Sea Life Aquarium


My 10 year old is a huge animal fan. Animals of all type. Her absolute favorite is penguins. We did not see any penguins at the aquarium but we did get to see so many different water life.

As you go into the Sea Life area they take your picture. You can purchase this picture at the end of your "tour". I think they cost from $15-$30 depending on size.

After the picture they hand you a card with spaces to scratch off circles. As you go through the place there are questions, in certain sections. For each question you scratch off the correct circle. As you are leaving and are going through the gift shop you will get a free gift for turning this sheet in. The prize is a gold circle on a ribbon. Sort of like you discovered treasure


Then as you come around the corner there are bathrooms and a "touch" pond.


You can pet shrimp


starfish


sea anemone

This, in my opinion, was the girls favorite part of Sea Life.

I have always called my husband a lobster because lobsters mate or life. So seeing this big guy was sort of neat


My oldest loved the sea horses for the very same reason. I personally just thought she liked the sea horses because the male seahorse does all the baby dirty work.


There were so many neat sea creatures that it is hard to say if there was a real favorite. Oh yes, I loved the color changing jelly fish. If I can figure out how to upload a video I will post it on here. I could definitely sleep to them.

The sting ray were interesting to watch. But they all made me remember the death of Steve Irwin.


We can not go to a sea aquarium without remembering everyone's 2 favorite cartoon fish either. So...

"just keep swimming, just keep swimming"


and guess what? I found Nemo!



The kids all had fun with the "bubbles" that you were able to climb in and look out at the creatures.



There was so much to do and so much to see. Although it would have been cool to have other sea related things to do as you go along.



I took so many pictures and the kids had a lot of fun. My advise if you go is to take your time and enjoy all the special creatures.


At the end there was a play area for the kids which had slides and tubes to crawl in.


After you leave the play area you go into gift shop and then you are done.

Tickets starting at around $11

NEWLY DESIGNED! Cassani Fogless Shower Mirror

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.




Ok so, I have to admit, I really didn't think this would work. Even the glass of water I take into the bathroom with me during hot baths and showers, fogs up. So we get this mirror in the mail and immediately take it out and make the bathroom extremely hot. We turn on the hot water only and let it run. When the mirror, in the bathroom, was all fogged up good we look down and guess what? The Cassani Shower Mirror was still super easy to see. No fog just perfect sight to see yourself in. I definitely recommend this mirror. It is not heavy or breakable either.

Sleep Headphones Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.



The idea that you can wear these to sleep in is very true. These bedphones are lightweight and easy to forget that you have them in. Since I allowed my oldest teen to review this item, here are the things that she said.

These can either be for a boy/girl or man/woman, the colors are for both sexes

Since there is a built in, optional microphone, they are great for skyping or facetiming.

Has great sound quality

If you are in school, she says, that they are easy hidden behind your ear and under your hair. (not that I condone you hiding ear phones at school)

Great for running in also, as they do not fall out of the ears. There is a hook on them.

They come with an 2 extra sets of foam covers in different colors

Comes with a neat carry case and face mask for when you sleep


Why would you sleep without the sounds or music that you want to?

For just $59.95 on Amazon.com

you can purchase these great sleep headphones.

Do you travel a lot? These would be great for those late night flights

Beechnut Baby Food in New Jars Review


I love this cute little jar. The kids absolutely loved the taste of the 3 different flavors they got to taste.

We had about 5 families try this. Plus we passed some out to friends that couldn't show.


Each one of these boxes came with a coupon for $ off your next purchase. You can't beat that!


This little guy couldn't get enough!


These girls didn't get too messy but even our 19 month old dug the apples


Look at this beautiful face! Lil M loved the cherry flavor. She has just begun to be able to eat food by mouth and did awesome with it!

Thank you Moms Meet and Beechnut for letting be a part of this review and party!

Rainbow Bandz Organization Box Review


Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.


This organization box for your Rainbow Bandz is a great thing to have. Before we got this box, my daughters bandz were everywhere. I don't know how many times I have seen bright colors go into the vacuum canister. I have even been known to grab one of the bandz and you has a hair tie. This Rainbow Bandz Organization Box has removable plastic tabs. This helps in making sure that your spots are all the size you need. Not too big and not too little.


You can purchase this box from Amazon.com for $9.99 each.

http://www.amazon.com/Rainbow-Bandz-Organiziation-Box/dp/B00HUJNUSS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1401133240&sr=8-1&keywords=Rainbow+Bandz+Organiziation+Box

•Fits the Rainbow Loom Tool and has plenty of room for bands and connectors! Compartments keep parts separated and are adjustable with the 20 included dividers Compartment rows are 2 inches wide x 1.9 inches deep and 13-1/2 inches long maximum See thru plastic storage organizer case fits the Rainbow Loom and loom bands and clips!!

What I did find is that one of our looms fit and the other one didn't. It wasn't that big of a deal just letting you all know.


So, If you have bandz taking over your space, go buy an organizer box and clean it up!
