Lady Lullaby Music

Prize: Hardcopy CD of Road to Dreamland: Unexpected Lullabies for All Ages. Unique jazz-flavored bedtime lullabies for everyone from babies to grownups!
"Jazz singer Jane Roman Pitt's oh-so-lovely album's subtitle, "Unexpected Lullabies for All Ages," is apt. Among the tender, off-the-beaten-path lullaby choices here, are the Thad Jones classic, "A Child is Born," Neil Young's "Barefoot Floors," and this exquisite little art song hinting of magic and fairyland: "The Sleep That Flits (on baby's eyes)" (text by Rabindranath Tagoe, music by John Alden Carpenter). Pitt's original "Dance Like the Wind," is a smooth fit; other soothing, well-chosen tracks include "Over the Rainbow," "The Nearness of You," and "Summertime." The jazz arrangements and instrumentation here are A+, and the singer herself, who styles the songs with lilting vibrato and a soft vocal caress, is chief among the album's unexpected treats."

Myrtle Beach Must See Family Attractions

We are super excited about our upcoming vacation to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina! I have been doing a lot of research and I can't wait to share all of the awesome family friendly attractions with ya'll! We have planned to visit the following attractions:

Alligator Adventure Where else can you watch a fifteen foot alligator feeding?! My 6 year old son is beyond excited to visit Alligator Adventure. They have daily shows along with snakes, kangaroo's, etc. Alligator Adventure is located at the entrance to Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach.

Barefoot Landing My #1 favorite restaurant at Barefoot Landing is Greg Normans Australian Grille. This is such a great place to go for any meal or even a drink after shopping. Be sure to request a table with a view of the Intercoastal Waterway. My children love the carousel at Barefoot Landing! It is a must! My kids love the mirror maze  at Barefoot Landing. Fireworks take place every Monday night at 10:15 pm thru August 29th. Be sure to save time for shopping-there are over 60 shops!

Broadway At The Beach Be sure to check out their website to see a list of all the great restaurants they have! My kids love the pyramid (Hard Rock Cafe). I am a Parrot Head and really love Margaritaville. Fireworks take place on Tuesdays and Fridays at 10 pm thru August.

Broadway Grand Prix Go karts & Kids Zone complete with a train and carousel. There are many tracks for adults, teens and children. Can't wait to race my kids!

Ripley Aquarium Ripley's Aquarium is so much fun! One word- MERMAIDS! My girls can not wait to see the mermaids! There is also a huge reef filled with the most beautiful fish.

Wonder Works This is the perfect place to play on a cloudy or rainy day when you can't play on the beach! Wonder Works has SO much to do, including an indoor glow in the dark ropes course, laser tag, 6D motion extreme motion ride and outdoor soar and explore zip line and ropes course!

Wonder Works zip line

Stay tuned for my reviews on all of the above attractions!

My Recent Visit To Kings Dominion Was So Fun

We recently visited Kings Dominion and had the best time! My three children are at the perfect age for Planet Snoopy and they had a blast at the water park, Soak City. According to my children their favorite attraction is Joe Cool's Driving School. They love that there are working stop lights and stop signs! My daughter says that Planet Snoopy was her favorite area of the park. Meeting Snoopy and friends was so special. My son really enjoyed Boo Blasters On Boo Hill. I'd recommend spending the first part of your day at Planet Snoopy. The line's weren't bad at all and we arrived right when the park opened at 10:30 am. After 2 hours we headed to Soak City which opened at noon. We had lunch in Soak City. They have lockers available for rental (additional fee). We were able to find two nice lounge chairs near Splash Island. My younger children (ages 6 and 5) loved Splash Island. This is a nice shady water play area for children under 54". It is centrally located and has a great view of the lazy river.

Throughout the day Snoopy and friends will appear for photos and meetngreets 

Be sure to visit Dinosaur's Live--admission is $5 per person and it takes about 30 to 45 minutes to view all of the animatronic dinosaurs. It is really quite fun!

We had so much fun at Soak City! We could easily have spent the whole day just in the water area because my kids loved it! We started out with the lazy river followed by the Baja Bend water slides (my 9 year old's favorite water slide) and then we headed to the wave pool. My daughter and I rode Hurricane Heights. My younger children had a blast playing in Splash Island which is a really nice area for children under 5 years old. There were water squirters, a small slide and climbing area and a big bucket that dumps water. It is also very shaded in this area. Another fun area for younger children is pictured below, Soak City Splash House:
This has over 40 water attractions and a huge bucket that dumps water. There is a swimming bridge too.

My 9 year old said her favorite snack at Kings Dominion is their ice cream! 

Once it gets dark outside many of the attractions light up including the huge ferris wheel and even the Eiffel Tower! It changed colors and there was a super cool forest where the tree's change colors and there is music playing. My kids thought this was so neat. 
The Eiffel Tower is beautiful at night
