… Everyone else calls a Butterfly Chalkboard Printable

I’m over at Ask Anna again today with a fun chalkboard printable for you.  Some things have happened lately and it’s made me realize that what seems to be a major life event can turn out to be merely a bump in the road.  I have recently seen the various reactions people can give to […]

Shepherd’s Pie Tinfoil Dinner

We recently went to one of my dad’s family reunions.  We have one every year and have ever since I can remember.  We used to go to my great-grandpa’s farm and camp out on the property there, but over the past decade and a half we’ve begun exploring other areas around the western US.  It’s […]

Folding a Fitted Sheet into a Roll

It’s mid-morning on a warm summer day.  Your family has decided to brave the great outdoors in nothing but a tent.  Good, old-fashioned camping – none of this “glamping” stuff people rave about now.  The sky is partly cloudy and the temperatures are in the high 80’s.  The humidity also hovers in the high 80’s. […]

BBQ season is in full swing and I am loving it.  We have been cooking on the grill at least once a week lately and some times three, four or five times a week.  We’ve been loving the potluck and BYOM (bring your own meat) style BBQ.  It’s a great way to hang out with […]

12 Things I Never Leave Home When I'm Traveling With Kids

12 Things I Never Leave Home When I’m Traveling {with kids}

Travel season in here.  After Mr. Napping and I got married, we would make spontaneous trips together on occasion.  When kids started to join our family, it didn’t take us long to realize that spontaneously traveling with kids is incredibly hard and stressful.  Over the past (almost) six years, I’ve developed a list of things […]

This Summer Take OREO Two Pack on the Go!

Everyone has a favorite cookie.  OREOs are undeniably one of my favorites.  They remind me of late nights sitting up, watching TV with my dad, sneaking a cookie or two when I was supposed to be in bed.  Or trips to my grandparent’s small engine repair shop and raiding their cookies hidden in the drawer. […]

Free To Be My {Messy} Boys

I’ve heard about parents of boys that love to sit and build with Legos or take things apart or even draw.  Those boys are not my boys.  It’s a struggle to get them to sit still long enough to spill the paint-with-water cup before they want to be on to doing something else.  They move […]
