    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. 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…

    5 COVID Safe Things to do this Halloween Season in Las Vegas

    We are in the midst of Halloween season; however, this year is much different from normal. Usually, I’m getting ready to go to trunk or treats during the month, and trick or treating on Halloween night. Halloween is even on a Saturday this year. I figured it would be a long day of on and off trick or treating. Unfortunately, COVID is still a problem. In addition, we have a few high risk people in our family to worry about. 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…

    A Weekend at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino

      My family and I recently spent a weekend at the Westgate Resort and Casino here in Las Vegas. I was nervous at first with everything going on.

    5 Tips for Driving Cross Country with Kids

    Last October, before COVID-19, my family drove from Las Vegas to New York. We rented a mini-van, and piled 4 adults and two young children inside. It took us three nights on the way there, and four nights on the way back. It was different then I thought it would be, but one thing that really helped was being prepared for anything. I’m not sure if I would ever drive that far again with my kids, but now I think I’m okay for a trip that we need to stop for at least one night. I came up with five tips for all my fellow parents who plan on driving…
