Javi's Alfajpores is a perfect treat #review #ad

Image
Have you ever heard of alfajores? It was new to me when I received an email introducing them to me...     but I am glad I gave it a try!  We were sent several to try... along with Dulce De Leche.  YUM!!!!!Alfajores: (From Wikipedia)  An alfajor or alajú is a traditional confection found in Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Paraguay, Colombia, Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, Andorra, Spain, Venezuela, Southern France, Southern Brazil and the Philippines. The archetypal alfajor entered Iberia during the period of al-Andalus. It is produced in the form of a small cylinder and is sold either individually or in boxes containing several pieces. Dulce De Leche : (from Wikipedia) 
Dulce de leche is a confection from Latin America prepared by slowly heating sweetened milk to create a substance that derives its flavor from the Maillard reaction, also changing color. Dulce de leche is Spanish for "candy of milk"

Army Aviation Museum on Dothan Alabama @visit_dothan

Image
If you know my boy, you know I have raised him to be thankful and appreciative of our military.  When I found out there was an Army Aviation Museum near Dothan, I knew that I would do anything in my power to get him there to see what all was inside.  The first day, we got there and it was almost closing time, so we planned to go back the next day.  Seeing his excitement and interest in everything made it totally worth while... but let me just tell you ...  This is not like any musuem I have been in before!  It was awesome!  
He was so excited to check it all out!  
This was the Hall of Heroes.  No, I don't need any comments on her mask.. We were constantly trying to fix it for her, this was when we first got in side. 
I thought this was so cool. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE HOT AIR BALLOONS... and I had no idea they were first used in the military!  
One of the first planes. 
She was excited as she thought the map of the museum was a treasure map!  Again, no need to comment on the mask.  

It was a…

Short Trip to Dothan, Alabama @visit_dothan

Image
Let me tell you about a little trip I took the kids on recently.  
We had planned to go on 2 different vacations this year, but COVID had other plans.  We ended up taking a short over night trip, just to get a change of scenery for the kids and I... and lucky for us, my mom decided to join us!  I don't know of every going to Dothan and hanging out, but it was a fun little trip.  
We loaded up and started our journey with a much needed family break planned.  We went not really knowing much about Dothan, but we wanted to see what it was all about.  

Once we got to Dothan, we took a visit to the Botanical Gardens.  It was outdoors and we were the only people there, so it was great.  They were doing things on the honor system, so we paid at a cash box and was able to stroll around and enjoy at our own pace... It was hotter than I don't even know, so we didn't stay as long as I would have liked.  BUT .. it was beautiful.   I will be honest, there were lots of areas that were really…

Look, See the Farm - #SummerReading #ad

Image
Another book to share with you is Look, See the Farm. I thought that this was going to be more of a see the cow, it moo's.  See the duck, it quacks kind of book.  I was wrong!  This book talks about the different birds on the farm.  We have a couple bird feeders / bird houses in our yard, so this is a fun one for us!  The illustrations are great!

Someone say Dance Party? @TrollsWorldTour #ad

Image
When the first Trolls movie came out, we were so excited.  We loved that movie and have so many toys/ coloring pictures/ memories singing the songs and quoting right along with the movie. We had planned on seeing Trolls World Tour in the theater... but COVID had other plans.  We have been planning to have a movie night to watch at home, but life has been a bit chaotic lately and we have yet to make the time to do that. With so many great activities that have been shared with me, I wanted to share with you and hopefully make plans to do the activities and then have movie night to enjoy.  (Can't beat the DANCE PARTY EDITION.)

Update/ Repost - Heat things Up with @PlayingWithFire - #familymovienight #Ad

UPDATED TO ADD:
Back in February we had a movie night and enjoyed Playing With Fire... I figured since we were going to pull the yard game out today to enjoy the Fourth Of July, it was a great time to remind you of this movie!  Since many places are cancelling fireworks tonight, maybe you can watch this and make it a movie night?

When the older boys were younger, they were obsessed with watching WWE wrestling.  I watched with them and became a fan of John Cena.  Lucky for me, he started starring in more movies and while our days of watching wrestling are in the past, we can all still enjoy him showing his talent on screen!  We have made it a point of going to the movies at last once a month as a family.  While we did not see this one in theaters, it was on our list to try and do so..  To say that I was happy to review it would be an understatement. We were sent a viewing kit to make a weekend out of it.  Flavored popcorn was a hit with everyone and might be a tradition worth s…

Little People Big Dreams - Audrey Hepburn #SummerReading #ad

Image
I have always told both of my children that they can be anything they want if they put their heart and soul into it.  It doesn't hurt to dream... and when you dream you need to dream big!!!   There are so many male figures front and center for boys to look up to, but it seems as though females don't get the recognition they deserve.  I was excited to see a new series of books:  Little People, Big Dreams!
