Eye-Spy Nature Scavenger Hunt

This Eye-Spy Nature Scavenger Hunt will add some excitement to your next family hike or camping trip. Nature Scavenger Hunt There is really nothing better, in my opinion, than being high up in the mountains surrounded by nature and the beauties of the earth.  When we visit family in Utah, we try to take advantage of the mountains as much as we can. My boys are used to heat, dirt and tumbleweeds, while cool summer evenings, pine trees and quaking aspen are foreign to them.  So it is no surprise that they want to go hiking in the mountains as often as we can.  I put together a fun Eye-Spy Nature Scavenger Hunt for them to add some excitement to our hikes and camping trips.

“Man”Cakes – The Perfect Father’s Day Breakfast

Father’s Day is right around the corner and one tradition we have in our house is making fun ManCakes for our dad. ManCakes for Father’s Day When I was young one of my favorite memories is when my dad would be home on Saturday mornings and would make us all sorts of different shaped pancakes.  I normally got a softball and bat or a treble clef since I loved softball and music.  My sister would often get a ballerina but he could make pretty much anything. Sometimes we’d just get a fun mancake that we could dress up or make or own.  I think that is where my love of making fun pancakes came about.  We also loved going to Denny’s or Village Inn and getting their ManCakes for breakfast.

The Lazy Days of Summer?

While watching the summer Olympics this year and traveling with my boys for 5 weeks I decided that keeping up with and entertaining 4 boys all day everyday should be an Olympic event. And I’m pretty sure this summer I would have taken home the gold. 😉  What happened to the lazy days of summer??  More like the crazy days of summer. These boys were busy, busy, busy.  Their days and nights were filled with water fights, gardening, bon fires, rodeos, parks, splash pads, zoo trips, reading books, playing with cousins, art projects, playdoh, board games, and road trips. They splashed and swam. Some slid, (I crashed). […]
