In Review: Reilly's Fall Festival

Mom Nannette was able to take her family out to Reilly's Summer Seat Farm Fall Festival and check it out for us - here is her review:
During the summer our family enjoys picking berries at Reilly’s Summer Seat Farm, but today we experienced Reilly’s Harvest Festival for the first time. My kids were excited, though a little nervous to get on the Hayride to the pumpkin fields. Once the wagon got going at a gentle pace, they were fine. The Hayride took us on a tour of the farm past the berry fields and through the woods.
We really enjoyed exploring the pumpkin field looking for the biggest, smallest, and most unique pumpkins we could find. Then the Hayride took us on to the other fun activities. Though there were many visitors at the farm, it did not feel crowded at all. The games and activities were spread out enough to make it a very enjoyable experience.
The map of the Harvest Festival activities and the staff were extremely helpful as we navigated from Spooky Hollow to the Kids’ Kountry Store and then up to the Crow’s Nest and around to the Cornstock Maze. We loved the Candy Land themed corn stock maze so much that we went through twice. It was perfect for young explorers. The kids also enjoyed the Peddle Go-carts, the petting zoo, and the Balloon Typhoon.
The carnival type games and prizes were also a big hit with the kids. Who doesn’t like a good ball toss and ducky pond? A campfire was set up for roasting marshmallows, but other refreshments were also available for purchase.
We enjoyed several hours of activities and did not even experience it all. This is a great Festival for young children and the young at heart!
Thanks, Nannette, for your great review of such a fun Pittsburgh family tradition!

The magic tool for every parent!

When my firstborn turned 2 and went through a phase where he decided 6am was an acceptable time to get up, I knew I had to have some backup! After a plea to friends for help and an internet search I found the perfect gadget.
It's tricky being little and waking up and having no concept of time. I totally understand that. So when mommy or daddy can set your clock to "turn green" and let you know you can get up or you should go back to sleep, seriously, it's like magic!  While I wasn't too concerned about him learning to tell time, I did think that might be a handy feature when he was older, it also has a regular alarm clock so he could use this for a long time! At 4 1/2, he still uses it every day (it now doubles as a night light for him as well, extra bonus!) I am so glad we found this amazing product by American Innovative.
Recently my 2 1/2 year old daughter started hitting that "I might be giving up my nap" phase (noooooo!) So back to these products I went where I found a 2nd gadget that fit the need for her more specifically.
So there are 2 features of this one that I love for her - she has never been a night-light girl and this one goes completely dark. Although it can be used as a night-light if set that way. (The first one always has the face glow on the clock). So it would depend on your child for which one would work best. But best of all this one has...ding! ding! ding! Built-In Nap Timer. OK to Wake! includes a special built-in nap timer. Press a button to nap for up to 24 hours (fully customizable) without the other clock settings. And, best of all, the nap timer can conclude with the OK To Wake! light, the gradual-wake tone or both!
The only thing I wish were different is that this one only runs on batteries.  Although, it makes it easily portable, we parents already spend way too much on batteries, right? (The Teach Me Time Clock does include a cord or it can use batteries.)
But both of these clocks have been great sanity savers for us and I pass on the info if it might help any other parents out there!
Best of all, American Innovative is offering 15% off purchases for any of their items!!

Shipping is a flat rate of $5 direct from their site.
