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 :I'll Be There For You; The One About Friends, Games: Pressman Games: Kids Know Best, Make 7 and Smath

Mom - Today I am recommending I'll Be There For You: The One About Friends by Kelsey Miller. If you are a big fan of the TV series Friends, I wouldn't say this is the only book you need. There are several great books that have been written about the series each one slightly different but worth reading. This book is a great addition to that set of books. The book focuses on the history of the show and how it influenced and was in turn influenced by its time and what it is about the show that resonates with so many people. It gives an overview of the series from its earliest development, through casting the series, through  highlights of the various seasons  right up to the end of the series and beyond. It includes comprehensive details about the actors and creators of the show including their backgrounds, how they came to be involved with the show,  how their careers continued after the show and how their future careers were affected by their time on the show. It is an extremely fascinating read, and a great addition to any true Friends fan's library.

Me & Mom - Today we are recommending the following Pressman Games:

Kids Know Best  - Kids Know Best is a fun board game similiar to Trivial Pursuit. However, it is much easier. You do not have to earn slices of pie to win. You just answer questions and if you reach the end first you win. The great thing about this game is that parents and children can play together and each have an equal opportunity to win because there are separate sets of questions fo kids and adults.

Make7- This game is like Connect4. However, instead of  using blank tiles, you use numbered tiles. Instead of trying to get four in a row, you try to get numbers that add up to 7 in a row.

Smath - This game is like scrabble but with numbers. You build equations off each other. It is a little harder than the other games we recommended but it can be fun especially for kids who love math.

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