Today's kids and even adults tend to spend more and more time indoors and miss out on all the exercise and fun they can have being outside, yes I'm guilty of this as well. We spend all day yesterday with a group of wonderful friends, our Discount Tire family, at the beach hanging out, and playing some outdoor games. One of those games is a new game called Rollors.
More often than not I get "what is it?" and "is it family friendly?"...absolutely it is family friendly! I was playing with my 4 year old, and several other small children. Rollors is a fun outdoor yard (or beach) game that is great for the whole family! The players "roll" disks at the goal and points are awarded to the player or team that positions their disk closest to the goal..each disk has a number on each side, so the number facing up is the points you add up to award the player or team closest to the goal. Think of horse shoes with disks your roll instead of toss, and a surprise element of chance! It comes with a convenient carry bag that allows your to bring Rollors with you wherever you go. Sets up in seconds on grass or on a smooth sandy surface (we had to smooth out an area to play).
The group really enjoyed playing and can't wait to get together again in a few weeks to play again! I think this may be our new favorite outdoor game!
Rollors are ASTM toy safety tested & approved, have large wooden pieces that fit and feel great in your hands and is for ages 4 years and up...so even the youngest ones can understand & join in the outdoor fun!
Rollors has won numerous awards including 2013 Product of the Year Award from Family Review Center & 2014 Men's Journal "Best Gear for 2014". With a suggested retail price of $39.95 its much cheaper than most video games you will buy plus it gets the whole family outdoors and moving! If you have amazon prime you can get free 2 day shipping and have it in time for next weekends get together!

KIDSEmbrace™ is set apart from our competitors by our people and their unequalled dedication to the product and service for our customers. We work closely with parents, reviewing their input, and in doing so we have delivered a product that is unmatched in safety, appearance, quality and comfort. Our team includes engineers who led development of the industry's most successful child safety seats. Our chief engineer serves as a consultant to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Federal agency that sets standards for vehicle safety. Rest assured, this is not only a fun product, the KIDSEmbrace™ child safety seat is also one of the safest seats available today. Our 5-point harness design was developed in partnership with the European company Sabelt®, the race-tested supplier of safety harness systems to NASCAR® and Formula 1™ race teams. In sudden stops or crashes, the KIDSEmbrace™ seat controls forward movement of the child's head using our own patent-pending high-position top tether system, which allows the head support to rise and lower with the tether in place. The KIDSEmbrace™ car seat offers side-impact protection and our deeper "wraparound" headrest design shields the sides of your child's face from flying glass in event of a collision. In fact, no other child safety seat on the market has the same combination of features as this one. We are providing the highest quality product, conceived by a veteran design team and engineered to NHTSA rigid crash test standards and our own rigorous KIDSEmbrace™ quality standards.

I am always looking for fun ways to make sure my kids continue to learn, even in the summer. Of course reading books and doing worksheets doesn't excite them much...It feels too much like being in school!
During our Wyndham Weekends adventure, I was able to fit in a lot of educational activities that were just plain FUN. First, we learned about marine life at the Greater Cleveland Aquarium. The kids absolutely loved it, once they got past their fear of real life fish! (Hey, they're 3 and 4 years old!)
The next day, we had my teenager with us as well, so we decided to hit the Great Lakes Science Center. Kyle is almost 15, and he is very interested in anything scientific. Whether it's space travel, electricity, how the human body works, or the science behind music and sound, he gets really excited. The Great Lakes Science Center offers all of these things and more, with loads of hands-on activities for kids of all ages.

Did you know that you can actually become "nose blind" to the odors in your home? Think about it for a moment...You are surrounded by certain scents all the time. Maybe you have pets, smelly teenagers, or God forbid, have a child in diapers. (We have all 3 of these things!) These things can produce some pretty funkified scents, but chances are, you're so used to it that you don't even notice. However, guests DO. You see, your "normal" smells may be completely different than the ones they have in their homes.
Recently, we had the opportunity to conduct a #NoseBlind experiment, with the help of the folks at Febreze. We received a nice package of Febreze products and some simple instructions: Invite a few friends over for a movie night, take some anonymous surveys, and then use Febreze products and take a final survey to see what changes there were in the predominant odors.
Before we began the movie, our guests took 2 surveys. These surveys determined what scents were the most apparent when they walked into my home. Now this thought was horrifying to me, since with diapers, 4 cats and 3 dogs, I know darn well that the scent can get kind of gross at times. It turns out, the predominant smells were the buttery popcorn I had popped, along with a hint of cat. (Ugh. Figures!)

It's really no secret that I am a total foodie. I love learning about food, cooking it, and of course, eating it! Whether it's good old American faire or something exotic from the other side of the planet, I just LOVE experimenting with different foods. I get very excited thinking about trying great new dishes. (If only those pesky calories didn't get in the way!)
So of course, I was very excited about our stay last weekend at the fabulous Wyndham Cleveland at Playhouse Square. You see, a lot of people don't know this, but Cleveland is definitely a foodie town. We have tons of great restaurants including some owned by Iron Chef Michael Symon, and we also have the amazing West Side Market. (This is THE place to head if you're looking for fresh, locally sourced meats, produce, and even ethnic specialties!) So basically, there are very high standards in Cleveland when it comes to eating. We take our food very, very seriously.
The Wyndham Cleveland at Playhouse Square offers not only a beautiful setting for weddings, conferences, parties and more; they also have some very skilled chefs at their on-site restaurant, Encore! who specialize in turning an ordinary meal or occasion into something truly extraordinary.
I'd love to share 2 different experiences I had at the Wyndham. First, there was a wonderful "Happy Hour" especially for the Wyndham Weekends Bloggers. How cool is that?! Then, I'd like to show you how fantastic dinner at their upscale restaurant, Encore! is, even for the kids!

When we were enjoying our Wyndham Weekend in Cleveland last week, one of the things we were most looking forward to was hitting the Greater Cleveland Aquarium. Sophie and Xander absolutely LOVE watching Finding Nemo, so we thought they'd love to see some gorgeous marine life up close and personal.
We arrived at the aquarium pretty early in the afternoon, since we wanted to have plenty of time to explore and learn. I think I have been here as a child, but I honestly don't remember much. I think I was just as excited as the kids were!
The very first thing we noticed about the Greater Cleveland Aquarium is that well, it doesn't really LOOK like an aquarium from the outside. This grand old brick building has an industrial feel to it, which was really pretty cool.
DAM Bloggers (Dad and Mom Bloggers) is a group of some of the most influential parenting bloggers in the country, with over 400 members and a combined reach well over 20,000,000 readers.
DAM Bloggers are parents, influencers and the people other American parents turn to for advice, tips and information.
With that in mind, the DAM Bloggers are voicing their opinions on the 2016 elections, hoping that you will get on board with our choice for the next president of the United States of America.
As a country, we have elected presidents based on intelligence, wealth and a number of other factors with little or no success. The DAM Bloggers are tired of the traditional “ stuffed suits” in Washington and have decided to go with a candidate that knows how to fill a “suit” to perfection. We have decided to pick our candidate based on looks. Pure 100% perfection. That’s it.
Join us in our support of Channing Tatum for president of the Unites States in 2016!
#Channing4prez is our efforts to get the “best man” into the White House and in front of the biggest stage in the world. Channing Tatum for President.
Why Channing Tatum?
o He looks amazing in a suit! Which gives him an upper hand on the foreign stage. Other foreign leaders will immediately be intimidated by the force of manliness that is President Channing Tatum.
o He knows how to deliver a line with perfection. Face it, that’s 50% of the job. Channing can “do” forceful, sad, thoughtful, intense and even smart, first take and with crystal clear perfection.
o Forget Obamacare, ll he has to do is remove his shirt and reveal that perfectly sculpted body and President Tatum, will inspire our leaders in Washington as well as the rest of the country to get into shape.
o World Peace? World leaders won’t know what hit them when they hit the hottest party in DC, at the coolest house in the world. One night hanging with President Tatum, problems will be solved and frowns turned upside down.
Forget grey haired old pontificators and career politicians. Channing Tatum is the best looking choice to lead our great country into a new and much better looking future.
#channing4prez- Share it, Like it, Tweet it, Pin it and help us get Channing Tatum in the White House.
