I simply can’t believe that Spring Break is almost here! Looking for a fun day outing for the whole family? Knott’s Berry Farm is a favorite of ours! My son actually thinks that it is the best amusement park and he loves the roller coasters and thrill rides. I am a big fan of anything boysenberry especially jam and the salt water taffy! I just discovered the boysenberry salt water taffy on this past visit!

I like that there are also more mellow rides since I am getting older and can not handle every roller coaster!  I am also a BIG fan of Snoopy! I sometimes think that I like to go to Knott’s Berry Farm just to see Snoopy  and his pals!

Treats for the Easter Basket! Welch's® Fruit Snacks and Go Organically® Fruit Snacks

It’s almost Easter since it is early this year! It’s time to start thinking about what to put in those Easter Baskets and plastic eggs! I know…yummy chocolates and jelly beans are a must! But, it would be nice to throw in some healthier snack options too. I like the following because they really are great for anytime of the year!


Welch’s® Fruit Snacks are America’s favorite fruit snack brand. The Welch’s® Fruit Snacks Easter themed box and pouch have custom Easter-themed graphics with fun shapes which include a Chick, Egg, Flower and Bunny. The snacks are perfect for Easter Baskets and stuffing eggs. Moms and Dads love that every pack is made with REAL Fruit, is Fat Free, Gluten Free, and contains No Preservatives. Welch’s® Fruit Snacks feature fruit as the first ingredient, so they taste delicious!

I like that even older kids will like these and that they actually do have real fruit in them!

Upcoming Book to look for: Bartholomew Quill Available on April 5th!


Bartholomew Quill is clever and curious, but he doesn’t know quote who or what he is. He has feathers not fur, so he can’t be a moose; he is black like a puffin but his beak is the wrong color. This determined bird won’t stop asking questions until he discovers what the reader knows – Bartholomew Quill is a crow!

This is a fun story for young children! I think that they will like Bartholomew Quill and his curiosity! I also love the illustrations!

You can purchase and find out more here.
