October is a perfect time of year for a Halloween themed family movie night. We have been waiting for Hotel Transylvania to be released on DVD and were so excited to enjoy a Halloween family movie night. Check out what we thought of the movie and a few fun ways to plan your Hotel Transylvania 3 family movie night.
To say my kids were excited to see Kidz Bop Live and spend the weekend at the Darien Lake Hotel, the Lodge on the Lake, would be an understatement. They were so excited and I have to admit, we were too! Even though it is a short drive from our home to the park, we knew we wanted to make a weekend getaway to enjoy Kidz Bop Live and some time spent at the Darien Lake Hotel.
Disney is the best for offering awesome and inspiring family entertainment. When we aren’t visiting the parks we like to bring the Disney magic home and enjoy the latest Disney movie at home or in the theaters. These 7 upcoming Disney movies look amazing and I am marking my calendar now because they are going to be Disney magic at it’s best!
A few weeks ago I announced that I would be a KIDZ BOP brand ambassador and I am so excited! My family has been listening to KIDZ BOP since my oldest was little.

Be brave. You hear this all the time and it can mean different things in different situations. I decided it was time to be brave and face my fear of heights. I was not jumping off bridges or doing anything extreme but I was stepping out of my comfort zone by doing the Sky High Adventure Park at the Holiday Valley Resort.
We are at the start of soccer season in my house and it was the perfect time to watch Alex & Me. Alex & Me is the new soccer movie staring Alex Morgan and Sienna Agudong. I had an opportunity to screen the movie and interview one of the film stars: Siena Agudong. It was a really fun experience to watch the movie with my family and talk to Siena about what motivated her to do this role and what she hopes people take from it.
Summer is almost here and the weather is warming up. This is the best time of year to encourage everyone in my house to unplug from devices, reconnect with each other, and get outside more. Getting outside is great to reconnect as a family and reconnect with nature. This month is National Get Outdoors Month and is a perfect time to make family tech free time and getting outside a priority in your house.
The countdown until summer vacation has begun and that means day trips and exploring. It also means time to refresh your car for summer. I’ve partnered with Refresh Your Car® to bring you some tips to get your car in road trip shape and share some long-lasting fragrance to have your car smelling great all summer long.
Grab your best girl friends and put on your cozy pajamas because Daphne & Velma, the new original movie featuring Scooby Doo’s leading ladies, is perfect for a girls movie night. It’s actually perfect for families because all of us really enjoyed it! There is nothing better than a fun backstory to characters you know and love.
Spring has been a long time coming and I am hoping it is finally here to stay. The spring weather brings everyone out and starts this energy that motivates us to do more. We open the windows and do spring cleaning. At our house we like to use the nicer weather to motivate us to get out and do more for the environment with small family fun activities that are easy for the entire family.

How would you feel if billions of dollars were spent to get tobacco products in front of your kids? It is happening in stores across our communities. Tobacco companies know that the more kids see the tobacco products and the more enticing and excitement they make it look, the more likely they are to start smoking. As parents we are the first line of defense. It is our job to start the conversation with our kids and help put an end to kids smoking.

It is spring break time across the country and my kids are just starting their break this week. I was actually counting down the days until break because we all really need one. I have been using the Dosh App for almost a year now and I’m really excited to share with you fun ways to plan quality family time with your family and earn Dosh cash during your spring break.
Growing up I was a big fan of the Muppet Show and Muppet Babies. The characters were so lovable and all around fun. On Friday, March 23rd Disney released the all new Muppet Babies. To say I am excited is a huge understatement. Muppet Babies is a fun show the entire family can enjoy, and I am so happy for the reboot!
You know when you see a trailer for a movie and it is so visually stunning you can’t wait to check it out. That is how we felt about Disney’s A Wrinkle In Time. The costumes and the beautiful set designs made this movie top on my families must see list. Over the weekend we finally had a chance to see Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time and we’re sharing our thoughts to help you decide if it is a good pick for your family.
Earlier this year I shared that I want to be more intentional with our family time. What better way to enjoy family then visiting Kettle Ridge Farm. Kettle Ridge Farm is all about family. From the people behind the tasting counter to the people that help you tap your maple tree, they are all about working together and being a family. I love this about Kettle Ridge Farm and I couldn’t wait to bring my family back for our pancake breakfast and our tree tapping.
2018 is here and it feels like a really big year for my family. It is the year that my oldest will turn ten. Ten years old feels big. It feels more responsible and more independent. It feels like a new chapter of our lives. With this big change and all of my children getting one year older, I feel the pull to soak up every minute with them and enjoy every moment I have with them. This year I am saying Yes to setting intentions for family time.
If you are a parent of more then one child there will be moments when your kids arguing with each other will be a constant parenting battle. As a mom of three kids, I am always working on building and strengthening my kids relationships with each other. Helping your kids cooperate not only makes your house more calm, it builds their relationship, teaches them to respect each other, and with less kids arguing there is more time for family fun and connections.
