(Nov. 17, 2013) Last year we made awesome cinnamon ornaments for our country style Christmas tree, they still smell and look awesome this year but I wanted Nico to make something new this year. Our friend at 3 Dinosaurs had provided us with our lacing card tree top last year, [...]
It’s me, PlayDrMom, bouncing in again to tell you about another great place we found to play.
How could you drive by this place and NOT want to go check it out?!? We knew we wanted to go when we heard about its opening and finally got to check it out last [...]
