My Journey Taking Probiotics

Last month I celebrated my 35th birthday. Every year that I get older I think more and more about my health and how to nourish my body and mind. I think that when we get older we try to make up for all the unhealthy choices made in the past! So at the beginning of this year I decided that one thing I was going to take more seriously was taking my vitamins and supplements. And that’s when I came to know more about probiotics. I started taking probiotics after having tummy troubles. No matter how clean I ate, how much water I consumed or my level of work out, I would randomly have abdominal pain. So thats when I started my jorney to getting to know more about probiotics and introducing it as a supplement on my daily routine. I came across Kyo-Dophilus probiotics and that’s the one I’ve been taking since then. Kyo-Dophilus Probiotics are formulated to support healthy digestive and immune systems. Their probiotics deliver efficacy, quality and extended live cell viability, …

Visiting Cape May County Zoo in NJ

When my first born was one year old, we took him to our local zoo for a day trip. He was too little and even though he had a good time, he didn’t understand much at that age. So a week ago he started school on pre-K 4 and out of the sudden he started to ask about animals in the zoo and his curiosity grew. So yesterday we planned a fun family day trip down to Cape May to visit the County Zoo. I’ve heard great things about the park and zoo and decided that it was worth the drive. From our house in North Jersey to Cape May it’s about 2 hours and a half drive. So we planned accordingly to go to the zoo first and then spend the day down the shore. The Cape May County Zoo is open every day except for Christmas, weather permitting. The hours of operation are from 10:00 am until 3:30pm in the winter and 10:00am until 4:30pm in the summer. One of the best features …

Summer Fun at the Land of Make Believe

Thank you Land of Make Believe for hosting us. As always, all opinions are still 100% my own. Summer is all about making family memories, and this year we have taken that very seriously. The boys are in perfect ages to explore tons of activities and cool places New Jersey has to offer. So when I learned about Land of Make Believe, I knew that it was a destination I had to plan a trip to. The Land of Make Believe is a family-owned amusement park that features carnival-like rides, a water park, a Christmas barn, a few farm animals, some make- believe entertainment and much more. It was designed specifically for little children, so it is ideal for family with young kids. But seriously, anyone at this park will have an amazing time. I really like the whole concept of how it all started around 60 years ago. “Land of Make Believe’s founder designed & built with the dream of providing affordable Family fun. No longer would parents be “passive spectators.” They would, in …
