Disney Planes Fire and Rescue

Disney's Planes, Dusty Crophopper, is back for a second installment with Planes Fire and Rescue.  With many of the original movies characters and several new friends, Dusty takes in a whole new road to success.  Disclaimer, this is a sponsored post.  We were provided tickets to view the movie in exchange for this review.  All thoughts and opinions are our own. Planes Fire and Rescue starts with Dusty practicing his racing near his home airport.  The brave little plane is pushing himself to the limits and redlining his engine.  Dusty performs an extreme maneuver by using his speed to race to one of the highest altitudes he has ever seen when he suddenly experiences engine trouble and stalls.  Dusty starts falling out of the sky, he lands but needs help.  After visiting the doctor, Dusty is told that he can no longer race and must keep his engine RPMs under the redline. Dusty is depressed and scared because if he races, his engine could seize and the type of engine he has i

Knott's Berry Farm Camp Snoopy Parody.

We recently visited Knott's Berry Farm with friends and family. T he day was full of fun moments and comfort food. It truly was a fun day. There were so many silly moments that it reminded me of our favorite book, "If You Give A Mouse A Cookie." One of  Southern California’s best amusement parks  and the most popular book make for a fun post that will make you smile and laugh. I hope you enjoy the parody. My intent is to make you fall in love with two of my favorite things. Disclaimer: FTM received complimentary tickets to the park. No compensation of cash was received. All thoughts and opinions are all my own. When you go to visit Knott’s Berry Farm chances are that you will want to go to Camp Snoopy. There, you will go on (3) new rides, Charlie Brown’s Kite, Linus Launcher and Pig Pen Mud Buggies.   As you get off Charlie Brown’s ride, you will notice your stomach is hungry, so you will walk over to the fruit stand.   There you will buy a pickle and a drink

Tropical Summer Picnic Fun with Rio the Movie.

Summer is here and we are celebrating with the movie Rio and a tropical picnic. To get started, we went flower picking in our neighborhood looking for the most tropical floral bouquet we could find.  Next, we shopped for groceries for our picnic.  Finally, we got comfortable in our living room and watched the movie Rio .  Disclosure: No monetary compensation was received. A copy of the movie was sent for review. All thoughts and opinions are all my own. Flower gathering and decorating was so much fun for the entire family.  First, we went for a walk on the local trail and found these large Hibiscus bushes filled with different colored flowers.  This gave us a chance to play and talk about plants and bugs.  The colors that we found were bright  yellow, ruby red, vanilla white and a gorgeous puff pink flower.  We rushed home to put them in water and display them on our picnic table.  One word of c aution, these flowers are homes to a variety of tiny bugs.  Clean them careful
