Summer weekend travels

Slow down summer!  Though it has been 3 plus weeks since school ended, just the thought of packing away our summer styles and prepping for the cold scares the hee bee gee bees out of me. 

We’ve been taking it as slow as we can between summer camp and our weekend getaways we are soaking up all of the sun we can to fulfill our vitamin D needs. 

With 3 kids in tow we planned to visit some historical sites within driving distance. An 8-10 hour drive may sound like much but we’ve survived 16; now that’s serious. We chose Saratoga/Lake George as our first weekend getaway. We usually visit Martha’sVineyard  but decided to go with a group of our family members and learn about upstate NY. The kids couldn’t get enough of the horses at Bennington Farms, Martha’s Creme for ice cream, Congress park’s Carousel, of course the lake and did I mention the ice cream 🍦. 

As if that adventure wasnt enough we were brave enough to do it again….and many more times to come of course. But, traveling down south to VA to visit family was both nostalgic and educational once again. 

We stopped at chincoteague beach where the wild horses run and the famous story of misty originated.  The kiddies enjoyed one beautiful horse after another with an added touch of beach of course. We enjoyed our stay at a quaint Refuge Inn…. super kid friendly; just what we like! 



Chincoteague 


Summer Days

Summer days are meant to be spent at one of the best places on earth… the beach. 

We love going to the beach to 

-collect seashells 

– talk about mermaid landing rocks 

– build Sand castles 

– read books 

We hope your Independence Day festivities include some time by the sea

What are some of the things that you like to do on the beach? 

Where should we place our first medals 

It has officially been a year since V & K asked to join gymnastics and hard work has paid off. These two dolls worked hard to learn all about what gymnastics has to offer up until the last day of meets.  We are now at the point where a decision is needed to be made on whether they will join pre teams. We’d love to hear your thoughts? 

They are 6 going on 7 and have been told numerous times that they have potential and the talent is clear.  Though the girls do show differences in strength they truly enjoy tune with their friends and the cheering and support they receive and give to each other. 

At their first meet they earned beautiful medals! They are so proud of hemselves and each other.  As soon as we arrived home I thought it would be great to hang these beautiful things ; but where? We used Velcro Brand adhesives ( which we picked up at our local Michaels store). 

The small sized Velcro square fit perfectly on the band of the medal.  We simply found the perfect spot on the wall and hung them with pride… can’t wait for them to add more medals to their walls

Staycation favorites

Well, we survived a Presidents’ Day week with 80% staycationing (new word)!  This February has flown by so fast that we couldn’t clearly plan a family vacation, so we decided to stay local to work a bit and have fun while doing so. 

V & K enjoyed a movie premiere screening of Rock Dog; a must see movie about one of our favorite things MUSIC, and life of  an artist. If it’s exposure to freedom of art, creation and a reason to think outside of the box we’re in! 

If you haven’t been to the toy fair at NYC Javits Center yet you must check it out! There are so many ideas for learning, gifts and teaching lessons on encouraging entrepreneurship to children with one visit. It usually runs during the February season of NY Fashion.  The girls enjoyed some goodies and decided to coordinate a full video on them. So much fun!

 We saved our last great adventure of this staycation for our friends meet at Liberty Science center. We had the privilege of attending the new exhibit of Myth Busters. These girls love tech and science with a splash of fashion.  As you can see here our Mom trends friends /event in style with some buddies. http://www.lsc.org

New year, new age, new adventures

Hello 2017!!! Let’s do this! 

Wow have the last few weeks been something to talk about or what? With that; we’re moving forward to new beginnings and opening doors to new opportunities for V & K. 

Looking back at 2016 up to now the girls have began to show their differences in interests, style and friendships. I have not read the expert guide on raising twins but Personalities are changing along with responsibilities in the girls relationship. Thanks! Just when I thought I had it figured out. 

For those of you who may not know what this means; it’s like a twin shift. 

This happens when twins begin to do things that are out of character for themselves but more of the things that their twin would do.  It also happens with food, style and likes. 

If you’re a parent of multiples or are a multiple……ask yourself did you always find yourself/or your child’s behavior carefree, or super organized and then began to change? 

V & K’s current shift has been a confidence booster surprise! Suddenly someone (we won’t reveal which one…can you guess who?) is interested in singing, dancing, camera time and class participation. While the other remains confident but with a bit of cautiousness.  It isn’t cautious behavior to be alarmed of but perhaps less carefree. In a way as to let one twin shine while she takes a step aside for her sister to experience some fun. 

May they always have each others back! 

***coming soon: lots of videos and blog design updates
