Last Minute Valentine's Day Celebrations


It's the final countdown to Valentine's Day. With just one day left to the day of love and romance, sweethearts may be stumbling to find a way to mark the day.

Valentine's Day celebrations don't have to be elaborate or expensive. A simple gesture, an expression of gratitude or a symbol of love can mark the day with profound joy. Here are a few ways to make this Valentine's Day special.

1. Valentine's Day Breakfast: While breakfast in bed may be difficult on a work or school day, Valentine's Day breakfast can be the perfect start to the day. Color the breakfast with some red treats. A bowl of strawberries, maybe with a drizzle of chocolate, brings the color of love to the day's start. Or, a waffle with a red fruit drizzle can add a spark of romance. Basically, showing your loved ones that you care about the start of the day, is a great way to kick off the Valentine's Day celebrations.

2. Sneak the kids a lunch surprise: Make sure to add a little treat to the kids' lunch boxes. Maybe the class will share Valentines, but most kids would love a treat from mom in their lunch. A piece of candy or maybe a homemade brownie can bring a smile to their day.

3. Do something unexpected: Flowers, candy and jewelry can be popular Valentine's Day gifts. But, what about a gift that's out of the box. Maybe give your loved one a special experience for Valentine's Day. A cooking class for the foodie, a helicopter ride, or even a surfing lesson could show that you pay attention to what he/she likes.

4. Create your own card: By now, the Hallmark aisle can be picked over. What about making your own Valentine's Day card. You don't have to be an artist or a poet. A simple few words from the heart or a drawing from the kids can bring any person to an emotional wreck (in a good way).

If you celebration Valentine's Day, don't stress about the stuff. Celebrate with those you love and the experience will always be a memorable one filled with love.

Moto Racer 4, High Speed Motorbike Racing For Families



For many people, kids and adults, video games offer a respite from the drudgery of daily life. Escaping into the video game realm allows players to forget about the bad test score, the angry bosses and the looming laundry. Since both young and old can enjoy gaming, finding a video game that appeals to the whole family is beneficial. The new Moto Racer 4 offers young, old and everyone in between the chance to race to the finish line. 

Released on January 24, Moto Racer 4 is available for download in Xbox One and PS4 formats. The game retails for approximately $39.99. 


The new Moto Racer 4 brings back a popular motorbike racing game series. Since most people won’t be able to race a real motorbike, this game hopes to bring the thrill and excitement to the gaming world. From powerful road bikes to agile dirt bikes, players can test their racing ability in various environments.

While this game offers both single and multi-player options, the key to success is risk versus reward. Moto Racer 4 rewards players for taking big risks. For accomplishing big jumps, higher speeds and insane moves, the player received more points. These points can be used for customization. While the jump may seem impossible (and in real life never attainable), repetition and skill bring reap the ultimate rewards in Moto Racer 4. 

Moto Racer 4 offers both a single player and a multi-player option. Even though players aren’t seated on simulated motorbikes like in an arcade, the detailed graphics and side by side play in the multi-player option create a racing atmosphere. From better turns for racing position to faster speed to attain longer jumps, players can feel immersed into the racing environment even while sitting on the couch. 

Recently, my family had the opportunity to play the Moto Racer 4 game. While I personally am not as adept at playing video games as my children, I found the game relatively easy to play. Personally, I like the individual challenge games, like the time trial. 

For the kids, the boys loved the high speed crashes and extreme thrills of the game. Aerial maneuvers, attaining 185 miles per hour, and the racing challenges were the kids’ favorites. The boys definitely wanted more of the need for speed. 

For fans of racing games, the new Moto Racer 4 is a good addition to the family’s gaming library. It offers a good alternative to car racing games. The video game is rated E for everyone. The game can be purchased on Amazon or downloaded directly from the video game platforms.

Baby Gifts, what's on your list?

Having a baby is an exciting time. For first time parents, every experience is new. Some events are filled with joyous emotions while others can bring some anxiety. Still, one of the most fun things to do is shop for baby gifts.

Browsing baby gifts can be fun. From the local stores to baby gifts Sydney, parents have so many options for their newest family member. While the variety and choices are amazing, sometimes this list of wants needs to be paired down to what parents really need.

Here are a few thoughts on needs (small items- not the big ticket items).

1. Clothes sizes 6 months and older: While the cute little baby clothes can make you ooh and ahh, those little clothes are quickly put away into the drawer. Babies grow fast. The bigger sizes are often more useful because they are used for more months.

2. Plain white towel: Yes, all those cute bibs and cloths are great for pictures. But, kids are messy. Plain, white towels can be washed over and over. Plus, usually they are a little less expensive. So when your child has a pea or butternut squash mess, you don't feel bad about throwing that cheap white towel directly in the trash.

3. Don't over buy: One trip to a baby store or baby website can be a shoppers dream. Everything is fun and new. But, why buy everything and spend too much? Parents will be spending lots of money on a variety of things. Diapers to formula can drain a bank. Don't spend too much on the other wants. It's better to have a bigger savings account than a bigger diaper bag.
