Kiss The Crowds Good Bye: Experience Kissimmee + Fall Florida Travel Deals

No Comments Uncategorized

Being a stay-at-home-Mom for 9 years now, I’ve learned my favorite time of year to visit the popular parks and attractions (in any city really) has to be September and February. Crowds are no fun with little ones in tow and long lines or crowded pools make for really long days. Let’s kiss those crowds good-bye for a little while now that school is in and fall is in the air! This is really the best time to score some amazing deals, especially in Florida!

Summer Snow Day is Here!

No Comments Holidays, Kids

Any summer day can be a snow day!

#SummerSnowDay
<!–more–>
Being that I grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, I long for the winter days, not only in the winter but also in the sweltering summer heat too. When my good friends, Pavel and Jessie, mentioned that they did this day each year, I thought it was BRILLIANT! What a fun day to occupy the other 100 days of summer and switch it up a bit to have some cool winter fun! We will celebrate this day with some ice skating, hot chocolate for breakfast, holiday music, cookie baking, crafts and maybe some snow too! Get in the mood and join us too!

Summer Snow Day…What is this awesome day you ask?
