Our family is planning a big trip to Great Wolf Lodge Poconos this weekend and we are all getting very excited about it already! The bathing suits are out, the robes are packed and the flip-flops are by the door. The kids have their Magi Quest wands ready and I even noticed that stuffed Wiley snuck into the suitcase.
I am thrilled to tell you that I will be tweeting LIVE from Great Wolf Lodge Poconos on Saturday and Sunday!
Our family cannot wait to check out Snowland complete with snow, story time and Santa in the grand lobby. 
We are also ecstatic to see how the ground floor has been transformed! The last time we were there in May, everything was in a transitional stage. 

I have already heard so many great things about the Ten Paw Ally (the new bowling center), Story Explorers(an interactive story zone) and the new location of our family favorite-MagiQuest

3decades3kids Rainforest Cafe Breakfast With Santa and ChaCha

 Rainforest Cafe 
Breakfast With Santa and ChaCha

December 17th and 18th

Menlo Park Mall -NJ

Every year when December is within reach there is always something I can never resist. I have been to many, many breakfast with Santa throughout the years, but this one is one of the best around. Breakfast with Santa and ChaCha at the Rainforest Cafe in  Menlo Park Mall-New Jersey is wonderful. We have been going for   many years, since before Emily was born!
We already love the Rainforest Cafe, but combine that with Santa and Cha Cha and you can’t miss. 
You won’t find a better value around, with just $12.99 for adults and $9.99 for children you won’t be able to resist! The buffet breakfast is so delicious: sausage, eggs, pancakes, bacon, french toast, hash browns, donuts, fresh fruit and much more. You will not leave hungry, that’s for sure. There is also a drink bar with coffee, tea, milk and juice. 
Breakfast is delish!
One of the things I love about this breakfast is something unique that is done upon entering Rainforest Cafe. I guarantee you will not see this at just any Santa breakfast. Don’t look for Santa walking around- No way- You will find Santa swimming with the fish right in the fish tank! Believe or not, it’s really true!
Santa is magical!
But, don’t worry, Santa will magically disappear from the tank while you are busy dining and he will reappear later on to hear everything that is on your child’s list…and even yours, if you’d like!
The elves are there, too. They tell stories and even have a sing along with all of your favorite Christmas songs!
We adore the fish at Rainforest Cafe!
Your child may even be lucky enough to win the coloring contest! Adam and Emily have both won in the past and the prizes are very special! But, that’s to the wonderful direction of the General Manager, Sanjay Gupta, no one will leave empty handed. Every child there leaves with a Rainforest Cafe goodie bag! The parents get their own treat with a one time use 25% off coupon at the gift shoppe! Rainforest Cafe really knows how to make Breakfast with Santa and Cha Cha a huge success. 
Em had a l-o-n-g list! 
If this sounds like something you’d like to do, you are in luck! There are still two days of Breakfast with Santa fun left- December 17th and 18th. The breakfast starts at 8am sharp. Believe me when I tell you it is worth waking up early for. You won’t be disappointed!
Merry Christmas! There is no better place to celebrate than Rainforest Cafe!
If you do not live in the Menlo Park Mall -NJ area, you can check here for a Rainforest Cafe in your area.

Special thanks to Rainforest Cafe and Sanjay Gupta for making sure that we always leave with smiles on our faces. All opinions are that of 3decades3kids/Diane Sullivan.

ABBA You Can Dance 3decades3kids House Party!

ABBA You Can Dance
House Party
ABBA You Can Dance
For Nintendo Wii

Anyone that knows me, knows that my family and friends are always looking for a reason to celebrate and have fun, so when I was invited to host the 
ABBA You Can Dance House Party for Wii 
 I jumped at the idea.
The holidays are already a great reason to party and with 
ABBA in the house things just got better. 
So, disco ball-check! 
Delicious snacks and drinks-check!
Dim the lights-check!
Guests piling in-check!
ABBA You Can Dance ready to roll-check!
Let the FUN begin-check!

I am a party person, I am not much of a video game person, but the new dancing games and ABBA You Can Dance have even gotten me hooked!
If you are an ABBA fan(or even if you’re not), you will love this dance game.
The music is energetic and ANYONE can do it! I know because I did it and I am NOT good at any kind of video game! My 5 year old daughter even tried it and loved it! The music is fun and the dance patterns are easy to follow. You can dance alone or with a friend, or up to four people. My two friends tried it together and had the entire house rolling 
with laughter watching them do the moves in sync(well, almost in sync).

Fun Snacks including my very own ABBA  treats!
This game is so much fun to play and would be hit if you played it alone, with a friend and it’s even extra fun to play at a party!
My favorite feature of the game was the fun factor and not being embarrassed because I could not do the moves. Most of the people at the party gave the game a try and they all agreed that it was a pure delight to play. You could not help but have a good time and laugh as friends came more and more out of their shells to the tunes of Dancing Queen, Fernando, Mama Mia, Does Your Mother Know and more! You can choose from twenty six ABBA songs that have been digitally remastered for your game system. There is even a karaoke mode for your singing friends!
 We partied around the Christmas tree with fun that lasted for hours. If you are looking for a great gift for someone young or not so young, this is perfect! The ABBA You Can Dance was absolutely titled perfectly! You really can dance with this one and it will create memories your family will be talking about for days or weeks to come. Our family has already played  it a few times since the house party and I think it’s going to get a lot of wear and tear over the holidays and at our New Year’s Eve party!
