Cool Summer Day Camps in Fairfield County, Connecticut

This spring my daughters have requested that they be allowed to take up tennis, lacrosse, piano, hip hop, sculpting, drumming (heaven help me), acting, soccer, karate, hockey, photography, Italian, and guitar.  Hmmm...

While they would love for me to sign them each up for 85 after school activities per week, I’ve limited them each to two.  Partly for their well being, and well…largely for my own sanity.  I’m thinking, however, that summer camp might be the ticket in terms of letting them try some new fun activities without committing ourselves to a whole year of it. After all, who really knows how long an 8-year old’s passion for the tambourine will last?

Breakfast Spots to take the Kids in Fairfield County, CT

There comes a day in parenthood, when you realize it's time. Time to bite the binky, and actually enter a restaurant with your seriously messy/boisterous/insert-adjective-here family unit.   Considering the sugar per serving ratio, breakfast undoubtedly provides the biggest chance for success, whether you're dealing with toddlers or teens.  So then, where to go with your precious weekend mornings?  We visited a couple hot spots we'd heard about (I know, such a sacrifice.  All kidding aside, though, it's mucho complicated with a dairy allergy in the picture). We also asked around.  And we'd love for you to keep the conversation going if we've missed your favorite breakfast hangout…please let us know what we're missing!
