  It's back!  Spruce St. Harbor Park, one of our very favorite Philadelphia summer pop-ups has opened for the summer!  It is - hands down - my very favorite place to take the family on a Friday or Saturday night. Ready to loosen that tie, Mike?       Mike and I can have a drink, the kids can...well.     wearing top:  Free People Buckley Tee (with this lace...
  Any longtime reader of this blog (or my instagram feed, @shanachristine) might have picked up on the fact that Raines, my oldest, is obsessed with WWII.  We don't really know where it came from.  He went from a train obsession to planes and then to....war.  WWII, specifically, with a special passion for the dogfights that happened in Pacific, and...
Ok.  I've been hunting and trying on and discarding and....anyway.  Here's where my head is.  And I even have a few (terribly informal) #dressingroomselfies to better illustrate what I'm thinking. // JavaScript is currently disabled in this browser.

If you are looking for something fun to do in Philly on a friday night with (or without) the kids, we highly recommend moseying on down to the Bluecross RiverRink.  It. Is. Amazing.  A total winter wonderland.   We were up for a little ice-skating, but I'd be lying if I said that the happy hour specials and brewery tastings...
  Every weekend day in December from 12-3PM, Frankford Hall morphs from a Philly beer hall to rocking kid-friendly party, complete with Santa, free food for the kids, and live music.  Since any kid party that includes beer is one Mike is willing to attend, off we went. Of course, Pax was terrified.     I don't know why I even bother pushing the whole take-a-picture-with-Santa...
  Franklin Square is one of our favorite places to take the kids - there's a decent playground, mini golf, and a gorgeous carousel.  And it's walking distance to some of our favorite Chinatown restaurants in Philly.  (Or try a burger at the Square - they're surprisingly good.) But for the holidays, Franklin Square has created some sort of holiday extravaganza that is simply...
  We spent a week in NYC last month - the whole fam.  Mike had a conference to attend, so myself and the boys tagged along. It was no hardship.     // JavaScript is currently disabled in this browser. Reactivate it to view this content. We rented an apartment near a park, and spent our days exploring, just the three of us.  I had...
  A few weeks ago, we headed down to Kelly drive to go for a little family walk.  And were greeted by this sight:    Oh.  Oh.  It was the Manyunk Bike Race, which is, apparentely, a big deal.  There was music, and beer, and a kiddie carnival.  They had some sort of zip-line thing for kids that dare-devil Raines was ALL...
Our move from Denver to Philadelphia was pretty heart-breaking.  I mean YES, it was our (Mike's) decision, nobody was forcing us (Mike)* to move, but still. We left so many good friends behind.  But I'll never forget our first foray into Philly.  We took the train and somehow ended up in Chinatown.  It was agonizingly hot, so humid you...
We had a seriously amazing weekend.  I had booked us for a family workshop at The Clay Studio after spotting their bumper sticker on the back of a car.  When I eventually looked them up, I couldn't believe the find.  The Clay Studio started as affordable studio space for students just out of art school...but has since expanded into...
