Disneynature’s PENGUINS Launches First Trailer to Celebrate Earth Day!!!

Disneynature’s all-new feature film PENGUINS is a coming-of-age story about an Adélie penguin named Steve who joins millions of fellow males in the icy Antarctic spring on a quest to build a suitable nest, find a life partner and start a family. None of it comes easily for him, especially considering he's targeted by everything from killer whales to leopard seals, who unapologetically threaten his happily ever after. 

From the filmmaking team behind BEARS and CHIMPANZEE, Disneynature’s PENGUINS opens in theaters nationwide in time for Earth Day 2019.

5 Tips for an Extraordinary Getaway to Los Angeles

After spending a week in Mexico for Spring Break we are planning our Summer vacation.  This year the kids and I are heading back to Los Angeles to spend some time with my brother.

As much as we love visiting LA, it's really a lot of fun to visit with him since he lived there for nearly 15 years.  He is wise when it comes to all things L.A. and helps his big sis - moi - maximize my travel dollars.  Traveling with a family of six has its challenges, first and foremost being space.  There is no way our family could call a hotel suite home for a vacation and staying with him is out of the question.  We need space and lots of it.

The Diva Me loves staying in places with a resort type flair.  I have to have a place with all the amenities of home - i.e. dishwasher, washer/dryer, full kitchen, etc. - and a few things we DON'T have at home like an in-ground pool, ocean view, etc.

When visiting L.A. we love to glam it up and search listings of Los Angeles mansions for rent.  You'd …

@DisneyHyperion Releases A Friendly Town That’s Almost Always by the Ocean! Review

Many thanks to Disney Hyperion for providing this book for review. All opinions are mine.
If I could sum up Fox and Coats new book A FRIENDLY TOWN THAT’S ALMOST ALWAYS BY THE OCEAN! in 3 simple words I would say "Embrace your YOUness"
In A FRIENDLY TOWN THAT’S ALMOST ALWAYS BY THE OCEAN! (Disney-Hyperion; On Sale: April 17, 2018) by Kir Fox (aka Kirsten Hubbard) and M. Shelley Coats (aka Michelle Schusterman), Davy’s fifth grade class uncovers the secrets of their peculiar town in a series of linked tales that pair the whimsy of Sideways Stories from Wayside School with the delightful eeriness of Welcome to Night Vale. Welcome to Topsea, the strangest place you'll ever visit. In this town, the coves are bottomless and the pier has no end in sight. There's a high tide and a low tide... and a vanishing tide. Dogs are a myth, but mermaids are totally real. And seaweed is the main ingredient in every meal—watch out, it might just start chewing you back!

Disney Pixar’s INCREDIBLES 2 Hits Theatres Everywhere June 15th! Check out this exclusive trailer #Incredibles2

In INCREDIBLES 2, Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell), Dash (voice of Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack—whose super powers are about to be discovered. 

Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) by their side. That’s what makes this family so Incredible.

Hello Spring!

What a way to welcome Spring huh?  What about you?  What are your Spring travel plans?  Are you and the family hitting the road?  Catching a flight somewhere?  Where ya headed?

Nothing like a little extra spending money when on vacation and I am so excited for this Rain Rain Go Away! Giveaway Hop.  This is my 3rd year participating in this fun hop sponsored by The Mommy Island and The Kids Did It and each year it gets bigger and bigger.  

There are some really great prizes up for grabs and add some new blogs to your reading list plus your chance to win a $40 Visa eGift Card.  Why $40 you ask.  Well that's because I-40 is the interstate we typically travel to most of our Spring Break destinations.
