A couple weeks ago we took the boys and a friend of ours to the Denver Outlaws game to watch them play lacrosse. This was my first professional lacrosse game that I've been to and we had a great time. They play at Sports Authority Stadium (where the Broncos play) and it was pretty cool since we had good seats. Hudson even got to meet up with Jeremy Sieverts again after the game.
When the game was over everyone was invited onto the field to watch Big Hero 6. It was pretty neat being able to walk on the field and look up at all the seats. Can't imagine what the players go through when the stadium is packed.
While we were in Florida, we got to spend my dad's birthday with him. I was pretty excited that the boys would be able to spend the day celebrating their grandpa and boy did we have fun.
We started the day with a pontoon boat ride in Water Park on a beautiful lake. The boys loved going through the canals.
Then we headed back to the hotel room for lunch and of course some cake and presents.
That night we got to treat everyone with a trip to Medieval Times Orlando. The boys were giddy about it and kept asking all day when we were going. Once you step foot in the castle it's like being transported back in time.
We found our seats and anxiously await the tournament to begin. There really is no bad seats in the arena.
From the start to the end of the show, we were all entertained. We loved eating with our hands, our servers were great, everyone loved cheering on their knight (I got a flower!!) and we loved the show they put on.
We got to cheer on the green knight which made Hudson so happy because that's his favorite color. In the end our knight didn't win (he came in at second) but we all had the best time and left with a huge smile on our faces!
If your in the Orlando area on vacation, I highly recommend you stop in at Medieval Times for an amazing dinner and experience. You can follow them on their Facebook page to stay up to date on specials and their Twitter page.
Tickets to Medieval Times were given to me in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and pictures are 100% mine.
So a few weeks ago the family and I flew to Orlando to meet up with my dad and step mom for a week. We were anticipating this vacation for a really long time and had so many fun things planned.
We were lucky that our hotel not only had a rad pool but they also had a water slide that the boys went on 100+ times each. Let's just say that we spent hours in the pool everyday.
The first park that we visited was Universal Studios. Besides melting from the heat, we had a blast. We actually spent most of our time in Harry Potter's Diagon Alley. My dad bought the boys their own wand and they went around doing all sort of crazy spells. It was seriously the coolest thing ever. Sean and I were totally geeking out over everything.
The second theme park we visited was the Magic Kingdom. We didn't visit that park the last time we were in Orlando and since we were having Disneyland withdrawals, we decided to go there. I love that it still has the Country Bear Jamboree and the boys got to see Cinderella's castle. We even went on the new Seven Dwarfs Mine Train which was pretty cool (the 2 hour wait wasn't). The boys had a blast and we ended the night with fireworks and a boat ride back to the car.
Next up I'll share what we did for my dad's birthday while we were there!
Like a lot of parents with young kids, I keep my boys busy by playing sports. They play year around too so they play in weather ranging from hot and sunny to cold and misty. For this reason, I like to keep a pack of Huggies* Wipes in my car for all the messes headed my way.
My oldest is really into lacrosse which has been fun. He has a couple teams that he loves and a few favorite players. At the beginning of the summer he got to do a really cool summer camp with Jeremy Sieverts and Max Schmidt from the Denver Outlaws. Awesome, right?
As much fun as sports are, they can also make your kids dirty, sweaty and stinky. Let's just be honest about that. That leaves me (and my car) with a couple problems. I can't hose my son off after every lacrosse practice or game so I always make sure to keep a pack of Huggies* Wipesclose by. Hudson knows when he takes off his gloves, he needs to wipe his hands off.
I also use the wipes to wipe down his cleats if they're muddy, my seats if they're dirty and I could go on and on BECAUSE KIDS OUTGROW DIAPERS, NOT MESSES*.
From one mom to another, if you need something that will clean your family's messes but is still sensitive enough for your baby's skin, then check out Huggies* Wipes with triple clean layers!
Do you keep a pack of wipes in your car? What are some other ways you use wipes?
Over the weekend we drove to Boulder with some friends to go hiking. We ended doing the Bobolink Trail and it was absolutely gorgeous and perfect for the kids. It was flat and the Boulder Creek ran next to it so we were constantly stopping so the kids could play in the water (it was freezing!).
Having only lived in Colorado a year, we are totally enjoying all the exploring we get to do. Hiking is one of our favorite activities to do with the boys since they can run around and be as crazy as they want. The baby even loved running after all the big kids and throwing rocks into the water.
I wish I would have brought my big camera but I totally forgot. I'm still kicking myself.
