Rolling Hills Water Park

It was late July and I had just posted a meet up with our playgroup, our destination, Rolling Hills Water Park in Ypsilanti, MI. As a mom I was slightly terrified, how was I going to watch all three kiddos go in three different directions at a water park? Turns out one of the best thing I ever did was to make the event a playdate meet up! Many eyes and hands make for light work when it comes to watching children. Playgroup moms are like an extension of oneself. We each divided and conquered the water park that day. Two moms took a group of kiddos to the lazy river, another two took kids to the water slides, two stayed by the splash area with toddlers, and it was such a relaxing, enjoyable, and fun day for all of us, moms and kiddos. Seven years later and we are still continuing the tradition!

UPDATE: OPENS June 21st, ALL tickets must be purchased ONLINE!!

Father’s Day Gift Dad will Love & it Doesn’t Cost a Dime

Money a little tight? Has dad reached his tie and coffee mug limit? Looking for something entirely original that dad is sure to love and treasure for a lifetime this Father’s Day? Why not make him a video? A short film, skit, or like we did, a music video. Nothing says “I love you”, you’re appreciated, and extra special than giving your quality time.  Worried it won’t be good enough? You won’t after you see ours, lol!  I mean, dads love unconditionally so he’ll understand that it’s the thought that counts.

Summer 2021 Busy Bag for Kids

“Mom, I’m bored!” “Mom, the Wi-Fi isn’t working!!” (This legit just happened to us the other day, modem and router died at the same time and it was practically the end of the world as we knew it, lol!) “Mom is it cool if we surf down the stair on sleeping bags?”  For those  moments during Summer Break when you need to bust their boredom, when the Wi-Fi goes out, or when their imaginations highjack all common sense, busy bags to the rescue! So, what exactly are Busy Bags? Busy Bags are bags filled with age appropriate activities, arts, crafts, games, etc. to occupy your kiddos.  If the thought of having to research various activities and purchase all those supplies to place in your kiddo’s busy bag sounds overwhelming and totally something you don’t want to be doing I am right there with ya!! Which is why I invited other mommas to participate in a Summer Busy Bag Swap, after all, many hands make for light work! A couple years ago was our first Busy Bag Swap and it turned out so successful that we did it again and again…and with so many families opting to Staycation for Summer Break this year I’m looking to do this again! Who’s interested?
