Small Disclosure

Summer sure did get here quickly! A summer BBQ is the perfect way to spend those glorious sunny days outdoors. Here are some awesome tips for throwing that perfect summer BBQ.

Don’t Forget the Shade

Everyone loves some sun, right? Just make sure you provide your guests with a way out of the sun. Set up a nice tent or beach umbrella for people to get a break from the scorching sun.

Lots of Cold Drinks

Is there anything better on a hot sunny day than cold drinks? I think not. One of my favorite things to do for our guests is fill a cooler with ours and their favorite drinks. It keeps everyone cool, calm, and satisfied when they can grab something cold to drink while standing around chatting.

Add Water Fun

When it comes to BBQs around our house, we add some sort of water fun. There may be water balloons, a slip and slide, or even a little kiddy pool. You need to have the best entertainment for the kids, so they’ll let the adults have some fun too. Continue reading »

If you know me in real life, you know that I am always looking for new ways to keep my boys entertained and busy.  They’re energetic little boys and when I heard that Killington Mountain in Vermont was opening a brand new adventure center, I couldn’t have been more excited about it.

Eight new attractions are open starting TODAY!   They include a 4,800’ alpine mountain coaster experience, a four-story ropes course with 42 obstacles above a 5,000 square foot maze, a 1200’ long Skyeride that seats two guests at a time and rises over 200’ in the air, Segway tours, ATV/UTV mountain tours, re-designed and expanded beginner and intermediate mountain bike trails built along with our industry leading mountain bike venue designers Gravity Logic, and a new BOGS Hiking Center.

You can get individual prices for each, or buy an Adventure Center Day Pass for the best value.

Adventure Center Day Pass –
$39 (ages 7+); $15 (ages 6 and under), includes:

  • Three rides on the Skyeride

If you know anything about me, you know that my family is always on the go.  I love taking them new places and exposing my boys to as many new experiences as possible.  I love spending time with them learning new things and creating memories that will last them a lifetime.

Have you ever wondered how Italy earned its reputation for creating world-class meals? The secret is actually quite simple: it starts with quality ingredients. With Bertolli, you can bring the taste of Tuscany right to your table.
