    Diaper Bag Must Haves with Three Kids

    It has been a long time since I needed a diaper bag. In fact, I never thought I’d need one again. When we decided to have a third baby it hadn’t even crossed my mind for several months that I’d need to start carrying a diaper bag again. It took me a few outings to perfect what I needed to put inside. I had forgotten how awesome having one is, especially with three kids. In addition to all the items I’m going to have listed below, I always add in a light sweater and snacks for my six and seven year olds. I currently am using a diaper backpack, and…

    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…

    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. I was looking for some crafts that I could do, and some craft they can do. I compiled a list of 15 Thanksgiving crafts that I loved. Truthfully, I’ll probably only do one of these adult crafts, because I am not very crafty. I may end up doing almost all of these kids ones with DJ and Brooklyn the week of Thanksgiving.

I wanted to find some things we could do that are still safe to participate in.  We will be skipping trick or treating all together. I won’t even be handing…

    DJ’s 5th Birthday

    I cannot believe DJ is officially five. I don’t know where the time has gone. It feels like just yesterday I was holding a brand new newborn in my arms. Now he’s a big boy. I am so proud of everything he’s learned and done in the last five years. DJ’s 5th birthday party was Minecraft themed. He was in heaven. He’s currently Minecraft obsessed. This year was definitely a little different from normal since we are in the middle of a pandemic. I still wanted him to have a great birthday either way. My main goal was to make sure I had green every where. In addition, I wanted…
