A belated happy Easter! :)

I know it is a little late but this Easter we had a great time with the children and I thought I might share! I would have shared a little sooner but my internet had not been playing ball and so I have subsequently been playing catch-up!!

We had to switch around our plans last minute this year but it worked out great! We took the kids to an orchard to do an egg hunt and pet some animals and play in the park, have their face painted and collect balloon animals from a clown AND have a photo with the Easter bunny, as well as other things like sack races and bean bag toss and what not - even a regular playground and so this place had it all!

We almost didn't find the place but made it just in time for the last egg hunt, which was fabulous because the kids got to chase around finding all the eggs without much competition and they came away with very full baskets! We even did a hunt for the baby, who really didn't need any eggs or prizes but the other kids sure didn't complain about the extra candy and we were able to include him in the photos!

The kids had their faces painted without any issues and the balloon animals were glorious! The one chosen by my step son was a giant spider, which looked like an octopus and which just about fit in the back of the car!!! He was very pleased with that one!

We got to meet some friendly goats and fluffy alpacas and some chickens who I would LOVE to have taken home with me!! I would love to have room for chickens AND goats actually and so it is hard to leave them behind and head back to normalcy in the city (but I digress!).

On the Sunday that weekend we went to my in laws and hosted an egg hunt for our 3 year old and put the baby in the new swing they hooked up in their yard! We ate and the kids received gifts and then we went home, exhausted from the rather long weekend with other things thrown in along the way!

I really hope you had a lovely, relaxed Easter and are now eager to welcome in the Spring/Summer with a smile and a high five!

Here' to the next adventure!

Daddy & Co. Scrubba Dub Dub with Daddy Duck - Soft Book Giveaway!

Here is something else from Daddy and Co. this week - this sweet little soft book called "Scrubba Dub Dub with Daddy Duck!"

This is a cute little book that would make a great starter for your son/daughter and their daddy (or mommy) to share with them and would make a cute addition to a baby shower gift bag or on its own - it is never too early to introduce books to your children and reading can bring so much joy to the parent AND the child!

I love this quick read that entertains baby and older children, too! My toddler and baby sat and listened to me read this book and the toddler cheered at the end! The baby wanted to eat it and that was O.K. too because it is soft and safe enough for a younger child to handle!

Justified is over, until next season, which will be its last!

I absolutely love the show Justified and I have sat and watched it all through its current season and with this season's finale I had goosebumps as the end credits went up!

Next season, season 6, is going to be its final season and I can barely believe it has been around THIS long and kept up its momentum with each episode really grabbing hold and roping us all in!

Admittedly, I don't think that season 5 was its strongest but it did put in the effort to bring Boyd down to size a little bit and has left a very clear path for Raylan now that it is time for one last dance between the two before Raylan hangs up his hat for Florida - and maybe another hat!

Will Boyd get out of Harlan alive? Is there a betrayal in the wind? Will we see the ass kicking fellas go back to basics and come full circle to conclude this ridiculously awesome show - and, lastly, will the way the wind blow Boyds hair into a work of art fit for a king!?

Who knows!

One thing I DO know, though, is that if the show is going to stick to the short story "Fire in the Hole" of which the TV show is based, then things are about to get ugly and it'll sure be one hell of a ride!

See you soon, Justified!

Creeper Crawlers Review

My son is now 6 months old, almost 7 months, and time has flown by! At this age he is doing all of the fun things that babies do like roll over, pull up and get ready to crawl!

As such, this stage begets the fun and satisfaction of testing out great products such as this CREEPER CRAWLER all in one outfit, which hosts a plethora of little grip pads at the legs, knees and feet in the shape of cute little bugs, which allow baby to gain a good grip while learning to crawl/stand/walk.

Available in pink, blue or cream in sizes 6-9 months an 9-12 months, these suits are designed to give baby the best traction with the least imposing grip possible!

At €14.99 (approximately $20.00), these suits definitely provide a lot of fun and comfort to your little ones! They are unique, while providing a wonderfully simple fix for babies everywhere - no slipping, no fuss and nothing uncomfortable while learning to get up and going! 

My son is pictured wearing the size 6-9 month cream suit and, as you can see, it is adorable and very comfortable (cotton) for him to wear! The bugs are cute and stand out, but are not overbearing or bumpy/raised and cause no discomfort at all! 

I love the way this looks on my son and he seems to be happy to share it with you and, and who wouldn't be! Look how sweet those radiant little bugs are all over his suit - especially the ones on his feet, which he is showing off especially for you! 

I think these are great value and a fabulous idea, which would make for a great birthday present or baby shower gift and will give back more while helping baby to get mobile! 

For more information on these Creeper Crawler suites, why not head on over HERE to find out how they came about and what they can do for you! You can also find Creeper Crawlers on Facebook, HERE and Twitter, HERE, too!

I definitely give these a big thumbs up and may have to invest in more to keep us going! They are just so adorable! So, what are you waiting for!? Why not check them out, today and see where they take you!
