Join Us for the Pampers “Bebe Con Ritmo” Twitter Party #BebeConRitmo

 This is part of a sponsored collaboration with Latina Mom Bloggers and Pampers. All opinions are 100% mine.

Pampers is celebrating those fun morning moments when baby wakes up happy, energetic and ready to “bailar” in his or her crib after a good night’s sleep.  When baby wakes up dry and ready to dance, mom can’t help but join in the fun too! All moms would agree that a dry diaper and a restful night's sleep are definitely cause for a morning time fiesta! 

Pampers asked parents to take a short video of their little one's best morning dance moves and share it with them! From August 18th through September 24th, parents were able to upload clips by using the hashtags #BabyGotMoves or #BebeConRitmo and tagging @PampersBabyGotMoves on Instagram or @PampersLatino or @Pampers on Twitter.

Parents were also able to share their video on Pampers Facebook walls (www.facebook.com/pamperslatino or https://www.facebook.com/Pampers). Pampers will air their final #BebeConRitmo and #BabyGotMoves mash-up video on their Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube channels this week.   

Join Pampers Latino and Latina Mom Bloggers on Tuesday, October 7th at 6pm PST/9pm EST for a Twitter party celebrating babies and moms fun morning moments. Of course, there will be lots of fun prizes to get you “bailando” too!

Great Adventure Fright Fest, with family-friendly Thrills by Day and even more Fright by Night. Great fun for the whole family! #Travel

This past Saturday we were able to spend a spooky and sun day at Great Adventure in Jackson, New Jersey. Six Flags Great Adventure is a place we had gone to a few times before and we love.

We got an early start to our day and thanks in part to little traffic on the Jersey turnpike we were at Great Adventure in about 40 minutes from Philadelphia, a quick trip!  
With fall being here you also get to partake in Fright Fest, Halloween was everywhere in the park if you didn’t notice that you are oblivious! The fountain was not pumping out water it was pumping out blood! Ok so it may not be real blood it’s was water dyed red to give it a chilling effect but our daughter totally loved it and we had to stop and look at it every time we walked past it. 

 Of course we had to check out the midway type games and fun they had. My daughter is a whiz at the grab machines, she just had to give them a shot. And yes, she was lucky enough to have won this adorable bear.

We were a little unsure how she’d react to Great Adventure, she’s timid when trying new things and scared of most rides but she totally jumped in feet first! She was dragging us from ride to ride and was willing to go on rides like Skull Mountain that I didn’t think she’d ever want to ride, she was a little scared at first but once she felt the wind in her hair she was happy.

After school family fun with Habsro games #Hasbro

 Now that school is in full swing we're back to the homework grind....and once my daughter is finished and we've eaten dinner she looks at us to do something. She loves spending time with us and playing games but since my husband broke his wrist a few weeks ago he hasn't been able to play video games with her and we've moved to something else and in my opinion far better for all of us board games!

Hasbro has a host of great games for all ages that will provide countless hours of fun for all even those of us with broken wrists. Our game time is something we use as a way to get our daughter to do her homework without complaining and it's gotten to the point where she comes home and just starts doing it without being told to do it. 

Once dinner is finished we let her pick the game she wants to play and right now she's been on a Monopoly kick and the Monopoly we have is something rather cool and very creative. 

 My Monopoly Game - It's the fast-trading property game of Monopoly with your own customization! This My Monopoly game includes blank tiles and stickers so you can make it your own. You can print out the stickers to personalize your tokens, properties, and even Chance and Community Chest cards! But you can play without customizing, too. Just move around the board buying as many properties (Streets, Railroads, and Utilities) as you can. The more you own, the more rent you'll get. If you're the last player with any money when all other players have gone bankrupt, you win!

Muay Thai Training – Test Your Limits

Although Muay Thai is a martial art that was once used by Thai men to defend their country from foreign invaders today this is a modern sport that allows people of any level of fitness, size, age or gender to protect themselves and defeat opponents that are stronger or larger than them. There are many Muay Thai techniques that can help you achieve that but the main reason why Muay Thai is so effective is the fact that this combat sport is developed based on real combat scenarios.

Interview with Sally Dryer, the voice of Violet in A Charlie Brown Christmas #Giveaway

Have you ever wanted to ask one of your favorite characters a question? How about a character you grew up watching, and was a classic cartoon character? Well when I think of my favorite characters I loved as a child, one that stands out the most for me is, Peanuts Lucy. And having the best job in the world gave me the chance to speak to the voice of Lucy (In one of my favorite TV specials, It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown) Sally Dryer! Sally was also the voice of Violet in A Charlie Brown Christmas. 

 I remember getting mad at Violet as a child, when she laughed at the little tree, the poor little tree….  Of course the tree was one of my favorite parts of the special. Yes we have a little tree, and it is a an adorable decoration I love to use each year. I even have a miniature tree to decorate my desk at work.
