Backyard Safari Toy Review from Summit toys- GIVEAWAY

Thank you Summit Toys for sending me part of the Backyard Safari Collection to review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions are 100% mine.  

If you have not taken a moment and looked through all the gear that the Backyard Safari collection offers kids then go and take a moment.  I think it wold be called something like endless fun because they have it all.  

My box of goodies came on the perfect day.  We were getting ready to paint the church building and I needed some toys to keep my kids happy and playing instead of painting.  

My kids immediately took on the role of a bug finder.  My daughter put on her new safari vest and my son grabbed the bug Lazer Light Bug Vac.  The two set out for finding bugs.

The first bug hunt was a success!  The kids found some rollie polie's, a leaf bug, a couple spiders, and flies.  

I was really caught off guard at how much fun my daughter had with this.  I never thought my girly girl would want to touch bugs but she had no fear and loved it.  

My son on the other hand acted a little more scared.  He made me chuckle when he tried to catch a bug with his vac and the bug got away and his body did one of those shiver shake because he did not want the bug to get on him.  It was a good laugh.  

My son likes to play with the vac gun but anytime his sister catches a bug he runs away screaming with some fear.  I wonder if my daughter scared him and threw a bug on him but I hope his fear goes away soon. 

I hope you all enter to win some Backyard Safari toys from Summit Toys.  Use the easy rafflecopter form to enter the giveaway. Your child will have a fun time but also be learning a lot about nature in the process, a win win combination.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
