Flying Sunday Family Fun

fun fly at the field
Vicky and Dusty Crophopper
This past Sunday we went to my husband’s RC plane flying club for what they call a “Family Fun Fly”.  This is when family and friends of club members get together at the “field” to fly RC planes and drones. Yes my hubby is one of those guys who flies drones, but not those white infamous drones ‘that anybody can fly” like he likes to say … he actually flies FPV (first person view) racing drones built by him and his friend.

Inside Out – Movie in Theaters Now + Character Nail Art

We can’t wait to meet the little voices inside our heads!

The weekend can’t come soon enough. My little one has been wanting to go watch this movie since it came out on Friday. So you know what we’ll be doing this Saturday.
All the reviews I have read have given Inside Out two thumbs up. Can you expect anything less? I mean who doesn’t love the “Toy Story” movies, or “Finding Nemo”?
I was literally in tears when we watched “UP”.   I have to say… I’m pretty excited about this Pixar movie.

Touch a Truck

Kids paint firetruck - Touch a truck

This morning my little one had the chance to get up really close to her favorite big trucks, police cars, fire engines and more!  What better time than the Saturday before Father’s Day. She was able to sit behind the wheel, honk the horn on a garbage truck, and explore the cool service vehicles she sees on the road every day.

Working Mommy Support System

Working Mommy Support System
We all need a little support and encouragement. Happy mommy, happy child. For those who are juggling work, kids, marriage and everything in between… tackling it alone can be a difficult uphill battle. There is wisdom, insight, and extra helping hands that can be gained from friends, family or colleagues who have been there and have learned what it takes to prevail.

Are we damaging or helping our children?

Are children damaged when moms work? Or are the kids better off if mommy spent some time at work? 

Making the decision to stay home with your kids or join the workforce can be a very difficult process. As
a working mom I faced moments of sadness and guilt, specially when
I returned to work and my daughter was only 7 weeks old. However, I
certainly see both side of the coin. I felt confident that I was ensuring financial stability and prepared for unforeseen circumstances.  I am proud and thankful to have an
excellent support system, a gratifying career and still able to enjoy
motherhood.

Little sous chef

My 4 your old is an amazing sous chef!
Child labor? No way! Just another way of spending quality time together and teaching my daughter the importance of preparing a good home cooked meal at an early age. As I opened the packs of grass fed strip steaks, you can imagine her face of horror…. “Mommy are we going to eat that dog food?” I couldn’t contain my laughter. She stared at me with a serious face probably wondering why I was almost in tears… tears of laughter. So I proceeded to explain that the steaks were cow’s meat yada yada yada. “But Mommy, who killed the cow?” “How are we going to get the milk now, I want milky?” And at that time I wish I would have been recording to savor her innocence for the rest of my life.
