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 -  Today I am recommending Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll.This classic book is really fun to read. The characters are funny. A lot of strange things happen that would not happen in real life that makes it fun to read. My favorite characters are Alice and the Cheshire cat. Alice is a very brave character. I like the Cheshire Cat because he's so mysterious and interesting. It's a really good book, and I would really recommend reading it if you haven't already.

Mom - Today I am recommending two books.

First, I am recommending the novel, Wildfire by Harlyn Bryan.Camille Henderson and Quinten Duran are both talented singers on their own. Together they seem like the perfect couple. Then, Camille discovers that Quinten has been cheating on her and it forces her to reevaluate her life and their relationship. This book is an entertaining story told in interesting way. It is a story told mostly in flashbacks as the couple's friends are interviewed for a VH1 special on them. Seeing their relationship as it develops and as it is filtered through the eyes of their friends only makes you root for them even more. All in all, it is a sweet story.

Second, I am recommending the nonfiction book, The Immaculate Inning: Unassisted Triple Plays, 40/40 Seasons, and the Stories Behind Baseball's Rarest Feats by Joe Cox. Baseball is all about statistics and this book captures some of the most unique ones in the sport. If you want to know things like how many men hit two grand slams in a game or stole 100 bases in a seaspon or achieved other unusual lofty heights in baseball, this is the book for you. However, this is not just a book about numbers, in each chapter the pursuit of a few of the men who achieved each feat is described in more detail fleshing out the story and making it more than just a book of statistics. It is a great addition to any sports lover's library.

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