  • Kite Flying Fun
    Photo-A-Day #4486

    I took Andrew over to the beach today to fly a kite. I am pretty sure that I bought the kite around 2007 because that is when I think I was in Kalamazoo, MI. I got it from the airplane museum there and remember bringing it back on the plane and trying to get it into the overhead. The package for it was huge. It was overcast and cold and wet here today so it was a good day to finally take it out of the package and fly it.

    We walked down the beach and were going to fly it there because we figured that there wouldn’t really be anyone on the beach and we wouldn’t disturb anyone. But there ere people there on the beach soaking up the haze. Also, as we walked along we saw some people flying kits on the beach and then they were told to take the kites off the beach. We continued on up the hill b the Casino and then went to the beach past the Casino that is not manned by lifeguards and where no one was using the beach.

    At first I did all the flying. I was nervous of the kite hitting the water or going up into the hill, so I didn’t have Andrew flying it. He really wanted to fly it. I let him try a little while later and he did pretty good. The kite crashed a few times but overall it stayed up and flying. Then he got cold so we headed home. On the way there we went to the large ball field. It was empty so we flew the kite there for a while, as well. Andrew even flew the kite through a couple of loop the loops.

  • Thor ragnarok

    Thor and the incredible hulk are not known for their big brains. They are more known for smashing things first, asking questions later. Well, maybe not asking questions, more like having quizzical looks on their faces. The THOR: RAGNAROK trailer was released at San Diego Comic-Con and it looks like a high stakes super fun trip through space. This trailer has everything in it. Explosive action, humor and heart. These are some characters that you care about and having Thor and Hulk finally have a movie together may solve the problems that viewers have had with the solo Hulk and Thor movies. These guys are unstoppable forces and they play off each other so well. They are matched in a fight, they are both not that bright and they bring great humor to the MCU.

    THOR: RAGNAROK puts these two guys on a journey to save Asgard from Hela and her minions. It also puts them in a collision course with each other in the Grandmaster’s coliseum. Along the way they pick up allies in Valkyrie and Loki. Doctor Strange is set to appear in the movie as well but in what role, I do not know.

    There is a feel of a budy movie to this one along the lines of an 80’s buddy movie where you have two tough guys, sort of like the Tango and Cash of the MCU. And, you know what, Maybe it was my subconscious mind that thought of that because Stallone and Russell were in Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2. You can see the trailer here.

    The movie poster was also released. You can see that and more movie details below.

  • Mole Rats in Space
    Photo-A-Day #4485

    We received a copy of the Peaceable Kingdom Cooperative game Mole Rats in Space for free to play with and review. Opinions are 100% our own.

    Summertime can be a time where you hear the words “I’m bored” all too often. Most often kids want to be entertained and turn off their brains when they get to bored. They use that bored excuse to try and get some screen time. You can counter act that and the dreaded brain drain by engaging with your kids through some cooperative games from Peaceable Kingdom. More often than not the kids really just want to spend time with you or their siblings. Man games make this difficult because they are competitive and someone always ends up the loser.

    With a cooperative game no one is excluded and everyone helps each other out to win the game. We’ve played a lot of these games over the years and many of them were for younger kids. We’re starting to move up to the games for older children like our latest game to review, Mole Rats in Space. Andrew is only 5 1/2 but he can play this game for seven year-olds and up without any problem. we’ve even played with other family members and he is great about helping instruct them.

    So, what is the game about? Mole Rats in Space is about four Mole Rats on a space station that is being invaded by snakes. The Mole rats have to grab supplies and haul their butts to the escape pod in order to win. Along the way they have to avoid the snakes and the tubes that may shoot them out into space. If they don’t get all the supplies and get into the escape pod then they fail. If they get bit twice by a snake then they fail. If anyone gets shot into space then they fail. There are a lot of ways to fail in this game and that is what makes it so challenging. But, don’t despair, there are those that can help. Your friends. read more!


    As a parent, finding time to catch up on your favorite shows can be difficult. There is work, after school activities, the early mornings and late nights to keep up the house. Then you have making dinner, doing laundry and helping the kids with their with homework. It leaves little time for entertainment. So, sometimes you have to sneak around to catch up on episodes of House of Cards, or Orange is the New Black. Maybe you only have a short amount of time and you want to see what the gorgeous ladies of GLOW are doing?

    There are many ways to sneak in some time to watch a little of each of your favorite Netflix shows.

    I’m going to share my sneaks with you and I hope that you share your #MomSneak with me because you could win a 6 Month subscription to NETFLIX!!
