Are you stuck in a PB&j rut with your toddlers lunch? I am always on the hunt for EASY and healthy snacks and meals for my little ones. Through my search I have discovered hands downs the best resource for just that. It’s not only filled with first food ideas for babies but a great selection of foods for toddlers and even family recipes. What’s great is that it is all under one source so there is no need to hop from blog to blog to find ideas and most recipes have been rated my others on a scale of 1-100 so there is no need to waste your time guessing if it’s going to be good. I can’t wait to try the Pea Wee Kiwi popsicles pictured above.

Spring Dreaming

(image source clockwise 1, 2, 3,)

I am daydreaming of putting my winter coat away, longer evenings and family BBQ’s. The itch to find a new spring and summer wardrobe for my family and I has set in.

There aren’t a lot of items that I feel I would purchase a matching set for myself and my little ones (especially since they are both boys) but a Saltwater Sandal would hands down be one of them. Classic, comfortable and cute, these sandals work great with a summer dress for me as well as a pair of shorts for my boys. What’s great is they come in a variety on colors  that work well for anyone’s wardrobe. They have become a summer tradition in our home. Now I just have to decide what color to get each of us.
