All About Royal Caribbean's Adventure Ocean Kids Club #Familytravel #Cruise

We sailed on Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas this past May. We sailed with our 3 children ranging in age from 10 to 6 years old. The kids had SO much fun at Adventure Ocean kids club. They actually begged to go there to each session everyday!! Click here to view the Adventure Ocean Compasses. The activities changed each day and the theme was different each day also. This was nice so that children do not get bored.

Be sure to check the movie schedule

Adventure Ocean has a really nice science lab

My kids had a lot of fun at the 'family science experiment' in the science lab. We created volcano's that erupted! 

On the last day at sea there was a family bingo game offered in the Adventure Ocean kids club. It was free and there were prizes for bingo winners (kids only). My son won bingo and he was excited. He won a octopus key chain that is really cute.

Overall I highly recommend checking out Adventure Ocean kids club! It was really one of the many highlights of my kids vacation!

My New Journey With Plexus

I'm super excited to announce that I have started a new journey with Plexus! For the past year I have been suffering from anxiety and my body has been sluggish. I have tried various weight loss products at the grocery store that I won't mention here, but they were not successful. I am an avid yoga mom and I love that yoga helps me relax and destress. However, I was not loosing any weight with yoga. I am going to share my journey with readers and hope that some of you may be inspired to join me on this journey too! Plexus products are all natural and they actually work! To learn more visit my website at 

Did you know if you become a preferred customer you can receive a discount on products? I purchased the Plexus Triplex kit which includes Plexus Slim (drink mix) and Bio Cleanse and ProBio 5. 

Plexus Triplex works in three ways to remove, restore and rebalance your body.  Bio Cleanse works to remove harmful microbes and substances from your gut, ProBio 5 restores a healthy balance to your intestinal tract, and Slim helps your gut microbiome thrive while supporting healthy glucose metabolism.

My Day Touring Washington D.C.

I live just about two hours away from the Nation's capital, Washington D.C. Now that my kids are a little older I decided to take them to do some touring of Washington D.C. We thought about riding the train because parking in D.C can be quite hard to find (and expensive) but we ended up driving. I was able to find a great parking space online with the website You just put in the city you are traveling to and it will pull up the many parking garages and prices. I ended up paying only $12 for the whole day to park in Washington D.C!!

The trolley ride was so much fun! 

One of our favorite stops on the trolley tour---Lincoln Memorial with the Washington Monument in the background of this photo

Waiting at a trolley stop

We really wanted the kids to be able to see all of the major 'tourist' spots in D.C. However they are all spread out and would require A LOT of walking. Luckily I found Old Town Trolley Tours website. They offer a wonderful narrated tour on open air trolleys! The tour starts at the Washington Welcome Center. There is a huge gift store here and you can purchase same day tickets here also. They also have a very nice restroom for customers to use. Trolley tickets cost $39/each for adults and $29 for kids ages 4-12 but you can find coupons usually. Also, food is allowed on the trolleys. We packed a cooler and let the kids eat lunch on the trolley. They loved this!

  • Fully Narrated Tour of Washington DC
  • More than 100 Points of Interest
  • Hop On & Off at 25 Old Town Trolley Stops
  • Full Tour of Arlington National Cemetery
  • Exclusive Foreign Language Tour App with GPS Tracking
  • Free Full-Color Map of DC

All About Royal Caribbean's Adventure Ocean Program

We absolutely loved Oasis of the Sea's and my children loved every minute that they spent at the Adventure Ocean Kids Club on board the ship. You can read more about our Oasis of the Seas vacation on the blog. Each evening our room steward would leave us a daily compass and an Adventure Ocean compass. These were filled with information, times and activities for the kids club. Each day the activities were different which made it nice so the children never got bored! I really love how the kids club was open all day on the island days to allow parents the opportunity to leave the ship and enjoy a kid free adult activity such as renting a jet ski or simply shopping! 

We participated in the family science activity on Day 3. The children really enjoyed this. We made volcano's erupt! This was a really fun and educational science experiment. This was free of charge and only lasted about 30 minutes.

All About #KDKidsFest At Kings Dominion

We attended KidsFest at Kings Dominion last weekend and had SO much fun!! KidsFest runs from June 10 to June 18th. KidsFest is my children's favorite time to visit the park. There is SO much to do and tons of awesome events. Brick Fest Live is at the park and there is a huge Lego play area where your kids can create a Lego masterpiece. Plus there is also a huge Lego filled 'pool' for children to play in and build located near Joe Cool's Pit Stop! How fun is that?!

KidsFest includes many fun crafts including sand art and cookie decorating. Plus animal shows and even a Firetruck for children to explore and a balloon artist. There are really cool science experiments happening at the Mad Science tent located in Planet Snoopy near the family bathrooms. Don't forget to save time for the super fun children's games located in Planet Snoopy. These games range in price from $2 to $5 and all that play are 'winners' of various prizes! Be sure to visit their website to learn more:


Sand Art was a big hit for the kids! 


My children enjoyed watching the Mad Science event, located in Planet Snoopy. There were some really neat science experiments demonstrated on stage. 

Woodstock was out and about at KidsFest in Planet Snoopy! My kids were so happy to meet Woodstock! 

There was a really cute cookie decorating area set up in Planet Snoopy also! A "kit" included 3 plain cookies, icing and a spreader. $5 for 3 cookies

All About Our Day At King's Dominion's #SoakCity

We had such an amazing day at Kings Dominion last weekend! My kids loved Soak City waterpark. Picture yourself lying in a comfy beach chair relaxing while your children splash and play. This is exactly how our day was pretty much. We spent most of the day at the waterpark riding water slides, playing at Tidal Wave Bay, relaxing in the Lazy River and Soak City Splash House. My kids are 10, 7 and 6 years old and their favorite waterslide is FreeStylin'. Such a fun waterslide! No scary dark tunnels, no steep drops, just a really fun and enjoyable experience. 
If you're feeling brave, be sure to ride the Paradise Plunge & Thunder Falls at Hurricane Heights!

My kids spent about two hours playing at Soak City Splash House but they could have spent the whole day here! There are waterslides perfect for younger children who may not be brave enough for the 'big kid' slides and there are climbing nets and a huge bucket that dumps water every few minutes! Guests must be 40" to ride the waterslides. Did you know that Kings Dominion's Soak City is 20 acres?! It is by far the coolest place to slide, splash, chill and dine. With two wave pools, dozens of water slides and drop slides on Hurricane Heights. There’s also an interactive splash pad for little ones and a lazy river for those who want a more laidback day on the water.

The Clown Band was marching through Soak City! My kids were so excited to see them wearing their water floats :) 

My children love the frozen bananas and strawberry ice cream from Island Twist. I love the dole whip's! Such a perfect treat on a hot summer day. 

Additional Summer Events & Activities:
• Check out a full list of upcoming events covering everything from new coasters to events at events
