This is my last Kids ‘R’ Ours blog. While I’ve really loved dragging my kids all over Westchester trying out various cool things to do, it’s time to slow down and catch our breath for ...
Big sigh. Another big sigh. The holidays are finally over. The frenzied rushing around is done. All is calm. NOT!
Wow! Talk about getting hammered with snow!
I usually write about all the cool stuff to do in Westchester, and this one is no different.
