Disneyland~Xbox Game

So yesterday was my hubby's birthday & I still hadn't bought him a gift, so me & my baby girl took a ride to ToysRus.  He loves playing xbox and there was a Star Wars game that he wanted.  These games are so expensive that we only buy them for special occasions like birthdays or holidays.  Now toysRus is having a sale this week-you buy one at regular price & get a second for 40% off, so I began looking for something that the rest of us would enjoy too.  I love the kinect games because you have to move to play the game, so this is the type of game I was looking for.  Then, there it was!! The Disneyland game for 19.99 and I would get 40% off of that.....I was soooo getting it!

Now we couldn't play yesterday because it was hubby's birthday but there was no excuses this morning!  I popped it in so I could play with my daughter.  Now, I don't usually touch hubby's Xbox so I got everything running but for some reason the Kinect sensor was having trouble detecting us.  It became so frustrating that when I saw that it did detect my daughter, I just sat down and helped my daughter play the game.  We wanted to play together, but my main goal was to find a game that she'd be happy with and boy, was she happy :)

She played for over an hour and it was hysterical.  She was in Disneyland!!! After the whole kinect sensor debacle, the game was very easy to play.  After a while she didn't need my help at all.....she knew where to go and since she now knows how to read, she knew what she needed to look for and where she had to go.  She was very good at following directions.   Her favorite part was giving the characters a hug!!! So cute!!

I definitely recommend buying this game if you have kids who love Disney.  It is fairly easy to play, especially if the kids can read, but if not you can read any instructions to them.  Most of the time, the characters tell you what they want you to look for and where to go......It really is a great game.  Her only complaint is that her arm was tired, since she had to keep her arm in front of her to move her character in the game.

This was the best money spent on a game so far!!!  Even I like it, but that's probably because it is a Disney game :)

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…
