Disney has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember... I remember looking back on photos of my parents on their trip to Disney... Photos of when I was at Disney... Photos of when we took the boys to Disney... Not to mention our LOVE of pretty much all Disney Movies!!!  Well, we are so lucky to have been given the chance to add Disney Books to our home library now!!   I have posted a couple of the books we have been able to review - from Sophia the First ,  Jake and the Neverland Pirates and even Minnie Mouse ... But don't you worry - there are still many more to come!  Up now, we have two new books....

From Frozen - An Amazing Snowman - this book is just too cute to me... But I have to be honest, I LOVE Olaf... He is just adorable and it makes me love the movie Frozen even more so...
In this book, we learn just how AMAZING Olaf is...   He walks and talks... and (my favorite) he sees the best in everyone... and finds beauty in every day.  Although this books is "about" Olaf, we get to see the rest of the cast from Frozen and that right there is enough to make all Frozen Fans LOVE this book!!!


 The Pirate Fairy Read Along Storybook and CD was the other book.  Now, I will admit that we have not taken advantage of the CD in here yet, but we have read the book  and both of us enjoyed it... Yes, it has fairies in there - so I loved it.. but it also has Pirates and Broxton was pretty excited about that!!! In this book, one of the fairies gets in a bit of trouble and when that happens, she packs up and leaves...  You have to read the book to see what happens!!!  But, from the notes, it says that the CD will have narration, sound effects and even "original movie voices!"  Sounds pretty awesome to me!!!!

If you are looking for a couple books to add to an Easter basket - or to plan a road trip bag... Why not look at these???  They can be shared between all the kids!!!!

A couple of days ago, Broxton was not really feeling great... He acted sort of out of it... and he never really asks to watch TV that much...  As soon as he got home from school, he asked if he could watch Bubble Guppies - I was so happy that we had recently been sent their newest DVD... Bubble Guppies Animals Everywhere.  Of course, I put it on for him and he sat there- zoned in to watching it (that is another thing that never really happens... He is always so busy!)   This would be a great addition for an Easter Basket or even a good go to movie for any road trips planned - think Spring Break or Summer Vacation!!!!

The Dinosaurs Are Coming! #ExtremeDinos @DinosaurAtlanta #Giveaway #MakingMemories

Opening March 29, 2014 in Atlanta at Atlantic Station - Extreme Dinosaurs are headed our way!!!  Luckily for dinosaur fans that do not live in Atlanta, this is an exhibit that will be here for a limited time.  (It is set to close the start of January 2015.)  With these dates, you can schedule a vacation this summer to come and check it out - or you can plan a weekend getaway at any time!   I know with Broxton being a fan of dinosaurs, he will be excited when I take him to see this new to Atlanta event!  

About the Extreme Dinosaurs Exhibit:Extreme Dinosaurs gathers some of the world's strangest dinosaurs in an experience that showcases the stories behind their unique appearance. Guests are immersed in a naturalistic landscape filled with 17 lifelike and life-size animatronic dinosaurs that roar, snarl, open their jaws, blink their eyes, move their limbs and much more. Featuring some of the newest dinosaur finds from the current “Golden Age” of paleontology, the exhibition includes life-size animatronic models, skeletons, real fossils and fossil replicas including a favorite of younger guests, dinosaur dung.


I remember as a kid, my neighbor and I caught a lizard... We ran home all excited to tell our parents that we had caught a dinosaur!  I actually told Broxton this story and he was so excited, wanting to see a dinosaur of his own too!  I had to tell him that I was wrong and that it was not a real dinosaur, but just a lizard.. We laughed.  I hope that when he is older, he can look back and tell his kids that while his Mama thought she caught a dinosaur as a kid...  He got to go to an exhibit to see life-size /lifelike dinosaurs.    Remember, I am all about #makingmemories and I think that this is a great one for us!!!

Take a look at the images that were supplied to us.  It looks like it is going to be a ton of fun, as well as very educational!  



Now, I get to give one lucky winner a family 4 pack of tickets to attend this exhibit.
You get to choose the date that is best for you, but remember - this is ONLY for the EXTREME DINOSAURS ONLY.  Also, keep in mind this is a limited time event, so you have to set a date soon!
