Screen Shot 2014-06-30 at 10.00.05 PM

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey is heading to Dallas FortWorth later this month! Andre McClain, Ringmaster and America’s favorite cowboy takes the Ringling Bros.® reins and accompanied by his horse Comanche, leads his Built To Amaze! funny and mischievous super circus supervisors, to construct The Greatest Show On Earth. A fantastic design with more than 110 of the world’s best performers representing 17 countries along with 95 exotic and domestic animals will be assembled, creating never-before-seen heart pounding performances. Ringling Bros. is thrilled to introduce nine-time international award winning comedic animal presenting duo Alex and Irina Emelin of Russia. Also new to Ringling Bros. is the Tower Tumblers, a troupe of competitive aerial athletes from the Ukraine who launch themselves from trampolines to scale, repel and pass through a three-story high translucent tower. Ringling Bros. brings a spirited and fiery competition of basketball with the next generation of whirling unicyclists, the legendary King Charles Troupe hailing from New York City!

ENDED: How to have a successful @GameTruckHQ Party (+Giveaway)

Game Truck provided our family and friends with a rocking party for our family. All opinions in this post are mine and are honest.

Summer is coming and it’s time to rev up the FUN! This week we got to invite tons of our friends to come and enjoy a Game Truck Party with us! My girls love playing on the iPads, computers and Wii, but I had NO clue how popular this party would be!

Here is how to have a successful Game Truck Party:

  • Call your local Game Truck franchise and set up date/time.
  • Wait for the confirmation email from Gametruckparty.com and use the included link in that email to send out invites to your friends and family.
  • Plan WHERE you want the truck to park during the party. (I chose a park nearby which had tons of room for the truck and parents to park as well. This truck is around 60 ft long.
  • Enjoy not having to do a thing while the kids play for two hours!

This truck is packed with technology! Think XBOX360®, Nintendo WiiT and Playstation®! We invited kids who ranged in age from 6 to 10. This was seriously the EASIEST party that I have ever thrown! Our GameTruck party host was awesome with the kids. He was very patient. He set the rules before they got into the truck and was very helpful and patient with the kids during the party! If you choose to host the party at your house then you are set with everything that you need (bathroom, snacks, seats for parents…etc.) If you chose to have your party at the park then you might want to consider bringing chairs for the parents. I also provided light snacks for the kids. No food or drinks are allowed inside the truck, so I was sure to bring Pampers wipes to clean hands and faces before letting them play inside.  The truck has an awning that provides great shade outside for the parents. The truck also has it’s own air conditioning system and is temperature controlled. Even with the door wide open, it was very cool inside.

The game choices felt endless for the kiddos and I was able to nix the games that I didn’t want offered. (I opted to have the blood/guts/guns types of games removed due to age and such.) Prices for this vary based on weekend/weekday. You have to call with dates in mind to get estimates on what your party would cost. I also included a gratuity for the guy because he was so awesome during the party.

ENDED: Spring Cleaning with #PampersWipes (+ Giveaway)

Have you started your Spring Cleaning? I have!! I actually have enlisted my kids to help and it’s been a great success! I don’t like my kids to touch harsh cleaning chemicals and Pampers has the PERFECT solution! Pampers Sensitive Wipes are 20% thicker than regular Pampers wipes and have the unique Softgrip Texture, which means less wiping for more gentle cleaning.

Sensitive Wipes give babies and kids Pampers’ best gentle spring clean. I use Pampers Sensitive Wipes to give my girls a best gentle clean. My middle daughter is super messy and we go through TONS of wipes each day. My kids always need them during or after meal time. We also use them at night and wipe their feet down on non bath nights. Pampers Wipes are great for sensitive skin and I never worry about my kids skin breaking out or having a reaction.

In our home, we use Pampers wipes to clean baseboards (the kids do the cleaning of those!) and to clean our microfiber couches. We have found that they are very cost effective and gentle.

Giveaway:

Pampers sent me a Gentle Spring Cleaning prize pack with lots of goodies to help facilitate “gentle” spring cleaning and they are teaming up with me to give one away to a lucky reader as well! Enter to win this awesome prize pack by leaving a comment on this blog post with what YOU use Pampers wipes to clean.

Moms know the key “must-have” to help survive a messy day with baby is the everyday use of Pampers Sensitive Wipes. Pampers Sensitive Wipes are not only a key staple to every diaper bag and nursery, but we find that they become mom’s best friend when it comes to cleaning just about anything!.
