The Rio 2016 Olympic games is in full swing and we have been enjoying this experience with the kids to the fullest. The atmosphere here is so amazing and some of the events/games we got to watch were a lot of fun. Just to get an idea, think Michael Phelps live and a picture of Bela with gymnast Ragan Smith. All these Olympic athletes are pretty amazing to watch. As a matter of fact, we have enjoyed this trip so much that we thought that maybe, just maybe, we could make trips to every Olympic game a family tradition. Does anybody want to join us in Tokyo?! Here are some of our travel scenes for my weekly photo challenge.

Do you have any plants around your house? Do you know how to care for such plants? Today I am sharing with you the best houseplant to have in your house. I love to bring some greenery inside the house to spruce up the décor. But caring for a houseplant is not always easy. I have tried a few houseplants over the years, and I must say that the easiest one to care for is the gorgeous Mother-in-Law's Tongue. These sword-shaped plants are one of the best houseplants for beginners. They require very little water. In fact, the biggest danger is overwatering them. The Mother-in-Law's Tongue is excellent in a grouping and will provide striking displays in any room.
Caring for Mother-in-Law's TongueWater: Let the soil dry between waterings. I water my plant only once-a-week. And during the winter, that can be reduced to once-a-month, or whenever the soil is dry to the touch.
LightThey prefer bright light. So place your houseplant in a room that gets some sun or near a widow.
TemperatureThey will suffer if exposed to temperatures below 50ºF. So keep them inside throughout the whole year.
FertilizerWhen I remember, I add some fertilizer during the Spring. The beautiful Mother-in-Law's Tongue planter is now part of our family. They have been on the same corner for 3 years now, and they feel right at home. PS: to see more design tips follow us on IG.

Two days ago we headed down south, way down I should say. Alex, the kids and I hopped on an airplane to fly to Brazil to catch a glimpse of the Olympic games happening next week in Rio de Janeiro. While traveling with my family is one of my favorite things to do, every parent knows that traveling with kids is always a bit crazy and often exhausting. Due to some inevitable long layovers, travel can easily be a daunting task. To make things a little easier during our long 10-hour wait in Miami, we left the airport and went exploring. So for this week's photo challenge, I focused on portraits during a layover. But fortunately, the layover turned out to be a good one...
