The 2015 Disney Social Media Moms Celebration in Walt Disney World was as magical as ever with characters, a movie screening, parties, and lots of learning.

Hiking at Sherburne Nature Center, Tyngsboro, MA

Bowed tree

I’m not much of an outdoorsy person, but one thing I do love is going on a hike as a family. As spring arrives each year, I can’t wait to get outside, enjoy the fresh air, and get out away from the craziness of daily life. We’re not climbing mountains, but I do like rambling…

Big Apple Circus Metamorphosis Comes to Boston [Giveaway]

Metamorphosis_Artwork_18x24_hi-res.jpg

I’ve mentioned a few times that LadyBug loves the trapeze, but now both of my kids are taking circus classes. LadyBug is into the tricks, especially silks, trapeze, and stilts. Bug prefers the clowning, but now has taken to the silks as well. What I love is that with two vastly different personalities and skill…

A Visit to the Ice Castle in Lincoln, NH

Ice Castle, Lincoln, NH

Last weekend, we bundled up and made our way up to Lincoln, NH. We weren’t skiing, or skating, or snow tubing. We were up there to visit the newly opened Ice Castle. It’s definitely a site to see! The first thing I have to say is that I expected caves. Based on the name and…

Geeking Out at the New England International Auto Show in Boston [Giveaway]

2015 Chevy Trax

When I bought my first car, my highest priority was that I didn’t want to haggle a lot over the price. Now that we’re a suburban family of four, my priorities are much different.

I’ve watched the movie every Christmas season for as long as I can remember and…

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical [Review]

KAP_1980.jpg

Last night, my dad and I slogged through rain and flooded streets to get my kids to see Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical in Boston. We could have used a sleigh with some reindeer assistance because the traffic was awful and we ended up a few minutes late. Luckily, we zipped into the theater…

KAP_2847.jpg

Did you know that it’s the 50th anniversary of the Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer television special? There will be a lot of celebrating this year for the famous reindeer and his buddies (I’m particularly excited about the set of U.S. Postal Service stamps), but what better way than to catch the whole gang live at…

Annie the Musical in Boston [Review]

  We had the great pleasure of attending the opening night of Annie in Boston this past week. It started with the arrival of Isse Swickle as Annie and Gilgamesh Tagget as Oliver Warbucks via 1937 Packard. The two strolled the red carpet, posing for pictures and signing autographs before heading off to get ready…
