Best Father's Day Weekend Ever!!!

First I'd like to wish a Happy Father's Day to all the Great Dads out there and the Moms that are both mom & dad!! Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend with their children!

We did enjoy our weekend with our kids & my wonderful husband knew that his Father's Day was going to be a bit crazy, but we didn't know how awesome it would turn out!

Since we knew that Sunday was going to be busy, we had some free time on Saturday so we went to Spring Lake Beach. This was our first time at this beach and it may not be our last. I LOVED it!!! The town is beautiful and the beach was so clean. The only downside is that they don't allow coolers on the beach, and we usually take one to have refreshments and snacks, but we can deal with this. The beach was wonderful!


Sunday was an early start!! My poor hubby was up before any of us & made us all breakfast, LOL, we should've been the ones to make breakfast for him....oh well. We gave him his gifts, then we ate breakfast. Afterwards it was time to get dressed for our friends' daughter's recital in NYC. It was a very cute show, we all enjoyed ourselves....those little girls are so cute :D Then it was back home to change for our son's Championship baseball game!

We drove an hour and a half, to a field that looked like the Field of Dreams, LOL!

We were surrounded by corn fields! Anyway, the game got going and it was scoreless for a few innings! Unfortunately, I have extremely bad memory so I can't give accurate details, but we scored 3 runs and then the other team scored 2.....this is where it became a real nail biting game! Finally, the bottom of the 7th inning (final inning of the game) and the final out was made.....YAY!!!! WOO-HOO....it was chaos......kids jumping all over each other and real reasons to celebrated!!! What a great feeling.....both my husband and I are so proud of my son and all of the kids on the team. All of those early morning practices and hard work paid off, they are champions!!! They beat out 14 teams!!! It was the best Father's Day gift that any father could have received (in my opinion)! I can't speak for all the other dads but I know that my husband was very happy and proud of our son's performance! Every parent and child from Triple A Arsenals left the field extremely happy.....that long drive was worth it!!!

Taking a Detour!!!!

So we are up & out of my dad's house by 7am.  It was hard and I tried to leave quickly, my poor baby girl even cried-I felt soooo bad for her.  Usually I'm the only one crying, but she really didn't want to leave :(  So,  we said goodbye-hope to be back soon (permanently) and we drove off!
About an hour out, we stopped for breakfast and had to practically make a run for it, LOL! There were like 20 buses full of kids!! By the time we got inside, the Dunkin Doughnuts line was like a mile long-ugh, there goes my coffee!  So we had no other choice but to eat burgers at Wendy's, everything else had super long lines that we didn't want to wait on!
We grabbed our burgers and left.  A little while later Laz asks me if I want to stop at Clearwater Aquarium.  At this point, I'm not 100% sure-I was sad about leaving & felt like just being home to calculate & come up with good, concrete reasons to move to Florida.  On the other hand, I really wasn't looking…

Weekend Trip to Niagara Falls, Canada~Part 2

Here is our 2nd day in Niagara Falls.  We started our morning with breakfast in the hotel restaurant.  After breakfast we headed over to Marineland.  This park was nothing spectacular, but it was a nice little trip.  We saw a dolphin show, saw several other animals, killer whales, fed Beluga whales and rode 1 or 2 rides.  Again, nothing spectacular but it was fun.  A lot of walking, and our favorite part was feeding the beluga whales - they were so cute!
The dolphin show was also fun!  Its been a long time since we've seen dolphins in action.














After all the walking, we were run down and hungry.  We headed back to the hotel to shower and prepare for our dinner at Massimmo's Italian restaurant.  The view was beautiful!  I enjoyed dinner, but hubby and baby girl didn't.  I like to try new things and unfortunately the other 2 don't - and there wasn't much on the menu that they liked.  Baby girl had Ceasar Salad, hubby had Minestrone soup and I had Linguine Carbonara.


Cooking Corner: Cookbook Challenge Day 1

Hi everyone!  I'm starting April with a little challenge for myself.  You are all welcome to join if you choose.  I have a rather large collection of recipes that I've never tried and since I started to declutter my life of things I don't need, this is one area that needs help. What do I need so many cookbooks and binders of recipes for? I don't know - it just takes up space and it's another thing for me to clean.  So, I decided that if I can't find good recipes that we love, there is no point in keeping the book or recipe.  I attempted this challenge a few years ago but never followed through.  This time, I intend to stick with it.
Here's my challenge:
Pick a book a month and try some recipes.
Decide what we like and what we don't.
If I have at least 15 recipes that we like, the book stays.  If not, I'll just copy the few recipes we liked and get rid of the book.
Not sure what I'll do with the book yet.  I'll figure it out at the end of th…
