Fallsview Indoor Waterpark – Niagara Falls

Fallsview-Playplace

Disclosure: I received free tickets to visit the waterpark for review purposes. All experiences and opinions are my own. Yours may differ. My family and I have been to many waterparks. I kind of consider myself a waterpark snob because some waterparks are great for families and children, and others are just horrible. Whether it is how the rides are laid out, or what types of rides there are, it can really make or break a park for families. The Fallsview Indoor Waterpark is one of the … [Read more...]

Donny Osmand is Joseph in the … [Read more...]

Whitaker Center – Harrisburg, PA

blog 10

  Having been a child (not long ago-ahem), a teacher and now a parent there are not many museums or interactive exhibit centers that blow me away.  Often they seem to all have the same general features with a few unique things here and there.  Don't get me wrong I love a good Children's or Science Museum but had I not been able to visit the Whitaker Center I would have missed out on a fantastic opportunity.  So here they are- the things that the Whitaker Center had that I wish I had … [Read more...]

Sponsored Video: Watch Nana Test the 3M Nexcare Waterproof Bandage

This post has been sponsored by 3M Nexcare, but concerns my own opinion.

In this survival kit are tums (you never know when a tummy ache might strike!), pain killer, lotion, sunscreen, antibacterial soap, Neosporin and bandages in different shapes and … [Read more...]

Pride of the Susquehanna- Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

blog 1

My family was thrilled to take a ride on the Pride of the Susquehanna River Boat.  We had a wonderful 45 minute afternoon ride.   To say that the employees of the river boat were accommodating would be an understatement.  They were friendly, patient and very understanding (we had issues with our tickets-totally the fault of my email and sometimes when there are little issues like this I am interested to see how people will react.) They didn't miss a beat when we had issues with our tickets- they … [Read more...]

The Sweetest Place to Play – HersheyPark

Hershey-Park-Family

Disclosure: I was given free tickets for review purposes. All experiences and opinions are my own. Yours may differ. We have been to many theme parks over the course of the last 12 years of our marriage, not to mention all the theme parks we went to growing up with our own families. Each theme park seems to be set up basically the same way. A section for games, places for shows, some big roller coasters and a section for kiddie rides. The people behind the design of HersheyPark are … [Read more...]
