Netflix Celebrates Siblings in April! #StreamTeam

Believe it or not, siblings really can get along. They play together, they cuddle, and they get sad when one of them is gone for too long. But when it comes to agreeing on something to watch, they can go from love to loathe in a matter of minutes. We want siblings everywhere (of all ages) to get along famously, no matter their differences in show tastes. That’s why Netflix has created Netflix Sibling Playlists to honor National Siblings Day (April 10th). During the month of April, kids can choose from playlists such as the “Tale of Two Distant Ages” to “Sugar and Spice” and more, offering something for every sibling squad to watch and enjoy together.

We’re certainly no stranger to the way siblings get along in our house, which is why we’ve picked some of our favorite Netflix shows and playlists t0 share with you. Read on to see some of the great “Sibling Playlists” Netflix has to offer, and a sample of the great shows and movies that are available on the site this month!

Still Can’t Decide?

Since we know getting a collective answer can be easier said than done, Netflix has created an iconic fortune teller to help your family decide what to watch next. Even better, create your own.

How to play:IMG_3538

1. Pick a color on the top four flaps and spell out the letters (e.g. B-L-U-E) while alternating a pinching and pulling motion with the teller to reveal a set of four numbers.
2. Pick a number and move the fortune teller the corresponding number of times, revealing a second set of four numbers.
3. Choose a genre and open the flap to reveal what’s up next on Netflix.

Chaos Caught on Video: The Joker Takes First Test Run @sfgradventure #SummerMustDo

Chaos Caught on Video: The Joker Takes First Test RunjokerWho’s ready? I know our family cannot wait for this one! Six Flags Great Adventure Plans to Debut Insane 4D, Free-Fly Coaster Memorial Day Weekend! Six Flags Great Adventure’s insane, new 4D, free-fly coaster The Joker took its first test run late afternoon Wednesday. The flawless run was captured by on-board video. The coaster’s first riders were water-filled, plastic dummies that simulate the weight and proportions of human thrill seekers. A dummy named “Harry” captured point-of-view video of the ride from a chest-mounted GoPro camera.    

PHOTO Harry with GoProAfter being lifted straight up a 12-story, 90-degree hill, The Joker will wreak havoc as riders flip head-over-heels at least six times along the seemingly weightless journey. Thrill seekers will experience exhilarating leaps and dives along a horizontal plane, along with unexpected drops as they tumble from one level to the next. The wing seats amp up the pandemonium since riders will experience all of this chaos with no track above or below ─ just the sky, ground and adjacent Great Lake churning around them.joker1During the next month, engineers will fine-tune the ride control system and complete extensive testing, followed by a series of inspections and certification by New Jersey ride inspectors. The coaster is expected to debut Memorial Day weekend. The Joker is the second 4D, free-fly coaster of its kind anywhere in the world.

The Ride! An NYC Must Do! @TheRideNYC #SummerMustDo

The Ride! An NYC Must Do! @TheRideNYCtheridenycIf you are in the NYC area, living or visiting, be sure to add The Ride to your must do list! You will not regret this fun interactive treat to your senses. Sure, we have all been on tour buses before. This is definitely not your usual tour bus. It’s a show on wheels and a one of a kind experience for your friends and family to enjoy together. theride1

theride3The Ride bus has a few rows of seats all facing the side of the bus. No one faces the front like in a regular bus, you face the sidewalk, it’s super fun and has a million surprises. There is stadium style, side facing seating with a panoramic view! You will not need to stretch your neck in order to see since there are floor to ceiling glass windows. Our family did not know what to expect as we boarded this unique vehicle. Speaking of the bus, it’s a multi-million dollar custom built vehicle. Our seventy five minutes of interactive fun also gave us a glimpse of Midtown Manhattan and Times Square.  The Ride comes complete with not one, but two hosts that will keep you laughing the entire time- Did I mention that The Ride(the bus) actually is part of the entertainment? It talks, laughs and bounces along to the fun.



You will definitely have to keep your eyes peeled because along the way you will encounter five to seven street performances that will interact with The Ride, the hosts, and the people on board! If you listen closely you may even hear your own name or the names of your friends. If you are celebrating a birthday or special occasion be sure to mention it to the hostesses.  There will also be trivia, karaoke and more fun than you can ever imagine. Think Broadway combined with a comedy show and city tour, that’s kind of what is happening during The Ride. The advanced audio and visual technology is something that will just enhance the trip. There are over three thousand L.E.D. lights, Plasma TV screens, and surround sound! Honestly, this is something you have to be a part of to believe it. As for views- one word- incredible! There was even a giveaway on The Ride. Emily happen to be the winner of an awesome pair of themed sunglasses. TheRideAs if the entire experience did not keep us entertained enough, The Ride ends with the entire group of newly made friends singing New York, New York! If you have a chance to be a part of The Ride, do not let it pass you by. Since our ride they have added specialty rides based on holidays and other themes during different months of the year. You can check out all things including times and pricing for The Ride right here: See on The Ride, or on the street! The Ride definitely summons a crowd of waving fans as it passes through the streets of New York City!



 Check out our fun video of a bit of a sneak peek of our fun time on The Ride! Laugh, Joke, Sing, and just Enjoy The Ride!

Skylanders Celebrates 5th Anniversary With Cake Masters Portal Cake! @skylandersgame @foodnetwork

Skylanders Celebrates 5th Anniversary With Cake Masters Portal Cake! Skylanders “Cake Masters” Premiere Party- Watch Party!       


If you are like my family you love Skylanders! From the moment Skylanders was first introduced to us- we fell in absolute love with the game, the characters and the portal! It’s hard to believe that Skylanders by Activision is celebrating their fifth anniversary. To kick of the celebration Duff Goldman of Cake Masters and his Hollywood crew took on the task of creating a one of a kind Skylanders  video game massive cake. Duff definitely surprised everyone with an epic Skylanders cake transformation that came to life before everyone’s eyes. The beloved kids video game franchise- @SkylandersGame, chose right when they enlisted the help of famed cake decorator Duff Goldman, to create a life sized, edible and playable cake. Yes, playable! There was a gigantic working portal in the middle of the cake!  The adventure was captured on camera for Duff’s newest show Cake Masters, that premiered on Food Network.


Since our gamer family has spent endless hours traveling through portals with our favorite Skylanders characters we could not help but join in the anniversary celebration with a Skylanders 5th Anniversary party of our own. Really, can you blame us? We started out with our own box of blueberry Duff cake box mix and created our own version of a Skylanders 5th Anniversary cake. Okay, so it was nothing in comparison to the Cake Masters, BUT it was delicious and there were no complaints at all.

skylanders4skylanders3If you love Skylanders you should definitely grab some party supplies and have a party of your own. You really don’t need a reason to celebrate. You can just have a Skylanders party with your favorite gamers! Cake and playing Skylanders is a perfect night in my eyes! You can check out more of our party fun on the video below from our Snapchat: Threedecades snaps!

We had a blast hosting our own Cake Masters Watch Party! Two of our favorite things- Skylanders and Cake! Does it get any better? Check out more about Cake Masters and the premier episode here:
