We are always looking for things for our entire family to do that will entertain and engage all four of my kids whose ages range from 11-3 years old.  Not always an easy task, as one might imagine… We hit the jackpot however, when we heard that Brooks Street Bowl, the new bowling alley in […]

The Lemon Tree and Falls Day Spa Team Up for Mother’s Day Contest

I am in a really “pro-Mom” mood right now.  I am entirely fed up with our culture pitting Mom against Mom.  Moms who work vs. stay-at-home-Moms.  Moms who cook everything from scratch (feel free to insert organic or home grown here as well) vs. Moms who fly by the grocery on the way home from […]

‘Tis the season for picking strawberries. Sweet, delicious, ruby red morsels of goodness. We are so lucky to live in an area that has tons of tireless farmers who open their farms to us mere mortals in search of our next sweet fix…some places will even pick them for you and send you home with […]

Run…Like A Mother

Last Mothers Day, May 2011, was a memorable one at our house.  Memorable in the way that you’d kind of like to forget, but can’t because in hindsight, they are funny stories that get funnier as the year goes by… The kind of memorable that involves my daughter writing a Mother’s Day essay for school […]

Wake Forest is home to Camp Kanata, a 150 acre YMCA co-ed resident camp (they also have day camp and mini-camp options), that serves children from ages 6-15.  When it was created in the 1950s, I’m sure it was considered to be a “rural destination.” Though the area has grown tremendously, if you take the short drive on 98 West, hang […]
