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 - Movies: Playing With Fire, Books: Postcards from World War II

We may have received one or more of the books and/or other products mentioned below for review purposes and/or complimentary tickets to any movies mentioned for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own.

Movies: Playing With Fire

Me - Today I am recommending Playing With Fire. Playing With Fire is about a group of smoke jumpers who rescue three children from a burning cabin, and then become responsible for them. At first it seemed like this movie was going to just be a movie full of action sequences and visual jokes. However, as the kids form relationships with the smoke jumpers, it really becomes a sweet touching movie full of heart. Accordingly, this is a great movie for everyone whether you love action movies, comedies or you just like movies that stir your emotions.

Books: Postcards from World War II

Mom - Today I am recommending Postcards from World War II by Robynn Clairday and Matt Clariday. With Veterans day coming up next week, this is a great time to think about the soldiers who fought for our country. This book takes a look at the soldiers of World War II in particular through the correspondence they sent home during the war. It also gives a year by year history of the war and what was going on in the country during that time as a result of the war. It is much more interesting way to learn about this period of history through soldiers postcards home than just to read a cut and dried textbook.

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


  1. Playing With Fire sounds like a funny movie that I could watch with my whole family.

    1. Not only is it funny but it has a lot of heart too. It really is a great family movie. Thank you for visiting Says Me Says Mom and for your comment.
