4/1/11: Ultimate Blog Party! #UBP11

If you found my blog you found my blog through the Ultimate Blog Party 2011 hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom, WELCOME! I have recently started being active on Twitter and that is how I found this Blog Party.

I love to blog and have been doing it now for 3 years. Actually my first blog post was on April 28th, 2008 so I am coming up to my blogger anniversary soon. It started as a way to share pictures with family and friends and has grown to much more. I now have posted lots of helpful reviews on playspaces, museum, and shows using my Flip Video camera. In addition I have promoted Disney on Ice, The Ringling Brothers and Barnum Bailey Circus, and held a Disney in-home celebration which was awesome. I was able to help give back to the community by having people bring supplies for my daycare provider who had a house fire to rebuild her business. I also just got involved in promotions for KinderCare and are hoping to expand as much as I can.

We are a busy family with activities and fun things to do in and around the Boston area. My daughter dances, twirls baton, is on a Team for Gymnastics, and swims and my son plays Soccer (my husband coaches), swims, plays basketball, and ice skates. I am big in to scrapbooking, love to take pictures of the kids, cake decorate, and LOVE DISNEY!

I hope you will follow me and my adventures. Thanks!

Nice to meet you! I love Disney too though living in Canada means I don't get to go there nearly as much as I would like. I have a little guy named Evan too. :)

Hi!

Thanks for stopping by and saying hello!

You have such a cute family!

I'm starting to feel a little left out...I have no idea what my bloggy anniversary is, because I deleted my original blog and restarted a few years ago on a different host site. :-)

Happy UBP11-ing!
