Share your favorite movies


As our daughter gets older, we love sharing our favorite movies with her. She loves a good movie series. Tell her there is a horrible third movie and she is ready to watch it. Here are a few of our favorites. Click on the link to order from Amazon.


Star Wars: The Complete Saga. If your kids haven’t seen this, watch all six before the new one comes out in December.




The Jurassic Park trilogy. The first one is fabulous, and they are releasing a 4th episode in June with Chris Pratt.


Indiana Jones: The Complete Adventures. Raiders of the Lost Ark, Temple of Doom, Last Crusade and Kingdom of the Crystal Skull are all included.



The Harry Potter Complete 8-Film Collection.




Goonies, Gremlins and Gremlins 2.


Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Dead Man’s Chest, At World’s End and On Stranger Tides.


The Back To The Future Trilogy.

Cool Pool Toys


Summer is right around the corner and so are the lazy days at the pool. Check out these cool toys. Links are to Amazon, but you can get many of them locally.

One of Amazon’s best sellers is this Melissa & Doug Sunny Patch Undersea Treasure Hunt set. The chest and coins sink for underwater fun. You can find it here for about $10.  



The Melissa & Doug Sunny Patch Spark Shark Fish Hunt looks like it can keep your little ones busy catching fish. You can find it here for about $15.

The Swimways Gobble Gobble Guppies is another fun way to catch fish in the water. The little kids love this. You can find it here for about $10.



Make your pool noodle into a chair with this net adapter. You can find it here for about $10.

Dearlc did this fun party set with real grass. You can read about the party here.



Peanuts scare me now with all the allergies out there, but these are adorable as vase fillers. Aromatic delights has more from this baby shower here.




In this uber-competitive, super-mom world unrealistic expectations are the norm. With that said, these super-mom meals look impressive, but don’t seem to require too much time or skill.

These bunny biscuits don’t look too hard.

For those more creative there are Cinnabunnies found here. Use the Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls from the refrigerated section at the grocery store. Add raisins as eyes and a few slivered almonds. My daughter thought they were adorable, and I think she might even be able to recreate this masterpiece.
