Sun Tail Mermaid Tails {Review}

Who wouldn't love to be a mermaid?

Mermaid swim fins are an awesome holiday gift and not just for the little ones on your list.  This year, we are partnering with Sun Tail Mermaid Tails and it was my 15 year old who desperately wanted one!  She has mermaid aspirations too.

Watch Ya' Mouth Throwdown {Review}

Are you looking for a family Christmas game?

Every year, at our house, Santa leaves the kids at least one game under the Christmas tree.  We love different board games and card games and it's been a great tradition to have.  On Thanksgiving weekend, we go to try out the Watch Ya' Mouth Throwdown game and it's definitely an under-the-Christmas-tree recommendation.

Silver Dollar City - An Old Time Christmas {Branson Reviews}

One of the things we were most looking forward to on our Branson vacation was visiting Silver Dollar City.  We've heard about it from friends and knew that it would be a perfect family day.

Even better, we were there just in time for the opening of An Old Time Christmas!

The Butterfly Palace {Branson Reviews}

Since we were a little unsure how the weather would be on our Branson vacation, we wanted to plan a variety of indoor and outdoor activities.

For one of our indoor days, we chose The Butterfly Palace and Rainforest Adventure and we are so happy we did!  We spent several hours there, enjoying the butterflies and the rest of the activities.

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.
