This New Summer Camp Offers Quality Time for Grandparents & Grandchildren in National Parks

Being outdoors and engaging kids in learning about the natural world is a stimulating alternative to a smartphone screen. Many grandparents are eager to spend one-on-one time with their grandchildren and share fond memories of  experiences from their own childhoods or trips with their children years ago. We recommend: Veranos con los abuelos: Cómo las […]

Abuelos’ Summer Camp

Here’s the scene.. The camp director marched out to the playground yelling my name.  Huffing and mumbling under her breath, she grabbed me by the arm and dragged me inside the lunch room.  Lunch had long been over and all of the tables were empty.  Except, there was one person still there staring at the […]

Building Bonds through Tween Cuisine

I have a special place in my heart for all things Abuelos and for allowing children to learn, grow and respect the elders in their lives.

Tween Trick-Or-Treating Alone – Ha!

Want to hear something absolutely hilarious?  So funny that it gave us all a good laugh and I still chuckle thinking about it.  Our tweens have asked us if they could go trick-or-treating alone this year!  As our amiga Bohemian Babushka would say, “Ju so foni!” Cristy, my sister and I had a good laugh […]

Tweens Fall trip to Disney Parks

Celebrating a 10th Birthday with Travel & Style – Day 1

Tenth birthday parties are a big deal!  They have completed an entire decade of learning, growing and succeeding . Oh, and let’s not forget that we parents deserve a big pat on the back too (preferably that is followed by a glass of champagne).  We’ve spent 10 years doing a lot of work ourselves.  It […]

TWEEN BIRTHDAYS- Part Dos

‘To Party or NOT to Party?” – that WAS the pregunta! Part II- We did it! How it went and what we learned So much for the ‘gringo’ being the sensible one! My husband- a.k.a. ‘el gringo’ as his all-Latino friends call him for growing up in South Florida’s Hialeah community- enjoyed the super fiesta […]

Entertaining Tweens on Thanksgiving

By Katherine Doble-Cannata, Co-Publisher “We’re boreddddddd!” – the most annoying statement uttered from my kid’s mouths and it’s even more annoying on Thanksgiving.  Do they expect me to stop baking pies, mashing potatoes and casseroling the casserole to be their personal entertainer?  After all they have bedrooms stuffed with toys, a huge backyard and plenty […]
