Happy First Birthday Andrew!

Elmo Birthday Party

Last Sunday marked our little Andrew’s first birthday – the same day we actually celebrated with family and friends in true ELMO style.  I just can’t believe my littlest dude is ONE! The big ONE. Could we pull off another ELMO first birthday celebration without Grandma’s presence? Could we manage the cake all by ourselves [...]

Great Wolf Lodge Howl-o-ween Review and Giveaway

Last weekend, the entire Stow clan got to experience yet another amazing overnight stay at Great Wolf Lodge New England.

Fun with EAElements at Blogger Bash NYC

Blogger Bash NYC #BBNYC

I did it. I dragged myself to NYC for a blogging event and I took  baby Andrew along for the ride. More on that to come. We survived it!  We actually had a lot of fun and met some pretty neat-o brands while we were at it. I love meeting new people and connecting with [...]

My Blogger Bestie

Dollops of Diane

I’ve mentioned her before; she’s something special. Some may call us the Bobbsey Twins because they know we’re quite the pair.  We’re so lucky to live in the same town and have kids who are playmates. In fact, I have a feeling that Owen and Daniel might be up to no good long before they [...]

Chipotle Fun with #Sofritas. And Then Puke. Again.
