Wooden Swing Set + Infused Water = Easy Outdoor Entertaining

Simple outdoor entertaining with families of young kids requires just a few ingredients... something to play on, something to sip on and comfortable places for adults to sit on while they watch their kids enjoy a beautiful summer day. Nothing fancy - just a few pretty things to build a happy family legacy. I visited Walmart headquarters in Betonville, Arkansas in May. Not far from the main office is Walmart's historic, craftsman style house - it is gorgeous! The Jackson House is kept as a venue for hosting manufactures or vendors, allowing them plenty of space to set up their newest line of … [Read more...]

Passport to Culture Travel Party for Kids: Hawaiian Culture

Culture Party for Kids: A Legacy of Multiculturalism These culture parties have been so much fun to do for and with the kids. Alina is learning so much! And for the factual information she may forget, the idea that the world is bigger than here and us - the family legacy of multiculturalism I've always wanted to build - is certainly being nurtured. At the beginning of summer, we put together a Hawaiian themed party that taught facts, embraced food cultures and incorporated cultural crafts for kids from the most tropical American state all of us want to visit... Hawaii! Passport to … [Read more...]

 

Holiday Traditions: Red, White and Blueberry Bread Pudding

Holiday Traditions: Red, White and Blueberry Bread Pudding

I wanted to make a staple from Daddy D's all American childhood to celebrate the upcoming holiday. 4th of July is filled with holiday traditions in our family, and adding this Red, White and Blueberry Bread Pudding to the celebration seemed like a great idea! This bread pudding recipe is filled with white chocolate chips and blueberries, then covered in a chunky strawberry sauce. It's festive and decedent. I thought I hit a home run. Especially since Walmart had asked us to celebrate this patriotic holiday with them, I thought for sure it was the perfect reflection of all my family's flavors … [Read more...]

Culture Party: Celebrating Chinese New Year with Kids

Celebrate Chinese New Year with a Culture Party We had a great time throwing a culture party to learn more about Ireland a few months back, and I had every intention in making them a regular occurrence, but life got the best of me. So with Chinese New Year in full swing here in Vegas, I decided to take the opportunity to teach the kids more about Chinese culture by showcasing the various elements that make up a typical Chinese New Year party. We had a blast! The Chinese New Year is the longest and most ancient celebration in the Chinese calendar, and is often referred to as the Lunar New … [Read more...]

 

Buffalo Chicken Dip Bites: Game Day Recipe

Buffalo Chicken Dip Bites: Game Day Recipe

Game Day Winner with Buffalo Chicken Dip Balls! Goodness, it has to be over 10 years since my best friend served Buffalo Chicken Dip at one of her babies' birthday party. I fell hopelessly in love with it then, and now will only make it on special occasion. (It's so fattening and falls in my mouth by the spoonful). We're invited to a couple parties for this year's big football game, so I decided to twist up the classic by making Buffalo Chicken Dip Bites (or balls, if you so choose). This post is sponsored by Walmart, the one stop shop for all our ingredients and hostess gifts for the big … [Read more...]
