Boston-area kids’ performer Stacey Peasley has just released her debut album, Together. Nickelodeon ParentsConnect 2010 parent’s pick award winner for best party entertainer, Stacey has a knack for speaking directly to kids with her catchy tunes and fun lyrics.
While I like the song “Trouble” the best (it describes my little guy a little too well), he prefers the tune “Soapy Bubbles”. The whole CD is filled with songs that are entertaining for moms and kids alike – there’s nothing too sugary on this CD! It’s currently on an endless loop in my car – both of my kids are always requesting that I play it.
Disclosure: I received a copy of Stacey Peasley’s CD for review.
On Friday, I had the opportunity to check out The Big Apple Circus, which is here in Boston for one more week! It’s definitely worth seeing – read my review of the Big Apple Circus on Mom’s Favorite Stuff if you want to learn more.
Now that the weather is getting warmer, some of our local family farms are opening.
Tsougas Family Farm opens in June for strawberry picking. I’ll have more specific details, along with other strawberry picking venues, in June.
Davis’ Farmland is already open 7 days a week, weather permitting. Spraypads open in June, and apple picking starts in September.
Know of any other seasonal farms that are opening soon? Let me know!
