For family night this week we headed to Washington Lake Park, a large county park with two playgrounds, volleyball, soccer, basketball, a skate park, and a an amphitheater. This is the same park where we’ve been to a couple of free movie nights. The park is fairly large and has wide paved trails that circle […]

An excessive heat warning, 90 plus degrees with high humidity, the blazing sun… a basketball court. Are we intimidated. No way! This week (and many other weeks this summer) Gloucester county is sponsoring inexpensive sports skills workshops in various parks across the county. We’ll be out there with the coaches for an hour and a […]

I’m so proud of myself for having come up with a long list of potential places to visit with kids this summer. This list includes the usual (aka. the Beach or Adventure Aquarium) and the obscure. This post is about one of the obscure: the South Jersey Museum of American History in Glassboro. I’d never […]

It is family night again. What to do, what to do… Do you know another great thing about South Jersey? It is only 45 minutes from the famous family friendly Jersey Shore (NOT the Jersey Shore where the idiots from MTV’s Jersey Shore hang out). Everyone love a day at the beach. If you live […]

My dad insists that my son call him “Grandfather”. Grandfather and grandson are great buddies and when they get together there is no stopping them. Literally. They get ¬†up early and play ALL day, no stopping. My parents are fortunate enough to be able to live in Heritage Shores, a nice neighborhood on a golf […]
