Dinosaur Fun at The Field Station

The Field Station is one of the places I have been wanting to take the kids to but just haven't had the chance to until this past weekend. I had purchased tickets on Groupon back in May and originally wanted to surprise Ayden on his Birthday with them but it was pouring rain. So I decided to just wait for the weekend that was nice with no plans and that was this past weekend. The boys were so excited and couldn't wait to learn and explore everything about Dinosaurs. Ayden's first reaction was that we have made it to Jurassic Park. I couldn't stop laughing when he said that because he was so serious and mentioned he wanted to see the Raptor's trainers. I was praying that he wouldn't be disappointed because seriously kid Raptor trainers are only in the movies.

Ruffle Bathing Suit + Body Positivity

Its Summer Time and that means its bathing suit season. Like most women I dread this time of year. It doesn't matter if I have been watching my figure aka dieting or working out I always just dread having to think about wearing a swim suit. I will say it flat out I am always going to be my worse critique and there is always something that I do not like about my body. I have come to terms with it and like I said it does not matter if I am in the best shape ever I still find something that I do not like. I know that some of you can relate to this.

Hippo-Sized Fun at The Adventure Aquarium in NJ

Have you ever seen a Hippo up close? Last week we were invited to come check out the Hippo Festival at the Adventure Aquarium here in NJ where we met Button & Genny. I have never seen a Hippo up close before so it was super cool to see not only one but two of them. We learned about each of the hippos and their journey to the Adventure Aquarium. The kids participated by placing some fun facts on a time line as the animal experts were telling us all about Button & Genny's life journey. We learned so much about them from the animal experts that it left us wanting to learn more.
 The boys were so interested in knowing all about Button & Genny that they were not shy at all when it came to asking the experts their questions.
