Summer Camps Help Kids Affected By Cancer

“I have had some unforgettable experiences at camp… during those weekends the people did not just become friends, they became part of my family. I would personally like to thank everyone who helps run this amazing camp. It changes lives!” – Kim (a former camper and future counselor)

Summer is just around the corner and while both kids and parents anxiously await a much-needed vacation, there are a few others who need something more… a break from the heart-wrenching challenges they face every day as a result of a family member who is battling,

Summer on the water: Discover Boating

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 month I wrote about my ambassadorship with Discover Boating and all the fun ways our family loves to spend time on the water. Have you had a chance to explore the water this summer?

A couple of weeks ago I had an afternoon sail on a yacht with some of my girlfriends. We

Celebrate National Sunglasses Day

~Written in partnership with The Vision Council. Any opinions are my own.

Did you know June 27th is National Sunglasses Day?! I know I love MY sunglasses—they’re stylish, I use my sunglasses like a headband on the top of my head, they make it easier to see outside, and they protect my eyes! But what about my kids? Do your kids wear sunglasses? How often? Are you aware of the importance of protecting your children’s eyes?

YES, eyes can be sunburned. YES, you can get cancer of the eye (or eyelid).

Discover Boating this Summer!

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.

I am really excited to announce that I am an ambassador for Discover Boating this summer! I love being on the water and have since I was a little girl. My husband grew up with a lakehouse in WI so he’s a fish out of water, too! Now that we have kids of our own, we’re thrilled to share the fun with them and have them discover boating…

Homemade Popsicles: fruity & frozen yogurt

We have these awesome new silicone molds from HABA and I couldn’t wait to try them out with the kids! They’re bright with fun shapes and they make the perfect project on a nice spring day 🙂 Cupcakes, cakes, fancy ice cubes, and popsicles! There are so many creative ways to use all of these; where to start?! In celebration of the warmer weather (okayyyy, of course I say that and it SNOWED here today in mid-May), but anyway, we made fruity & frozen

Happy Summer! A Dickey family photo overload!

Hope everyone had a fun and relaxing 4th of July! We usually spend it at the lakehouse, but this year we got the itch for home improvement… and we stayed home all weekend to clean, organize, and paint! Ah, the things that excite you when you get “old,” haha.

We spent the 4th of July at a friend’s pool for a cookout. Ryan and Rebecca made their own festive shirts and were in bed long before the fireworks 😉 The picture above is the best I could get of the two of them

Staying cool this summer with NewAir

I hate winter. I hate the cold and being stuck inside… and all season I just DREAM of warm weather. It’s funny how that works because now that summer is here, I’m wishing it would cool down, haha. We’re still stuck inside some days because it’s just so hot and humid out! We live in a two-story and we do have central air, but our second story doesn’t seem to cool down enough. Just walking up the stairs you can immediately feel a temperature difference. We sleep with our ceiling fans on and no
