LEGOLAND Florida: What to know before you go!

LEGOLAND. It’s what kid dreams are made of! As far back as I can remember, LEGO bricks were the cool toy to have. I had a few sets growing up, but they were nothing quite intricate and elaborate like the ones my little ones (and maybe myself) have now. Each birthday or holiday, you can bet that there’s a new set on their list. As parents, we absolutely love LEGO sets because it allows our children to think, be imaginative and constructive.Continue Reading

Explore the Great Outdoors with the Ultimate Northern Florida Family Vacation

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Ocala/Marion County VCB for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

When it comes to summer in South Florida, we are usually all about living in the moment. We tend to take things day-by-day and see where we end up. Most of our days consist of sleeping in, relaxing and lots of water activities to keep us cool. However, I do attempt a mini-vacation at some point. Depending on hubby’s schedule, of course.Continue Reading

Netflix Kids Picks: March

Is it Spring Break yet? I have been non-stop since the last vacation and am so ready to plop myself on the couch in front of the TV for a week. And if not that, I’m seriously considering hibernation. The littles have been quite busy as well. This past weekend, we attended a local STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) event and it was so much fun! Bunbun visited the NOAA booth and took on the challenge of building a buoy that could float on water and hold golf balls. At only 6 years old, she amazes me in everything she does. She built a buoy out of PVC, attached a Frisbee on top and it floated with 36 golf balls!!! She won a medal for creating a buoy that held the most golf balls and was so proud of herself. I can’t wait to see which career path she chooses later in life. Okay, wait. Maybe I can…

Netflix Kids Picks: December

Well, “winter” break is oficially here for Bunbun. I’m quite not sure why they call it that here in South Florida because we don’t get much of a winter, if at all. Unless you count the two days in February where you wake up to 50 degree weather and its 75 by Noon. Either way, it means two full weeks of having my babies home with me everyday and I am ecstatic! My hubby will be taking most of the break off from work to be with us which is always great, because family time is so important to us.

5 Thanksgiving Books for Kids

As a parent, I often times find it difficult to explain things in a way my children will completely understand. Holiday’s are one of those times for some reason. I can explain the historical aspects, but not so well on a child’s level of understanding, if that makes sense. I tend to look for books that can help with this. Between the wording and the pictures, I find that it seems to click for them.

Thanksgiving is about more than just eating, but try to explain that to a 3 year old boy! Bunbun more/less understands now. My little guy however, just wants to eat everything on the table!

Netflix Kids Picks: Halloween

My little monsters have been quite busy this month! They scoped out the Netflix scene early and quickly began watching Halloween movies. The Buddies series of movies by Disney is one of Bunbun’s favorites and she was quite pleased to find Spooky Buddies in their lineup. The Nightmare Before Christmas is a family tradition of ours. We pop popcorn, grab all of our pillows, a few blankets and cuddle up on the couch. This year, we introduced the kids to The Addams Family, forgetting the content. It may not have been the wisest decision considering their ages, but my hubby and I got a little nostalgic as it reminded us of our childhood.

Netflix Kids Picks: September

I can’t believe Bunbun has been back to school for almost a month already! When I wrote my last post, we were getting ready for the start of school and totally binging on our Netflix. Lately, we haven’t been watching as much as a family due to school days and of course, homework. However, my little guy has been using his alone time very wisely, with some fresh picks for the month of September.
