    Children’s Book of the Week: Lacey Walker, Nonstop Talker

     I’m back with another children’s book of the week. This week’s book is Lacey Walker, Nonstop Talker written by Christianne Jones, and illustrated by Richard Watson. As usual, I am using Kindle Unlimited to read this book. I haven’t actually read this book with DJ and Brooklyn yet, but I do plan on it tonight. However, I have read this book myself to make sure it was a good fit for them and this blog. Lacey Walker, Nonstop Talker  Lacey Walker, Nonstop Talker follows around a little owl named Lacey. She has a habit of talking nonstop. She constantly needs to be reminded to do what she needs to do and to…

    Children’s Book of the Week: Bear & Hare Share! by Emily Gravett

    I started a new series on my blog in the middle of March called the book of the week, and then I never posted a never book of the week again. I’d call that a huge fail. I’m back on it now though, and you’ll definitely be getting a consistent book of the week every single week. I’m sticking to children’s books for now until I find a book that I really love. My goal is to hopefully have an adult book of the week around once a month. That will give me enough time to actually find one I love, read it, and write a good post about it.…

    Family Friendly Las Vegas: The Flamingo Wildlife Habitat

    Last month my Mom came to visit. Whenever she is here we always stay on the Las Vegas Strip as a family. Check out my tips for staying on the strip with young children.

There is something so magical about seeing something through your little one’s eyes. It is definitely going to be somewhere we go at least once or twice a year when my Mom comes into town. The Flamingo Wildlife Habitat is located at the Flamingo Hotel…

    Michaels Kids Club

    I’m always looking for new things to do with DJ & Brooklyn that is both fun and inexpensive. I want to take them to different places. I finally listened to my friend about going to the Michaels Kids Club on Saturday. It was definitely a lot of fun. They have two different crafts depending on the age group. When we went the theme was hedgehogs. DJ was ecstatic. Every Saturday from 10 am to noon Michaels has their Kids Club. They have a 3+ craft for $2 and a 6+ craft for $5. We did the 3+ hedgehog craft for DJ, and they gave Brooklyn markers and paper to color.…
