Family, Fun and Tennis – #ServingFreedom

While all opinions found in this post are my own, I was provided with tickets courtesy of the Philadelphia Freedoms and Comcast.

Summer is a great time for families to get together and have outdoor fun. One way to have family fun outdoors is with sports. Tennis is a great sport for families to play together. Because tennis can be played in singles or doubles matches, many family members can play at one time. In addition, tennis is an exciting sport to watch.

The Philadelphia Freedoms and Comcast have an exciting line up of tennis matches scheduled through July 23rd. Families are about to have a great few weeks thanks to Comcast and the Philadelphia Freedoms. Tennis is coming to the Philadelphia area at the Villanova Pavilion.

Traveling with Kids – Bring Their Good Stuff #ColorofInfluence


#colorofinfluence travel with children



It is fantastic to travel with your kids and to survive the experience with a smile. Each summer children finish school for the year and parents travel for family vacations. For some families the travel is a glorious experience, for others it is a horrible experience that no one ever wants to repeat. This post will share some ideas on how to make your travel less onerous.

I am the mother of four children ages 18, 11, 7 and 7. In addition I am work at home mom with a small business that needs my attention every day even during vacation. The biggest trick I ever learned for having a good travel experience with my children is to treat their play, the way I treat my job. In other words, bring the equipment needed to get the job done.

When our family drives on vacation my husband does all the driving. That means the rest of us are passengers and need something to do to pass the time. Of course you need to pack the clothes, toiletries, first aid kit and things of that nature. Those things are important, but for traveling with your kids, they are not the most important. When traveling with your kids, their fun stuff is the most important. So be sure to pack their tablets, hand-held video games, e-readers, chargers and rechargeable batteries. Be sure to have an emergency power charger like for your cell phone for each child.
