Best Places to Take Dad on Father’s Day in Victoria – Amory’s Top Five

If there’s one man in this world you should respect, it would be your father. If you don’t respect him, well, hey, that’s your business. If you’re interested in getting on his good side come this Father’s Day, however, I’ve got a few suggestions for you that could help you out in that department at the very least.

Face it, dads get some of the crappiest jobs in the world when it comes to raising kids. That gross thing you did to make a gross mess when you were five? He cleaned it up. That time you decided to try and cut your own hair when you were seven? He was the one who had to either fix it or find a barber that wouldn’t laugh at you while he fixed it so as to not bruise your fragile little seven –year-old ego. That cat you said you’d love forever and clean up after always? He’s the one who had to clean up the gross hairballs and feed after you locked it in the closet and said it had run away.

Face it, your dad’s been there this whole time for you. Why not take a little time this Father’s Day and make his month just a little bit better by showing him how much you love him.

Schock has teamed with the magazine, who naturally dubbed him "America's Fittest Congressman," on its Fit for Life Summer Challenge, a campaign designed to help Americans lose weight and get in shape by Labor Day.

Mom and The Easter Bunny

My very practical 5 year old son thinks that the story of the Easter bunny is utterly ridiculous. He doesn’t buy the whole "bunny-bringing-candy-filled-eggs" thing at all.

He’s a very logical little boy and he informed me that there was no way a bunny lays eggs and then hides them for little children to find. His exact words were, “Mom, bunnies aren’t interested in eggs or kids. They are worried about carrots!”

Tyler then informed me that he thinks the eggs come from my closet because he’s pretty sure he saw some there! Oops! I guess Mom needs to find a better place to hide them!

Easter Eggs and Easter Traditions

Easter is almost here. I can’t wait to have all the kids over hunting for eggs and my favorite part the confetti eggs. When I was a little girl, we used to always find the perfect batch of wildflowers and take pictures in them with our baskets and Easter Bunnies. My twin sister Kelly enjoys when our grandma fills Easter Eggs with money which sometimes are dollar bills in them to hunt. It’s quite a scene to see us big grandkids hunt eggs but boy, is it fun. Families all have different traditions for Easter. Here are a few traditions people have.
