A Kid’s DIY Jet Creation

No Cost Kid's DIY Magnet Creation

Quickly wanted to share this crazy cool DIY jet creation with you. My son was helping me with a couple wooden signs I made recently.  He was screwing in the screws and stripping them making metal shavings.  So he got one of our magnets to clean up the metal shavings (smart kid, hey!) Well, I was painting, so he was a bit bored so he made this amazingly creative jet out of the screws we were using and the magnet. I'm just so impressed that it completely came from his imagination and nothing else.  Not even sure where he got the inspiration from as there isn't any jet models or pictures in our garage.  It is even more impressive that it came from a 7 year old's mind, just his mind. In … [Read more...]

Saint Bernards

St Bernards are amazing, this one is no exception. Meet Beethoven!!

Our family just grew by one HUGE 150 pound Saint Bernard! Meet Beethoven. He is so sweet and just a gentleman/dog.  So gentle that our oldest boy who is 9 years old can walk him (with me beside him of course).  He minds, he listens, and he is just so sweet with people and other dogs he meets during our walks. Beethoven the Saint Bernard has a little story ... He and his buddy have been known to take 'tours' of the neighbourhood ... aka: bust out of their owner's yard.  There were multiple posts online regarding their where-abouts and who were their owners, etc.  They ended up at the Humane Society where their owners eventually surrendered both Saint Bernards.  The previous owners just … [Read more...]

Pond Hockey

Pond hockey is a great way to get kids exercise and make great memories at the same time. This is a great resource for directions on how to make a pond hockey net.

If you listen to the NHL players, their fondest memories of growing up playing hockey is playing pond hockey. We have 2 boys who play hockey and LOVE playing on the pond.  The wonderful thing about pond hockey is that there are no rules, no refs, no coaches ... just putting on the skates, grabbing a stick, and throwing a helmet on.  Chasing the puck end to end, side to side, having a few breaks to sip on some hot cocoa, and going back at it. My husband made some pond hockey goal nets and the boys painted them with the colors of their choice. These boys played pond hockey in the most authentic setting ... it was New Years Day, the snow was falling, and they played for over 3 hours … [Read more...]

Colorado Rockies Pitcher takes time to meet young fans

Colorado Rockies Pitcher takes time to meet young fans with same name

For years I have wanted to have my boys who are 'the Rex brothers' meet Colorado Rockies pitcher, 'Rex Brothers'. I'll never forget sitting at Wahoo's waiting for our food, flipping through a magazine, I saw this ad about "What's up with Rex Brothers".  My first thought was 'they know we're here!!!!!' (in Denver) ... I quickly realized that one of the pitchers for the Rockies was this guy!  Ever since then, I made it a personal goal to have my little guys, 'the Rex brothers' meet THE 'Rex Brothers'. It finally happened and it was such a great experience, not only for the boys, but for all of us! We were able to meet this cute young pitcher prior to the game ... which also just so happened … [Read more...]
