Mountain biking and dirt go hand in hand and recently when my eight year old completed his bike race, his bike looked terrible. We have had rain for weeks and then they hit the mud.  In the past we have had to help me when it comes to washing his bike, but this time he did it himself using Runaway Bike FOAM Bike Wash.

Rinse. Recycle. Reimagine Bathroom Recycling Program

AsTheyGrowUp.com received product to facilitate this review. We give our honest opinion of products. Some post may also contain affiliate links

This morning we were blessed to wake up to an absolutely gorgeous day.  As I’m  hanging the clothes out to dry, I’m reminded of just how beautiful it really is.  The warmth of the sun surrounds me while I’m listening to the birds singing their good morning songs and the little squirrels are scurry past. We live in a world filled with beauty and one of the may ways our family tries to keep it this way for our future generations is by recycling.

Homemade Fabric Softener

Warm weather has arrived which means the time has come for me to hang laundry out to dry.  I know that a lot of people do this year round which is awesome, but  just have terrible luck with the cold weather and getting my clothes to dry.  However, with the first sign of Spring, the clothes head out to the line.

Life Before, During and After Melanoma: My Personal Story Plus Tips On How You Can Prevent It *** Does Contain Graphic Images

I don’t know about you all, but I am having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact it is already May.  While May is a month full of busyness for my family, it is also an important month for me personally. In the past, May meant finishing up a school year, planning Memorial Day shenanigans and reeving up my tan. Fast forward to now and May means helping my own kids wrap up a school year, try to plan Memorial Day around crazy work schedules and advocating against Melanoma.

URBNFit Long Exercise Bands

I lift weights daily, but if I’m traveling (which happens a lot during the summer months), doing stretches, or  leg workouts I love adding in resistant bands. I can still feel the burn and they are just awesome to travel with.

Spring Cleaning Tips from WaterSavers

AsTheyGrowUp.com received product to facilitate this review. We give our honest opinion of products. Some post may also contain affiliate links

I admit that by the end of the winter season, my car needs to be cleaned.  I’m not one to go out in the cold to clean the car and with trying to hurry from the car to the house, the kids seem to leave more of their junk in there. So really, spring cleaning isn’t just for your home – it’s a smart thing to do for your vehicles, too. A few simple steps can help boost your vehicle’s integrity and beauty while maintaining its value, plus you might even regain that new-car smell.

The month of April has been HUGE for PBS kids, which is one of our favorite channels.  This month kicks off its annual Explore the Outdoors initiative which encourages families to shake off the winter chill, go outside and discover nature. Our family is always outdoors and we look forward to the time when we can “shake off” the winter chill and start enjoying tons of outdoor activities.

With not only this being the PBS annual Explore the Outdoors initiative, but Earth Month as well, the timing is perfect to help introduce young viewers to the wonders of nature and provide families with educational tools and resources to plan their own adventure!
