Find Dory - Activities & Trailer


Are you as excited as we are about Finding Dory?

We loved Finding Nemo so much and this sequel has been such a long time coming!  It opens nationwide on June 17th and, pending summer camp, we will totally be there that day!  I kind of wish I could talk one of the kids into having a Nemo and Dory themed birthday.  I have a vision in my head, but I also have kids who are 10 and 13, so I'm also not holding my breath.

We do have some really cute coloring sheets to share!


Just click on Marlin, Nemo, & Dory above, or on this link here, to download a set of five cute coloring pages for your Nemo fans!

Until then, check out the trailer!  Doesn't it make you want to see it even more?


Disclosure: Thanks so much to Disney Pixar for providing the above info and sheets!

Family Fun at the Washington State Spring Fair {Review}

This past weekend, we headed off to the Washington State Spring Fair.  Since we haven't lived here for quite a year yet, we haven't had a chance to check it out in the past and we were quite excited to go.  The kids had seen the advertisements and were more than happy to help out with a blog post.

Make Dental Care Fun with Plackers® Flosser Friend {Review}

Starting a good dental routine for kids is so important.  From their very first teeth, good habits help children learn the routines they'll carry through adulthood.  But, as parents, getting them to practice those same habits can be a bit more difficult in practice than it is in theory.


Luckily, Plackers® is helping parents establish healthy dental care habits for their kids in a fun way!   Besides daily brushing, it's important to help kids establish a flossing routine too, beginning when they first have two teeth touching.  Flossing regularly removes plaque and food from areas between the teeth that can’t be reached by brushing alone.

AdoramaPix - Metal Photo Prints


Sometimes, you become so fascinated with a blog project that it becomes a go-to item in your home.  That's pretty much how we feel about AdoramaPix metal photo prints.  We had the opportunity to order one for a blog review before the holidays and I absolutely adore it.  We chose a family shot of us hiking at Teton National Park.  That one turned out so well that we ordered a second one to go with it of the four of us at Mount Rushmore, not for a blog post, just because I wanted one.


Next up, we're excited to try out the new Hexagon Metal Prints.

Washington State Spring Fair

The sun seems to be coming out again in Washington!  Maybe this means spring is here?  We really hope so!  And, even better, the Washington State Spring Fair is a great celebration to spring!

Magformers {Review}


We're so excited to be checking out the new 26-piece Neon Magformers this week!

I was a little apprehensive at first, with the sets stating for ages 3 and up.  But once our Magformers arrived?  I had a 10 year old who dove right in!

Alvin & The Chipmunks: The Road Chip {Giveaway}


I always loved the Alvin and the Chipmunks cartoons when I was a kid. I even had goldfish named Alvin, Simon, Theodore, and Dave.  (Unfortunately, only Dave lasted, so I had one random goldfish named Dave, which was also my dad's name.  He was a big fat white goldfish--Dave the fish, not Dave my dad.)

Everyone’s favorite singing pop stars, the Chipmunks, are back as Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment’s ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS: THE ROAD CHIP arrives on Blu-ray™ & DVD March 15, 2016.
