PapiBlogger and Mamá Contemporánea are getting set for the national launch of the 2010 Holiday Gift Guide this coming Monday. Many thanks to all of our wonderful sponsors, including Fisher-Price, Baby Abuelita, Lowe’s, Kolcraft, George Foreman Evolve Grill and Sony.
My family and I want to thank all of you who participated in this year’s PapiBlogger Halloween Kid Photo Contest co-presented by our sponsors Sony and McDonald’s. My children, Jonathan, Elena and Briani poured through numerous photo entries and really enjoyed the process of using their critical thinking skills to pick this year’s winners.
PapiBlogger, the first web site focused on creative parenting tips and the first Latino man to consistently blog about parenting, is proud to announce the winners of the PapiBlogger Facebook fan page “Guess the Final Miles” Contest sponsored by McDonald’s, Sprint Nextel, Chevrolet and Sony.
After more than 11,000 miles, 33 states and 46 days, PapiBlogger’s epic family road trip will come to a rousing end with a celebration in Miami. “Our journey has been nothing less than astonishing,” said PapiBlogger Manny Ruiz. “Everywhere we’ve gone people ask ‘How did you do it with three kids?’ ‘What’s the favorite part of your trip?’ ‘What did you learn about America?’ We’re eager to share those stories and more with the world.”
In preparation for that trip into a far and unknown land, the organizing pastor told us that the most important thing we should do to mentally gear up for it was to remember the unofficial motto of the United States Marines: Improvise, Adapt, Overcome.
A Miami family of five is about to embark on what might be this century’s epic U.S. family road trip. Starting on Father’s Day, PapiBlogger.com founder and father of three Manny Ruiz, his wife Angela and their children Briani (1), Elena (6) and Jonathan (10) will embark on a 10,000-mile PapiBlogger Family Road Trip that will circle the four corners of the continental United States.
