I cannot believe we're at the end of August already. Where has my summer gone? Where has my year gone? It has felt like a whole lot of work in the 2+ years since the pandemic started and I admit I feel a bit of burn out. I'm exhausted all the time and feel just kind of bleh. Well, nothing like a little family time to really perk up my attitude and to refill my positivity tank! This time, our fun #FamilyMovieNight involves a highly-anticipated movie...Paws of Fury! My preschooler and I were quite psyched about the trailers we saw on TV and were super excited to be able to watch this.

I don’t know about you but my summer camp experiences were sometimes good and sometimes just bad. Family...oh they can make vacation so so much fun but it can also lead to craziness and hijinks. This summer, enjoy time with the family and leave the crazy, funny when it's not your family stories, to Family Camp!

Did you know being outdoors is therapeutic? It truly is! There have been studies put out that 20-30 minutes outdoors for up to 2 hours per week is the optimal time frame to decrease cortisol in our bodies, otherwise known as the stress hormone. So, being outdoors is great for stress and depression. That being said though, what kid doesn't love being outdoors? I know mine does!

Though it hasn't quite warmed out in our part of the woods, Easter is here already. This means more time outdoors for our family. Sometimes, out on the golf course...other times, just on simple walks with our dogs. Lately though, we've had a lot more fun on our walks and when looking outside the window. "Why?", you ask. Well, it's simple really. We've expanded our home library with another fantastic collection of books from National Geographic Kids and have started birdwatching!

It's time to welcome the Spring season at least in some places. It's still quite cold where we live in the Midwest but I do love seeing the longer days and the sun shining. It sounds like our friends at Nickelodeon and Paramount are thinking the same with their new release Nick Jr. Spring is Here!, available on DVD April 05, 2022.

If you've been around the blog long enough, you'll know my family and I are suckers for based on true story movies. I have no idea why but there are just something about those films that tug at the heart and makes you root for the characters in them despite knowing that it's already happened. Now I'm no crazy football fan but I still enjoy those movies. Given Super Bowl just ended, this seemed like the perfect time to introduce our readers to American Underdog.

Our family have always been animal lovers and as a child, I adored Clifford The Big Red Dog. In fact, I wanted one of my own. It wasn't until adulthood, when I finally adopted our first dog and well, my preschooler is just as in love with animals as I am. So, we were super excited when Clifford The Big Red Dog came to life with a live-action movie. Now, it's available on DVD for your viewing at home perfectly in time with a red, ooey, gooey, warm and fuzzy holiday we all know as Valentine's Day!

So funny enough, before we were going to review this movie, I was all excited about it. However, my husband had heard from some others that it was confusing. So then, I was torn. I thought, is there any way that could be true of any Marvel movie? I had to give it a fair chance, right? So read on because I couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised!

We love the holiday season! There's so much warmth and cheer. There's something about settling in with the kids and watching a movie together. That's exactly what we did with Clifford The Big Red Dog! I actually loved Clifford and read the books as a kid and now it's something special to be able to share Clifford The Big Read Dog books with my preschooler. It's even more special to see Clifford show up on the big screens!
