Capon Springs – All Inclusive Family Trips – All Inclusive Resort Deals, Day #2 – Our second day of vacation at Capon Springs, West Virginia was just as pleasant at the first. We felt like we had stepped back to a time when families had good, wholesome fun together and there were no laptops, cellphones and iPads to drain our attention away from each other. Moms can relax without worries about carpooling, meal planning or house cleaning and Dads can spend the day lounging in a hammock and leave all the stresses of the workplace far, far away. Kids can do what kids were meant to do – swim, run and play. Everyone can sleep in, eat good food and be treated with courtesy and respect. Such a wonderful place to be! [Read more…]

Meet Ollie! He’s a retired standardbred race horse whose captured our hearts and found a home with my daughter! Ollie isn’t the kind of race horse that you typically think of where a jockey would ride on his back – he raced sulky carts. After his long career of high adventure racing Ollie was retired and given to a wonderful woman in the town where we live. After getting him settled in she began to search for a home for Ollie and found my daughter, Samantha. We make special treats for Ollie and spoil him! This is Samantha’s 1st video all on her own showing you How to Make Homemade Horse Treats – DIY Homemade Horse Treats. I hope you have a special horse in your life and if you don’t these are also great as a gift for someone in your life that loves horses too! ☺
Roy Rogers – What’s for dinner? It’s that age-old question every busy mother hates to hear. Here’s the scenario: You’ve rolled out of bed early, it’s summer break and the kids had orthodontist appointments at 9 and then you had your own doctor’s appointment at 12. On the way home, you picked up friends for a scheduled play-date and after they left you hurried everyone out of the house to dance practice. Now’s it’s late and everyone’s hungry and they want to know what’s for dinner. Good question! Mom needs a break and she deserves a night off so she makes a right at the light instead of a left and everyone goes to… Roy Rogers! SCORE! [Read more…]

Well, another fun day in the life of me, Maggie – a fun mom that understands the value of a day with her family in a very busy world. As the hot weather moves across the nation there’s no better time to hit the theme parks than now, yes NOW! We had the privilege of spending a day together at Kings Dominion in Virginia and I want to share my experience with you, mom to mom and family to family. I hadn’t been to Kings Dominion since I was a kid but the time had come to tell the kids about the Rebel Yell! Okay you may be laughing but that was BIG when I was a kid! The Rebel Yell was considered cutting edge thrilling fun and every now and again I like to show my kiddos what it was like when I was a child and what better way than to experience it, right?

Sometimes there are companies that try to go above and beyond just providing basic things for their customers. Busch Gardens and Papa John’s are two companies that always work incredibly hard to make people feel appreciated. Working together, Busch Gardens and Papa John’s set up a contest, called ‘Why My Family Deserves to be Invaded’, to give some local families 2-park fun cards and pizza for a whole year! All the families had to do was submit reasons as to why their family deserved the prize. What an amazing way to reach out to local families and give back the surrounding community!
