Let the holiday shopping begin! Black Friday is this week and here’s a few things you should keep an eye out for.
Nerf is the only safe and fun way to wage war on your friends, family…and co-workers.
I don’t exactly remember when I quit playing outside…oh wait, that’s right, when I got my Nintendo…but even then I remember long summer days outside with friends running all over the neighborhood having water balloon fights, playing Wiffle ball, roller blading and once the sun went down, it was night tag. All of these games [...]
Not long ago I found myself at my Norwegian professor’s house for a barbeque with other Norwegian students (ja, jeg kan snakke norsk, er det bra?), and during said barbeque the weather was just nice enough to make full use of his backyard for some bocce ball. I had never played, but apparently I was [...]
Kids, and some adults, can’t resist the chance to do some dangerous tricks on a patch of asphalt. As a matter of fact, give a twelve-year-old boy a 5×5 patch of concrete, and any wheel, and they will find a way to invent a new X-game. I first saw a wave style skateboard in Walmart, [...]

I’ve been hung up on video games a lot lately, and I apologize for that. There’s just been an abundance of games getting released in such a short time frame. Plus, it sounds as if half the US has been snowed in for a while. To make up for all this sitting around in front [...]
Winter is fast approaching, and if you’ve been paying attention you may have noticed that the temperature outside has dropped to something near “Why can’t I feel my feet?” levels. That can only mean one thing: Snow will be here soon. That also means that your kids (and hopefully yourself) will be outside playing in [...]
