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: Ever Alice and Dottir

We were given the below referenced books for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own.

Books: Ever Alice and Dottir

Mom - Today I am recommending two books.

The first book I am recommending is the novel, Ever Alice by H.J. Ramsay.  Ever Alice is a sequel to Alice in Wonderland. Is Alice merely crazy? Is Wonderland all in her head? That's what her family thinks and Alice has been whisked off to an asylum to cure her of her delusions. Then, suddenly the white rabbit appears and whisks her off  for another adventure in Wonderland.. Although the original Alice in Wonderland is considered a children's book, this book is not. The story is a familiar in many ways, and yet it is completely brand-new. It is delightfully unpredictable, and you'll never be sure exactly where it is heading. It is a must read for any fan of books that put a new spin on a  beloved classic.

The second book I am recommending is Dottir by Katrin Davidsdottir. Dottir is the inspirational autobiography of two time cross fitness champion, Katrin Davidsdottir. This book is not only about how to become a champion, it is also about how to overcome obstacles and learn from defeats. Katrin Davidsdottir is a terrific role model not only for young athletes, but for anyone. Her story shows how even in defeat and when we are not at our best we are always learning, and we can use that knowledge to become even better. Even if you have no interest in cross fitness, this book is an interesting and absorbing look into the mind and world of champion athlete.

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