The Best Family Destinations: The Complete Idiots Guide

Hey Neighbors,

As you know we are still in Florida!  Panama City area now!  I still can not believe how warm it has been.  Anyway, I received a book, The Complete Idiots Guide to The Best Family Destinations.  Since I was born in Florida, and have lived here off and on my entire life, I can actually say that they cover alot of the neat family destinations.  Yes, of course they cover the big things like Disney, EPCOT, but I was surprised how many of the smaller places they cover.  Like they actually mention Green Meadows Petting Farm in Kissimee.  We had a great time there a few years ago.  And of course there is Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park in Homosassa.  They do mention the Arabian Nights, but not Medieval Times, which we were able to visit this trip while in the Orlando area.  Also missing was MOSI and the Tampa Lowry Park Zoo both in Tampa and both well worth visiting.

Then when you mention the beaches, we have been to may of them.  From Panama City Beach all the way to Clearwater Beach.  Then of course there is the other side of the state.  We love to camp on the east coast and go looking for shells in the morning.  We have found sand dollars, a seahorse of two and a sharks tooth, along with many beautiful shells. 

Overall they do a great job.  Yes there are some places missing, but they can't cover everything in every state.  This gives you a great overall resource for information.  The book covers all over the US, so if you are planning a trip anywhere in the states this would be a great source of information on family locations to visit.

We used this book in Texas a year ago, and found some unique places to visit then also.  I have a tendency to prefer the quieter less sought after choices, rather than the well-known crowded sites.  This book includes a sampling of both!

Be sure to get this book and keep it on your shelf, you never know when you might need it.

One neighbor will receive a copy of The Complete Idiots Guide to The Best Family Destinations.

Disclosure:I received no monetary compensation for this post.  I did receive one copy of The Complete Idiots Guide to The Best Family Destinations.  All thoughts and opinions are mine.

We plan on traveling all over the US, we just bought a travel trailer so we can travel as well as take the dogs with us.

P.S. I like the change in color of your background in your blog, it is much easier to read.(probably an old age thing:)

My daughter-in-law asked for things to do for gifts instead of toys for my grandchildren this year, and I think this book will help.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

 Hey neighbors, its with a heavy heart I let you all know that my mom (Lori) unexpectedly passed away the end of June.

Thank you all so much for your love and support over the years. ~Mercy
