As a kid, I remember being completely mesmerized with all of my mom’s lotions and potions. The smells, the textures, the colors. It all seemed so much fun. Now, as a mom myself, it’s fun to see how my kids are similarly interested in all of the things that sit on my vanity tray. At […]

So, we made it a tradition (out of necessity to keep our wits) to find a tropical paradise where the […]

We have decided that counting is for the birds this year and want to celebrate the Great Backyard Bird Count by playing fun and active outdoor games to learn about bird behavior. Join Blue Jay staff for a rollicking good time! Many games and activities will be best suited for ages 5 and up, though we will have some fun things especially for the wee ones. FWS participants under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. This particular FWS is free in honor of the Great Backyard Bird Count. All family members attending the program must be registered.

It can be overwhelming. Who […]
