Father's Day at Maquoketa Caves

I am so proud of myself for planning a great adventure for our family to surprise my awesome hubby on Father's Day.  I asked around and found a great state park not very far from our house.   We went to Maquoketa Caves in Iowa.  

It was spectacular and I can't wait to go again- next time we are going all out and buying head lights to go deeper into some of the caves! 

Here is the happy family out hiking and exploring!   I was very proud of my kids for being brave and doing a lot of walking.  

This is looking out from inside the huge opening of one of the caves.   It was so peaceful!

This picture is one of the views as we were walking down to get to one of the bigger caves.  

This boulder was huge and just balancing on this small section of rock.   It was very neat!

I just enjoyed the green in this picture and looking up!  

They are becoming best friends!  

Following daddy across the stream!   We had some awesome leap frog-ers!  

Happy Father's Day to the best daddy ever!   Hope you had a great day!

I could go on sharing more and more pictures but I will stop and just let you know that if you are ever in Iowa this is one place I highly recommend!   It was free too!!  :)

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,
