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

Me - 10 (Plus) Favorite Athletes  of all time, wow!
1) Gymnasts: McKayla Maroney, Aly Raisman and Gabby Douglass of the Fab Five US Women's 2012 Olympic team - Keeping  America's great gymnastic tradition alive
2) Gymnast : Shawn Johnson - A great gymnast and a great dancer on Dancing With the Stars as well.
3) Ice Dancers: Meryl Davis and Charlie White- America's First Ice Dance World and Olympic Champions

4)  Figure Skater: Gracie Gold - A really good skater who hopefully is only gong to get better.
5) Figure Skater: Kristi Yamaguchi - One of the most beauttiful gracefull skaters of all time and we love her yearly specials where skaters skate with their kids.

Mom - Here are 5 more of our all-time favorite athletes
6)Baseball Player: David Cone - Not only a talented Perfect game winning, Cy Young winning baseball player but an upstanding guy who treats everyone fellow athletes, reporters, and fans alike with respect. Young players can learn from him not just how to play baseball but how to conduct themselves in life.
7) Hockey Goalie: Martin Brodeur - One of those rare athletes who actually lived up to his promise. He helped turned the New Jersey Devils from "a mickey mouse organization" as Wayne Gretsky once said to perpetual Stanley Cup contenders for many years as well as three time Stanley Cup Champions.
8) Swimmer: Michael Phelps- 18 Olympic gold medals including 8 in one Olympics, enough said.

9) Figure Skaters: Michelle Kwan and Brian Boitano - Two skaters that have such an ease and beauty about their skating that they make it look effortless.
10) Pairs Figure Skaters: Ekaterina Gordeeva and Sergei Grinkov - The perfect pair on ice. I am glad that she was able to find happiness with someone else after his untimely death but my heart will always break a little bit to see her without him

And that's our view. Who is your favorite athlete of all time?

Tune in tomorrow for Tips for Tuesday.
