May 20, 2012 Boyce Thompson Birds

On May 20, 2012 we went back up to Boyce Thompson in search of more birds and to get the kids on a nice hike.  We definitely weren't disappointed and the kids had a blast with the different sites, animals, and smells that Boyce Thompson provides.  Check out our bird sightings from this trip!  I apologize as it's a new camera and I'm still learning how to work it!

Boyce Thompson May 6, 2012

We love to go find birds, hike, and let the kids explore the world around them.  On May 6th we headed out and visited the Boyce Thompson Arboretum.  We got a ton of sightings!  I'm loving this new hobby of mine since it is the perfect family hobby, we get out, exercise, and the kids along with me learn something new each time!

Treating those Ear Infections and Swimmers Ear

Okay Moms, it's time we gear up for pool season and the potential ear infection or swimmers ear. I have 2 little one's under 3 so finding a remedy that is safe for them is amazingly important. I managed to find two treatments for ear infections and one can also be used to help prevent swimmers ear in little ones under 3. They aren't 100% cures, but will help in the long run. Remember, I'm not a doctor,just a mom so consult a doctor before using these as I don't know your children or their bodies. I'm just offering these to you as something to ask your doctor about since they seem to help my kids.

Child Up Review and Giveaway

I run a daycare and am always looking for products that I can use for all ages.  Or at least most of the ages.  I review products with the kids to see how they work and what the kids think of them.  Some of  them work out and I post about them, some don't and I don't waste your time.  I was sent some learning cards to test on the kids for ages 1-5.  Here is my Review of Child Up's Learning Card Games on numbers.

Peralta Trail Flowers

Lately, when I blog about our hikes I talk about birds. They are so fun to hunt and find to try to get a picture of!  Their constant flittering makes that picture ever so hard which increases the drive to snap one in me!  This post is different.  It is spring and Arizona is at its best.  When you look out in the desert you see brown and green, then you look harder and see the most brilliant colors and flowers imaginable!

Mommy Moments with Abby Review #EclosBeauty

Eclos_StarterKit.jpgThis post brought to you by ├ęclos Skin Care. All opinions are 100% mine.
We all feel the age on our faces as we deal with the stress's of being a mom.  The constant cleaning up, outdoor exposure, stress, and million of other things we subject our faces too can take a toll.  I'm always looking for products to help take back that age placed on my face so I don't look older than my age.  I was asked to sample a product called ├ęclos Skin Care which is made from Swiss apple plant stem cells.

Loopeez Review

I have a kid who is getting ready for Kindergarten and needs to learn to tie his shoes.  So, I accepted the request for a review on Loopeez.  Most of us don't think of the skills outside of the ABC's when we prepare our kids for Kindergarten but kids need to learn to tie shoes among other things in order to make the transition smooth and avoid potential ridicule.  So, here is my review of Loopeez.

OrGreenic Pan Review and Giveaway

I am all for going green but when I got the request to review a Green Fry Pan, well I had to see this!  I accepted the review and got the OrGREENic Ceramic Non-Stick Fry Pan.  I looks just like any other Fry Pan only it is green instead of black.  I wasn't convinced of the no stick and decided to really put this one through the ringer!  Out comes, Pan Fried Barbecue Salmon!!!!

Phone Fetcher Review

I don't know about you, but my diaper bag is huge having 2 little ones and my phone is always finding its way to the bottom!  I was asked to review a product to help solve this very issue.  I chose black because it matches everything even though they have 8 colors to pick from and a chain model available in 4 weeks.  I applied and then waited for this to come.
