The Northforker mom has a confession to make. For the month of July, I didn’t spend much time out on the North Fork. Or with my kids.

After Brian’s ninth birthday on July 2, Bill and I went to Napa to celebrate our tenth wedding anniversary. The rest of the weekends were filled with concerts, bridal showers, and other mom adventures. I missed spending time with my boys. I’d like to say that they missed me terribly, but they got to spend some time with their dad, Grammy, Pop-Pop and Grandpa, having their own North Fork adventures. (more…)

School’s out and the Huber boys have a bunch of fun things planned for this summer.

Sure, they’ll be spending some time indoors playing video games, but mostly they’ll be running, biking and playing in the water.

Need plans for the little ones? Here are some North Fork ideas you can do with your kids to keep them moving and active during the summer months. (more…)

I have a mom confession to make. My boys can easily manipulate me.

No, they can’t have iPads or video games during the week. I won’t let them up at 5:30 a.m., no matter how much they want to. They can’t put each other up for adoption. And they can’t get ice cream every time the truck comes through the neighborhood. But they have managed to get me to do some really cool things I never would have done by convincing me that they were really cool things.  (more…)

After a crazy, hectic week of scheduling and running around, Northforker Mom is ready to celebrate Mother’s Day.

Although I tell my boys that “every day is Mother’s Day,” we moms really only get one special day that’s supposed to be all about us. So for this week, I’d like to share a top five list of things I’ve learned since becoming a mom. (more…)

After a week of tests, science projects and spring colds, the Hubers needed to get out of the house.

We decided it would be a good idea to check out two places we had never been as a family: Orient Beach and Wildwood state parks. (more…)

Parents: Have you ever found an event or a place that’s so cool that you almost don’t want to tell people about it for fear it might become popular?

The Hubers found two of those things last weekend. (more…)
