A Day with the Family during the Spring Sailboat Show

A couple weekends ago, family and I ventured into Historic Annapolis to check out the sailboats and meander around the Annapolis Spring Sailboat Show.  If you’re familiar with Annapolis, you’re likely familiar with “Boat Show” weekend, but you may not know that the boat shows come to Annapolis twice annually: Once in the spring and once […]

An Alternative Valentine’s Day: Healthy Kid-Friendly Activities

Happy February!  Happy Valentine’s Month!  Happy Sugar High!  When my eldest started kindergarten, she was exposed to the wide world of sweets and sugar, much to my chagrin.  On any given day, they use Skittles as “spacers” between words and choose partners for projects by drawing matching Dum-Dum pops.  On Valentine’s Day, parents were asked […]

Ice Skating in Annapolis with the Kids

Winter is here! Though I love and appreciate all four seasons, I find it difficult to get the wiggles out of my bigger littles (ages four and six; the littlest little is a wee infant!) when we are primarily inside. This winter, I vowed to find an indoor sport. We tried the SkyZone in Columbia […]

A Day with the Kids in Annapolis, with No Particular Agenda in Mind

It’s been a while since I enjoyed an agenda-free, lazy day. As the mother of three young children, one being just two months old, “lazy” is not readily in my repertoire. But with the holiday season now upon us, I feel the need to refocus and spend quality time with my little family. So on […]

Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts—Fun for the Whole Family

October is here! Not far behind the turn of the fall season, we delve into birthdays and holidays at my house. In an effort to spend some one-on-one time with my new kindergartener, scope out potential holiday activities ahead of time, and extend our festive season, I thought we’d start by picking up tickets to […]

Back-to-School Shopping in Annapolis

My daughter is starting kindergarten this year and my eldest son is starting preschool, so this is our first real year doing back-to-school shopping! As a child, back-to-school shopping was one of my absolute favorite activities. There is a line in the movie “You’ve Got Mail” about loving the smell of “bouquets of sharpened pencils” […]

Crabbing on the Creek: A Favorite Local Summer Pastime

Every summer, I reach into my bucket list for a couple of “must-do” activities with my kids. This summer, one of those activities was to go crabbing. I grew up spending lots of time at my grandparent’s property on Parkers Creek in South County (that’s what locals call Southern Anne Arundel County). A favorite summertime […]

A Kid-Free Weekend in Annapolis

A little while ago, a friend of mine asked me for travel recommendations for her and her husband on their anniversary weekend. They wanted to stay and play in the Annapolis area, and they would be traveling without their two young children. Without children?! As parents, the opportunity to travel together sans children is as […]

Girls Day Out

My five-year-old daughter Maggie is in preschool five mornings a week. This leaves me missing my time with her. (As a stay-at-home mom, I never thought I’d lament the day that one of my children was more independent, but I do!) So last Saturday I decided to somewhat remedy the situation by taking her out, […]
