Colorado Renaissance Festival {Colorado Outings}

One of our favorite summertime activities in Colorado is definitely Colorado Renaissance Festival!

We were so excited to have the chance to go back to Larkspur this year, after missing a few summers while we lived in Washington.  It was great to see some of our favorite acts and discover some new ones, along with eating a whole lot of yummy food.

Number One Chinese Restaurant by Lillian Li {Review}

I've been working my way through books on my to-read list and my NetGalley requests.  I just finished one of my NetGalley picks and it was awesome!

Lillian Li's debut novel chronicles the lives of the characters from a past-storied Chinese restaurant, the Duck House, in suburban Maryland, and would definitely end up on my summer picks list.

Battleship Iowa {Los Angeles}

Planning a few summer trips and one of them is going to take us back to California again.

While browsing for different things to do, I came across Battleship Iowa, the West Coast's only battleship open to the public.  It sounds like a lot of fun, especially for the boy, so I decided it is now a part of our vacation plans.

Are You Ready for Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation? {Giveaway}

Both of my kids loved the first two Hotel Transylvania movies, and I did too.

It's a great series, starring all of your favorite monsters, featuring Dracula as a monster hotel owner, along with his friends Frankenstein, the Mummy, the Invisible Man, werewolves, and more.

While we are anticipating the release of the third movie, Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, we are giving away a great movie night for your family, featuring the first two movies.

The Incredible 2 {Review & Printables}

Do you have plans for this coming weekend yet?

If you don't, or they are remotely flexible, make sure you take the time to go see the Incredibles 2!  We got the chance to see the sneak preview last week and it is everything we could have hoped for.

Sold on a Monday by Kristina McMorris {Review}

One thing I've decided to do for myself this year?

Read more!  I'm going through my "Want to Read" lists on Amazon, Litsy, and Goodreads to pick up books I've filed away as ones that sounded like great reads, but I also an rediscovering NetGalley.  There are a few that I just had to request and I was lucky enough to get most of those.
