Mo Willems 'We are in an Art-ivity Book!' An interactive Art activity book for creative kids

We are so excited to be back sharing with you the latest Mo Willems book and partnering on a sponsored post with Disney-Hyperion for the #ReadMo ambassador program!

We have loved Mo Willems (New York Times best selling Author) books over the years, and many of them are still my kids favorites!  The newly released book We Are in an ART-ivity Book! by Mo Willems and Mr. Warburton is a new favorite amongst my kids (great for kids ages 4-8)!  They have been begging to take turns with it, and I don’t blame them.  It is pretty rad!

It is a super fun hands-on activity book with games, art projects, awards, and more!

6 Steps to Becoming More Mindful

A Book That Takes It's Time

I am so excited to be partnering with Workman Publishing over next several months on some special releases by Flow Magazine.  Flow is a magazine that takes its time, celebrating creativity, imperfection, and life’s little pleasures.  In a time when other print media is focusing their energies on their digital properties, Flow Magazine is finding success by fully embracing the physical qualities of paper.  It’s weight, texture, the way it takes color, and the formats and ways in which it can be delivered.  Their newly released book, A Book That Takes Its Time (An Unhurried Adventure in Creative Mindfulness), is a book about mindfulness and a book that inspires mindfulness written by the editors of Flow Magazine along with Irene Smit and Astrid van der Hulst.  It is a book about doing, about experience, and about intention. This book is a great reminder to slow down, breathe deeply, and be present.  It is a book you will want in print since it includes hundreds of interactive paper goodies!  It includes, journals, postcards, stickers, thank you notes, posters, and dozens of other treasures.  I have absolutely enjoyed reading it, and filling out some of the prompts and interactive activities!

A Book That Takes It's Time A Book That Takes It's TimeA Book About Becoming More Mindful and Present

I feel like lately the word busy is brought up in nearly every conversation.  How are things?  Busy.  We are always busy these days.  I don’t know if it is the stage of life I am in or if something has changed, but I really think it is both.  The younger generations feel so much pressure, stress, loneliness, and anxieties.  I feel like it is much more than ever before.  But why?  I think technology is to blame, privilege, lack of being mindful and present and intentional in how we are living.

Soldier Hollow Classic Sheepdog Championship

If you are in Utah and are looking for something fun to do this Labor Day weekend, the Solider Hollow Classic Sheepdog Championship is a great option!

These world class sheepdog’s are highly impressive with their skills, and dedication!  It was our first time going to the event as a family, and we couldn’t believe they were able to control those sheep like that!

Soldier Hollow Classic Dog Splash

Another event my kids liked the best is the Splash Dogs!  We loved watching the dogs try to jump out the furthest into the water!  Even the little dogs were fun to watch!

Soldier Hollow Classic Sheepdog Championship

There was a lot to see including the Sheepdogs, Splash Dogs, Highland games, K9 Acrobatic Dog shows, Raptor bird shows, vendors, and food trucks!

Zermatt Resort Family Friendly Hotels Zermatt Resort Carousel

We made a little vacation of it, and stayed at the Zermatt Resort nearby!  It was our first time staying up at the Zermatt, and it won’t be our last!  It is in the beautiful mountains of Midway, Utah.  The kids loved the pool, the free carousel rides, and the little bakery was so cute and tasty!

We love that there are so many family friendly activities to do here in Utah!

Hope you are enjoyed a fun and safe Labor Day Weekend!
