I love wine (Cakebread if you want to bring me some) I love fashion, I love food (butternut squash ravioli if you’re cooking) and I even love exercise. But there is nothing and I mean nothing that I love more than the kids!! My kids, your kids, I even love the kid across the street. No seriously I do. Her name is Reese and she’s 2 and she is definitely invited to my next tea party! The snow has melted and now it’s time to get out with the children. But there is so much to do one might ask “Where to start?” Well below are some really fun and different activities for both parent and child. Check them out!

So you’ve stopped going to the club because it’s too hard to find a sitter and frankly, by the time the clubs open, you’re pooped!!!

Deejays mix throw back jams, and there’s bubbles, face painting, props and games involved! The feather boa is mine!
