Spring Break 2014 - Living it Up in Mayakoba

Posted By Rebecca Gruber on Jun 4, 2014 at 11:51PM

Better late than never? For Spring Break, we headed to Mexico and found a little slice of heaven at the Fairmont Mayakoba, located just outside of Playa Del Carmen. The beaches were beautiful, the weather was perfect, the hotel was ideal — we really couldn't ask for anything more. We even decided to be a bit adventurous, renting a car from the hotel and driving down to Tulum (about 45 minutes away) for a morning of Mayan culture and one of the best, most scenic lunches of our lives — seriously, if you're ever there, you must go to Posada Margherita for the freshest, most delicious Italian lunch with a view to die for!

A Dino-rific Day

Posted By Rebecca Gruber on Feb 10, 2014 at 6:10PM
In case you didn't know, I love dinosaurs — really love dinosaurs! So when our class started closing in on a class project and we started talking about dinosaurs, I knew I could convince a bunch of my friends to pick dinosaurs. Today, the five of us that are on the Dino team went to the Museum of Natural History to see the dinosaurs and sketch them. I led the way and showed everyone around. It may have been the best day of school - EVER!

Free to Be You and Me at the 2nd Grade Winter Concert

Posted By Rebecca Gruber on Feb 6, 2014 at 10:15AM

It's been six years since I took a Free to Be Under Three class (boy, those were the easy days!), but today I transported Mom right back there with our 2nd grade concert! We performed Marlo Thomas's famed theme song and put smiles on all of the grown ups' faces. Check it out!

Racers . . . Start Your Engines!

Posted By Rebecca Gruber on Jan 20, 2014 at 11:08PM

At last year's school auction, Mom and Dad bought tickets to an indoor go-kart place in Jersey City. We figured this was as good a weekend as any to test it out. Dad and I picked out our helmets, watched a little prep video, and headed to our respective tracks for some racing. Needless to say, we felt the need — the need for speed. And we loved it!


Are You Ready For Some Football?

Posted By Rebecca Gruber on Jan 20, 2014 at 10:38PM

'Cause I am! I kicked off the new year by joining a flag football team. Dad and I might have forgotten to mention to mom that it is an outdoor league — but playing in 25* temperatures is really the only way to do this right. Plus, when you're having this much fun, you don't notice when you can't feel your toes!

Oh, and yes, we fell a bit behind in posts last year. We promise to get them going again - and will fill in where we slipped last year in due time. Thanks!

So where do you go to wrap up a birthday celebration? Benihana, of course! Konichiwa!


Party Time at School

Posted By Rebecca Gruber on Jan 1, 2014 at 11:23PM

It's not a birthday celebration without cupcakes at school — but they're even better when Mommy and I make them ourselves. To top it off, we shared my favorite book with the class too. If you haven't read The Amazing Adventures of Bumblebee Boy, you really should. As a younger brother, it's one that I really enjoy!


A Soccer Dinosaur Party

Posted By Rebecca Gruber on Jan 1, 2014 at 11:02PM

What do you do when you love both soccer and dinosaurs? You join them together for one epic birthday party! On the day after my real birthday, we celebrated with all of my family and friends at a Super Soccer Stars party that culminated in a dinosaur cake cutting. It was pretty awesome if I do say so myself.
