It’s summer! And if you live in Arizona like Nora and myself, that means you are HOT! We’ve both decided to get out of the heat for a bit and head west to where your clothes don’t stick to your body with a simple five minute car ride! So, to California we go! Nora will be spending time in the LA area and taking her 14 month old to Disneyland and I will be going to San Diego and visiting Sea World! We both couldn’t be more excited for some quality time with our families, new experiences with our kiddos and, of course, to get out of the heat! Full Mom-reports on our trips when we get back, but until then, have fun and stay cool

Well, it’s been a great, long weekend but we’re back in the swing of things over here at Ties & Tutus. Are you? Today’s challenge is a simple one. I know we are all in vacation or relaxation mode, so don’t worry, we won’t ask too much of you just yet. This week’s challenge is to leave a note or special treat for your mail carrier. I have to admit, our mail lady came to the door to have me sign for a package last week and I felt horrible when she left because it was 110 degrees outside and she’s pounding the pavement with a sack of mail. I imagine it’s a thankless job, so I scribbled a little note and left it in our mailbox for her just to let her know I appreciate what she does. I have no idea what she thought when she read it, but sometimes it’s the little things that go a long way.
In the spirit of the Fourth of July, our challenge this week is All-American inspired! For many families today the Fourth of July has become a holiday all about good BBQ and Fireworks, don’t get me wrong, that stuff is delicious, but what about this year challenging yourself (and your family) to know some of the facts behind the real reason we celebrate the Fourth of July. For example, some trivia questions to ask yourself – who is considered to be the author of the Declaration of Independence? Or what famous American proposed the idea of becoming independent from Great Britain? There are so many other fun facts to learn as well as teach your kids, such as, why we celebrate with fireworks, the meaning behind the Star Spangled Banner and so many more! So, you are challenged to fully appreciate the meaning behind our Independence Day this year in hopes of having truly great and meaningful holiday! Need a place to start? We’ve got ‘em:
We hope you have a fun and safe holiday!
