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.
Remember when Times Square in New York was sleazy, crime-ridden and full of prostitutes and porn shops? Times Square is now a model of urban revitalization, and Atlantic City is undergoing a similar transformation with new resorts like Revel and a brand-new Boardwalk light and sound show.
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.
I worry about sun damage. I rub plenty of physical sunblock on my older two, dress them in UV-protectorant rash guards, and put on hats (which they inevitably remove) but I also don’t like them to be in direct sunlight for the entire outing–especially my newborn who is not supposed to use any sunscreen.
A great solution is a UV-protectorant tent like the Sun Smarties Pop-up Cabana and Beach Tent…
I really love my Kindle but it’s not waterproof so I’ve been wary of taking it to the beach, pool, or bathtub – some of my favorite places to relax and read. Recently M-Edge sent me their Kindle Leisure Jacket: a padded case that completely encloses the Kindle while still allowing you to read and type through its clear vinyl screen. With this splashproof protection I’m much more comfortable taking out my Kindle around water!
ThinkFirst is a national injury prevention program. Specifically, it was created to help children avoid suffering disabling injuries. ThinkFirst has offered some crucial safety tips to remember throughout this summer.
You probably already know that organic meat is free of antibiotics or synthetic growth hormones and is more nutritious for your family, especially for children and pregnant moms, but you may have had trouble locating quality organic meat at your local grocer or butcher.
While a trip to an organic farm is a great learning experience, it may not be a practical way to do your weekly or even special occasion grocery shopping. At Greensbury Market, you have quick, convenient access to premium-quality organic meats.
