We had the pleasure of being invited to dine at the Shake Shack in Downtown Summerlin. Steak Shack has amazing decor and an at home feel. There is ample seating. Inside I found that there were multiple televisions each featuring different programming. You have the option of dining inside or outside. The staff is extremely kind and we received excellent service. We enjoyed cheese burgers, crinkle cut fries and lemonade! For those who do not eat meat there are also vegetarian options available.
The best part of our visit was being able to have the Shackenstein before it's official launch. It will debut on October 24th- Sunday the 30th. It is a must have Halloween treat! It is a mixture of Vanilla Custard, marshmallows, and chocolate cake. It is a very fun green color-my kids were excited and they thought that it tasted great!
On the 31st the Shake Shack will debut the Pumpkin Pie Shake. My experience here was absolutely perfect from the atmosphere to the amazing customer service and the fabulous food! We will definitely be making a return trip!
A very big thank you to the Shake Shack for having us!

They say life is a highway. I'd compare mine to a roller-coaster ride. Never the less, I am thankful. Thankful to be a Mama of two I birthed and two amazing bonus kids. We have a blended family and share 3 out of 4 of the kids. We do the best we can to fit it all in. This year our kids are 4, 6, 9 and 13.
Currently, we reside in Las Vegas but soon we will be making a big move to the Sunshine State. 9 will be moving to California with her mom and we will be moving to be closer to 13. My husband is torn to have children on opposite coasts. We will make the best of it as we always do and will have many beach days in our future. My life now consists of packing our home and looking for a place to live. I am throwing things away and donating things at an alarming rate. In between packing and cleaning, I am determined to make sure 4 knows all his letters. His sister was so much easier and more interested at his age. He just isn't interested- no matter how exciting I try to make it.
I recently returned to work but found myself at home again. With 4 and 6 being so small, it is very difficult to manage drop offs, pick ups, dinner, home work, and overcoming mommy guilt. There are only a few hours in a day that I could actually spend with them. For the time being the benefits of me being employed outweighed the benefits of me being home. Transitioning back into the house has been an adjustment. I miss my work friends and having quiet lunches alone but I am very excited for all the snuggles and kisses that I have here at home.
On top of all of that, we are getting over that beginning of the year sickness that kids seem to get every year once school starts. The one that your kids always seem to get over faster than you do. This year I've come to the conclusion that it is because I make them sit and rest while I serve them meals and snacks and keep them hydrated. All the while there is no one to make sure mom or dad rests or stays hydrated. The result being parents who stay sicker longer!
How is your school year so far? Has your family avoided the beginning of the year sickness?
Ever sat down and felt a hand on your elbow? Or a leg across your knee? Maybe both. The most talented kids have a quick approach to sliding into their parents lab with ease. My kid has a ninja-like technique which she's perfected. She hides near my computer and waits for me to sit comfortably. Then, sneaks through my arms and lands in a tiny ball. This would seem impossible given she's three feet tall and 40 pounds – but it's occurred so frequently I think she's missing a skeleton.
Lucky for me, my 4 year old isn't old enough for most amusement park attractions. I'm sure I'll have my day – but this summer, I'm battling another force of nature. The 'I need to be under you syndrome' and 'Mommy, I must sit in your lap debacle'. I enjoy our cuddles and make sure to hug my child throughout the day. Her timing is the issue. She doesn't wish to snuggle while she is busy. Nor does she want to be bothered when enjoying a craft, movie or phonics lesson...
Top 3 reasons Mommy is NOT an Amusement Park:
Leaving the threenager saga behind, we are entering a new realm. It's full of why, how and when questions. In an effort to be as clear as possible I've started being very specific with my request. Hence, do not climb on me because – MOMMY IS NOT AN AMUSEMENT PARK! (I foresee a detailed discussion on how fun amusement parks must be --- I'll cross that bridge at 5.)
How do you handle the endless tugs from your cuties?
