Give Aways & Freebies

what our kids are reading now

  • The adventures of Samuarai Jack has been great fun to read. The series is about, an evil shape-shifter named Aku from the distant past that has brought destruction upon the land. Jack is a heroic warrior in a quest to return to the past and undo the evil wrought by Aku. ~ d

  • Dillon has been loving “The Monster Show” for weeks. It is a cute “tell all” about monsters... did you know that monsters feel silly only wearing underpants? Little D (3) now reads it back to me and it is the cutest thing ever. ~d

  • This is a great little series of books about trucks, fire engines, digger and other machines. Dillon reads these over and over again. The have cute illustrations, bright colors and they are about machines — what little boy wouldn't like! ~d


  • Milkshakes and Margaritas is a daily website dedicated to all things kid and parent related, run by San Francisco-based moms, Tanya Schevitz & Danielle Gutherie.

I love this! There's 3 1/2 years between our kids and our eldest, Jessica, loves our date nights. She gets a daddy-daughter date and a mommy-daughter date almost every week. Her favorite thing to do is go to our local hibachi grill for dinner and watch them prepare the food right in front of us, then the library for a sack full of bedtime stories - visiting the beach to walk the pier and watch the waves and the candy store for her favorite- a laffy taffy rope.

These are always our favorite nights of the week. the baby is now 14 months and we're starting to slowly introduce this to him as well. He loves the one on one time, too - he's never had just the parents and him seeing as he's #2, so we're giddy with anticipation to get to know him in this manor as well.


I send my oldest to my brother's for a week every summer. He has a great time with his same age cousin and my youngest gets to be in charge of all kid decisions.
