Slide In Slow Motion=Hilarious Park Fun

?? As our summer is coming to an end I knew I had to share this funny post. We found an amazing local park that not only has swings, climbers, wheels to spin, and slides, it also boarders the Green Line. Every 8-10 minutes it looked like a magic spell was cast over all of...

Learning With Water

One of my favorite things to do this summer has been watching my son’s fascination with one of our most basic elements, water. This kid has had a bath every night since it was born (essential in our sleep routine) but seeing water move in these new ways outdoors was amazing! Over a few weeks...
