Treasure Hunters Book Review

Treasure Hunters: Perils At The Top Of the World is the brand new book out by renowned author James Patterson. Featuring a brand new adventure with the Kidd Family

After their adventures in China and Germany, the Kidd family is ready for some rest and relaxation. But when you’re an ace treasure hunting team, there’s always another adventure waiting around the corner! This time, the Kidds head to Russia where a set of priceless paintings by Leonardo da Vinci and Rembrandt has gone missing. Hot on the trail of the daring thieves, the Kidds race through the sinister streets of St. Petersburg and the wild Arctic tundra to track down the stolen treasure.

My daughter got a late start on this book but hasn’t been able to put it down, she loves to read and loves adventure stories.

Review written by my daughter age: 11

Treasure Hunters is all about a secret spy family trying to fight bad guys, and get stolen art back to their rightful owners as they are also on vacation. They like to travel across the world! The twins are complete opposites, and Storm has a photographic memory. Their brother is always on the hunt trying to attract ladies and be silly. The parents are retired C.I.A. Agents and together as a family they like to catch criminals, including a lot of close call situations where they almost got hurt.

I haven’t been able to put the book down. I can’t wait to see what happens on the next page, and the book makes me laugh. This book is perfect for anyone who likes adventure.

Peter and The Wolf In Hollywood App Review

Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood is a revival of the classic Peter and the Wolf tale brought to you by acclaimed production company, Giants Are Small. This version brings Peter to Hollywood to meet his hippie grandfather while bringing classical music elements to life. Peter, along with all of the characters in the movie book, are narrated and brought to life by Rock n’ Roll legend, Alice Cooper.

In the app you can play games, and behind the scene extras, all while following along to this beloved classic. My kids really enjoyed this app. They followed along and laughed while enjoying the vibrant colors and story.

I got to share wth my kids the story about the Narrator Alice Cooper and how I met him several times as a child at church functions and conferences. They were amazed to learn how talented he really is.

The app is great but I think geared towards the younger age. I would love to see them add a more educational side to the app and a few more games or quizzes about the story for older kids.
I do love the resources that it adds for parents to learn more about the story and features throughout the app.

You can learn more about Peter and the Wolf In Hollywood app here.

Premama is the Only Vitamin You Can Drink GiveawayClosed

When I was pregnant with my first I had 9 months of sickness. It was horrible, the prenatal vitamins that were recommended just made more more sick, or I would choke on them because they were to big to swallow. At the time the only thing the doctor could recommend using instead were kids Flinstone’s vitamins. I felt a bit foolish having to take them as I was a adult, but whatever gave me the vitamins I needed.

Now there is Premama, the first and only prenatal vitamin you can drink.

Premama was designed to solve the problem of women not receiving proper nutrition during pregnancy due to their inability to swallow prenatal pills. In addition to providing a better nutrient delivery system, Premama incorporates clinically-studied blends of folate and iron for increased absorption, less side effects and overall improved health during pregnancy.

Coppertone is still Fun even without the Sun

This summer I had the honor of being a Coppertone Mom, I was able to try out some great Coppertone products.

As an end of Summer gift Coppertone sent me a few goodies. They sent me a bucket and shovel, some balloons, temporary tattoos, and a Coppertone bag

Summer is over here in NY, so we have not been able to test out the bucket and shovel at the beach just yet. My kids are loving the balloons and temporary tattoos, they have actually gone a little overboard with the tattoos.

My absolute favorite goody would be the bag, It is so big and can carry a lot. It was my life saver during Hurricane Sandy. We lost power for 2 weeks, and had to stay in temporary housing. The bag held all of our non-perishables that we took with us.

I love being a Coppertone Mom, and their products. I grew up in Arizona and now living a few miles from the beach, I am always concerned about skin protection for my family. Coppertone has so many varieties of sun-tan lotion, for kids, adults, sensitive skin and more.

Now I am busy gearing up for next summer!

Get All The Technology You Need For Back To School Gift Card GiveawayClosed

This year I am the only one in the family not in school. I have a preschooler, 1st grader, 2nd grader and college student (husband).
my kids actually use technology more than I thought they would need to at their age. My daughter was assigned a biography project and she was on the computer looking up everything and printing it out.

My husband on the other hand uses everything since he is in graduate school. It’s hard to keep up with the demand of everything he needs. Laptops, printers and so much more. I always look at Walmart for everything I need to buy they have great prices. Just the other day I was looking into a HP e-all in one printer. It’s the one piece of technology we really need.You can print from your laptop, smartphone, or tablet from anywhere.
Plus they now have HP XL ink cartridges, which can give you 40% more ink before you have to refill.

I also looked into the their laptops they have a huge variety including the HP Pavillion Dv-6 Notebook, which has all the basic neccessities would need for school.  It comes with a webcam and Microsoft Word starter 2010, 2 main essentials for school. 8GB and it reads and writes CDs and DVDs.   This would be great to have on hand for the kids school projects.

I did a little video of all the Hp technology at my local Walmart.


To get you geared up for back to school I am giving away a $25 Walmart gift card to a lucky US reader.

To enter: Tell me the one piece of technology you could use for back to school?

Cadbury Ice Cream Tea Party #CadburyHighTea

We were able to host a Cadbury Ice Cream Tea party for a few of our friends. It was a fun experience.

Blue Bunny ice cream teamed up with Cadbury chocolate to bring you and your family the best new ice cream bars this summer. Cadbury Ice Cream Bars start with creamy Blue Bunny ice cream and then are dipped in thick, rich, Cadbury milk chocolate coating! Cadbury Ice Cream Bars are just the right size and with eight in a box your whole family can enjoy them!

The Flavors:

  • Caramello
  • Double Chocolate
  • Vanilla Chocolate
  • Chocolate almond

We decided to have a tea party to introduce the new ice cream, since it is a british company it fit.

It was so cute and fun. We set up the tea sets and hats for all our friends. With summer in full swing, only a few people showed up but we still made the best of it.

We had our the party at the park since it was such nice day, minus the 95 degree heat.  The girls loved the hats.

The ice cream was such a big hit,especially with my kids the ice cream was gone so fast. My favorite would be the Caramello, vanilla ice cream dipped in chocolate, with carmel swirls inside. It is so good!, I love carmel so it’s the perfect ice cream for me.

My favorite part besides the ice cream would have to be the hats, they are just so cute.
