Bird Words

Watching from inside — our cat is a big fan of feathered friends. (So are we)!  Sometimes we can sit quietly in our backyard and watch them come and go!  I have two bird feeders out (and I sprinkle a little bird seed too). One day after school Henry and I were out back and I said, “Oh!  What a…

Enjoy family fun at any time of the year!  It’s all hidden inside this enormous city!   January – March: If snow is NOT your thing… hit up a museum or a musical!  There are countless options, but the Children’s Museum is in “our backyard” and it’s my son’s favorite!  Aladdin the Broadway Musical, and Lion King tend to be…

Dippy Drippy Pumpkins

From my last post — I mentioned that we had a Soccer ‘N Pumpkins in the Park play day… I saw a cool idea on Pinterest and wanted to do a test run before-hand!  Hmmmm– Michael’s craft store is up near W. 100th Street, I am at W. 77th…  Maybe I could copy the idea with different paint from a store…

Bedtime Blues

The midnight conversation… Henry:  “Mom, Mom!  ….Mom….Mom… Can you please come up (in my loft)? Seth: “Henry I’ll come up.  Daddy can come up… Daddy can come up.” Henry: “Nooooooooo.” Seth: “Daddy can cuddle.” Henry: “Ugggggggh.  But I don’t want you.  I just want Mom.” Seth: “But Daddy can give hugs.” Henry: “But sometimes I am afraid to cuddle with…

Construction in Vegas!!

Who knew that construction could be this fun?  …And Sunday we got to experience it first hand at a pretty cool birthday party! One of Henry’s newest friends (Connor) invited us to have a blast today! A bright, beautiful sunny day (with hardly any clouds) in a neighboring park set the scene…. There was a super fun play ground, and lots of…

Vegas Valentines

I joined a “Mommy Group” that mainly meets up on weekends to try to make new Las Vegas friends!  Our first meeting was really great… Super nice ladies, very diverse backgrounds, and very cute kids similar in age to Henry.  Henry was so busy playing on the playground structures though — he didn’t connect too tightly just yet.  Henry just gets…

Disney is Tricky

Is it possible for a kid to NOT like Disney? We took Henry to Disneyland when he was FREE (the summer before his third birthday) with his two older sisters; He seemed a bit agitated for most of the day.  We took turns watching him, buying him bubbles, and riding a few rides.  We were not really convinced he liked…

Have You “Sin” This?

Las Vegas is as an adult HOT SPOT — with plenty of grown up attractions as we all know.  But if you are looking for even more to do — rather than the traditional Sin City stuff — here are some pretty cool “family friendly” activities (even some that we have experienced first hand)! -Downtown Container Park Above: night picture….the…

To SILVER from GOLD

Yukon Cornelius sings “Silver and Gold” in the unforgettable Christmas Special (Rudolph)… it’s been running through my head lately.  Not only because it’s holiday time, but because I am moving from the Golden State to the Silver State! A few months ago Seth’s Cirque job became long-term (it started out as a temporary 3-4 month gig).  It’s funny but not…
