Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Presents DRAGONS Review

We were very excited to be able to attend Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Baily DRAGONS last night in Grand Rapids. We arrived about an hour before the show for the pre-show. I thought it would be very busy and I wanted to make sure we were able to enjoy the pre-show. I was very lucky I did not have to wait in line to pick up the tickets for the show. Although I noticed about ten minutes later the line started to pick up. 

When we went through the lines we were able to walk down to the pre-show. It was very easy to get down to the pre-show. We were able to enjoy the pre-show for about 40 minutes. When we first got down on the floor we noticed a table where you could pick up a free red clown nose. With my children they had to open it up and try to wear them at that given moment. I was surprised on how many things that they had going on for the children before the show. They had a fun house, fake tattoos, one ring had clown skits and other acts. Than the far end where we did not go was w…

When I opened the bottle to try I always notice the scent and that usually will break or make the deal. This was a faint orange smell that was not to strong. With this product you will need to know a little goes a long way! Which is great to know. This bottle will last you a very long time. When you apply the product you use a cotton ba…

Bugs in the Kitchen Game Review (holiday Gift Guide)

In my house if you and you mention a bug my children would start screaming. When I recently introduced my son to the game Bugs in the Kitchen I was not sure what reaction I would get from him. When I tried to explain the game and that i was not real bugs he started to ease up a little bit. He was skeptic at first and not quite sure. When we received the game Bugs in the Kitchen it was a pretty neat idea. It came with a pesky HEXBUG nano. This bug was scattering around the game board. It was pretty cool. My son thought it was awesome and he jumped right in. This game is easy for children to get the concept of playing it. The object of the game is to trap the HEXBUG by turning knives, forks and spoons that can direct the bug into the trap. When it is your turn you will throw the die to figure out which utensil you can use for your turn. If you catch the bug on your turn you will earn a token. The first player who collects 5 tokens will win that game. This game is recommend for age 6 and…

Johnson's Baby Products Review

The holiday season is coming around the corner and I have found the best gift for expectant mother and new mothers. I would make a gift basket filled with Johnson and Johnson baby products. Recently they came out with a few new products and also have my old time favorite products.  I am always debating around Christmas time if I should buy friends/family who are expecting a present for their baby. I usually end up putting together a small gift basket full of goodies that they can use for their baby when they are born. I recently received several products from Johnson and Johnson that would make perfect gifts for the gift basket for expectant mothers.  

The first product that would go great in babies gift basket is Johnson's baby powder. This product was always a must have for me with both of my children. Their baby powder comes in a 22 oz container. I always loved using Johnson's baby powder on my son and daughters skin not only did help absorb extra moisture it also helped keep…
