With my kids home during the day and on the weekends during the summer, it’s hard for me to come up with fun activities and outings to keep them entertained while staying on budget. Parents, does this sound familiar? This summer the Philadelphia Museum of Art is kicking-off Art Splash, a new series of exhibitions, festivals, […]
The 4th of July is this week… this summer is flying by so fast! I don’t know about you, but I am getting excited for some delicious barbecue, colorful fireworks and making more great memories with family and friends. There’s no better way to spend America’s birthday in my opinion! As I start my party […]
My family spent the 4th of July in Atlantic City as guests of the Atlantic City Alliance. Before our trip, I wrote about how Atlantic City is working to transform its image, and I was not disappointed by the spectacular new Duality show at Boardwalk Hall.
“This summer, journey to the Bronx Zoo’s Wild Forest to check out giant LEGO sculptures of tigers, flamingos, gorillas, and other exotic wildlife, then visit their real-life counterparts around the zoo. Build your own LEGO sculptures at our construction zone, and enjoy Wildlife Theater performances and the hit musical puppet show, Avenue Zoo.”
I don’t particularly enjoy large cleaning projects, but I do enjoy eating outside and playing with my kids in the pool. So I decided that I would use the Arm & Hammer Switch & Save Challenge as an opportunity to clean my outdoor patio furniture and my children’s pool toys.

Did you know that although more than 21 million children in the US get free or reduced-price school lunches, only 3 million get a free summer meal?
Most of us can probably count on our children being fed to their bodies’ content at any moment of any day. But millions of kids and parents face the summer with worry; the breakfasts and lunches being fed to them during school will be missing.
Summer is my favorite season. My kids love swimming, playing and dining outside. Aside from battling pesky mosquitoes during our evening meals, our biggest outdoor challenge is finding a way to clean patio furniture and grimy pool toys.
Yachting may be an activity of wealthy celebs, but boating is a surprisingly affordable summer activity. Many resort areas offer affordable boat rentals by the hour or day.
Growing up in New York, the Bronx Zoo was a highlight of my childhood. What New Yorker doesn’t have a childhood picture of herself popping up in prairie dog town?
This past fall, I was humming, “It’s All Happening at the Zoo”, as I watched my own little pups frolic at the Bronx Zoo. We’re looking forward to their spring Animal Tales Extravaganza line-up.
