Celebrating Ryan’s Birthday at Water Country #WCFamilyFun

071514_ 515

 I received tickets to Water Country to facilitate this review. The views and opinions expressed in this blog are purely my own. This was our second time visiting Water Country and based on our first experience 2 years ago, I had a pretty good feeling that James, Ryan and Ryan's two friends would have a great time celebrating Ryan's birthday at Water Country. Ryan's two friends had never been here and both were very excited. When we left the house for the 1 1/2 hour drive, it was cloudy and … {Read More}

#RitzBitsTeams Supports Youth Soccer Through Pear


This post is sponsored by Global Influence. Opinions expressed are my own. My boys have played soccer since they were both five years old. Our town soccer league has been wonderful for them. Through soccer, they are getting lots of exercise, they are learning the mechanics of the game, gaining skills and learning about teamwork and good sportsmanship.

Discovering Boating at Spectacle Lake #MC #Discoverboating #Sponsored


I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Discover Boating. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation. Last year, we paid for beach privileges over at Spectacle Lake in Leominster, MA. The boys loved being able to swim, fish and jump to their heart's content off of the dock into the nice refreshing water. What is interesting about this lake is that the water is very clear with a transparency of 19 feet. I was told there are a lot of … {Read More}

Wordless Wednesday Blueberries on Blood Hill #WW

I only wish we had something other than our hats to collect them in. What a fun hike! Who knew this little gem was right up the road?? Please note Ryan is posing with my trekking poles! Check out my post - Why you should … {Read More}
