Tie Dye with the Kids!


I know it has been awhile since I posted a fun project that I have done with the kids.  SORRY!   We really have had some fun this summer but it has been difficult to post them because we have been so busy!  




At Christmas my daughter got a little set for tie-dye and we made three different types of shirts!   They turned out great and the kids had fun spraying their shirts.  



SUPER CUTE if you ask me!  :)   I want to do it again because it is simple and fun! 

Daddy Time




Yes, you can sneak in daddy time even with random house chores.   Daddy had to take a break from mowing to get some gas so the kiddos took a little ride with daddy.

Back to School Giant Microbes GIVEAWAY

It's Back to School Time!

Germs will be all over so it's time to review hand washing and sneezing in our arms with the kiddos.  Make sure you also enter the giveaway at the bottom to win Anti Bacterial Wipes and Cold Putty from Microbes.  




Common Cold Primordial Putty contains one collectible GIANTmicrobes® figure packaged in orange putty, and comes with a label with an image and information about the microbe it represents!

The following characters are now available for GIANTmicrobes® Primordial Putty: Anthrax, Black Death, Ebola and Flesh Eating. Which are joined by our latest set: Amoeba, Chickenpox, Common Cold and Mad Cow. Collect them all!


Keeping your hands clean is the best way to stay healthy!

I enjoy using these wipes on my tables and chairs and light switches to erase the germs around.   My kids thought the cold putty was strange looking but it was a good item to pair with when talking germs and colds.  I am hoping to find some good books that talk about colds and illnesses to use this putty as a prop such as the book, How Do Dinosaurs Get Well Soon or The Berestain Bears Go to the Doctor.  


Enter the GIVEAWAY 
Yes, we are giving away the wipes and the cold putty to one lucky winner to help you prepare for the back to school grind.

2014 Ice Cream Tour #10- Maggie Moo's


Maggie Moo's is a fun shop with bright colors and much to catch kids eyes and attention.  

I had never heard of Maggie Moo's until moving to Iowa so it was a mystery as to what it truly was until going inside.  

I would compare Maggie Moo's to Coldstone as they use a stone and mix in toppings like them.  



 The ice cream choices looked good but the colors looked much brighter.   I did not ask about artificial colors but I'm going to assume they are using some...or a lot!   I was not impressed with the flavors and overall.  I have visited Maggie Moo's two times but both times left unsatisfied.   








2014 Ice Cream Tour #9- Dairy Queen


I grew up eating Dairy Queen.   My mom got me hooked on the Health blizzards as those were my mom's favorites!  The Dairy Queen we went to was in our Mall and it was National Ice Cream Day!  :)




I actually changed it up and had a Peanut Butter Cup pie blizzard...keeping it peanut butter still!  :)   I enjoyed it but I kinda missed the Health!  I will always enjoy Dairy Queen because of my childhood memories.  

Review: Ozeri WeightMaster 400 lbs Digital Bath Scale with BMI and Weight Differential Detection


Product Description

The Ozeri WeightMaster 400 lbs Digital Bath Scale with BMI and Weight Differential Detection was designed and engineered in the USA to provide a comprehensive yet simple weight management solution to measure and track your weight. Featuring BMI Measurement and Auto Recognition Technology, the Ozeri WeightMaster weighs up to 400 lbs and displays your BMI (Body Mass Index), a measure of your body fat based on your height and weight. Immediately after displaying your weight and BMI, the scale's Weight Differential Detection displays your "net weight change" from your last weigh-in (L1), the average of your last 3 weigh-ins (L3), and last 7 weigh-ins (L7). By measuring your weight once a day, the Ozeri WeightMaster empowers you to see how your current weight changes day to day, from the last 3 days, and over the previous week. For users who would rather just focus on their weight trend without worrying so much about the actual numbers, the WeightMaster features Color Alert Technology, which displays your weight change in a GREEN illumination for weight loss and RED for weight gain, providing a visual form of intuitive feedback. With built-in intelligence, the WeightMaster requires no complicated synching and spares you the data connection failures common to more expensive wireless and Bluetooth alternatives. Precision engineered and durably made, WeightMaster auto-calibrates with StepOn technology and auto-powers off to preserve battery life. The Ozeri WeightMaster is made out of impact-resistant tempered glass, and equipped with non-slip scratch-resistant feet that won't damage flooring. Ships with batteries included, and backed by Ozeri's 100% Hassle-Free Satisfaction Guarantee.
My Review:
Yes, I have reviewed a couple of Ozeri scales and like the last one this scale is fantastic and keeping records of your weigh in to help you focus on your goals.   It feels rotten when the color turns red and you have gained weight.  The scale also gives you the BMI number which is a great addition to a scale.   We wall want to have a healthy BMI!  
Overall the scale is nice looking and has extra features that many scales don't provide.
