Celebrate Earth Day and Start a Garden

I wanted a fun activity to do with my son today to celebrate Earth Day. Then I remembered the watermelon seeds we received at the DisneySMMoms Celebration this year. I thought today would be a perfect day to plant those seeds and show our DisneySide in our garden!

As soon as my son got home from school, we got started on our gardening plans. I picked up some plain pots and used our fun Mickey Mouse pot to start our seedlings. Starting a garden can be easy, it's keeping the garden growing that's always a challenge for me but we love having fresh produce growing right in out backyard.  My son loves to pick the fruit and vegetables as they grow and we always have enough to share with friends and family.

Healthy Essentials Presents La Familia De Hoy

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post in collaboration between Latina Bloggers Connect and Johnson & Johnson. 

Back in December, the Jimenez Family was selected as La Familia De Hoy. They are modern, active, multicultural family. They represent all the values that Hispanics can relate to and care about.

Just like my family, and many Hispanic families, the Jimenez Family share a special bond. They are constantly looking out for each other, whether is babysitting each other’s children, attending family gatherings on special occasions, getting together for weekend BBQ’s or going to Juan’s boys’ soccer games. Their commitment in life is to pass on their traditional values and Hispanic roots in the younger generation.
