BlogHer 08 Wrap up

I’ve taken a long time to write this post, not just to capture the long list of incredible women (and man) I met 2 weeks ago at the BlogHer conference in San Francisco, but because I couldn’t quite figure out how to put into words what the experience meant to me. Well in the 2 [...]

It looks as though “B” is concerned and wondering: Where is Granddad’s helmet?   Every Wednesday we’ll be sharing a photo showing off a little bit of wonder in the lives of our extended Graco family of customers, employees and friends.

Summer Camp: The Aftermath

Gus just completed his annual week in the mountains at summer Boy Scout Camp. I don’t know exactly how many Scout Troops were there this year, but there sure were a lot of uninformed Scouts on that mountain.

How Much is the 1st Lock of Hair Worth? Priceless! (or maybe not)

I can now laugh about this story, but there was a moment when I couldn’t hold back the tears. Most people reading this will think it’s a bit strange – I can tell you I received my fair share of stares at the Rental Car Office. But to all of the mothers out there, I [...]
