National Panda Day!

I did not realize that today was National Panda Day until just now, and we haven't even celebrated appropriately.

For the record, I don't know how one celebrates National Panda Day appropriately, but I'm sure it is going to involve something with pandas.  At least we have some awesome goodies from Disney's Born in China to share and get our panda fix in.

More Summer Planning - Avid4 Adventure Camps

You know we all love the Colorado life, especially the mountains!

And we are so happy to be back for the summer this year.  We're making plans for rafting, hiking, and more, plus some awesome camp ideas for both kids.  We're excited to be working with Avid4 Adventure Camps to share their awesome summer programs too, in both Colorado and California.

Beauty & the Beast - Previews, Coloring Sheets & More

Are you super excited for the live action Beauty & the Beast?

We love all things Disney, so we can't wait for it to come out.  Thankfully, our awesome media contact in Seattle put us in touch with a media contact here in Denver and we get to see the sneak preview on Tuesday.

Planning Summer? Check Out British Soccer Camps

Have you started planning summer camps for your kids yet?

I have!  It always seems crazy to start planning when it's still winter, but I need a summer schedule planned.  Ben is especially excited that he will be able to attend British Soccer Camp again, but this time here in CO.  He went the past two years in Washington and loved it, and the coaches did a great job helping his game develop.

Welcome Back, from Colorado

We did it!  We moved again!

The Army gave us a few choices and back to Colorado Springs was the winner by far!  We loved it here before and 4 years was definitely not enough, so we came back.

We share reviews, ideas for kids, homeschool stuff, crafts, Scouts, food, and more, along with what to do with your kids wherever we might be living at the time.  Thanks for visiting!

That's No Moon {3DLightFX Review}

Now that we're settled and mostly unpacked in the new house, the fun part begins--decorating our new house!

This time, we own our house, so my decorating options are much more intense.  We can paint, we can do any kind of wall hangings, you name it.  Since Ben has fairly new space themed decor, we're keeping his theme and adding on a little bit, including some Star Wars touches.  Our new 3DLightFX Death Star night light adds the perfect accent to his room.

Treat Your Pet with a Pet Gift Box

Besides stuff for my kids, I absolutely love getting projects to share with my furry kid.

This holiday season, we got to check out the Pet Gift Box for Dante and we are loving the idea!

The Pet Gift Box is a monthly pet subscription box.  You choose dog or cat, enter all your information, and once a month, a box of goodies is delivered right to your door!  It's full of treats and toys for your pet and can be ordered once or on an on-going monthly basis, whatever suits you best.
