Break the Boredom of Summer with Avid 4 Adventure Camps!

Dare To Share!

Winter is coming to an end, FINALLY!!

I don’t know about you, but I am looking forward to a break from the cold as well as the school grind as much, if not more than my kids! I love watching my children be adventurous during summer, experiencing and learning through play!

There is one thing about summer I don’t look forward to, however. Five whiny little voices complaining that they are bored; “There’s nothing to do!” “It’s too hot to play outside” “There’s nothing fun around here!”

Ugh! This drives me nuts. I want my children to play outside, to be adventurous and learn from their environment. I want them to scrape their knees, climb trees, make friends, and BE CHILDREN for Pete’s sake!

Thankfully, I have found the perfect solution! Aviid4 Adventure Camps throughout Colorado and California! These camps teach pre-K-12th graders the power of authentic outdoor adventure with climbing, paddling, biking, and hiking! I wish I was a kid again so I could go too!

Plus, I have a special offer for my readers at the bottom of this post! You can sign up at www.avid4.com or call 800-977-9873 Now!

Valentines Day Chocolate Pizza

Dare To Share!

For our family, Valentines Day is more about having a fun day with lots of treats and crafts than it as about LOVE.

I have fun buying silly gifts and heart shaped chocolate and making a dinner inspired by flowers, hearts, and anything else lovey dovey.

My favorite dessert to make is also super simple, which gives it extra points in my book!

Chocolate pizza! All you need are 4 ingredients (unless you’re gonna go all “supermom” and make the crust from scratch!) and a little love…yeah, yeah, sappy, I know. Continue reading “Valentines Day Chocolate Pizza”

His surgery went fine, by the way, and he is recovering quickly. In fact, our biggest problem is keeping him still enough to heal properly!

From our own experience I learned a few things that I would like to share with you just in case you ever have to go through such an ordeal. Or perhaps you know someone who has an upcoming visit that could use a little advice. Continue reading “A Glimpse Into Our Child’s Surgery”
