Planes Fire and Rescue Review and Printables!

Planes Fire and Rescue Review and Printables! The family and I saw Planes Fire and Rescue in 3D a few nights ago. We are big fans of the first Planes, especially my little guy so you can imagine his excitement when I told him we were seeing Fire and Rescue! The movie starts with Dusty, fresh off his big win at Wings Across the World, taking on race after race. He is a phenomenon in the racing world, remember he [more]

Workouts For Busy Moms

Workouts For Busy Moms Most weeks I can make the gym regularly. Life likes to happen though so sometimes the gym is out of the question, unless I go at 6am and sorry I like my sleep too much for that. Because of those kinds of days I started to look for ways to get in some sort of exercise no matter what.  These workouts won't give you your ultimate mile time, best distance, or [more]

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Luau Birthday Party

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Luau Birthday PartyWhen my darling son turned 2 we had a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse birthday party. It was cute but since then I have started to do more personalized birthdays and not just buying whatever I could find in the stores. After our trip to Walt Disney World, he wanted another Mickey Mouse Birthday. Sounds easy enough right? Sure if I wanted to just repeat his 2nd Birthday but I wanted to [more]

The Magic of Disney Social Media Moms On The Road

The Magic of Disney Social Media Moms On The Road Not only was I inspired by the Disney Social Media Moms On The Road event but I was blown away by how special and magical the event was. Hopefully you can feel some of the DisneySide energy!  It was cool to see some of the #DisneySide crafts that some of the party hosts made. I really love and want to try making the Mickey Mouse utensil holder. After checking in and receiving my [more]

Gifford’s Famous Ice Cream is Now in the DC Metro Area

Gifford’s Famous Ice Cream is Now in the DC Metro Area

Gifford's Ice Cream

One of the fun things about doing what I do is getting to attend awesome events my whole family gets to enjoy. This one happened to be on little man’s birthday- food, ice cream, and golf? It was like another present for him! 

Gifford's Ice Cream

 

You mean we have to choose?

Gifford's Ice Cream

Toppings time and that would be my little one’s hand creeping up in the picture.

Gifford’s Ice Cream is a 5th generation, family owned ice cream business based out of Maine. They have recently expanded into the DC area and wanted to throw a party to celebrate. After tasting their delicious ice cream it is definitely party worthy. Yum!

I finally decided on Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip, not my usual go to but when in Rome. So good! Good to the last drop and no I did not share.

Speaking of not sharing these 2 didn’t share with me either! Not that I blame them…

Since my entire family would not share, I decided that meant I needed to get another one. This time I chose old fashioned vanilla with sprinkles- classic.  

Gifford's Ice Cream

I haven’t had ice cream this tasty in a long time. We all loved it and I know you will too! Their recipe and how they make the ice cream makes all the difference. Read all about the Gifford way here. You can find Gifford’s in Whole Foods Market, Balducci’s, Wawa, and other fine grocers.  

Who doesn’t love an ice cream party?

Throughout the summer Gifford’s will be traveling around the Washington DC area in their ice cream truck dishing out their deliciousness for free! Be sure to check them out at the fourth annual “DC Scoop” ice cream competition July 19th at Union Market! 

Thank you Gifford’s Ice Cream for making baby boy’s birthday extra special!

What is your favorite ice cream topping?

Family Fun with the PGA at 1757 Golf Club

Family Fun with the PGA at 1757 Golf Club

About a week ago we got up and instead of our usual Sunday routine, headed out to a local golf course. Honestly, I didn’t know what to expect, the closest to golf I have gotten was a pretty competitive game of Putt-Putt. Our destination was the 1757 Golf Club, a beautiful golf course, training facility, and evenContinue Reading
