With expecting my fifth child in September I have been looking for ways to stay nice and cool this summer. We do not have A/C in our new home so I know there will be days that I will need a way to cool not only my body off but the kids as well. Now thanks to our new Fruiti Freeze from Viatek we will be able to make delicious homemade frozen soft serve style desserts to stay nice and cool.

When you have a family day planned for the beach, lake or pool and rain cancels your plans don't stress! You can still keep the kids entertained and your sanity as well by taking a fun trip to your local Chuck E Cheese's store. My kids love spending time at our local Chuck E Cheese's playing games, eating pizza and winning tickets. I have to say that I enjoy helping the younger ones win their tickets. I don't know an adult who doesn't love playing the games with the kids.

With being a mom of 4 children it seems like I am always on the go and looking for a great bag to take with me. Lately we are at baseball at least 4-6 days out of the week for the boys and the girls have to go along. With Angel still in diapers and Sweet Pea loving to roll down the hills and play in mud I need to have a good diaper bag with me that is multi-functional. With that said let me introduce you to the Harbor Side Tote from Vilah Bloom.

It seems like we all come across paths in our lives where we need to step back and reevaluate what we are doing. When you have children it seems like that happens more frequently. Not only do you have to worry about how things are affecting you but your children as well. In today's society I feel like I am constantly sitting here going "what is wrong with people and what has happened to our country". We have become a country so filled with sin and are immune to it and feel that we will not suffer any consequences for our actions and that scares me greatly.

Recently I received the book Baby Wren and the Great Gift to review with by boys and it quickly became a favorite in our home. Every child wishes they could be someone else whether it's a super hero, an animal or an object, and that's the same way baby wren felt in this book. In the book Baby Wren was no different then the children we are raising today. Baby Wren was born on a ledge and just wanted to fit in. She wished she could dive with the fish, fly with the Eagles, play with the ring-tail cats, but she couldn't.

When the temps are cold outside and you just can't get outside to play what do you do for fun with your family? Well if you are like me and DO NOT like the cold weather AT ALL you sit inside cooped up going crazy with kids that have a bunch of stored energy. Which makes you go crazy because there is only so much you can do to keep 4 kids busy inside a home. Luckily for us Ohio has some great indoor water-parks within a short driving distance from our home. So we surprised the kids with a surprise weekend getaway at Castaway Bay.
