Michigan Museum Entry

The Michigan Historical Museum. WAY More Interesting Than It Sounds.

The Michigan Historical Museum doesn’t really have a ring to it. It just sounds boring; like the most interesting artifact might be a 300 year old piece of tattered parchment paper with three words of some treaty scratched on it. Don’t let the name fool you. This place rocks. We visited just before it was [Read On]

Here We Go WildKratts – With a $5.00 DISCOUNT on Tickets!

My kids are (gulp) 9 and 11 now.  Most of the sweet, early childhood shows are behind us now; replaced with crazy – and frankly, annoying – characters that drive me nuts.  One show hangs on, though. One show made it to late childhood. That show is Wild Kratts, and I am always impressed with [Read On]

Ohana Means Family, And Family Means…

I worked with MomSelect and Disney Parks to bring you this information.  All opinions are my own.   Ohana means family, and family means nobody gets left behind… or forgotten. That’s one of my favorite lines from a movie I have come to adore; Lilo and Stitch. I didn’t pay attention to it it at [Read On]

Big Hero 6 – Should You Take The Kids To See It?

We had a chance to see the new movie Big Hero 6 earlier this week.  I honestly hadn’t heard much about it, but when I asked my kids if they wanted to go, they were VERY excited.  I wondered if I had missed Big Hero 1 through 5? No; this is the first Big Hero [Read On]

Don’t Forget Treats For Your Dog!

 I have been compensated to share these ideas with you. All opinions are my own. Halloween is an important tradition in our family.  I used to be really terrible at celebrating it, but as my kids have gotten older I have come to love it.  We have an annual Spooky dinner and hang out with [Read On]

A Vineyard Tour : Fenn Valley

My husband and I have an annual tradition. We got married in the fall because we both love this season, and our anniversary date is almost always a visit to a beautiful vineyard in Southwest Michigan.  We’ve gone so many times (we’ve been married twelve years…) that we know some of the tour guides; yet [Read On]

Pirate’s Code: The Adventures of Mickey Matson. If You Live In Michigan And Have Kids – You MUST See This Movie!

If you’re from here, you get it.  Michigan flies under the radar sometimes as having a distinct ‘feel’ to it – but it’s there. Michigan-ness.  It’s not often you get a surge of Michigan pride while watching a movie but it happened tonight. We had the priveledge (I don’t say that lightly) of attending the [Read On]
