Holy galloping guacamole! This Saturday is both "Cinco de Mayo" and the Kentucky Derby.

The two events happen on the same day only once every seven years.

- "Derbys" vs "Cincos" kickball game


Donna's new book "Fidget Busters" hits store shelves this fall. It's all about sensory toys that have spiked in popularity for kids.
