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!

Mommy not referee

When you become a mom you prepare yourself for the job of wearing multiples hats but referee is one that you probably don’t want to wear. 

Sure we have our days but when you’re bonded with sibling love they will naturally find themselves in a better stance …. yet always side by side.

Twindollicious Brand Casting features on VH1 (Mob Wives)

Our first casting call for the Twindollicious brand was filmed by VH1! Quite an experience I might say.  Casting children for a brand can be a lot of things; includig fun, nerve wrecking and rewarding, then to have a camera crew from the popular Reality Series Mob Wives arrive with cameras and microphones, well that’s just a bunch of things all wrapped up in one. It was a great casting! The crew from VH1 Mob Wives were Awesome! All of the models were excited to get their hands on the book and in front of  our fun camera set. The dream team that put this all together begins with the Agent used : Lorrie Tierney from TV Guide Networks show “Mother of all talent”.  All of her talented models attended with their wonderful parents, ready and as animated as ever.  And animation is what Twindollicious is all about! Cate Scaglione International award winning child and family photographer, of http://www.lifeasfineart.com/ and I have a chemistry and enough animation to make a turtle run; so we’ve been told 🙂  Cate’s photography Halo light or magic ring as we called it that day added more of a whimsical feel to the shots… oh, Let’s not forget the magical purple wall.  The shots were captivated by her to show happiness when reading “Any Two can Be Twindollcious”.  Drita Davanzo’s daughter Gizelle DAvanzo entered the room a bit shy, but was happily interested to read the book, and share stories about her best friend. After the 8 minutes of comfort in front of the camera, she began to glow through Cate’s lense.  I always love to add relatable conversation or laughter when around children.  It works everytime! Surrounding myself around childrens books, stories and these ever loving fun kiddies is my lifes work. Our first casting was a success and all characters/models are in full animation. As the Spring/Summer looks come together in preparation for book 2, our models and look book will be released.
