Travel Tuesday: Texas: Cadillac Ranch


I absolutely love Texas! Everything is big and well Texas style! If you haven't been there I suggest you get your bottom moving and go visit Texas! I have lived in Texas and even then, I have so many more things to see and do there!

One of the coolest places I have visited there is the Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo off of Route 66 (or as it now known I-40, between exits 60 and 62). They were buried by a group called Ant Farm, hired by the eccentric Stanley March 3 (He passed away in June 2014 at the age of 76). He hired the artist group to pay home-age to the "Golden Age of Automobiles."  It is considered a public art piece. The ranch is made up of 10 Cadillacs buried nose down in the ground. Apparently the cars are buried at the same angle as the Giza Pyramid. I don't know how true that is, but hey it sounds good right?
The morning of our trip- it was just a tad bit foggy!

In 1974, the pieces were buried at one location and then in 1997  were moved to the present location, this was done as the city of Amarillo was growing. The trash that was there on the day of moving was even collected and scattered around the new site. You can see them from the highway and are very easy to get to. The Cadillac from the west are from 1949 to 1963. When they were originally buried the intention wasn't for them to become an evolving art piece with help from the public it became just that. It started as vandalism and theft, with people stripping the cars of the parts, breaking the glass and carving their names into the vehicles. At one point the wheels were welded to the cars to make sure they were not stolen.

Eventually, it was encouraged to come and help add to the piece. In March 2002, the cars were painted back to their original colors and then again in June 2003 were painted in flat black in response to the death of one of the founding members of Ant Farm. The Cadillac are never the same as people are now encouraged to come and mark and "graffiti" them. 

There is some controversy surrounding the Cadillac Ranch as they cars are now considered antiques and people are upset that there were "destroyed." 

Enough history already: Visiting the ranch, make sure you bring a camera and a few cans of spray paint. Make sure you document your artistic expressions as chances are within a few hours they will no longer be visible. I suggest visiting in the early morning, so you wont have to deal with the crowds. It's no fun to try and paint and have people coming right before you and painting before your paint even dries. 

When we visited the ranch, we had begun our road trip and arrived at 4:30 am. Not really the best time to visit the ranch. We decided to sleep and rest right outside the gate. The fog was really thick when we awoke around 9:30am. I was a bit disappointed after a few minutes the fog started to lift and we were able to go and make our mark on the ranch. We spent the next hour and a half, decorated, climbing and exploring the ranch. 
the view as we walked from our truck- it is a bit of a walk but well worth it

amazing! Love all of the details

makes you want to drive a Cadillac right?

this is my favorite picture from the day: I love all of the paint cans

If you are in the area and you have time, I highly recommend you bringing a picnic lunch and just people watching. You will be amazed at what you see while you are there. During our visit, we saw one guy climb in what would be the back window and hang upside down to take pictures. Just wow! 

My favorite was the children kept asking if I was sure they were allowed to paint on the cars. Pumpkin kept looking at me saying "ok, Mama?" as she held the can of spray paint. When discussing the history with Peanut, he asked if he graffitied his bedroom walls enough would it turn into art? Hmm, nice try kid, I think not!

Peanut was so excited to write his name, he kept asking are you sure this is alright?

part of his creation

some people get really into it!


Visit the ranch, watch and participate in the ever evolving art piece. Make sure to buy your paint before you get close to the ranch, the gas stations sell it there but it costs a fortune!

Hollywild Animal Park, SC

Hollywild Animal Park, set in rural Upstate SC is a gem among parks and zoos - it's a combination of both! The natural pathways and open spaces with plenty of picnic areas make it a great place to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of life and explore: the laughter of your children, time together, and the great outdoors. But there's more - more than 500 animals native to countries around the globe make their home at Hollywild. In the walking area of the park, you are close to all kinds of animals from the curious camels and humorous bears (who can be seen playing on the park's webcam www.hollywild.org Eyes on Hollywild) to the majestic great cats (lions, tigers, leopards, and cougars), striking baboons and ambassador wolves. Petting areas are intentionally placed throughout the park. Children wanting to pet the "kitty" may need to be redirected if that "kitty" happens to be a 500 pound Siberian Tiger, but just a few feet away you find a petting area where donkeys, alpaca, goats, and even pigs can be found ready for some attention. Free roaming birds like the brilliant peacocks, guineas, and exotic chickens show their colors throughout the grounds adding another element of fun to your visit. A bit of learning is tucked into a Hollywild visit too, with the aid of signage and the Creature Feature programs in the park's amphitheater. Both showcase details about the featured animals and give you the inside scoop on their unique adaptations and behaviors. There just aren't many places where you learn a little then spread out a picnic blanket beside a waterfall in view of a rare white lion, one of the newest additions to the Hollywild family. His inspiring story and Hollywild's partnership in an international effort to conserve the rare white subspecies make it easy to see why this place is a treasure on so many levels.

Included in your admission is the Safari Bus Ride you won't want to miss. Converted old-style school buses take you and yours on a journey you'll not soon forget - on the ride you meet all kinds of herbivores: emu, donkeys, water buffalo, bison, watusi, and zebras who come to the bus for snack time. You just can't see the foot-long tongue of a watusi up-close from anywhere - but you can at Hollwyild! From the bus, catch a glimpse of "Tank" the park's rare white rhino and star of many television commercials. In fact, that's where the park's name originated - through the movie industry. Hollywild has a 40+ year history - starting from a modest private backyard collection of animals to the nearly 100 acre public access park it is today. It grew as a result of Hollywood movie makers calling founder David Meeks and asking to film his animals. The funds raised by those efforts built the park to be the great resource it is today. Walking through the park you can see the star signs indicating the movies that Hollywild animals have appeared in during the park's history.

http://www.usfamilyguide.com/blogpromos/609/photo_4185.jpg
The park converted to a non-profit organization more than 15 years ago so that it would be run by a board of directors who could see to it that the park lives on as a great resource for generations to come. Many animals have been born here or brought here as rescues and some as 'retirees' from circus acts. Each has a special story worth hearing. Though staff recommend at least 2 hours for a visit during Park Season, others recommend just planning to spend the whole day as you can ride the bus as many times as you like and just relax enjoying the nature abundant around you. Picnics are welcome or you can purchase light concessions on-site. The park's website www.hollywild.org has links to places to stay, eat, and play nearby making it easy to plan a weekend getaway to the Upstate area convenient to I-85 and I-26.

Free Child's Admission with purchase of an Adult Admission

Family Yearbooks and why you should create one

A few years back I shared how I organized my pictures on my computer and my Shutterfly account. My favorite hobby is photography, I have a ton of pictures. I love looking back through them and smiling at all of the memories they provoke, which leads me into today's post. Family yearbooks.

My house growing up had ton of photographs, honestly you wouldn't know that my parents used film as there are so many photographs. The problem is that they are all shoved in a bin and put into the closet. To enjoy them, you have to open a bin and look through the envelopes to try and make sense of them. To this day we still have bins that aren't sorted. My personal pictures growing up (you know the ones you have of silly faces and random objects) were in photo books and as great as those are, they became so cumbersome. I had 30 books at 4 inches thick. I needed space.!


Addict, yup that's me, I am addicted to taking photographs and looking at them (love!) A couple of years ago, I started creating family yearbooks, lets be honest, it's no fun sitting and looking at your computer to find pictures. The children and I can sit on the couch and look at the memories, this also gives me a place to store our memorabilia. 

I sort my photos on my computer in folders two months of pictures per folder and then on shutterfly, I use our family website to share with friends and family throughout the year. Again, I love having the capability to do this but there is just something about holding the books and looking at them. I use shutterfly to print my books, for a few reasons. One, all of my photos are there as they offer free storage. I can drag the pictures right from my family website. Shutterfly has amazing sales throughout the year and I usually wait until one of those and then save a ton of money. Finally, I can also use ebates and earn money back. Seems like a no brainier to me!

There is no right or wrong way to make a photo book, my philosophy is to take all of my favorite pictures from the year and put them in there. I add descriptions of what it is, who is in the picture and where it was. To keep things easy for me, I start with January and end with December.  This not only keeps everything in an easy flow, but this is how the photos are organized on my computer and Shutterfly. Work smarter not harder right?


2008 family yearbook (green), Peanut's ABC book and train road trip. 

I usually make one of two sizes for my books, for our yearbooks, I use 12 x 12. Its a bigger size but you can fit a ton of pictures on a page and they are a decent size. This way the pictures aren't so tiny you have to use a magnifying glass. For books for the children or as gifts, I use the 8 x 8 size. 

We love to travel and to keep our family yearbooks from becoming too cumbersome, I only highlight the trip in the yearbook and create a separate books to share all of those pictures. The book in the back with the green cover is our 2008 family yearbook, it has a tropical feel because we were living in Hawai'i. The theme of the book, I try to match to either where we are living or some big event that happened that year. 

When my children start learning their alphabet letters and sounds, I create ABC books for them. What better way to learn the alphabet than to relate it to their life (and its a bonus way for them to make a book with their favorite pictures). Here are page spreads from Pumpkin's and Peanut's books.

The best part of making the books is seeing the photos the children pick and the hard part is finding the letter to fit them under. For pumpkin's book: F is for family, g is for glasses, h is for hiking waterfalls, I is for ice cream and J is for Jamberry. 

I love to see how the books come together and the memories that are created looking at the book. When Bean saw our most recent book, he was so excited to see one of his teachers from his daycare, he kept pointing to her and crying "My Mariah." Another one of my newer memories, is hearing Bean say his name for the first time. Bean doesn't usually talk about himself or he will say me, at one point he was saying all of the names of the people in the picture and he said his. I was shocked! 

W is for work, here you are doing your work at preschool. matching the item to the item shape. Each page not only explains what is happening in the picture but a funny quote that they have said at one time or another. 

Ok back to the yearbooks, at the end of each book, I add blank pages. This allows me to add in any pictures or memorabilia that I have. I love the space to put in notes from people, ticket stubs, just little things that I like to keep but don't want floating around. 



Each book takes me about a week to work on. I know that sounds like a lot but I break it up into sessions so it isn't so time consuming. The first day, I pick the pictures, the theme of the book and the book style. The next day, I start figuring out the events of the pictures and what I want the flow of the book to look like. The next few days I just plug pictures in and figure out the layout that seems to work the best. Once, I have settled on the individual page layouts, I send the book to a couple of my dear friends and have them look at it. This gives me a perspective of someone who hasn't been on the adventures with us to see if the pages make sense and tell a story. Yes, each set of pages is a story and I want it to be told in a way that helps to capture the most emotion and feeling. I also have them check for errors in spelling and minor details. Using their fresh set of eyes help to catch any errors. I would hate to create this fabulous and (pricey) book to find mistakes! 

After a week, I look at the book again and if I get the same happiness feeling then I know the book is good and I plan to order it. I wait until there is a sale and have my books ready. As of right now I have 15 books that need to be ordered. I'll have them all one day and in the meantime we enjoy the ones we have. 



The books hold all of my precious memories and I love looking at them over and over again, each time I remember something different and more importantly, my kiddos have a way to look back at all of our adventures. After all, life is just one big adventure.

Perfectly Posh Review

samples are the best! (each sample is directly linked to the product page, just click on the name)

Umm I am in love and as much as it is a good thing, it is also a bad thing! I love Perfectly Posh. Let me start by saying, my friend Stefanie Shuey, (click here for her facebook page and click on her name for her business page) became an consultant and I wanted to try some samples before I placed an order. Well, a couple days later, I got the samples in the mail. I was beyond excited, first my mailbox smelled so fantastic. (It has been a week since I received my samples and my mailbox still smells amazing). Literally, I was sniffing my mailbox. My neighbors think I am crazy, I am for sure of it, you should have seen the looks they were giving me. :)

I thought to myself if the products work as good as they smell then I am in love already. Learning to love my body was and is an ongoing struggle for me, I was always very active when I was younger, soccer, swimming, dancing, cheer leading, etc. As many moms know, being active when we have a family to take care of is a lot more challenging. I'm not saying it cannot be done, it's just harder. When I come across a product that is not only made from natural ingredients but works the way I would like it to and helps me feel good about myself well then it is a no brainier! 

My samples, aren't they just too cute!


More samples and Stef's business card

the catalog was tabbed for easy reference to each item in the sample! She has thought of everything. 

Perfectly Posh is a product line that is designed to pamper and nothing else, the products are all natural, gentle on the skin and body, made in the USA, not animal tested, have essential oils, natural butters, no parabens, sulfates, lanolin or fillers, vegan options and all of their products are under $25! I was sold before I even tried a product. 

I started with the hand cream, Hottie Patottie.

There are just no words. This is happiness in a bottle. I cannot stand hand cream that is so greasy it just wipes right off your hand. This is far from that! Hottie Patottie hydrates as soon as you put it on and rub! I could feel my hands not only becoming softer but overall feeling fantastic. The cream has a vanilla fragrance, just enough to give you a wonderful smell but nothing over whelming. I found myself sniffing my hands throughout the day. The best part about this cream was I only had to use it once to feel a difference, I didn't have to apply it five and six times a day to keep my hands hydrated. The price cannot be beat either $9.00 for a 3oz tube. 

The product I used was the Skindelicious Castaway Coconut Body Butter


photo credit: perfectly posh
At first I was a little hesitant about the coconut smell. I love coconut but if the smell isn't right you end up smelling like a cheap bottle of sunscreen; without hesitant I admit I was wrong. The body butter is fabulous with a capital B! I used it right after a shower and my skin has never felt so good. So silky and smooth, I could feel my shirts and capris, gliding over my skin. The only downfall was the sample was so small, I instantly wanted more. For $22, you get 8oz. You could use this head to toe! 

Up Next in the sample pack, Chunk Big Bath Bar soap, Gender Bender
photo credit: perfectly posh.com



Don't let the name fool you this charcoal based soap bar is a new favorite in our house. Usually I do not like bar soap, it gets yucky (I know official term!) and grimy. This bar of soap did not. As you can see in the sample pack it is a smaller bar, this sample bar lasted through 31 showers. Peanut is now 9 years old, actually he is almost 10, (let's not get started on that!) and well puberty is right around the corner. I was very happy to try to bar soap to be able to write about it but I was more excited about having him try it. I love the clean smell of the soap and I like that it doesn't have an overly feminine scent. This is a bar of soap everyone in your family can use. Peanut loved it as he said it took all my smell away. (IT did!) I also love how the scent didn't mix with our deodorant and just smell funky (please tell me I am not the only person that has happened to?)  Pumpkin has extremely sensitive skin and she was able to use this soap, with no problems. I am patiently awaiting our new bar to arrive! For $9.00 you get 7 oz of this amazing soap! This also happens to be one of the best sellers. 

If you aren't hooked on these products just from the description of how many amazing natural products, then the names will get you! BFF (Best Face Forever) Exfoliating Face Wash,  I mean seriously, how can you not love the product names! 


photo credit: perfectly posh.com

The face wash have microbeads in it, they are like thousands of tiny fingers giving you a face massages. The wash has a grapefruit and peppermint scent, it helps wake you up when you are washing your face. Good morning! I loved how smooth my face felt when I was finished. For $20, you get 4oz. I was able to wash my face twice with the sample that I received, so I know this face wash goes far. 

This is by far my favorite product I tried. You are always hearing the wonders of coconut oil, I have a jar that I keep in my fridge. I use it for everything from cleaning to health care. Posh Life Coconut Oil is fabulous and my new best friend! 

photo credit: perfectlyposh.com

My Sample was just not big enough, I wanted to cry when we were out.It just wasn't big enough. I use coconut oil to help hydrate bug bites and my cuticles. I also use it for hair treatments.  This coconut oil has a wonderful sweet yet not overbearing smell. If you took berries and added a hint of lemon, you have something similar. I used the oil to hydrate my cuticles before pushing them back, it worked fabulously. My cuticle were soft for days. I also have this little patch of skin where I hold a pen that is always so dry, this oil hydrated it perfectly. I love the way my cuticles look! My other favorite use for coconut oil for the ends of my hair, it helps to prevent split ends. I totally used the lemonberry coconut oil and not only did it work wonderfully but I got a subtle hint of lemonberry every time I moved my head. It reminded me of summertime! For $15, you get 4 oz, if you only buy one product make it this one. You won't be sorry!


I'm almost getting sad that I am at the last product to share with you as I have not only enjoyed writing about Perfectly Posh but I just love sharing them.  Last up in the sample pack, Sugar Fix Classic Body Sugar Scrub.  


Do not try this scrub if you are hungry, alright I am just kidding but it really is amazing. The scrub is gentle enough not to hurt your skin but gives your the exfoliation you are looking for. Not only does it smell amazing, a sweet floral smell with a hint of almond. (My kids thought I was making cookies when I used it) but your skin feels pampered. For $22, you get 9oz. Another steal if you ask me.

Perfectly Posh is my new favorite line. I adore their products, I love the vintage vibe they have, even the catalog has that same vibe.  Check out this photo from their website:
Not only have they thought of how to pamper you but Perfectly Posh pampers the earth, This card is included in their shipping boxes to describe their packing peanuts.


Get in touch with Stefanie and let her pamper you or even better host a party! You will be hooked.

My First Years Review




Let's imagine you are looking for a wonderful gift for a new baby or a young child in your life. What do you look for first? Me, personally I want something that is of good quality and something that is useful. Or I should probably say going to be playful. Having three kiddos in my house, I know how easily the toys and well let's face it junk piles up.  

I refuse to be part of the problem, if you ever invite me to a party where I need to purchase a gift let it be known I am bringing something useful or fun (chances are it isn't making any noise either (just saying)). With that being said, I was asked to review any item by the My 1st Years company and I instantly fell in love with their products. Take a look around their website and you will as well. 

I was allowed to pick any item up to $30.00 for my review. I was so excited, it took me forever to decide what I wanted. They have everything: robes, clothes, toy bins, frames, books and more. 

While trying to decide I wanted something that I could use with the children and all of them not just one. I also wanted something that would be amazing! The item also had to be something that I could easily pass on to other children I know when my children out grew it. It was a tall order, but that's how I roll!

 I chose the Personalized Chef set (apron, chef hat, oven mitt, rolling pin and cookie cutter set) as my children are always asking to help in the kitchen. I couldn't ask for a better product for them and our lifestyle. I was also hoping that this set could be used in the kitchen with me and with their play kitchen. 

I was very impressed with how the box arrived. It reminded me of a Tiffany box, the blueish color and white ribbon, classy all the way! We now use the box for their treasures (my version of treasure is a little different than theirs, but that's ok). 


Can you imagine opening a gift like this? or even just something that you ordered? Love it! 

pardon the marker, Bean thought the box was his! Silly toddlers!

I was concerned with the quality of the apron when I ordered it, you never know what you will get when you order online. I was pleasantly surprised. The apron chef hat, oven, cookie cutters and rolling pin were fantastic! The apron is light weight and hangs nicely on the children. The font was a perfect shade of blue to contrast but not be overbearing. When you are purchasing the set, you have the availability to choose the font color, Royal blue, Fuchsia Pink and Silver. There is also a pink apron set. The chef hat is adjustable with Velcro which was very helpful as Bean and Pumpkin are very different in size. 

I wish I could tell you how happy my children were to wear the apron and be "Mama's little Chef."  They were the coolest people they know,  the best part about this apron, is they now have another element to their dramatic play area of room. Love watching them use their imagination. 

inside the box- this is great gift 

In my house there is a fight to see who can help me with the meals, and now it is a fight to wear the apron! Can't win them all can you? 

After wearing the apron and the oven mitt, while cooking for real (as my kiddos) call it, I washed the apron. You cannot even tell that it has been washed. It came out of the washer and dryer just like it had arrived to us! 



gotta love the spark in the background!

in his kitchen (I think he has taken over his sister's play kitchen)

as you can see they are very different in size and easily able to share the apron!

I highly recommend you not only check out My 1st years but feel confident buying one of their many beautiful items. If you are looking for a wonderful gift for someone or for yourself, this is your one stop shop!

Travel Tuesday: Moss Glen Falls Trail: Stowe, VT

As we have been touring the state of Vermont and fun places to visit, I've been waiting to share this place with you. A little while back I shared with you Moss Glen Falls right outside of Granville. Today, I want to take you to Moss Glen Falls and trail in Stowe. I have to say this is one of my favorite places to take my kiddos. We love hiking and having all of the children on different ability levels makes it very hard to all enjoy a place without there being some struggles. This is a place where we can all go and love every minute of it.

Getting to the waterfall is relatively easy, traveling on Route 100 from Stowe Village, make a right onto Randolph Road and then another quick right onto Moss Glen Falls Road. As you drive on Moss Glen Falls Road you will come to a bend in the road with a very obvious parking lot for the falls. The trail is pretty easy, often walking on wooden boards or a decent size path.
Sign in the parking lot beginning of the trail

The falls themselves are beautiful, the hike is a pretty decent one with points to where you can hope in the Moss Glenn Brook and enjoy the water. Depending on the time of year you visit and also the water flow. If you choose you can hike to the top of the hill directly across from the waterfall. You will have an amazing view of the top part of the waterfall but the bottom will not be visible.
 
warning sign as you reach the top of the hike (the hike is about 1/2 a mile)

 
viewing the top part of the waterfall (I made them sit, after all there is a cliff right there)

 The falls themselves are 125 feet tall,making it the largest cascade in Vermont; as you see the falls you will see that they are broken up into smaller waterfalls. I love the hike to the top for exercise and to enjoy a hike. If you want a wonderful view of the falls then you need to hike halfway up the beaten path and then hop in the water.

Falls from the top of the hike (as you can see, the bottom portion is not visible)    


When you hike in the brook, you come across what I like to call tide pools, I know that isn't the technical name but it was the best way to describe them. You can swim at the bottom of the brook, the water is clear and you can sit and relax or swim. Can you guess which one my children chose? 

To get to the tide pools you have to walk up the brook, this runs parallel to the path/hike. Again depending on the rainfall and how fast the brook is moving, the hike is easier or more difficult. 
the hike turning point, you either walk five more feet and down a small grade to get into the brook or continue walking up the hill through the trees to get to the top.

If you choose to walk the brook, which is our favorite part to do, I highly recommend you have water shoes. The rocks are very wet and slippery (for all my Pittsburgh readers: slippy). 

You will walk along the brook and there is a huge rock, this is the mile marker or the gentle giant, at this point you will be at the tide pools. 

walking the brook, this was a higher water day

getting read to climb on the gentle giant (the turning point of the brook)

We did it! Now to slide down (gently of course) and go into the tide pools.
The nice things about this hike, is there are few different entrances to the water. This particular day we chose to walk up the brook and collect pretty stones, and leaves as we walked. You can also take the path to the tide pools (if it has rained recently this path become a mud pit and very hard to get into the brook safely). 

The tide pools are fun to swim in and many people actually have picnics right along the brook.

This was a higher water day, it came up to Pumpkin's chest. Other times that we have visited it was ankle depth. I love coming here as the kiddos are able to climb, explore, swim and skip rocks. I can put myself in a central location and be within arms distance of all of them. It's a win-win.

 Sometimes the waterfall is too strong to climb (like in the picture above), this was a good day for swimming but not for hiking. The water coming down is moving very fast and there is a bed of rocks that is extremely hard to navigate with strong water current. 

close up of the falls at the bottom (notice the water isn't as strong) 






On days when the water isn't as strong you are able to climb the actual falls and look at the waterfall from the top. This is a very popular hike in the spring and summer for this reason. Vermont does not have a lot of public swimming pools and to be honest most of them are very expensive. Some of the resorts open their indoor pools and offer lessons but most of the Vermonters just hike and swim in nature's swimming pools. 

the cliffs you stand if you hike to the top of the waterfall (picture taken from the bottom of the falls)

3/4 of the way down the falls on a low water flow day.
There is nothing better than getting outdoors and exploring. I always find that I have less behavior problems when we get out into nature. Studies have shown that people that are in nature 20 minutes a day, have less stress, more life expectancy and overall general health. I say, you cannot beat that.

If it is a hot summer day and you are looking to swim, or want a wonderful hike in the fall, you need to get to Moss Glen Falls Trail in Stowe. After you are done hiking you can go into the village and get some fabulous food!

You don't see things like this when you sit at home on the couch! Travel the world, one place at a time.
