Our children, our babies and our families have the privileges that they do thanks to the soldiers and heroes who sacrificed their lives for us in battle. Memorial Day is coming up this Monday and gives us reason to remember and honor the veterans who fought in the Civil and World Wars. At 3 p.m. local time, take a minute to pause, reflect and remember those who died in service to our nation. Pass the tradition on to your little ones and celebrate the freedom of our nation with food and festivities. Why not help put the “memorial” into Memorial Day with a family event that is to be remembered each and every year?
Are you with me?
Every celebration requires a whole lot of food, which is why we’ve gathered some of the most delicious burger, salad and sweet treat recipes for the upcoming holiday.
My family and I visited Walt Disney World last month for the third time. We’ve been visiting every year for the past three years, so its been interesting to watch the kids react to and experience the park differently.
After talking to countless travelers and moms who have taken the trip with their own kids, the general consensus is that you should wait until your child is old enough to remember the parks, recommending that 7-9 is the perfect age range to do so. Unfortunately when you have more than one child that isn’t quite feasible and as a traveling family, I don’t believe in waiting for anything. Yes, your baby won’t remember the parks in their own memory, but you will be the one capturing those moments and making memories for yourself, your husband and your own child. I have so many beautiful photos of my son at the park last year when he was just 16 months old and again this year at 20 months old. We have video clips, Instagram photos and have been using the new Story app non-stop to create and reproduce those memories.
The great thing about Walt Disney World Resort is that they have loads of rides that are suitable for all age ranges – yes even tots! Of course there are many rides in addition to the ones I’ve compiled here, but these 5 are our absolute favorite!
Family quotes. They encourage us, inspire and shine a light on areas of our lives that we may be too busy to see on a regular basis.
The days zoom by so fast you may feel as though you are front and center on your very own racetrack. It’s easy to forget about the good things, the important things. I’m the first to admit that there are many times that I get so caught up with work, errands and chores that I don’t have time to live in the moment with my own family. I look at the day after it’s ended, when those little ones are asleep in their bed.

Did you know that Mickey Mouse’s teddy bear Duffy has a story all his own? While visiting Walt Disney World last month with our family, we had the chance to meet Duffy in person and learn how he became Mickey’s B.F.F.
I’m going to be completely honest here… I had no idea who Duffy was until just recently. I’ve heard his name a few times, but assumed he was a character from elsewhere. Let’s just say that our recent trip was very educational because now I am fully informed as to who this little bear is and the history behind him.
Before you click through for the story of Duffy, pray tell – is this the first time you’ve ever heard about Duffy Bear or am I the only one who was in the dark?
Vintage fashions, books, toys and gifts appeal to me on a larger scale than regular versions of the same products. There is something about the past that evokes feelings of a time gone by when life was simplistic and everyday design was the epitome of classic elegance.
The Hallmark Company has been working magic and touching the hearts of so many with their words for over 90 years so it really is quite fitting that they should partner with Disney Baby on this adorable collection.
If you or anyone you know has a baby shower coming up, this 7-piece collection should definitely be on their radar! Photo albums, picture frames and vintage plush characters have been designed with a subtle colorway and a hint of nostalgia.
