Welcome to Life Without Pink! You can subscribe to me via RSS feed or find me at Facebook and Twitter. Thanks for visiting!Tweet Last summer, I took my boys to a birthday party. One of the games they played was throw a ping pong ball into a cup (with a fish) and you get to take it home. Lucky us, we took home four goldfish that day. My oldest named his fish, Carl and Max. My youngest named his, Hugg-a-lot and Piglet. Little (or should I say big) Piglet got his name because when it’s feeding time, he is the first one that will eat all of the food pushing the other fish out of the way. My boys think he is the funniest thing. […]

Exciting New Toys for Boys #playskoolplaydate

July 17, 2014
Transformers Mixable, Mashable Heroes Figure 2 Pack Boys

Tweet When I was growing up, I lived in a neighborhood full of kids. Every day we’d run outside in our bathing suits and pick a backyard to play in. Our moms would relax under the shade while the kids swam, ate, and swam some more. That’s one of the things I really miss for my boys. We live on 3+ acres, which is awesome but my boys can’t just run outside and find a friend to play with. We have to actually organize a playdate and with our crazy schedule it doesn’t always work out…..until someone does it for you like Hasbro! We were recently invited to attend a Playskool playdate in the Franklin Room on the 4th floor of the Westin Hotel in […]

Resources for Summer Learning While Traveling! #PBSKids

July 14, 2014
Resources for summer learning while traveling Create & Learn

Tweet We love traveling with our boys in the summer and we are always on-the-go. But that doesn’t mean the learning has to stop. We set aside time every day for reading and some type of learning activity. I think that learning while exploring is the best way! There are so many ways to challenge the kids’ minds during the summer days when you are away from home. Recently, we took a family trip with one of our close friends and their kids to Jamaica. It was the first time our kids (4 of them) went to an island and we had a great time. While it’s summer and I wanted them to enjoy their vacation, I also didn’t want them to go an entire […]

20+ Ways To Enjoy Your Next Family Road Trip #familytravel

20+ ways to enjoy your next family road trip Travel Tips

Tweet Summer means one thing for us……lots of traveling! From visiting friends and family to going on vacation, we will be spending a ton of time in the car. My family loves going on adventures and it’s such a great way to expose my boys to the world around them. But it happens to me all the time. As soon as the car starts moving, my boys will shout from the backseat, “Mom, I want a snack.” or “I’m bored.” Sound familiar? I’ve always dreaded going on long car rides. However, I’ve learned that when Mom is prepared, the trip runs a lot smoother. I’m less stressed, my husband is relaxed, and the boys have fun in the backseat. Thankfully my children are at an […]

Wake Up with Pop Clocky {Video Demo}

July 7, 2014
Pop Clocky Featured

Tweet It’s summer and my boys have been loving the fact that they can sleep in a bit, however they still need to wake up once in awhile before 8am so we can hit the road for a fun adventure. We were recently sent a Pop Clocky to test out, which was perfect timing! You may be wondering what exactly is this? Pop Clocky is a fun-loving alarm clock designed to wake children in a goofy, delightful way. When the alarm goes off, Pop Clock’s quirky-cute monster-esque head pops off. To stop the alarm, users simply pop Pop Clocky’s head back into place on its body. Basically, your kids will HAVE to get out of bed to turn this one off….how brilliant is that?! All […]
