And, OMG, I had no idea how many suggestions I'd receive. Its like everyone and her mother and grandmother has a travel agency, a travel guide, a travel book and a travel tip to share. And I … [Read more...]

I've slowed down on reviewing movies and music lately, but when we view a movie that gets a "Mom! I WUV this one!" I know its worth a second glance. The Look Out World DVDs each focus on a different major city. (We have the first, NYC, which is great for us because Middle visited there this winter and is a bit obsessed).  We join the story as … [Read more...]

I know, I know. You've been hearing nothing but complaints about the cold. 'Cause its been cold around here. Really, really cold. And now that we're moving into spring (finally!) I'm preparing for the kids to want to go out and run and play. But while the sun is shining, it still isn't exactly warm around here. Ibex sent me a sample of their … [Read more...]

Lucky for us, we were able to get them out to the theater to see Alvin & the Chipmunks: the … [Read more...]

Another fun feature of the Palm Pre Plus is that you can play songs and watch videos. You can choose to download MP3's from Amazon's store (the prices are comparable to Apple iTunes Store at 0.99 cents a song). I was able to transfer MP3's and videos I downloaded (legally, of course) onto the Palm Pre Plus, by hooking up the USB cable to my … [Read more...]
