Fun Big Game football printable activity for kids with Goldfish CrackersWho’s ready for the Big Game?? In all honesty, I am not super into football but I love hanging out with family and friends so it is just another reason to have a gathering, right?

We watched a college football game the other night and while my oldest son and husband were completely enthralled in the football game, my younger kids were over it. “Mooooom! This is so boring!” is just one of the phrases we heard during the game. They just wanted to do something else. This was supposed to be a family activity and if we all were in separate rooms doing completely different things it would kind of defeat the point of “family time.” I wondered if this would repeat itself during the Big Game. I didn’t want the kids to be bored, but I still wanted us to be together as a family.  I know it is cheesy but my husband and his dad and brothers would watch football all the time. It is one of his favorite memories. While I don’t particularly love football I just like doing stuff with the family. So I thought I’d use some Goldfish® crackers and my love for drawing together to make something entertaining for my kids. Continue reading The Big Game “Find It” Printable Football Edition

Seattle Fun: Christmas Time at Pacific Place

Christmas in Seatte- Pacific Place fun It’s Christmas time in the city! We are going on our 3rd year here in Seattle but this is the first time we will be here for Christmas. The past couple of years we have had so much fun getting to know our city and have these favorite Christmas traditions but this year we will have more time to enjoy them.

This post was sponsored by Pacific Place but all opinions are 100% my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that support this little blog.

I hurried the kids out the door, letters to Santa in hand, and shuttled them into the car. I was a little nervous we’d miss the Snow Show at Pacific Place. We took a wrong turn that set us back several minutes causing us to miss the 6 pm show but I am so happy that they also have one at 7 all days, except Sunday. The kids did not believe Santa was really here in the mall, which is hilarious to me because I grew up always seeing Santa at the mall. But then they saw him and were so excited and a little nervous to give him their wishlist. Continue reading Seattle Fun: Christmas Time at Pacific Place

Seattle Fun: Holiday Party at Springfree

This post was sponsored by Springfree Trampoline. Thank you for supporting the brands that support my little family.

Seattle Holiday Party at Springfree TrampolineThere aren’t many businesses that often host free parties for kids and families to enjoy. Springfree does. I love that. They held a Halloween party, will be hosting a Gingerbread House Decorating party and just held a Frozen Movie Night with the Ice Queen herself. The little princesses filled up the space fairly quickly and it was a packed house! Thank you guys all so much for coming and supporting a great business in our area. You should check back often with them for their future events.

We arrived promptly at the start and there were already many princesses there with their families. Coloring and personalizing crowns and face painting were popular choices. Many of the boys got to be reindeer and the little girls opted for a tiara on their forehead. Seattle Holiday Party at Springfree Trampoline Seattle Holiday Party at Springfree TrampolineThe real magic started when the Ice Queen entered the room. Sheepish glances, excited whispers and parents’ hearts swelling over the happiness their children were feeling were felt as the Ice Queen smiled at the children. She didn’t just pose for pictures, she had such wonderful conversations with them. They enthusiastically shared what they did that day or asked her about her fairytale friends. Shhh… don’t tell Adelle, but a princess from Pixie Dust Princess Parties may be making an appearance. Meeting Elsa at Seattle Holiday Party at Springfree TrampolineAdelle is pretty stoic when it comes to her emotions but I could tell she couldn’t believe she just met the Ice Queen. She bit her fingers as she nervously approached her favorite princess. She looked at me with that incredulous smile after her meeting was over. Yes, baby girl, it was really her! Meeting Elsa at Seattle Holiday Party at Springfree TrampolineMy boys kept asking if that really was her and of course I said YES. Their eyes got wide and they smiled. They had so much fun eating snacks, watching the movie and most of all, jumping on the trampolines outside.

Seattle Holiday Party at Springfree Trampoline Seattle Holiday Party at Springfree Trampoline Seattle Holiday Party at Springfree TrampolineNot only does Springfree host fun events like this, but they also let you test jump the trampolines during store hours. The tgoma is so fun to try out and play games on the trampoline. My kids love ours and I don’t know what I would do without it…especially with the weather getting colder. I like to do the exercise one but I can only do like 5 minutes before I am exhausted! When is the last time you’ve jumped on the trampoline?

Seattle Fun: Frozen Movie Night at Springfree Trampoline

This post was sponsored by Springfree Trampoline. Thank you for supporting the brands that support my little family.

Springfree Holiday Party Family Fun Event in Seattle

My little girl is obsessed with Elsa. I know, what 2-5 year old girl isn’t? My husband thinks that Disney found a scientific way to get in the minds of these little girls to make them crazy for Frozen and the characters in it. While I want to say I am sick of the Frozen frenzy, I have to admit I love the story- a love story but not with the usual characters. It is about family and love and how that that is the most important thing that can cure all.

I would love for my local Seattle friends to join me, in partnership with Springfree Trampoline in Issaquah, to a special event on November 12th from 4-6. Dress up as your favorite princess or in your jammies, watch Frozen (woohoo!), get your face painted, pose with the Ice Princess herself, make a snowflake art project, eat some light snacks and jump to your heart’s content on the world’s first smart trampoline for a fun interactive experience!

Springfree Trampoline- trampoline for kids

I know what you are thinking, Do I really want to watch Frozen for the millionth time? The answer is YES. Because not only do you get to watch Frozen, you get to do all sorts of fun activities! The last event held there was so fun- my kids jumped the entire time and came home so exhausted that bedtime wasn’t a battle. Here’s a little glimpse of that day:

If you plan on joining us RSVP here so I can look out for you and say hello. Spread the word- this is the perfect event to come to as it will most likely be raining…it is Seattle. And it is a FREE family activity!
