Teaching Kids About Culture

The average baby can lift their head briefly at 1 month old. They start babbling at 4 months. They start to walk around the age of 1. These moments go by so quickly that sometimes we lose track of all the time that has passed. Little Bear is almost 3 and a half and has so much spunk in him.

There were countless fun activities, an awesome kid’s adventure zone, and too many great and innovative products to even start to list. We left weighed down with product that we were excited to try out, and we were honestly not disappointed by any of the new products we tried out. Continue reading
