Chicagoans put up with their fair share of less than the desirable weather in the winter months, but I think we can all agree, there is no better place to be than in Chicago on a warm day.
This weekend is a definite pre-cursor for whats to come in the next months!
Warmer weather is on the horizon but we are soaking up the last days of winter here in the Midwest. This past weekend we had the amazing opportunity to spend a day at Wilmot Mountain.
Did you know there is a real life castle.. yes castle with knights, a queen and court just outside of Chicago? (and many other cities across the US) Medieval Times has been a family affair for Chicagoland families for just over 26 years.
Its that time of year, love is in the air and the overwhelming pursuit of the "perfect" flowers, gift or date night follows us around wherever we go. From the supermarket chocolates to conversation hearts at every turn, its Valentine's on your mind from here to the 14th.
If you're a busy mama like me, and an avid reader/follower of our blog then you're officially one step ahead of "the game". You already have the know it all about our love (and hopefully yours too) of Wise Apple (formerly Eat Pakd) a to the door pre-packed food delivery service for your kiddos (or yourself).
If you're anything like me, mealtime with a toddler can be the absolute pits. Requests for mealtime in our house range from cheeseburger.. to well cheeseburger, so sneaking in those much needed fruits and veggies is a task that takes more than the average superhero cape.
Insert Squash fries.
We all have it... the one movie or show our kid can't live without. Our home has had our fair share of the "Hot Dog Dance", the voice of little British Piggies haunting me at night and most recently a little voice singing "I like to move it move it".
