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: How They Met and Movies: Grand-Daddy Day Care

We may have been given one or more of the books or other products mentioned below for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own.

Books: How They Met 

Mom - Today I am recommending How They Met by David Friedman. This book, a compilation of stories of how a variety of  people met their significant others, is the perfect book for Valentine's Day. The stories in the book include both those of famous couples like Frank and Kathie Lee Gifford and Lucie Arnaz and Laurence Luckinbill and those of ordinary unknown couples. The couples represented in the book come from all different backgrounds.  The stories include those of devoutly religious couples, those of same sex couples and more. If you are in a relationship this book will make you reflect on how you met your significant other. If not, it will give you hope. People meet in the most random ways, and you never know what is just around the corner. That is a great message not just for Valentine's Day but for every day.

Movies: Grand-Daddy Day Care

Mom - Today I am recommending Grand-Daddy Day Care. Grand-Daddy Day Care is about a man whose father-in-law comes to live with him, and he decides to open a day care facility for his father-in-law and other people's parents to raise money to save his house.  The movie is related to the previous movies Daddy Day Care and Daddy Day Camp but is not directly a sequel although one or two of the characters from those films make brief appearances in this film. Although at first it is seems like it is just going to be another movie where older people are going to be treated like doddering fools ultimately it is their strength, resolve, and intelligence that drives the resolution of the plot. Also, the movie is a nostaglic treat if you are interested in seeing such former TV stars as George Wendt of Cheers, Julia Duffy of Newhart, and Linda Gray of Dallas.

Grand-Daddy Day Care is available now on DVD, Digital, and On-Demand. For more information, visit www.uphe.com/movies/grand-daddy-day-care.

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