GIVEAWAY: Potty Time DVD + CD! (US) -CLOSED-

Review by Veronica Winner

There are a few things that my son (age 2.5) absolutely loves and can't get enough of.  When it comes to television, one of his favorites is Signing Time. I lived with a deaf roommate for three years in college and learned  ASL. It became a language I loved - and was happy to find out about Potty Time once I had my baby boy.

I have always loved Rachel Coleman's family story. Rachel is the co-creator of Signing Time and was very much involved in the music world singing and playing guitar in a folk rock band.

Utah's Clear the Air Challenge!

Utah has started a program where we can all work together to help out the air quality of our fine state.  The Utah Clear the Air Challenge runs from August 1st to the 31st and it's an opportunity to set goals and see how we can improve.

We are fortunate to live close to most of the places we frequent so we get out and walk quite a bit.  Also since joining this challenge I've been more aware of idling and have tried to carpool when possible.   I'm not the best, but I'm trying :):)

Here's what you do:
-Register at ClearTheAirChallenge.org
-Fill out your info and set goals
-Track your progress

There is a tracking system with Travelwise and it helps us see how we can drive less and smarter.  When you utilize this program and meet your weekly trip goals, you will also be entered to win some great prizes!  Last week someone won a bike!!  You can also Like Clear the Air on Facebook to keep up with the program and win some more! :)

Charlotte's 1st Birthday Party - {DIY} Pool Party
by Cristen at http://thenaptimereviewer.blogspot.com

Here are a few projects from my daughters 1st Birthday Party!

Many of the ideas came from Pinterest -






The Smash Cake
$4 smash cake from the Target BakeryI bought a #1birthday candle at the Dollar Tree.  I used some Swarovski crystals to decorate it a little bit and some paint to add some more color to the edges.  A little trick I learned is to shove a toothpick about halfway into the bottom of the candle to get it to stand better in the cake. 




   Dip rim of cup in light corn syrup follow by the sprinklesI cut paper straws (from Spritz by Target) in half to make them go further and fit better in cups
 *When I think "kid's birthday" I can't help but think of TREATS.  Lots and lots of Treats.  We had to have a candy bar.  We offered marshmallow sticks, rock candy, candy bracelets, bubble gum, sour patch kids, mini gummy worms, life savers, lollipops and tropical Mike …
