Dino Safari USA- Our Visit to Freehold, NJ Location

Thank you Dino Safari USA for hosting us. As always, all opinions are still 100% my own. This summer, I have made a commitment to try and find things to do and places to visit around New Jersey with my kids and when I heard that Dino Safari USA was coming to different locations in NJ I got really excited! My 4 year old is fascinated with dinosaurs and his little brother is just learning to like them as well. So yesterday we grabbed our dino toys, got in the car and went for an adventure at the Dino Safari USA drive thru located at the Freehold Raceway mall and the boys had an awesome time. During the entertaining drive thru experience you can get up and close to more than 40 life-size moving dinosaurs including Triceratops, Microraptor and the famous T. Rex my boys love so much! During the adventure you can learn about each continent and the dinos that lived there, learn about how dinosaurs evolved over time and discoveries paleontologists have made …

Fun Night at the New Jersey State Fair Meadowlands

Thank you to State Fair Meadowlands for hosting us. As always, opinions are still 100% my own. Summer is officially here and we are ready for some fun! I’ve been looking for local things to do with kids this season and adding them all up to my bucket list. And to celebrate the first week of summer fun adventure, nothing better than a State Fair! Our family looks forward to State Fair Meadowlands every year! Last time we went though was when Gabriel was one year old, back in 2018. Then the following year Raphael was born and 2020 was canceled! So when we heard that this year they were opening, we had to visit! If you want to experience a big carnival fun this summer, State Fair Meadowlands is your destination. It’s located at MetLife Stadium parking lot from June 20th until July 11th. They are open weeknights from 5 pm to 12 am, Fridays from 3 pm to 1 am, Saturdays from 2 pm to 1 am and Sundays from 2 pm to …

Wayfare Plant-Based Pudding- My Kids Love it

I received this product for free from MomsMeet.com to use and post my honest opinion. Compensation for this post was provided. This year we have a bucket list of things we want to accomplish with kids during Summer. One of these things is to get outside for a hike or walk in the park at least three times a week. But with two little ones, you have to think ahead of what snacks to bring, because after a long walk all they want is something to eat. I have been packing some plant-based puddings on our lunchbox and the whole family loves it. Wayfare puddings have a perfect consistency and its very creamy with a smooth mouthfeel and a light richness. Its a bit different from the the dairy pudding you get in a box, but it is vegan and made with far better ingredients for your family. Their goal is to help people live healthier lives by providing their plant-based food options. They use beans, oats and seeds as base for their products and …

Our Visit to Medieval Times in NJ- A Recap of a Fun Night

Thanks to Medieval Times Lyndhurst NJ for our complimentary invitation. Last night we had the opportunity to visit Medieval Times for the third time! My first time attending the show was back in 2008. It was actually a date night for me and my boyfriend, today my husband 🙂 After that we went back again with friends and family and had a blast. Now after hearing the news that they were reopening I wanted to take my two boys (4 and 2 year old) for their first experience. The Medieval Times is a themed dinner show that includes a feast, horse showcases, knight games and live-action battles and jousts. My older boy has been talking about seeing the horses all week long and last night he was so excited! They open the doors one hour before the show and the Medieval Times experience begins the moment you see the castle. Once inside, there are employees wearing traditional Middle Ages attire to greet you. The grand lobby has colorful decor lots of weapons displays with several …

Tips To Prepare For A Safe Summer

Summer is finally here and I know many of us are excited to finally spend a “normal” few months outside with neighbors, friends, and family. It means lots of time outdoors, BBQs with friends and neighbors, gardening vegetables and fruits, and summer cleaning both inside and outside. It’s about spending quality time with the ones we love. However, with all the excitement there should be some tips and rules for your kids to have fun but also safe summer.  Have A Check List To Close Up For The Night There are a few basic things that you can do to keep your home and your kids safe this summer. One important point to do is to make a checklist of all the things that you need to do before you go to bed each night. Some of these items can be checking the windows and door ( and making sure they are closed and locked up tight ). You should also make sure that this includes the window, as many of us enjoy the fresh …

Flavor Your Life- Italian Cooking Class

I received this productfor free from Moms Meet to use and post my honest opinions. Compensation for this post was provided and this page may contain affiliate links. Eating healthy nowdays is a priority for most people. But when it comes to choosing what is good for us, it can be difficult to know what to pick. One item I always make sure I have home, is olive oil but I have to admit I always feel lost when shopping for it. There are many varieties! Do I pick virgin, extra virgin, cold press, and where should it come from? Some say it’s okay to cook with, some say it’s not. Help please! Thanks to the Flavor Your Life campaign it all becomes more clear! This campaign was created to provide education to U.S. consumers so we can make good decisions when purchasing extra virgin olive oil. It is supported by the European Union, Unaprol, and the Italian Ministry of Agriculture. I had the opportunity to attend a Flavor Your Life Italian cooking virtual class and here …

Our Favorite Pajamas: Pact Dream Big

This post is in partnership with Moms Meet and all opinions are my own. My oldest son, now 4 years old has very sensitive skin. If he wears any fabric other than cotton he starts to get itchy and gets very unconfortable. So I had to change the way I shop, specially for his pajamas, which is an item he spends lots of hours in it. When he was a little baby, I was introduced to Pact which is known as Earth’s Favorite™ clothing company. Their pajamas are made with 100% organic cotton that is GOTS certified, soft and breathable without toxic chemicals. Pact strives to make sustainable kids’ clothing affordable, and they’ve been quite successful in achieving this mission. Relative to most other ethical or sustainable kids’ clothing brands, they are less expensive. Despite using organic cotton and partnering with Fair Trade Certified™ factories, they keep their costs to customers down in part by creating really simple clothes and sustainable basics. They also sell basics in bundles to further reduce the cost per item …

Kalahari Resorts Poconos, PA: How to Plan your Visit

I received a complimentary stay for social media content, however, all opinions are my own. We just got back from our first visit to Kalahari Resorts in the Poconos, PA and it was a blast! You guys have sent me quite a few questions while I was there so I wanted to make this post to answer all questions and break it down for you on how to plan a trip to Kalahari Resorts. When should I visit and how long should I stay? Kalahari is open year round but the outdoor waterpark is obviously only open during a specific season. We arrived on Monday and checked out on Wednesday and that was a perfect two night stay! In my opinion, 2 nights give you plenty of time to experience everything Kalahari has to offer. The check in is at 4pm but if you arrive earlier you have access to the water park as soon as it opens, which is 10am. We were very lucky and our room was ready when we arrived which was …

Our Little Getaway to Florida

We love to take a few days off every year to travel. However, when COVID-19 struck back in March last year, many of our upcoming adventures were canceled. So after basically one year in quarantine (we didn’t do much 2020 and stay most of the time home with our two boys) we decided to safely make our first trip of 2021 and continue pursuing our travel adventures. So today I’m here to tell you how we did it and how it all went. So if you are in the fence about traveling right now, I hope that sharing our story and experiences will be a teeny bit helpful in making the best possible decision for you and your family’s travels. Because it’s winter here in New Jersey, we wanted to escape the cold weather and Florida was the best option for a road trip. We are not comfortable flying just yet with two kids under 4, so we decided that a road trip would be the best option. Road trip Here are a few tips …

Persona: A Personalized Vitamin Pack

This post is sponsored by Moms Meet, but all opnions are my own. We are living in a crazy time where good nutrition is more important than ever for staying as healthy as possible. I have always been a fan of taking supplements, and I think that vitamins can help compliment a healthy diet. But most times I just get overwhelmed when I am on the vitamins isle in the supermarket. I just dont know what to get. So I recently tried a new way to supplement my vitamins and wanted to share my review of Persona. What is Persona? Persona is an online service that sends personalized vitamin packets right to your door. You start by taking a quick quiz to see which vitamins and minerals are most recommended for you. It is very simple with easy questions about your lifestyle such as how much you exercise, if you get sun outside, if you have any dietary restrictions, etc. It has questions about what you want to focus on the most such as if …
