Last night my family checked out Chase Field and an Arizona Diamondbacks game for the first time – not only was it our first time at Chase Field, it was my kids’ first baseball game! I want to share some bits and pieces from our experience bringing 4 kids to the ballpark, as well as some tips and tricks for making the experience amazing when your family visits as well!
A is my “girly-girl” and she just had her 6th birthday. She has been asking for a journal that she could lock for months. I actually got her that journal for Christmas, and she had lost both of the keys that came with the lock numerous times before breaking the lock last month. When I discovered Smit-Co and saw the options they offer for journaling I knew I had found a winner in this trendy emoji Top Secret Journal Set.
The Arizona Diamondbacks are the Major League Baseball in Arizona, located in downtown Phoenix. Chase Field features a signature swimming pool, retractable roof and kids play area called The Phoenix Children’s Hospital Sandlot. D-backs provide family-friendly entertainment all season long, including free Sunday game tickets for members of their D-backs Kids Club.

Weekday evenings are the busiest time of day for my family. We have to do school/babysitter pickup, dinner, homework, and our bedtime routine – times 4 – all in just over 2 hours. It can be difficult to make evenings enjoyable and not just a rush to get everything done. I am always looking for creative ways to make ordinary moments extraordinary, and this week Goldfish crackers helped make that happen!
There are many reasons why my kids and I set a “resolution” (we prefer to think of them as goals) of writing letters to their friends & family. Many of our friends live 3 thousand miles away in NY and with the time difference and our busy schedules, we do not call as much as we should – plus the kids LOVE getting mail! When I heard about the Post Pal Club, I knew that would be a super fun way to kick off implementation of our goal!
Whether you are looking for a last minute (or belated) holiday gift, searching for awesome things to use your gift cards on, or planning for upcoming birthday party gifts – this is a can’t pass product. Bringing your child’s favorite characters into their rooms without cluttering the toybox! I know my little ones like having a night light – and these are as cool as they come!
It’s hard to be away from family during the holidays. Grandma and Grandpa are back in snowy New York, and we’re 3,000 miles away in Arizona desert. Deciding what to do for Grandma and Grandpa is tough. Of course, we will call them and enjoy FaceTime Christmas morning, but we really wanted to mail a special gift too – something they would not expect and would be surprised to receive. Something meaningful, personalized and useful. As soon as I learned about Grandbox, I knew it was the answer.
