  • Today we enjoyed Eva’s last day before the start of school by using our latest Cooper & Kid Cooper Kit. This one was called Wilderness Walkabout and had a bunch of fun things inside all to do with survival. We did a bunch of the recipes that were found in the kit including the main dish that Eva, Allison and Andrew are assembling which is Hobo Dinner. Hobo Dinner is great because you pretty much put what you want into a foil packet and put it on the grill for a half hour and you are good to go. The kids enjoyed the meal very much. We made it extra special by eating on the ground outside in the little half tent that the kids have.

    For my full review of the Cooper Kit, check out my latest Cooper & Kid post.

  • SlugTerra Return of the Elementals poster

    I watched and reviewed this movie a while back but never got a chance to see it in the theater. Slugterra: Return of the Elementals was fun and I hope that this is not the absolute last that we see of Eli Shane and the Shane Gang. I’ll be getting a copy of the movie to review and one to give away possibly.

    Here is a clip from the movie.

  • My Loot Crate came with this amazing Funko Glow-In-The-Dark Groot figure. He’s the favorite character of my kids. Because I went to California for the Guardians of the Galaxy press tour and have been talking to the kids a lot about the movie and the characters they know all about Groot and what put them over the top was the dancing baby Groot video. They were very disappointed when I took Groot to work with me. I may just have to take him home so they can enjoy him, too.
