Creekside at Beaver Creek, Colorado: Book by opening day and save up to 30%!

Need a vacation?  Want a spectacular view?

Vacationers looking to leave everyday life behind and enjoy remarkable skiing and the grandeur of a modern alpine ski resort should head to Beaver Creek, Colorado.


Creekside at Beaver Creek is a luxury ski-in/ski-out property located within the heart of Beaver Creek village. Nestled right up against the bubbling Beaver Creek, guests are steps away from world-class restaurants, shopping, and entertainment. In the morning, you can ski right to the lifts and access nearly 1,900 acres of skiable terrain including immaculately groomed green cruisers to steep powder-filled Aspen groves and chutes. At the end of the day, after a relaxing dip in the hot tub, unwind in a comfortable two or three bedroom condominium, elegantly decorated to make oneself at home.



Whether you are visiting Colorado to ski/snowboard or just take in the majestic beauty of the Rocky Mountains, you’ll find your stay at Creekside at Beaver Creek a memorable one.

Pittsburgh: Buy one admission get the 2nd half off at Fun Slides Carpet SkatePark


Fun Slides Skatepark & Party Center  in Greensburg offers super cool unique birthday party and family fun!


For years, kids all over the country have asked us to create a really cool space where they can use our Fun Slides Carpet Skates on ramps, jumps and grind rails… and our 12,000 sq. ft Fun Slides Carpet Skatepark is it! (the blacklight atmosphere just makes it even more cool!)A safer yet thrilling alternative to skate boarding, inline and ice skating, carpet skating is fun for all ages (typically age 4 and up). Unlike other sports that take lots of practice, carpet skating takes only minutes until you are confidently sliding around.

Check out this awesome video HERE!

I can’t wait to take my kids here. I don’t know who is more excited about this trip….me or them!

 You will be the coolest parent when you come with your kids to Fun Slides Park! I sure I hope I get the label from my kids after I take them! Sure, you could just sign their waiver and drop them off, but maybe you’d like to stay. Whether you plan to sit in our ‘free WiFi’ viewing lounge and watch or you’re courageous enough to skate too, you will be cool…because you came as a family.


Carpet Skating is safer than most other skating sports because the skating surfaces are carpeted. It takes just minutes to learn and because it is so easy to be taught, it is a terrific confidence builder. We have witnessed over and over the most awkward of kids feel like an accomplished skater in minutes! And it burns lots of calories! You might appreciate the exercise value but your kids just love to slide and grind…in a safer, softer alternative to ice or concrete.


Yes carpet skating can get extreme but you can also simply walk while wearing Fun Slides…you only slide if you want to. The ‘gripper grooves’ on the bottom provide traction so you can actually run wearing them. Don’t worry, we’re happy to give lessons…each new skater is assigned a skate instructor to work with them until they feel comfortable to skate on their own.

Check out this SPECIAL OFFER for my readers: Buy one admission at $10 get second admission half off. And $20 off a Birthday Party Package or Private Group Event (must mention when booking). CLICK HERE

Three Disney Vacation Packages to Let Your Dreams Come True


Do you ever look back on old family photos and just reminisce? I do that often and my oldest is only 8.

af4488963c3a11e3baac22000a1fbda6_8As I looked back through old photos, I noticed a very common trend that can be found not only in my own home, but all across our country.  Our children have let Disney into their hearts, their imagination and their lives.  Below are only a few instances in which Disney has been a part of my children’s lives whether it was a gift, a craft, clothing, playing dress up, having a Minnie themed birthday cake, enjoying a movie or spending time coloring.


Disney has been so influential that my oldest even made an impromptu craft below. She re-created the rose from Beauty and the Beast. I was simply amazed at her imagination and then realized that she has been influenced by the fantasy, the beauty and Continue reading…
