Brunch at the Del Ray Café

After church on Sunday, I was craving breakfast food and looking to try something new.   We often eat out after church with my dad and my brother and his family, but on this day, it was just me and the kids.   After doing a little searching on UrbanSpoon (love that app!), I...

Christmas Ornaments for Kids

Each year, I buy each of my kids a unique ornament — something commemorative from the year.  These ornaments go on the “kid tree” and will someday go with my kids when they grow up and leave the nest.  I enjoy the challenge each year of finding the perfect ornament for each child.  I like...

Glamping with Grandad at Bethpage Camp Resort
