My kids are 10 and 8 and they were just barely the age to where they could still enjoy the show.  Any older and I don’t think they would have liked it as much.  It’s definitely geared towards the littlest Disney fans.  My oldest is really into ice skating and sits glued to the Winter Olympics, so he had fun with that aspect of it.  The jumps and lifts were thrilling for him.  The twins enjoyed the music from Cars and Toy Story but the Tinker Bell skit dragged for them (BOYS!).  I personally thought it was entertaining but my...

San Diego Seal Tour

  San Diego has some pretty great attractions and one of our favorites of these is the San Diego Seal Tour.  My parents bought the boys tickets for their birthday and this one-of-a-kind ride was so much fun! The Seal Tour is a unique vehicle as it goes on both land and sea.  The tour is 90 minutes, beginning in Sea Port Village.  It drives you along the water front, past the Maritime Museum and the Star of India and then splashes into the San Diego Harbor!  The tour is narrated by a Captain who gives you fun history about the waterfront and harbor.  We saw several Military vessels and the Dolphin Training Center.  We got to see a nuclear submarine that was coming into port! After our tour, we had lunch and spent some time wandering the beautiful Sea Port Village.  If you are a resident of San Diego, you can take the tour for FREE by getting yourself a Hometown...

DIY Minecraft Birthday Party

Our Twins turned eight years old this year and like 98% of other eight year old boys in this country, they insisted on having a Minecraft Birthday Party.   Unfortunately, Minecraft Birthday Supplies do NOT exist in the party stores.  I don’t know why this is…it seems to me that it would be a marketing gold mine!  Nonetheless, I had to set out and create everything myself.  With the help of Pinterest and some other savvy mom blogs, I had plenty of ideas and it all came together to create lots of smiles and happy little kids!  Here is how I did it: Minecraft Food Minecraft food is way fun!  It is super easy to google various Minecraft food graphics and make simple tent cards (eg: search “minecraft watermelon,” minecraft sticks,” etc).  This doubles as informational as well as decorative.  If you google or search Pinterest you will find a lot of clever food variations.  I have seen red licorice dubbed as “TNT” and I have seen people use Sweedish Fish candy for “fish” instead of Goldfish Crackers.  Whichever way you go, just be creative.  The food can be as simple or complicated as you wish to make it.  Since our party was for a bunch of eight year olds, I went for kid-friendly finger foods that they could grab and go in between swimming and playing. If you...
