Kittatinny Campgrounds – Our Stay at the Evergreen Riverview Cabin

We received free lodging at this camping. All opinions are my own. This past weekend we escaped the craziness of the city and headed to the Catskill Mountains in upstate New York to spend a few days at Kittatinny Campgrounds. Kittatinny is the pioneer of the river outfitting industry and has been operating on the Delaware river for 80 years! Their multiple locations are strategically located to provide a diverse selection of river trips and give you the best in riverfront camping. With two campgrounds across two states, there is plenty of space to discover the beauty of the Pocono and Catskill Mountains. Kittatinny Campgrounds has long been our family summer getaway destination. Before Gabriel was born in 2017, we used to go for a camping trip at the Kittatinny every year. We always enjoyed it so much! The contact with nature, unplugging, the sounds of the river and all the river water sports made us want to plan a getaway every summer. So this year, I wanted to take the boys to experience some …

A Day Trip to Sesame Place in Langhorne PA

I received complimentary tickets to visit the park in exchange for a media coverage. All opinions are my own. This weekend we took a trip down to Pennsylvania to visit Sesame Place amusement park. Sesame Place is located in Langhorne, (just outside of Philadelphia) and is a park themed entirely to the world & characters of the kid’s show: Sesame Street. Since the park is only about an hour away from our home in New Jersey we left at around 9 am (the park opens at 10 am) and got there just a few minutes past 10. Parking at the park is $30 and for preferred parking (which lets you park closer to the park) prices start at $50. We received preferred parking ticket and were able to park pretty close to the entrance! When you arrive at the entrance of the park, all bags will be checked. You can bring in water but no outside food. They will check your bags first and at the second gate, the staff will scan your tickets, and …

Swim Lessons at Goldfish Swim School in Springfield, NJ

This post was done in partnership with Goldfish Swim School in Springfield, NJ and we received free classes, however, all opinions are 100% my own. If you follow us on Instagram, you probably have seen that the kids are taking swim lessons at Goldfish Swim School in Springfield for the last few months and I wanted to share our experience with swim lessons because they’ve been such a positive asset to our lives. I’m not a parent who like to over schedule my kiddos. I believe in extracurricular activities, but I really cherish our time home and not having to run from event to event yet. However, I also believe that swim lessons are a MUST. Summer is coming soon and we are basically always around water and having a sense of ease knowing my child can get to safety in case something happens is a top priority in my book. My four year old son Gabriel took a few swim lessons when he was a baby. He has always been happy around water. But …

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, …

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 …

If you follow me on Instagram you probably got a peek of what we experienced, but if you have not I will tell you all details about this family fun day here on this post. Some of you might be asking what exactly is Wild West City. So lets get into it. What is Wild West City?

Liberty Science Center- The New Dino Dig Exhibit

Thank you Liberty Science Center for inviting us to preview the Dino Dig Adventure. As always, this post is 100% my opinion. My boys have been on a dinosaur phase. They love everything from books to toys, they play dinosaurs around the house pretending they are one and are so excited to learn things when it has to do with these magnificent prehistoric creatures. So I was super excited to be invited to spend the day exploring Liberty Science Center in Jersey City and to preview their new exhibit Dino Dig Adventure which will be open to the public tomorrow, July 21. In addition to the already amazing exhibits and experiences, LSC is also offering fun ways to learn all about dinosaurs!

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 …

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 …
