Who doesn't look forward to the most wonderful time of the year?  The presents, the parties, the food!! Sooo much JOY!  With this time of year there is also a whole lot of giving going on.

Family Fun: Park Hopping

Family Fun: Park Hopping Idea

Need a fun, in-expensive activity to do with the family this Fall?? Then this is it! I was inspired to create this family fun adventure when we were at my neighborhood park a while back. A few other moms were there with their kids too. One of them gathered up her kids and said, "Come on kids, let's go to the NEXT park." Needless to say, her kids were super antsy to get on with it because our park is not very spectacular. No swings, No monkey bars, Not a whole...
