The Swan Princess: Princess Tomorrow, Pirate Today! {Review}

Sony Home Video provided me with some of the materials I used in this post. 
The opinions I share are my own.


We are absolutely loving the new Swan Princess movie, The Swan Princess: Princess Tomorrow, Pirate Today!  In our last post, we shared about our fun themed activity kit, and we are just taken with the whole Swan Princess franchise right now.

Introducing The Swan Princess: Princess Tomorrow, Pirate Today!

Who doesn't love a fun family movie night?  We love relaxing at home, and enjoying a new movie as a family, along with sharing a great movie with our neighbor friends.  This week, we've had the chance to check out The Swan Princess: Princess Tomorrow, Pirate Today.


We received a copy of the movie, along with a fun activity kit to go with it.  Faith is planning on sharing it with our cute little neighbor friends the next time she babysits for them too.

Between summer camps and travel, we took the summer off from the blog, but now that the school year has started, we are back!

Kung Fu Partying with Kung Fu Panda 3

How do you Kung Fu Panda party?


We were so excited to get a chance to host a family movie night, especially with a movie none of us had seen!  With sleepovers and friends, it seems like someone has seen almost everything, but we were saving Kung Fu Panda 3 for a family night.  Once both kids were home from summer camp, we planned an evening with good food and no company for a family fun night.

Three Things In ... Niagara Falls


I love traveling with the kids and we try to make sure we see a few cool things everywhere we go.

In March, I took the kids back home to Canada to visit my parents.  They live fairly close to Niagara Falls, but the kids hadn't actually been to the Falls in years.  The last time, I think they were 3 and 6 and my brother and sister-in-law took them to do a few fun tourist things.  Both kids asked to go and I knew we had to make it happen.

Protect Your Pet - National Pet Preparedness Month

Wildfires, hurricanes, tornadoes, is your family ready in case of a natural disaster?

Research shows that about half the households in the United States are prepared for human family needs in case of a natural disaster, but not for pet needs.  In our family, Dante is definitely our third child and we need to be prepared for his needs as well as our own!


Since June is National Pet Preparedness Month, we had the chance to take part in a Google Hangout with Purina vet, Dr. Kurt Venator, to learn more about how to prepare for natural disasters with your pet and what should be in your emergency kit to keep your furry friend safe.

The Aetherlight: Chronicles of the Resistance {Review}


The Aetherlight: Chronicles of the Resistance is an online multiplayer game, designed for kids to help relate the story of the Bible to them in a way that keeps their attention.  Like Narnia, the design is to bring children towards the Word in a way that relates.


From the game site:
The Aetherlight effectively engages kids in the bible by engaging their imaginations with an epic allegorical story, like the Chronicles of Narnia did for the generations past. By closely following the story of the bible, but in a steampunk inspired land, players are able to make the connections and discoveries for themselves, and see the bible stories in a new light.
We've been able to check out the game over the last few days to see what we think and the kids have written the review for me!
