Have Some Backyard Fun with Your Family and Earn a Badge from FamilyFun Magazine


Disney FamilyFun MagazineSummer is a great time to get outdoors with your family and enjoy the warm weather, but at times we can all get caught up in our daily activities and forget to seize the season.  It is no secret that I absolutely adore Disney FamilyFun magazine!

I have posted several of their family-friendly selections here on my blog and I wholeheartedly believe that there is no better publication on the market for parents and children.  Well, they've done it again by inspiring families to get outside and have some good old-fashioned fun with their new Badges of Fun series.  Keep reading to learn more about it and how you can earn your first one!

I'm a former 7th grade Science teacher turned stay-at-home mom that lives in Houston, Texas. I am married to my college sweetheart and have a beautiful daughter named Riley, who definitely keeps me on my toes! I am also involved in starting a small business which would both manufacture and sell an invention that I've patented, called Toothpaste 2 Go. I love interacting with my readers and hope to learn as much about you as you learn about me!
