I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Tips for Tuesday - Books: Flipped and Come Home

Me- Today I am recommending Flipped by Wendelin Van Draanen. Flipped was a really good book. It was short and quick. It is a two sided story of Julianna Baker and Bryce Loski. They tell the same story but each from their own point of view. At first, she liked him but he didn't like her, but then it flipped. It was a good book. There is a movie version but the book was better.

Mom - Today I am recommending Come Home by Lisa Scottoline. It is a mystery like Ms. Scottoline's usual books but it is more similar to her book just prior to  this one, Save Me, than to her series books about the law firm of Bennie Rosato and her associates. It is about a woman named Jill Farrow whose ex-husband dies. His daughter, Abby is convinced that he was murdered and she wants Jill to help her prove it. This books raises some interesting questions about family bonds and whether or not a parent/stepchild relationship is or should be broken by the dissolution of the marriage that created the bond. I enjoyed reading it.

And that's our view. Tune in tomorrow for Where-To-Go Wednesday
