Monday night our family was invited to a screening of Disney’s Finding Dory.  Bubbles hasn’t been too interested in going to the theater lately, but when I told her we had Finding Dory tickets she was really excited.  We love Finding Nemo and she wanted to see the characters on the big screen.

The movie did not disappoint at all.  Bubbles came out of the theater talking nonstop about her favorite parts and how much fun she had and when could we see it again. Continue reading »

Thank you to the Blogger Babes for sending a complimentary copy of The Flower Chef.

Our county fair provided an opportunity for those who wanted to practice their floral arrangement skills.  It was open to all age groups from kids to adults.

In both elementary and middle school I was lucky enough that my Mom humored me and let me enter each year.  She’d drive me all over to collect wildflowers, and we’d prune select buds from both our own and my Grandmother’s yards and gardens. Continue reading »

I don’t recall seeing the first Alvin & the Chipmunks live(ish?) action movie, but I have watched the cartoon from time to time.  And who hasn’t heard the Chipmunks Christmas song, right?

A couple of weeks ago I was sent a free digital code for Marvel’s Ant-Man movie.  We didn’t get a chance to catch it at the theater and my parents hadn’t watched it yet, either, so we had a little (pardon the pun) Ant-Man viewing party while they were here a couple weeks ago.

I’ve been excited to see Jurassic World since I first heard it was being made.  I still remember watching the first Jurassic Park movie when it came out and being entirely in awe when those first dinosaurs came into view as they rolled up in the little Jeeps.

Of course after my Chris Pratt interview awhile back, I was looking forward to seeing him in another role.  I had really wanted to see it in theaters but I was afraid that even though she wanted to see it, it may be too overwhelming and scary for Bubbles.  And with Ashley in Indy teaching and Austin away doing his Army training, our babysitting options are a bit limited at the moment.
