  • MYSTICAL Christopher Robin and Pooh

    Christopher Robin (Ewan McGregor) and his longtime friend Winnie the Pooh in Disney’s CHRISTOPHER ROBIN.

    It is hard for me to believe that it is almost August 3rd and the release of Christopher Robin. Back in February when I attended Disney Social Media Moms Celebration I got to see a ton of the movie and it really spoke to me. Winnie the Pooh is one of Allison’s favorite characters. So much so that she has a ton of Winnie the Pooh things. We even decorated Eva’s room with Winnie the Pooh themed things and she went as Winnie the Pooh for Halloween a couple of times. Andrew did as well. We still have the costume. But, it wasn’t so much that Winnie the Pooh hit me, it was Christopher Robin. The movie is a story of the boy grown into a man who has lost that childlike wonder that he had. It is a story about him learning to play again and finding his inner child. It really hit me.

    So, I am truly excited because at the end of the month I am heading to California for the Red Carpet premiere of Christopher Robin. I cannot wait!

    When I told Andrew that I was going he was upset because he wanted to watch the movie with me. I told him that I would certainly go with him once I got home. I can go ahead and buy miy tickets today if I want to because advance ticket sales just opened for the movie everywhere. To celebrate I have two featurettes to share with you. One is called Legacy and it talks about what Pooh means to so many people.

  • Andrew in the Swimways Avengers 3-D Vest

    When you get Summer products to review in the Fall and Winter you often forget about getting that review posted. This was the case with the Swimways Avengers 3-D Swim VestTM. We received a Large Hulk one for free for Andrew to test out and use. Opinions are our own.

    This past week we were on the Cape for the 4th of July and we spent plenty of time at the beach. Our beach now allows kids to wear swim vests and play on floats and more. This is something that we were excited about because Andrew isn’t the strongest swimmer but he does like to get out there and swim. There is always one of us in the water with him at all times watching to make sure that he is safe. With the Swimways Avengers 3-D Swim VestTM he can be much more independent swimmer. That is great for me because he isn’t hanging all over me, kicking me and grabbing on my already sunburned back. read more!

  • Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy

    I received a download code for Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy for free to play and review. Opinions are my own.

    I have never owned a Crash Bandicoot game and so I never played the game growing up. So I did not play each game as it came out and never experienced what it was like playing this character. However, now I can play the brand new game that has been released that not only has all three Crash Bandicoot games within it but a whole bunch of new content, too. There are new levels including one that was deemed too difficult to be added into the original game. That level is called Stormy Ascent and you can find it off a new path of N. Sanity Beach. This was left out of the original PS1 release.

    More about playing the game below.

  • Scott Lang Hope Van Dyne Hank Pym

    I was scanning Instagram yesterday and saw the very last thing of the ANT-MAN AND THE WASP movie and so I had to get to the theater before any other spoilers headed my way. So, I hopped on Fandango and grabbed a ticket for the 6:20pm show that night. I contacted my boss and said I was using some personal time at the last minute and got to the theater. Many times when I see movies I go first thing in the morning so I can watch the movie and sleep and then go to work. Yesterday, however, we were coming back from the Cape and I didn’t think I could catch the movie, but I did. I’m glad that I did. The movie was a great sequel and so much fun. Seeing it with a bunch of other people who were into it and laughing made it better.

    Before you see the movie check out this featurette. There are no spoilers in it, I assure you. Then I’ll tell you a bit more about the movie and what I thought.

    “Powers” featurette:

    From the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes ANT-MAN AND THE WASP, a new chapter featuring heroes with the astonishing ability to shrink.

  • The Grandkids at the Dartmouth Ave Parade

    Our annual trip down to the Cape for the Fourth of July holiday was a success. We came down on Tuesday morning in a heavy fog. It was so foggy that we could not see the Bourne Bridge until we were on it. The fog burned off later on though and we were able to enjoy a great day at the beach. We followed that with pizza for dinner on the sunporch. Then we went over to a family friend’s house for July 3rd party where the kids had some other kids to play with and also their cousins.

    Yesterday, we went to the annual Dartmouth Ave Parade where the kids enjoyed the entertainment and Andrew got up to tell a joke. what a difference a year makes. This year he ran on up to the table and hopped up, took the microphone and confidently told his jokes.
