    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?

    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?

    The Gift of Babies

    Friday, June 7th, 2013

    On June 7th, James Young Simpson (Obstetrician [used chloroform], b. 1811), Virginia Apgar (American physician & childbirth specialist, b. 1909), Virginia McKenna (Actress [Born Free], b. 1931), Johnny Clegg (South African Musician [Album 'Third World Child'], b. 19530), and Louise Erdrich (Author [Love Medicine], b. 1954) were born. They are all great people and have contributed much to the world. Do you see the link between them (think babies)?

    birthday banner – vintage sports

    personalized luggage tags – wedding rings

    They share their birthdays with another very special date in American history. On June 7th, 1965 the Supreme Court of the United States decided that the law against contraceptives was unconstitutional. The Griswold vs Connecticut case led the way to the legalization for married couples to access birth control. As of 1965, contraception was legal and became a matter of choice for consenting “married” adults (oral contraceptives had been approved by the FDA in 1960).


    drawstring gown (blue trim)

    As much as loves pregnancy and babies, we can certainly appreciate what that ruling has meant for future generations. Children are a blessing and a joy when sought by a loving couple. We all know that sometimes timing can be key to being able to provide for children though. Having the opportunity to choose when to conceive, or not, just makes the process that much easier for all involved. While there have been many blessings in disguise from “oops” babies, taking the time to ensure that you are able to offer your all means a lot too. Whether it is waiting to have a baby until after you finish school, or once you have established a career, these choices can be wise ones to make, financially, emotionally and even socially. Even having the option to decide the number of children to bear can potentially benefit everyone in your family. Birth control has certainly shown its benefits over the years.


    ultimate swaddling blanket by swaddle designs

    Whether you choose to have babies when you are younger, older, alone, or with a partner, it is an important decision to make. Children are a huge responsibility that deserve a little forethought before being brought into the world. Once they are here you must feed, clothe, nurture, educate , love and cherish them for years to come. In fact, hopefully that love just continues to grow as your children do. Whether they turn out to be painters (Paul Gauguin [Post-Impressionist], b. 1848), actors (Liam Neeson, b. 1952), musicians (Prince, b. 1958), tennis players (Anna Kournikova, b. 1981) or just your very own special kids, they are treasures that have been bestowed upon you. Treat those gifts with care.

    No man should bring children into the world who is unwilling to persevere to the end in their nature and education. ~ Plato
