Sesame Place Halloween

Sesame Place Halloween -The Count’s Spooktacular

Looking for an adorable place

to take your preschooler (and a little 0lder ) children trick or treating for Halloween and the weekends leading up to it?
We had the pleasure of going to Sesame Place this weekend. They had so many Halloween activities we could not even do them all in one day! The park is open 10-6 and will keep you hopping from one activity to the next. Our family had fun immediately upon arriving by taking a fun hay ride! The character on our hay ride was Telly Monster! We also had a nice hostess who sang songs and told stories! Once we entered the park the kids immediately wanted to Trick or Treat! There were so many stations set up throughout the park! We went to some fun Halloween themed shows
where the characters were dressed in Halloween costumes. Our family favorite was The Not Too Spooky Halloween Show, which included a fun ending with the song Thriller! We could not leave without relaxing a bit and watching The Rock Around the Block Parade, since the parade will change next season. We also played a few of the fun games and my son was lucky enough to win the jumbo Frog! The day could not have been any more fun! Happy Sesame Halloween!

King Tut Exhibit NYC

King Tut Exhibit NY

About a week ago my family and I visited the King Tut Exhibit hosted by Discovery! We toured with an audio guide. It was the first time I used the device. You just pressed the number of the display and the audio guide told you all about whatever you were looking at! It was great. You could go at your own pace and repeat something if you wanted to hear it again. There was room after room filled with artifacts found in King Tut’s Tomb. Although King Tut is actually NOT part of the exhibit, there are so many artifacts that it really does not even matter. There are chairs, masks, games, tools, etc. even one of the six chariots that were buried in the tomb with him! After the exhibit we also watched the King Tut 3d movie. It was short, but very interesting. If you get a chance to see the King Tut exhibit, give it a try. It will be there until Jan. 1st, 2011, then it heads back to Egypt. I’m glad that I did not miss it!

Dorney Park for Halloween

Dorney Park for Halloween Fun!

Over the weekend my family and I visited Dorney Park in Allentown, PA. We went for some early Halloween fun! Every weekend the park is open 10-5 for little kids. It’s called Boo Blast!We had fun seeing the Peanuts gang, Trick or Treating, fun rides, shows, and even a costume contest!(Emily even won a little Snoopy stuffed animal for “Sweetest Witch!” lol) Camp Snoopy as well as ALL the rides are open from 12 noon.

The park closes the kiddie rides at 5pm to get ready for the evening fun! The night fun is called “HAUNT” with 13 fearful attractions. There are seven outdoor haunted mazes, four indoor haunted houses, and two live shows. On top of that there are over 400 lives creatures lurking about..So, if you don’t want to be scared at Haunt you have to exit the park by 6pm, that is when the nite attractions begin. No matter which you choose, Dorney Park is definitely a lot of fun for Halloween! PS: Tix are more expensive at the gate, so if you plan to them online! Boo Blast and Haunt run until Halloween!

Alpha and Omega 3D – NYC Screening Premiere

Alpha and Omega

NYC Screening Premiere
A few days ago w
e were lucky enough to be invited to the Alpha and Omega NYC screening premiere at the Lincoln Square 13.
We really did not know much about the movie
before arriving at the theater, although we had a pretty good idea of the story line from all of the televised commercials.

When we arrived to the theater we were greeted with a smile. My children were happy to have their hands filled with Alpha and Omega wearable ear
s, posters, 3d rulers, crayons, activity books, word searches, coloring pages, etc! If that wasn’t enough, everyone was treated to an Alpha and Omega popcorn and soda/water pack! Once everyone was in the theater and seated we had the pleasure of having the movie introduced by Ken Katsumoto (producer) and another producer. They wished us all a “great movie”
and before you knew it the show was on. Everyone had on their 3D glasses and we were ready for the fun to begin!

The story is very family friendly and a lot of fun for all ages. My sons are 19 and 11, my daughter is 3 and they all enjoyed the film.

The 3D was
super and the story very entertaining.
Alpha and Omega represent the two rival groups of wolves in a conflict over territory. The movie is centered around Kate (an alpha) and Hum
phrey (an omega). It is a movie filled with fun, love, jokes, excitement and is just good family fun!

If you are looking for something fun to see at the movies this weekend don’t miss “Alpha and Omega 3d”! Enjoy! Alpha and Omega 3d opens September 17th nationwide.

Welcome to our Pirate Room at Carribbean Beach!

Pirate Room at Caribbean Beach Resort!

A Must for Pirate-Lovers!

Do you like pirates? They are a family favorite in this house, so we could not resist booking the Pirates Room at the Caribbean Beach Resort. We were definitely not disappointed!
As we entered our room
we were “taken over” by the pirate theme. It was wonderful. The beds were ships, with ship bottoms-complete with cannon holes! The fridge was a big barrel. The dressers were ship crates and pirate chests. My personal favorite was the curtain that separated the bedroom from the bathroom area. There was a fantastic pirate themed curtain

! At night when the lights were out, except for the bathroom area, the pirate seemed to be illuminated!
Of course, we did bring and pick up a few pirate items ourselves…like Mickey Pirate lollipops, pirates tattoos, pirate soap from the Basin, and Adam brought along his pirate hat and suitcase! If you have a chance to book the Pirate Room at CB, don’t miss out! It was arrrrgggggrageous!!
