    Family Friendly Las Vegas | Las Vegas Aviators Games

    My family loves baseball. Back when we still lived in New York, David & I would go to Yankee games all the time. It was one of our favorite things to do. After moving to Las Vegas we were bummed there was no MLB team here; however, there is an MiLB team. In the 2019 season the 51’s changed their name to Aviators and got a new ballpark. We never went to a game when they were the 51’s, but we went to our first game in April 2019 when they moved locations. Our kids were only 2 and 4 that year so we decided to wait another year to…

    Family Friendly Las Vegas | Hard Rock Café

    In the beginning of March, I was lucky enough to be invited to the Hard Rock Café here in Las Vegas for the launch of the Messi Burger.

This was my second time eating there. The first time I went with my mom and DJ, when DJ was only 6 months old. Both times the food was very good. While we waited for the event to start, we sat at the bar. I…

    15 Thanksgiving Crafts You Need to Make

    Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Honestly, I’m not a huge Thanksgiving person; however, I want DJ and Brooklyn to love every holiday.

DJ’s school gives him off that entire week. That means we will have plenty of time to craft. 15 Thanksgiving Crafts Adults Wood Pumpkin for…
