5 things to do this summer

DSC_6052_EditedSo it’s seriosuly July 3rd and I’m JUST making a summer bucket list.  This year I learned to go with the flow, plan and adjust accordingly.  A lot of times we feel like once we make a plan, it has to be set in stone.  Who are we kidding especially when we have children!

DSC_6031_EditedSo here’s my very SHORT summer bucket list:

  1.  Make tie dye tees with the kids
  2. International family trip  ( I may or may not already have this booked )
  3. Enjoy an outdoor movie
  4. Visit family in Baltimore and have freshly steamed crabs
  5. Invited family/ friends over for a summer gathering

DSC_6026_EditedI learned my lesson last year check out my list here I wanted to accomplish 11 things, with a newborn baby, deployed husband while working full time and blogging.   Yeah I know….  tell me about it.  Sometimes we push ourselves to prove that we can do any and everything but why?  This season I’m all about reclaiming my happiness.  I am here to love on my husband and kids, create amazing memories with them, cherish my family and friendships and grow in my calling.

DSC_5954_EditedI’m challenging my Momtourage to do the same!  Do what you love, grow your brand and crush it.   What summer adventures do you have lined up? Share below I might need some ideas for next year!  Until next time….

Incredibles 2 with Alamo Draft House

This weekend is jammed packed with adventure, not only is it Father’s Day weekend, BUT it’s also my birthday weekend and the weekend for the release of Incredibles 2. Thanks to our friends at Alamo Draft we were able to cash in on the fun.

To celebrate the highly anticipated release for Incredibles 2, Alamo hosted a fun pre-movie craft session. The kids were able to make super hero masks, and super hero shields. In addition, they were also able to construct their own color creation with cool coloring sheets.

And of course they had a photo booth ready with tons of props.

After we got our craft on, the kids were able to show off their super hero skills and then we enjoyed the movie.

I really loved the reclining seats, as well as being able to order snacks without a line. The menu options even included a Vegan friendly meals. Being able to order from the comfort of our seats was the highlight of my day! #MomLife

This was our first time visiting Alamo Draft Cinema and trust me, it won’t be our last. The overall vibe took be back to the 80’s lots of nostalgia as well as VHS tapes. And for those that love a little spirit while you watch and dine, they have alcohol or “grown up juice”.

Overall the movie was a hit with the kids, and us parents. I can’t believe it took 14 years to recreate, but hey it was well worth it.

Be sure to check out this fun recipe of Jack Jack’s movie favorite movie treat, you’ll get it when you see the movie.

Thanks again to our friends at Alamo Draft House Cinemas for the invite we had a ball

Be sure to check out their summer movies series . They have several deals for the entire family!

Until next time……
