Best Playgrounds: Kids Castle, Doylestown, Pennsylvania

I love talking to other families about their favorite playgrounds.  My cousin lives in Doylestown and she had been asking us to come visit an awesome playground in her town, aptly named, Kids Castle.  If  you have ever been to Kids Street in Bridgewater, it is similar.  It was about an hour drive from where we live in Central New Jersey, but it was a fun day trip and worth visiting on such a sunny day!

Certainly a castle for kids!

Everyone Matters: Sponsoring HEALium Hugs

March 26th has become a special day for me. This is the day I pay tribute to a fellow writer and friend in the blogging community. Her name was Melissa Matters, and she passed away in November of 2015. You might remember my post about her in December, when I participated in Operation Christmas Child in her honor. Melissa ran a popular blog called Wading Through Motherhood, where she talked about her adorable children and shared family advice. Her death was sudden and she is sorely missed by many. So I created a movement called Everyone Matters as a way to honor and remember her. I will blog about it a few times a year, but specifically on her birthday, March 26th. For Everyone Matters, I will choose a cause to focus on as a way to honor her memory. This year I chose HEALium Hugs. Read on to find out more about HEALium Hugs and what they do!

Chocolate Chip Pan Cookie Recipe : Spring Peeps Bunny Cookie

Peeps are so cute that I tend to enjoy them even after Easter.  I bought an adorable Peeps bunny cookie pan from Candyland Crafts in Somerville (if  you live in Jersey, you must go visit them!) but then I got sick right around Easter time and I never had the chance to use it.  Never one to let a good, adorable cookie pan go to waste, I made a Spring bunny cookie for myself The Jersey Momma's Boy after the holiday.

Minecraft Comics for Kids - Plus, Minecraft Books and Crafts, too!

Minecraft can be all-consuming for kids. I'm a gamer myself so I know that too much gaming is just no good. You've got to find a healthy balance! So I discovered some great Minecraft books for The Jersey Momma's Boy to read outside of his gaming, and then we even created some cool Minecraft Shrinky Dinks, too. Reading was such a big hit that we even reviewed some more Minecraft books and hosted a giveaway on my Facebook page.  So what haven't we covered yet?  How about Minecraft Comic Books?
