Along with the pumpkin patch, farm animals, hay maze,barrel train and bounce house, we have added the valley’s one and only Pizza Farm.
Come out and see how pizza is grown!

Today there will be no new post.
The link below is a teacher and a mother’s perspective that I wrote two years ago about the unthinkable moments.
Teaching our youth about the atrocities, the heroes, and working on communicating openly about such events in our history. It is imperative. Thoughts.
Where were you when the world stopped turning?

For our party we served fabulous, healthy recipes- broke out all of our sports balls/jump-ropes/frisbees- and played our little hearts out! All of the adults kept talking about how user-friendly the LeapBands are. Which is completely true. You set-up your LeapBand online and your child earns the ability to get new animals and earns food and rewards.
I wanted to show you just how excited he was when he got a band, “Just like mom and dad!” He literally talked our ears off for thirty minutes about how happy he was… we didn’t even take it out of the box and he was talking about his special band and how excited he was to help the animals.

The summer is still going on strong here in the desert. The temperatures are still in the 100s but staying inside with two active toddlers is just NOT a good idea if you care about your sanity. Our daily adventures during the week include going to Toddler Time at our local community center, riding bikes to the park, trips to the zoo, going to the splash pad, and even out exploring the mall. I mean sometimes, just sometimes, it is nice to go somewhere with air conditioning. This is my daily packing list for our outings that help me stay sane.
Wet Bags for swim suits, stinky diapers, or destroyed clothes(yes, that happens). Med Kit. Wipes. Epi-Pens. Camelbacks, Homemade Chex Mix:Blueberries, Chex, Raisins. Little Green Pouches with Blueberry-Greek Yogurt Mix. Rice Crackers.
Adorable Accessories. Books. Favorite Aden-Anais Swaddle Blanket. Necessities. Plus add 5 disposable diapers for Sweet Em- or Two Cloth Diapers- depending on where we are going.
I LOVE seeing what people have in their diaper bags!
Do you have any fun finds?
