We are so excited about the new Cars 3 movie, coming out in June!

The first two were big favorites when my kids were younger and we have to watch the third.  We're also very happy to be taking part in the Road to the Races Nationwide Tour in Denver, May 27 and 28, at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Littleton.

Avid4Adventure Colorado Springs Summer Camps

We absolutely love living in Colorado Springs, especially for all the outdoor options nearby.  From skiing all winter long, to rafting, hiking, and climbing in the summer, it's been a perfect fit for our family.

This summer, we were so excited to find out that Avid4Adventure has expanded their camp offerings to Colorado Springs!  Ben loves the outdoors and a camp that focuses on those kind of activities is just perfect for him.  He's done a few things at Boy Scouts and wants to hone his abilities, and he loves getting the chance to try new skills out.

Disney Princess Springtime Fun

I remember our Disney Princess Days vividly.  There were books, movies, costumes, you name it, we probably had it.

Now, we all still enjoy a good Disney movie, but the days of all princess, all the time are past.  Thankfully, we have sweet little friends we can share a good Disney book with and we were excited to see what Parragon sent us for April!

What was in our box this month?  Four great coloring and activity books!

National Geographic Mars #MarsDay

What would life be like if humans had the ability to colonize Mars?

In National Geographic's Mars, the question is being answered.  The 6-part combination of mini-series and documentary is available now on Blu-Ray and DVD for home viewing and we've been watching it as a family.  Both kids, ages 11 and 14, are enjoying it and Mars is making for some great family movie time.

This month, we received another fun package from Zonderkidz with new books to share.  One of our picks?  Natasha Bure's Let's Be Real, which I thought might be a good pick for my girl.

Easter Basket Ideas from Parragon

What do you put in your kids' Easter baskets?

Mine aren't huge candy fans (really, they did not get this from me), so I usually put in a few small eggs of their favorites, then fill the rest with some other goodies.  One thing for sure, there's always a few books in their baskets.  This month, Parragon sent us some awesome new Disney titles that would be great in an Easter basket.
