me, breathless, asking if I just saw […]

I love going to the beach in summer — the sun shining, the crashing surf, the feeling of sand between my toes. But one thing I’m not fond of when we go to the beach are crabs. We even found a crab in one of the salt water pools we were swimming in! No thank you!! Honestly, […]
