If you know anything about my family, you know that we travel a lot. We first started camping as a family when our oldest (and then, only) daughter was just under a year old. And ever since then, we’ve been hooked. Our summers are spent on the road with our camper in tow, hopping from campground to campground. And while traveling with kids can certainly come with its bumps in the road, we have managed to find methods along the way to make family road trips more enjoyable for everyone.

We were completely overwhelmed by the response we received on our Mother’s Day Giveaway over the last two weeks. It’s really no surprise, though. Moms love free stuff. And heck – we deserve it! There was no way we could have chosen a winner on our own, so we compiled the hundreds of comments and entries into one database and chose two numbers at random.
I first heard about PRIMP Blow Dry Bar via social media and instantly knew it was going to be at the top of my list of must-dos. Lo and behold a few weeks later, this Buffalo Mom was graciously invited to test it out.
Spoiler Alert – I love this place and have gone back several times since!
This past weekend, we were given four tickets to see the performance of “Junie B. Jones Is Not a Crook” at the Theatre Of Youth. Our excited kindergartener practically skipped her way into the theatre, excited to see the characters she’s been reading about in school come to life on the stage. Our son (age 3.5), was equally as excited – although we were admittedly a bit anxious to see how he would sit for an hour+ long performance.
Back in September, which feels like it was yesterday, we celebrated our daughter’s 5th birthday in the best way – by having someone else host the party for us! I somewhat reluctantly relinquished my role of ultimate party planner/decorator, handed the decor off to a total stranger, and crossed my fingers it would turn out okay.
