Father's Day will be here before you know it. Dad's day, is very different from Mother's Day in that mom wants to be pampered, showered with love, gifts and attention. Dad not so much. Dad wants to be left alone to do dad things. Cooking out, dad is always down to throw down with a good barbecue, sit in front of the television to watch the game, there will be some sort of game on, just hand him th
Wow I remember like it was yesterday, that I would play outside 7 days a week, all day long with the neighborhood kids and we would all get thirsty. We would hit up one of our houses for a 'drink' which usually consisted of nothing but....water. In which case one of our mom's would say just turn on the water hose and you all can drink from there or better yet, here's one glass of water, you all sh
I went to the lake last weekend like so many people have been doing the last couple of months to get those last minute vacations in before summer is unofficially over. Had a blast with family all day out on the lake, doing the typical lake activities, then hungry and worn out by the end of the day.
Well I did it again..I do it every summer, I even do it in the fall with mums and other fall flowers. I killed my plants. I swear just when I think I'm doing so good and not over or under watering, they go and die on me.
When you are thirsty, water is water right? Growing up, for me, good water came out of the water hose according to my parents. But times have changed and good bottled water is hard to come by according to some. I'm truly not picky, you will always find me with a Yeti full of water because it is usually all I drink.
If you are looking to get away, out of the 4-3-2 like we were, here's a photo of what you can expect if you plan to hit up any rivers in Texas. We decided we wanted to float the river like we've done so many summers before and let me tell you, it is not for the faint of heart. By the way, this picture in no way even comes close to capturing how packed it truly was.
I read this story about my hometown and was not the least bit surprised. Apparently one of the water wells that supplies water to the city tested positive for E. coli. Ewwwww. But bacteria in the water is the reason that my family has not been drinking faucet water for years.
Parents if you're like me, since you have been home with your kids 24/7, no school, working from home, you're probably starting to notice things you never did before. For instance, I realized that neither of my kids drink enough water. Juice boxes, punch, anything BUT H2O. I decided I needed to do something about it.
In case you missed it on Leo and Rebecca in the Morning this morning we talked about the ways our parents entertained us during the summer. We didn't have half of the things our kids do these days and definitely not as fancy or expensive! This little gem popped in my head and thanks to an awesome listener who helped me remember what it was called!
