The Best Early Season Snow in the East at Stratton

December 21, 2013

How wonderful that the first weekend of December we found the best early season snow in the East at Stratton. Our family will always have special memories of first tracks down the hill followed by cocoa and waffles at the Waffle cabin.  Now, skiing the first snow of the season ranks the top of our list of holiday traditions. Stratton is known for its wide variety of terrain that offers something for every skill level.  Several runs are marked specifically for families allowing parents the room to teach their children safe skiing practices. Early season is the perfect time to […]

Steve Nash: A True Role Model For Our Kids

July 3, 2013

Steve Nash of the LA Lakers is a true role model for our kids because not only is he a talented but humble player from Canada, but he gives back through his foundation to promote healthy living for underserved children. We need more Professional Athlete Role Models: Watching professional sports with our children and discussing the traits of successful athletes provides teaching moments for key life lessons such as good sportsmanship and citizenship.  Lately, we have to avoid watching some of our favorite sports because of the twenty questions the kids ask about the life styles of certain athletes. So […]

Geocaching: a Tech Family Friendly Sport

June 3, 2013

Geocaching in Jones State Forest, The Woodlands, Texas   Our kids really enjoy adventure movies like National Treasure with Nicholas Cage, so when friends introduced us to Geocaching they were thrilled. Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Moreover, Geocaching  is the perfect sport to play with the whole family on a beautiful weekend. Parents like Geocaching because it gets the family out of the house and unplugged from their individual technology.  The children like it because they can “keep” something from each treasure (cache) found and leave something of theirs behind for the next person. The above […]

June 27, 2012

Building upon yesterday’s blog about more women watching professional sports than ever before, another interesting sport that we find our female friends watching is the World Wrestling Enterprises (WWE).  They love watching the sport with their tween and teen boys. These women realize that the WWE provides family friendly PG entertainment while also presenting great opportunities to bond with their boys. You can catch the sport twice a week with Friday Night SmackDown and Monday Night Raw. Watching sports has been a great way for Dads to bond with their sons during the teen years when they are no longer cool. So […]

Insight for Pro-Sports Advertisers: More women are watching than ever

English: Basketball player LeBron James during...

We have really enjoyed all the major league sports playoffs this June.  The  Stanley cup became rowdy and exciting with the Rangers having a brief run in the playoffs.  Then, the NBA Playoffs really “heated up” and was fascinating to watch (pun intended). We loved how the Celtics took it to a lucky game 7 but then lost to the Heat.   LeBron James finally delivered the championship in five games this past week.  Now, we are into baseball season and can’t wait to see the Atlanta Braves live on this Friday Night. We are finding more and more women […]

Revolutionary Insight: is shoppping or consumption a mom addiction?

May 22, 2012

Every year we go away on relaxing girls’ weekend with an extraordinary group of women. This year two of the women started an experiment that I found fascinating. They decided not to purchase anything for themselves for a whole year except an occasional pair of shoes (or when their Under Armour‘s wear out). Their experiment comes from their belief that we have become a nation of consumption. These women question do we really need all the things we have? Moreover, what type of lesson are we teaching our children through constant consumerism. Like the song the children’s artist Raffi sings […]
