    Keeping Cool with

    Monday, July 15th, 2013

    It is going to be a HOT week here in Connecticut, and many points beyond. Whew! Now is the time to think about all the ways you know how to keep cool and try them ALL out. Grab your water and let’s keep cool this week.

    Keeping Cool with

    personalized camp water bottle Ok, water. It is essential for human life. We cannot live more than 36 hours without it. That is under ideal situations. When temperatures skyrocket, water becomes that much more important. So grab your water bottle and keep hydrated my friends. has a wide selection of personalized water bottles to choose from. So all you have to decide on after purchasing your new water bottle is if you like your water on the rocks, with lemon, mint or just straight up.


    children's outdoor table The heat might make your appetite seem to evaporate, but we still need to fuel our bodies to enjoy the summer fun. Forget indoor cooking though. Summertime is all about barbecues, picnics and dining after dark. So cut into those refreshing watermelons, hand out cool grapes by the bunch, and think nice crisp veggies to tempt your wilted appetite with. All served up at your children’s very own outdoor table, and you just might find the kids eating again, without you slaving over a hot stove.


    children's growth chart - solar system

    Another option is to avoid the heat of the day altogether with activities after dark. Get outside after the sun goes down and enjoy the cooler night air while taking in a little star gazing. Can you find Venus, Saturn or simply recognize the phases of the moon?  How are you at tracking down constellations like the Big Dipper, Orion’s Belt or Virgo (which you could spy tonight if you headed outside)? With the heat we will be feeling this week, you could be an expert at astronomy by summer’s end!


    state square personalized canvas by donna ingemanson Now how about that road trip we suggested the other day. There is still plenty of time to point the family car to points unknown. And do you know one of the other perks of a road trip? Most vehicles have air conditioning nowadays! So slide behind the wheel of your air conditioned ride and relax along the way to wherever. How about Louisiana to see the pelicans, bald cypress trees or the capital city, Baton Rouge? What about the Florida coast, where you might spy a mockingbird, cabbage palm or even a Florida panther. Armed with your a/c,  you can let the compass be your guide. Once your summer road trip has come to an end you can keep the memories alive with a personalized state square canvas by Donna Ingemanson. Just pick the state and you can enjoy the snapshot of it every day all year long.


    What is your favorite way to keep cool?

    Road Tripping

    Saturday, July 13th, 2013

    Summertime is wonderful for so many things; swimming, relaxing, getting together with friends. It is also a wonderful time to plan a family road trip. Whether the destination is the family cottage, a local campground or destinations unknown, road trips have long been a staple of many an American family. Why not join on a road trip today…

    Going on a Road Trip

    How about Newport for a destination? Ah, but the question is which one to choose? Should you point towards Newport, Rhode Island, part of the New England go-to summer destinations, filled with colonial homes, and a great place to take in some sailing or yachting? How about a little further afield to Newport, Oregon. Nestled on the Pacific Coast, this quiet town still has plenty to offer. How can it not, with the ocean on its doorstep, lighthouses to explore, andthe Oregon Coast Aquarium to marvel at!


    Where else might tempt your compass point? How about the bright lights, big city feel of Manhattan! If you want excitement, you’ll certainly find it here. One of the 5 boroughs of New York City, it is the smallest, but most densely populated of them. Home of Times Square, the Empire State Building, United Nations Headquarters, Wall Street, and the iconic Greenwich Village, there is literally something to see and do in Manhattan for anyone’s tastes.


    Once you have had enough of the energy of Manhattan, it is just a hope and a skip to the Hamptons on the other side of Long Island, New York. The playground for the rich and famous have been using The Hamptons as a summer retreat for years. With some of the most expensive zip codes in the country, you might not be able to make this part of the US your permanent home, but it certainly is fun to see how the other half lives as part of a summer road trip.


    It is difficult to make suggestions appropriate for all of’s fans though. We live in an amazing country with so many incredible sights to see from East to West, and North to South. You could take a road trip a simple as a trip to the beach, or as extensive as a journey to see all of our great states by land. The best bet is for us to provide you with a map and let you pick your own destination. Then the world is your oyster, as far as destinations go.

    Don’t forget to let us know where you go and how the trip goes!

    Summer Activities for Kids

    Friday, June 28th, 2013

    How long have your children been out of school for now? Are they still excited, or have they started to whine about being bored yet? Do you still have items on your “fun stuff to do with the kids” list? Do you need a few more ideas to add to it, before they drive you insane?

    Summer Activities For Kids

    personalized kitchen stickers

    Personalized kitchen stickers are perfect for labeling your strawberry jam!

    Young children love to help. They make natural gardeners, especially when it is time to harvest yummy goodness from the garden. While there might not be too much ready for harvesting in your back garden yet, June is the perfect month for berry picking. Strawberries are coming to a close in many areas, but blueberries are taking over in the picking department. Both are delicious to eat, and make for a fun family excursion to pick. Once you get home you can continue to eat them raw, or get creative with making pies, jams and jellies. A little strawberry jam mid-winter is enough to bring back warm summer memories and the fun you had together as a family.


    personalized double deck playing cards

    Anyone up for cards with these personalized double deck playing cards?

    We have had our fair share of rain so far this summer, which makes for not the best beach days, but perfect for indoor activities. Instead of watching the rain fall, why not grab a game and make the best of it with some family fun indoors. Teach your kids how to shuffle with these personalized double deck playing cards. They will be the envy of their friends next school year, especially when they show off how many new card games they have learned. Think Memory, Go Fish, Crazy Eights, Rummy, War, or even introduce the game of Cribbage for the more advanced card players out there.


    road hog tricycle

    Why not host a road hog tricycle play-date?

    How about arranging a play-date with some other neighborhood kids? Don’t feel like you need to spend every waking minute with your children. Sometimes they just need to spend time with friends their own age. Kids need to laugh, giggle and be silly, and doing that with someone your own age is sometimes the perfect remedy to boredom. All you need to do is provide snacks and a drink or two, and your kids can provide the rest of the magic, while you enjoy a little freedom from being entertainment organizer for a few hours.


    camping wall art

    Relive the fun memories all year with this camping wall art

    It wouldn’t be summer without a camping trip getting planned. There is just something about escaping from the everyday and exploring all that Mother Nature has to offer. Discover wildlife, go boating and swimming, or just relax by the campfire at night with a scary ghost story or two. A camping trip is not only fun, but a great way for your busy family to reconnect after a long school year has come to a close.


     What activities do you have planned for the kids this summer?
