Madagascar 3

This weekend was kind of uneventful.  My daughter was the planner of the house this weekend and spent all week planning a movie outing with her BFF, Victoria!! These girls....SMH....only 6 years old and already making plans to hang out with each other.  Anyway, she came to me with her big blue eyes, asking if I would take her to see Madagascar 3 this weekend with her BFF, LOL!! So I texted her BFF's mom and we agreed to meet on Sunday at 10am!  I always prefer this time since the theater is empty, or so I thought.  I didn't realize that this was the opening weekend, so fortunately, I was there early.  We got our tickets, soda, slushy & popcorn and headed inside to grab our seats.  10 minutes after sitting down, people began arriving....I have never seen this theater get so full at 10:30 in the morning!! Wow!!!

So after 20-30 minutes of waiting, since we were there early, the movie begins.  Now I'm not a big fan of the Madagascar movies....actually I can't remember watching them at all!  I've seen bits & pieces but it was never a movie I sat down to watch from beginning to end.  With that said, I wasn't expecting much and I thought I would be bored but I actually enjoyed it!  It was funny, so colorful and the music was great.  Kids were laughing, dancing & singing along! My daughter enjoyed every second of it!!

I'm really glad that my baby girl planned this little play/movie was fun and since school is almost over, it was nice for her to spend some time with her friend who she probably won't see again until September.

I absolutely recommend this movie, it had my daughter's attention for the entire time & that doesn't happen often!!

Taking a Detour!!!!

So we are up & out of my dad's house by 7am.  It was hard and I tried to leave quickly, my poor baby girl even cried-I felt soooo bad for her.  Usually I'm the only one crying, but she really didn't want to leave :(  So,  we said goodbye-hope to be back soon (permanently) and we drove off!
About an hour out, we stopped for breakfast and had to practically make a run for it, LOL! There were like 20 buses full of kids!! By the time we got inside, the Dunkin Doughnuts line was like a mile long-ugh, there goes my coffee!  So we had no other choice but to eat burgers at Wendy's, everything else had super long lines that we didn't want to wait on!
We grabbed our burgers and left.  A little while later Laz asks me if I want to stop at Clearwater Aquarium.  At this point, I'm not 100% sure-I was sad about leaving & felt like just being home to calculate & come up with good, concrete reasons to move to Florida.  On the other hand, I really wasn't looking…

Weekend Trip to Niagara Falls, Canada~Part 2

Here is our 2nd day in Niagara Falls.  We started our morning with breakfast in the hotel restaurant.  After breakfast we headed over to Marineland.  This park was nothing spectacular, but it was a nice little trip.  We saw a dolphin show, saw several other animals, killer whales, fed Beluga whales and rode 1 or 2 rides.  Again, nothing spectacular but it was fun.  A lot of walking, and our favorite part was feeding the beluga whales - they were so cute!
The dolphin show was also fun!  Its been a long time since we've seen dolphins in action.

After all the walking, we were run down and hungry.  We headed back to the hotel to shower and prepare for our dinner at Massimmo's Italian restaurant.  The view was beautiful!  I enjoyed dinner, but hubby and baby girl didn't.  I like to try new things and unfortunately the other 2 don't - and there wasn't much on the menu that they liked.  Baby girl had Ceasar Salad, hubby had Minestrone soup and I had Linguine Carbonara.

Cooking Corner: Cookbook Challenge Day 1

Hi everyone!  I'm starting April with a little challenge for myself.  You are all welcome to join if you choose.  I have a rather large collection of recipes that I've never tried and since I started to declutter my life of things I don't need, this is one area that needs help. What do I need so many cookbooks and binders of recipes for? I don't know - it just takes up space and it's another thing for me to clean.  So, I decided that if I can't find good recipes that we love, there is no point in keeping the book or recipe.  I attempted this challenge a few years ago but never followed through.  This time, I intend to stick with it.
Here's my challenge:
Pick a book a month and try some recipes.
Decide what we like and what we don't.
If I have at least 15 recipes that we like, the book stays.  If not, I'll just copy the few recipes we liked and get rid of the book.
Not sure what I'll do with the book yet.  I'll figure it out at the end of th…
