Madison Heights’ First #LittleFreeLibrary

I love books. I was that kid in school that got in trouble because I was too busy reading instead of doing my school work. Whenever I give a gift, I always include a book – especially when my boys go to a birthday party. Books are the one simple...

Troy Gymnastics’ Ninja Warrior Training

My boys are huge fans of American Ninja Warrior. I don’t know if it’s the jumping or the climbing or the insanity of it, but whatever it is, they love watching it. My oldest has been doing various forms of martial arts off and on for the past few years....

Recipe: Bacon Pancakes

My kids (and my husband) love the Cartoon Network show, Adventure Time, and when they came across Jake’s fabulous Making Bacon Pancakes song they insisted we had to make our own bacon pancakes. Considering they also love bacon, I couldn’t resist and they were a hit. Strangely, they weren’t as...

Recipe: Ham and Cheese Brunch

Brunch play dates are one of my favorites to attend. The kids are guaranteed to love it (someone always brings donuts) and it’s still early enough that crankiness hasn’t set in yet. Yet it can also be hard when trying to figure out what to bring. Donuts are always easy,...

Historic Baseball at Greenfield Village

If you’re tired of watching the same old baseball game, may I suggest watching a game that’s a bit older? Check out Historic Base Ball: Base Ball 1867 Style at Greenfield Village. Every weekend between now and August 20th, Greenfield Village has their own baseball games and it’s unlike any...

Hitsville USA and the Motown Museum

Even if you didn’t grow up in the 60s and 70s, everyone has heard of Motown and the musical success they had. Hell, Motown jump-started Michael Jackson’s career and I know people have heard of him. I’m an 80s child, so I’ve heard of The Temptations, Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder,...

The Troy Historical Village

Today I would like to introduce everyone to the Troy Historical Village, located in Troy, Michigan at the corner of Wattles Road and Livernois Road. I don’t know how many times I’ve driven by that corner and I’ve never noticed this gem of a museum. This village contains 10 buildings...

10 Historic Sites You May Not Know About in Metro Detroit

Now that my oldest is out of that “any park, any time, all the time” stage, I’ve been finding that I need to put a little more effort into my summer plans. He’s no longer happy with let’s go discover a new park; instead he wants to know what we’re...

A Quick and Easy Craft: Puffy Paint!

I’m always looking for new crafts/activities that keep my boys busy and away from the video games, so when my youngest and I were introduced to the DIY puffy paint, we so had to make our own. This is really easy, I had all the ingredients on hand, and the...

Comic Books – Perfect For Beginner Readers

If you think it is odd that I would suggest comic books as the perfect books for beginner readers, don’t. In my experience, they can get a child to read more and can actually get them excited to read. There are some really great ones out there that are fabulous...
