Biloxi with kids? Yes! #MakingMemories #hosted

Image
People always seem to look surprised when I tell them we plan a yearly trip to Biloxi.  They are quick to ask, "With your kids?  What do you do?"  So I thought it would be nice to share again just what our Biloxi trip looks like each year.  I have posted before (and shared on INSTAGRAM) but thought I would share a few more pictures from our last trip.

Let me start by saying that I have been going to Biloxi for years.  I love it there and now it is a fun place that my kids look forward to visiting each year as well.  We plan a trip at some point each summer and normally my parents go as well. We make the most out of it, but unfortunately, my parents were not able to go this year.  To catch you all up, mom was diagno…

@BeauBiloxi doesn't disappoint with 2019 #Lunaro #Hosted

Each year, we plan a trip to Biloxi at some part over the summer.  I honestly don't know how many years we have been going, but the Beau Rivage has always been in our lives!  I remember going back when it was on a boat, long before Hurricane Katrina.  Each year we try and do as much fun things as possible and people always ask... "Biloxi, with kids?"  It is surprising how much there is to do there.  Now, don't get me wrong, I love the casino... but there is more there than that!  This year, we planned our trip and I had everything figured out... except the weather!!!  Hurricane Barry headed there at the same time we did... but we still went! Just had to change the plans a bit.  One thing that didn't change?  Us getting to see a great show at "The Beau!"

Newest Release in Walt Disney Signature Collection - #Cinderella #Ad

Image
Being a mom is one of the greatest blessings in my life.  I love my two children more than they will ever know.  Each one brings joy and excitement in what they like and dislike.  Broxton had Disney movies that were/are his favorite and now Savannah is coming more and more into her own as well.  She loves her a wide variety of characters, but it melts this mama's heart when she wants to play princess.  My brother gave her a dress up box of Princess clothes a few years ago and of course her theme for a birthday party was princess last year.  When Disney announced they were releasing an Anniversary Edition of Cinderella, I knew I wanted to add it to the collection.  To say we have watched it once or twice would be an understatement!

We finally saw @Dumbo and loved it. #ad

We have been trying to be better at going to the movies to see all of these wonderful movies that keep being released.  Thing is, it gets rather expensive when you buy the tickets and then what movie watching is complete without drinks and snacks?!?  We had totally planned on going to see Dumbo, but the weekend we got there to get tickets, we realized it had already left the theaters! 
I honestly don't know who was more excited to see it... The kids, my mom or myself.  Either way, we were all so excited to learn that we would be getting it for review.  That just turned in to all of us watching the mail to see when it would show up.  We have been dealing with things at home (more on that later) so this was a great distraction for all of us and we were ready for this family movie night!

Crazy Socks and Awareness #wordlesswednesday

Image
One thing I love about living in a smaller town?  Community support.  There have been a few kids that have been sick down here and to say that the community supports them is an understatement.  We have worn yellow for a child, worn super hero shirts for another.  This was crazy sock day for World Down Syndrome Day.  I have told Broxton that although we might not know them personally, it shows that we are thinking and praying for them and their family.  I could not imagine, but it is nice to see the support around town!  

Bowling for the win? #wordlesswednesday

Image
I just thought this was too cute.  Her little bowling shoes! 
Do you bowl?  Are you good? 
Last time we went, I actually started off with like 3 strikes in a row and was pretty impressed, then I got annoyed and from that point on my game went down the gutter, just like my ball.  (Mom Joke, see what I did there?!) 


What do you do for fun on the weekends? 

We are having a #Giveaway @WonderParkMovie #Ad

There is a particular quote that has stayed with me lately... 
"We may not have it all together, but together we have it all.."  Those that know me, know that my kiddos are the most important thing to me.  I really will say that they are my everything and my biggest pride.  We might not do as much as we used to, but one thing for certain is we love, love, LOVE family movie night.  There really is nothing like getting snacks and drinks and then snuggling up to watch a movie with these guys!  I mean, we have plenty of furniture, but they like to sit as close as possible as if we only own 1 chair and that is all we are allowed to sit on!
Recently, we were sent a Wonder Park DVD and family survival kit for review.  I know we planned on seeing it at the movies, but lets be real... It gets rather pricey if we want to go and see ALL the movies that are available.  Also, it isn't as "snuggly" in the theater as it is at home, if I am being totally honest!  The kit was ful…
