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 - Music: Disney Dreamin' With Matthew Morrison & Books: The Cut of Pride

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

Music: Disney Dreamin' with Matthew Morrison

Me - Today I am recommending Disney Dreamin' With Matthew Morrison. This is a really fun CD. It is full of new jazzy versions of beloved Disney songs. There are so many great songs I can't even pick a favorite. Some I especially enjoy, however, include Friend Like Me and A Whole New  World. Prior to listening to the CD, I was familiar with the original versions of  most of the songs, but not all. However, even the songs I hadn't heard before I liked equally as well as the songs I was familiar with. In fact, there isn't a bad song on the CD. Although this CD is great for listening to with babies and small children, it is perfect for anyone of any age especially those who loves Disney or just great music in general.

Books: The Cut of Pride

 Mom - Today I am talking about The Cut of Pride by James Misko. This is the story of  Jeff Baker who goes to work at an Oregon mink farm to save money for college. There he meets a host of interesting but mostly unsavory characters.  The book is very informative and really paints a vivid picture of what it is like to work on a mink farm.  However, it might be a bit too descriptive for some people especially those that are particularly sensitive. If you find yourself looking away at movies quite often, you probably don't want to read this book.  On the other hand, if you are not squeamish and you like a books  about hardworking active characters, you may enjoy this book.

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