Review: Kid’s Birthday Party at Central Coast Aquarium, Avila Beach

Both of our kids have December birthdays, three days apart, less than two weeks from Christmas. Needless to say, our holiday season is a liiittle much.

Toy Review: Step2 Euro Edge Kitchen

First, I gotta say thank you to Step2 for letting me test this Euro Edge Kitchen as part of the Step2 toy tester program.

But, unfortunately, I tend not to use it because it’s fairly difficult to open without spills its contents all over the floor.
