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: The Broadway Lyric Coloring Book & As All My Fathers Were

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

Me - Today I am recommending The Broadway Lyric Coloring Book  This book is full of coloring pages that have lyrics from Broadway shows in the center and designs around them. I like this book because I like Broadway and everything about Broadway is cool. If you are familiar with Broadway shows particularly from the last few seasons as well as some really popular older shows, you will probably be familiar with the lyrics in this book. That makes the book even more enjoyable because it reminds you of these shows. The designs are nice too, and they give you a lot to color. It's a great book for people who love Broadway and love art especially coloring.

Mom - Today I am recommending As All My Fathers Were by James Misko. This is a book about a pair of brothers, Richard and Seth Barrett. According to the terms of their mother's will they are required to recreate the journey their grandfather made when he established the family ranch. If they do not complete the journey in the required way within the required amount of time, they will forfeit their inheritance. Along the way they have to contend with many obstacles both natural and manmade including a group of powerful men conspiring to keep them from completing their journey. Although, the book was a little hard to get into at first, before long I was completely drawn into the story. It is a very intriguing book. It keeps you wanting to turn pages to find out what is going to happen next. It is also a very timely book because of a subplot regarding an old timer named, Filoh who tags along on the brother's journey trying to make them see how current farming methods are poisoning the earth and how it is necessary to find more earth friendly methods for the benefit of both the earth and the people who inhabit it. All in all, I enjoyed this book a lot more than I expected to. 

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