Lightlife Smart Dogs Summer Cooking

100 degree days have hit! The dog days of summer are officially here. Staying cool has been top priority with the kids. We take daily trips to the pool, park ourselves by the air conditioner or run through the sprinklers. This is the first summer in several years that I’ve been able to stay at […]

Kids Chocolate Trail Mix

Delicious kids chocolate trail mix is perfect for long car rides, school lunches or hikes!  Ten hours there. Ten hours back.
