Hollywood Wax Museum Entertainment Center {Branson Reviews}

When we scheduled our Branson trip, we tried to plan a good variety of activities.  We scheduled shows, booked a hotel with a waterpark and indoor pool, and came up with some great family activities too.

One of those was the Hollywood Wax Museum Entertainment Center in Branson.  We thought it seemed like a perfect way to spend a day and we were thrilled to receive all-access passes for our family to try it out.

Baldknobbers {Branson Reviews}

When we planned our Branson trip, we made sure to book a couple of shows.

We all love concerts, musicals, and plays, so shows were a must-do on our list.  We were excited when we got the chance to partner with Baldknobbers to see and share their Christmas show, and it's another great, family-friendly Branson offering.

The Amazing Pet Show {Branson Reviews}

We are back from our post deployment family vacation and we absolutely loved Branson!

It was our first time to visit and we had an amazing trip.  Branson is a great destination for families and there is simply so much to do.  We'll be sharing the highlights of our trip this week and hopefully helping you to plan your own family trip.

First up?  The Amazing Pet Show at the Grand Country Resort.

Watch Ya' Mouth Throwdown Edition

One of our favorite Christmas traditions is the new game we get each year.

We've picked card games, trivia games, strategy games, etc, and playing them always results in great times.  The kids typically open a game on Christmas Eve, and most of Christmas morning is spent in our jammies, playing the new game.  This year, we're happy to add Watch Ya' Mouth Throwdown Edition to our game closet.

Sun Tail Mermaid Tails

Sometimes, you find one of those Christmas gift ideas that you want too.

The Sun Tail Mermaid tail is one of those. I can't even begin to explain how much I feel like I need a mermaid tail for myself.  I loved to swim as a kid and would have probably worn a mermaid tail daily.

Treat Your Grandparents with GrandBox: The Subscription Box for Grandparents

Living 1400 miles away from my parents, it's hard to guess what to send them for birthdays and other holidays.  They definitely have everything they need and want, so trying to find something that is a fun surprise is always a challenge.  This month, we're excited to be checking out GrandBox with them, to see what this fun subscription box for grandparents is all about.

The Emoji Movie {Review}

Have you seen The Emoji Movie yet?

I promised the kids a family movie night with popcorn and, after a crazy busy week, we finally managed to have one.  The boy has wanted to see The Emoji Movie since it was released in the theaters, so that was our pick for the weekend.
