How to Save Time at the Movies with the Fandango App

Can Little Ones See Inside Out?

We’ve had a couple of rainy Sundays lately that were perfect for taking the kids to the movies. Last weekend I took the three big kids to see Inside Out (PG.) It’s classic Pixar — a movie that works well for both kids and adults. Your children will explore the feelings of Joy, Fear, Sadness, […]

Outdoor Delights from BJ’s {Giveaway}

BJ's Giveaway to BJ's Wholesale Club

After a record-breaking New England winter, we can’t get enough of the great outdoors. I love beginning my mornings with coffee on the deck and taking Andrew outside to play before the sun gets too hot. Between our backyard fire pit, our newly paved driveway and our deck, our outside space is actually quite nice. […]

Totally Taken Care Of and A Shrimp Salad Recipe

Stow Kids dentist

After months and months of rescheduling, the Stow Kids’ visit to the dentist finally happened this week. Taking three kids to the dentist at once calls for a long stay, but it’s what we are used to. We like to get it all over with in one go and I like the way they support […]

Bonefish Grill Review Westwood, MA

Bang Bang Shrimp Signature Appetizer

I’m pretty obsessed with the new University Station in Westwood, MA which offers up a new shopping and dining destination to the folks who live south of Boston. I had only been there once and was dying to get back, so when Bonefish Grill invited me to come taste their menu and experience the new […]

High Falls Gorge Lake Placid NY

High Falls Gorge Lake Placid NY

As we gear up for summer 2015, we often find ourselves talking about past trips that we absolutely loved and would want to do again as a family. Last year, we visited Lake Placid, New York and had an absolute blast exploring the area with all four kids for the first time. We made some […]

ASUS Transformer Book Chi

Aus Transformer Book T100 Chi

So just around the time that THIS happened… This happened… Isn’t she lovely? She’s my new ASUS Transformer Book Chi. It’s the T100 and it couldn’t have happened at a better time. You see, the kids had taken over my 5 year old iPad as their own and it was really annoying. When the screen […]

19 Months of Andrew

Toddler in the tub

Hard to believe he’s finally walking (for just about a month now) and talking up a storm. When I got back from Mom 2 Summit, I found a list of Andrew’s words that Grandma and Granddad made for us. I must get this list of words up on the blog before he runs his first […]

Stow Kids Daily Vlogs on YouTube

We’re almost recovered from our trip to Florida. It’s been a challenging week all around. While Chris was away in CA, we Stows took part in a few challenges ourselves! Andrew’s starting off the long weekend with a double ear infection, so we’ll be staying put this Memorial Day. Perhaps I’ll get another longer run […]

Dealing with Girl Hair


Girl hair – still a huge problem in this house, but she’s getting more and more independent about washing it on her own and putting it up and out of her face when I ask her to (ummm, that’d be every day.) Nine seems to be the magical age where she is beginning to obsess […]

Legoland Hotel Florida Review

We just returned home from an amazing 5 night stay in HOT, HOT, HOT Florida. The main reason for our visit was to be a part of the new Legoland Hotel grand opening at Legoland, Florida. What an amazing opportunity it was! Who goes to Orlando for two days? We decided to make the most […]
