Chicago Area Pumpkin Patch Guide 2014

October is all about the arrival of fall and Halloween. I’ve compiled a huge guide of Chicago Area Pumpkin Patches so you can find the one just right for your family. Admission prices do NOT include the cost of pumpkins. I do my best to be sure the information is current, accurate information, but it’s always…

Pizza and a Movie with Netflix Streaming

Fall is in full swing and we’re finally getting used to the new routine. We’ve got two kids on different school schedules and we’re all on different sleep schedules, so what that all adds up to is that the kids really don’t even see each other much in the mornings. When they get home from…

Family Sundays with the Chicago White Sox

It’s not hot and muggy anymore, and you can gorge on apple and pumpkin flavored everything, but summer’s not totally over yet. There’s still time to catch an afternoon of America’s favorite pastime with (one of) Chicago’s favorite team(s), the Chicago White Sox! There are still games through the month of September, and just ONE more…

Autumn Weekends at Santa’s Village AZoosment Park

  With cool weather it’s the perfect time for a trip to Santa’s Village! You might think of an amusement (or AZoosment, in this case) park as a summer activity, but Santa’s Village is open on the weekends until the end of October. That’s a lot of time for taking kids on rides you remember…

Encouraging Kindness with Netflix Streaming

My kids started school a couple weeks ago and the new school year always gets me thinking about what I want my kids to learn. Of course, things like math and literacy are important, but it’s more important to me that they learn to be understanding and helpful to others. In a word, I want…
