Our Annual Snowball Fight...In the Summer!


For the past three, maybe even four years, I have saved snow from the winter so the kids could have snowball fights in the summer.

The kids love it! It makes for a fun, spontaneous summer activity and it's free, of course.

And let's be honest; it's really the only time I love snow. That, and Christmas of course. But other than that, I'm a sunshine and warm weather kind of girl.

Around February every year (I actually make myself a reminder on my Outlook Calendar so I don't forget!), I tell the kids to grab a couple of gallon sized freezer bags and fill them with snow. We add them to the deep freezer and pull them out several months later when it's a piping hot day. And while it's not powdery like freshly fallen snow, it's pretty good and gets the job done. :)

Enjoy the pictures!

Road Trip to the Shores of Lake Michigan


We just completed our first family vacation ever and wow, it was just what we needed. When we first began talking about taking a trip with our little family I knew that wherever we went I wanted there to be water. And lots of it.

Since we're from the North, it was much more economical for us to spend our vacation at one of the Great Lakes rather than taking a trip to the ocean so we chose the shores of Lake Michigan as our destination.

Rhubarb Crisp



I always thought I didn't care for Rhubarb Crisp...until I tried this recipe from a friend and it won me over. Granted, it does have a lot of sugar in it so that could be why I love it so much. But, considering I don't make it too often, it's a nice summer treat to have just when the rhubarb is ripe for picking.

We grow our own rhubarb so we always have plenty of it to not only make Rhubarb Crisp but also a yummy apple/rhubarb sauce that my husband came up with. It is AMAZING!

Here is our favorite Rhubarb Crisp recipe!

Homemade Ready Made Meals for Your Vacation Destination



Any Mom knows that planning a vacation requires a LOT of work. We often feel like we need that vacation even more just from getting ready for it! It’s normal to want some time to relax once you and your family arrive at your destination. However, unless you plan to eat out for all of your meals, you’re still going to need to feed your tribe.

Our family recently went on vacation and I’m sharing with you at My Joy Filled Life about the meals and food prep ideas that I did to take a little off my plate so to speak while we were there. 


Come see what meals worked for us!
