Spring Break Cocktails with a Twist

Spring Break Cocktails with a Twist

Ahhh Spring break: drinks in hand, beach sand between our toes, a teeny swim suit on. Oh wait, that was Spring Break, pre-kids. Now-a-days it’s sprinkler time, noodle crafts, and play dates, but just because we have babies now doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy a warm spring evening cocktail! For this Spring Break, we have taken three classic drinks: the cosmopolitan, a bloody mary and the margarita and changed them up a bit. We have taken some of our favorite mixers and liquors and combined them with a twist to each drink and made them unique, and more suited for spring break! So after the kids are in bed, try one of these unique drinks and just imagine you are on the beach instead of in your backyard.

How to Get Your Toddler to Sit Still and Look at the Camera

Do you have an adorable toddler you’d love to photograph, but who keeps running away from you every time you pull out your camera? You’re not alone!

Toddlers are some of our favorite groups of people to photograph. These tiny humans are so cute and always seem to be doing something worthy of being captured on “film.” Unfortunately, these brilliant people have a nasty reputation of running away when they see a camera, or jumping up from their seat just as you’ve asked them to sit down, or looking anywhere BUT into the camera when you’re most ready to click the shutter.

Today’s tips may not prevent your child from running away at the sight of a camera, but with any luck, they may just stay still long enough to capture a smile. Without further ado, we present to you our top five tips for getting your toddler to sit still and look at the camera.

Baby Monitor Guide: Summer Infant Baby Zoom WiFi Video Monitor & Internet Viewing System

Summer Infant Baby Zoom WiFi Video Monitor

If you’re in the market for a baby monitor, you may be wondering if it’s really necessary to have a video monitor, especially one that can connect to your smartphone, tablet or computer. We certainly felt that way when we were first faced with the idea of getting a monitor for our babies. Wouldn’t it be enough to just hear them when they cried?

In the beginning, it may be enough to just hear your child, but Summer Infant realizes that the need for a baby monitor doesn’t end just because your child moves out of their crib. In fact, your needs for a monitor will only increase as your child gets older. The award-winning Baby Zoom WiFi video monitor and internet viewing system, as seen on the Ellen Show, enables in-home, continuous monitoring or remote viewing on digital devices. It’s everything you’d want from a baby video monitor and more. Read on to discover why we’re adding this monitor to our list of must-haves!
