Only Original Brand Popsicle pops can bring out the kid-at-heart in all of us, so the brand asked families across the country to help compile a guidebook of the top “rules” for how to have fun like a kid – whether it’s owning a tutu in every color or running through the sprinklers to cool off.

7 Things on Sunday

Seven things I’ve done over the past seven days.

Aunt10549845_342202289268797_1674707069_n

1. Spent a nice evening visiting with my Aunt and her dog, Jasmine
2. Shopped with gift cards and bought a new camping table and inflatable mattress.
3. Watched Rob the Mob and really liked it.
4. Enjoyed birthday cake with our granddaughter. She turned seven.
5. Had six teenagers sleepover the night before driving them to and from Van’s Warped Tour.
6. Had three of them sleepover after the concert.
7. Had two of them sleepover the next night. It’s been a full house for three days.

BubbleBum inflatable car booster seat review

With a new grand baby on the way (any day now), this grandma is not looking forward to lugging around two separate car seats when the kids come to visit. Just in-time to save me from breaking my back, I received the new BubbleBum Inflatable Car Booster Seat to review.

bubblebum_photo78558

Meets all US safety testing standards. BubbleBum, the cost effective, portable, lightweight, brightly colored, inflatable car booster seat for children aged between 4-11, easily deflates and folds flat so that kids or mom and dad can carry it in a backpack or purse, making it perfect for vacations, rental cars, taxis, school pick up or car pooling. Takes less than 20 seconds to inflate by mouth!

As you can see the BubbleBum is so lightweight that Becca has no problems carrying it on her own, leaving my hands (and back) free to carry the new infant car seat, or whatever else we need to carry that day.

This product could not be easier to use. The well designed clips make it easy to strap Becca in place and keep her there in comfort. Unlike the previous booster seat that I had purchase and really struggled with.

Not just a car seat, Becca loves her BubbleBum, using it as a booster seat at our table and even a few times while sitting on the floor to watch television. It is pretty soft. I love that it’s so lightweight and easy to carry, she loves it’s fun colorful design, and the fact that it belongs to her. Knowing all of this, and knowing that it helps keep her safe while riding in the car makes the BubbleBum a real win in our house.

The BubbleBum is available in four fun colors, and comes complete with a carrying case, and added belt positioning clip for extra comfort. Winner of several child safety awards the BubbleBum is available in select retailers and online.

Backyard Camping & Rio 2 Digital Download Review #RIO2Insiders

When our recent road trip to up north had to be canceled we decided to celebrate the release of Rio 2 with a fun backyard camp out.

Rio27854_OneSheet

Our back yard is a far cry from the amazon, but with a tent, some Rio 2 activities, campfire and Rio 2 Digital Download, it was a fun adventure for the whole family. One we wont soon forget.

rio2_camping_4pics

We kicked off the day with a fun scavenger hunt that led Becca to finding her Rio 2 goody-bag. The bag was filled with activities, travel essentials, Rio bracelets and fun tattoos! After a campfire lunch and just like any other camping trip, my husband and hound took their afternoon nap in the tent. Becca and I spent that time enjoying our Rio 2 activity sheets. Our favorite 3D Ball Soccer. We laughed so hard, I don’t know how anyone could have been napping.

After dinner we downloaded Rio 2 using iTunes. Downloading was easy, and faster than I expected, and by using iTunes we scored a whole flock of fun movie extras! The best part of digital download is that we now have access to the movie anytime, anywhere by using our phone or tablet. This will come in real handy the next time we do make it up north! It’s along car ride for the girls.

Our thoughts on the movie;
If you enjoyed the first Rio movie, you’re going to enjoy this one. Even though there are some jokes that older kids and adults are more likely to catch, the movie is fun for the whole family. Becca who is about to turn seven and our teenage daughter who just turned fifteen both really enjoyed the movie and have watched it a second time already. The animation is stunning, filled with emotion and colorful characters. Then of course there is the music. Just like the first installment Rio 2 has a great uplifting soundtrack. I’m not always a fan of animated films, but this one I’m happy to have in our home library.

Rio 2 is available to purchase on DVD, Blu-ray and Blu-ray combo on July 15th, or you can visit the iTunes store NOW to purchase Rio 2 on HD Digital Download!
