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

Mom's view - Peter Who? is an another taken on how a nerdy guy named Peter Parker became Spiderman. It is not quite as overblown as Spiderman Turn Off the Dark. It is just a nice simple little story with some nice songs. I particularly enjoyed Aunt May's number "Nice Guys." Aunyt May is very funny here, and her character seems much more deloped than in other versions of the story. There is also a characer Betty Brant who is also funny although I don't remember her from other versions of the story.  Fans of the superhero genre would enjoy this take on Spiderman. However, it is not going to covert anyone who doesn't like the genre to begin with. All in all, it is decent story with some good lessons.

And that's our view. Tune in tomorrow for Tips for Tuesday.
