Summer Activities at Home for the Family

Though it may seem like 2018 just began not too long ago, here we are already into the summer season! School is out, the kids are home, and that means there will be plenty of opportunities to spend time as a family. Here are some fun ideas that you can do at home as a family this summer!

Daytime Activities

The sun is shining, the backyard is freshly mowed, and something most associated with summer is always at your fingertips- the backyard barbecue. The 4th of July doesn’t have to be the only reason to fire up the grill in the summer, and even though it is easy to grab fast food on the way home the payoff of a homecooked meal outside on a nice weather day is a great family bonding experience. Let the kids get crafty beforehand and make their own fun, custom aprons for Dad to wear while cooking, for mom to use while tending to the garden, or for themselves!

Using Donor Egg IVF After 35

This is a guest post.


From taking a gap year to saving up to buy our first home, there are a number of reasons why many of us are settling down to family life far later than our ancestors.

In our grandparents’ generation, the idea of getting pregnant in your late thirties was almost unheard of – but today it’s becoming increasingly common.

Statistics indicate that over the last 45 years, the average age of first-time moms has increased to 26.3 years – an increase of 5 whole years. In some countries, the mean age of first-time moms is over 30.

Silky, Shiny Hair with Desert Essence

I received this product for free from Moms Meet to use and post my honest opinions. Compensation for this post was provided and this page may contain affiliate links.

I love trying out new products. Although I have do have skin and scalp sensitivities, I am still brave enough to try new brands but the key, in my opinion, is reading labels. And when you can feel good about trying about brand's product because you can understand what is in it, that makes all the difference.


I am pretty particular about the products that I use on my hair. I am still getting use to wavy hair that I started having more and more of since my first pregnancy in 2010. It is so weird how pregnancy can have unexpected side effects, like changing your hair texture. But since it does, I am more cautious with the products I use on my hand while still having to try new ones to find out what works for me. The worst pregnancy/hair side effect that happened to me was more breakage, so I need something that can help improve my hair health overall as well. Desert Essence Anti-Breakage Shampoo & Conditioner smells great and leaves my hair feeling hydrated and light.
