Baseball: How To Play The Game: The Official Playing & Coaching Manual of Major League Baseball [Amazon] by Pete Williams.

I had the great pleasure of doing a quick interview with Amy Tara Koch, the author of Bump It Up, trend reporter to NBC, contributer to SELF, New York Times, People’s Mom and Baby, Travel & Leisure, and many others – yah she’s totally an expert on all things style and travel.
Admittedly the first line about I’m following you is awkward but its about Twitter – lol…
We went over some basics of traveling with expecting a baby, traveling with kids of all ages, and tips for what to bring on the plane.
Of course the age old question how do you defuse the angry mob on the plane when your More >
Once you’re kids get old enough to say they want to walk more… instead of getting into the stroller you start to look for options for them standing while you’re pushing like a roller board, but this is the a great option that allows you to not only push them along but also unhook the freerider to put it into stroller mode.
I really like how this video shows the dad skateboarding while the kiddo is using the freerider.
The best burgers in New York City in my opinion are Shake Shack – its as if god himself opened it and declared it AWESOME! While I didnt steal this recipe from Shake Shack – I’m told by many this is as close as your going to get it without waiting on an hour and half line on a day like today! I did however lift this recipe from American’s test kitchen (so blame them if its not 100% and shake shack you can blame them too if everyone starts cooking this at home!)
Makes 4 burgers

One thing that we’ve made progress on in this world is going green. It’s the buzz terms of the last five years. You’ve heard it from Oprah to the nightly news and unless you’ve got a kid or a pet most likely you’re still cleaning your house/apartment with harsh stuff – and believe sometimes that’s the only thing that will get the job done – but nowadays there is other options…. We’ve been using a combo of bother Dapple and Seven Generation products in our home since Kiddo was born.
A little while ago during Spring Cleaning my wife was stressed with childcare, work, and everything else More >

I’m a man (yup, still a card carrying member) and I can tell you we’re pretty simple when it comes to gifts. The simple things like bacon and beer would be enough to make any man happy. This post takes it one step further, we have some simple gifts, some thoughtful gifts, some heartless electronic gifts they may have wanted and always bring a smile to any guys face.
The saying the way to a guys heart is though is stomach isn’t far off, so taking him out for a nice meal or cooking dinner for him (making it kind of special) is a good way to go.
The simple clothing solution is a nice More >
