Is It Too Late to Throw the Race to Independence?

 

Momservation: The only thing that can make a mother miss changing diapers is standing eye to eye with her teenager.

Weekly Challenge: Where is your Mojo?

 

Where's your MOJO?   This week is all about excuses. 

We all have them. The reasons we give ourselves, and others, for not doing what we know is best, or what we promised ourselves or others we'd do.

Historic River Cruise on the Capitol Hornblower in Old Sacramento

Historic River Cruise on the Capitol Hornblower in Old Sacramento

Hornblower Cruises and Events, located in Old Sacramento, provides a one hour Sacramento Historic River Cruise aboard the Capitol Hornblower for $20 per person. Though I’ve lived in Sacramento since 1989, I only just recently experienced the Capitol Hornblower with my son (age 4) for the first time. Our Historic River Cruise was a fun and educational way to spend the afternoon. I found myself wondering why it had taken me so long to enjoy this activity and what else might be lurking in Sacramento for me to enjoy? One things for sure, since becoming a parent, I see new and exciting things to discover almost everywhere I look. What a blessing children are in that they allow us to see the world through their eyes!

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

A one-hour narrated cruise from the talented First Officer, he’s both funny and engaging.
