It’s a routine. I wake up to the alarm on my phone at 6:30am.  I check my messages, did the school text?  Is it a snow day?  Then I make my way over to The Weather Network app.  What are the temps today?  Warm, cold, bitter?  How will I plan the day’s cloths for the kids, and for me?  I crawl out of bed… Coffee. Just a week ago, the trees were still wearing at least half of their leaves, then when I woke this morning, I noticed that they’re … [Read more...]

Fun for all the family: Vacation in Las Vegas
