Come-See-Me, Teddy Bear Tea Party


Another “Come-See-Me” event that is fun for the little ones is the Teddy Bear Tea Party. I had taken Popstar and Flash when they were younger and thought I would take Hulk and Princess this year. I also ended up taking my niece along with us as well. The kids took their Teddy Bears to have a check up and also met up with the “Come-See-Me” mascot, Glen the Frog again along with a lot of other fun things to see and do. It was a little hot, but we all had a great time!

Come-See-Me, Truck Show


Yet another “Come-See-Me” event that we enjoy is the annual Truck Show. It is always so much fun, especially for little boys to get to see up close all the cool trucks and some of them they are even allowed to climb inside and blow the horn! It was an exciting time for the kids. Princess was looking for the school bus and Hulk just wanted to see everything! Not only is it fun, but it is very educational for the kids! Free school field trip..yay!

Strawberry Banana Icebox Cake

The last few weeks, Jason and I have started trying to find a new dessert to try on Sunday evenings. We usually don’t have dessert during the week, so we thought it would be a fun way to end the weekend with a new treat for everyone to try out. Today we actually came up with our own recipe. It’s very simple to make and this time of year, when it is strawberry season it is especially yummy! We call it Strawberry Banana Icebox Cake.

Come-See-Me, Chalk on Main Street


Last Friday evening, Jason and I took our two youngest, Princess and Hulk to a Come-See-Me event. Come-See-Me is an annual Spring festival in Rock Hill. It goes on for almost 2 weeks and there are tons of events and activities going on all over town. It’s a really fun time for everyone. The chalk on Main Street was very cool.

An afternoon at Glencairn Gardens


Last week we spent an afternoon at beautiful Glencairn Gardens, which is near our home. It is a beautiful time of year to visit gardens, with all the spring blooms and just perfect weather. We went with my sister and her kids, so as always it was an exciting time. Glencairn Gardens is such a stunning and lovely place to spend time, we go there quite often.

Strawberry Season is here!!!

Strawberry season in the south is an awesome time of year! You know summer is just around the corner when the strawberries come in. We had to go pick some, of course! It was so much fun! We went with my sister and all of the cousins to a farm out in the country called Cotton Hills Farm. It was a bit of a drive, about 30 minutes but worth the effort. We picked a total of 10 gallons. With 9 kids picking, it didn’t take very long! Then after we got home, we made some delicious strawberry jelly!

Freezer Meals

One great thing I have started doing in the last year is freezer meals. It is so nice to have a freezer full of meals that are ready to go in the crock pot. It not only helps save you time but also money because you don’t end up buying fast food on those days when you just don’t have time to cook. It has been a life saver for our family! My hubby and I put together some at the end of November so that we’d have them to get us through the holidays and it was so nice. It really made the holidays a lot more enjoyable knowing that I didn’t have to spend a lot of time cooking dinner.
