red-jacket-beachwinApril School Vacation at Red Jacket Beach Resort! 
4/20/15 – 4/25/15

Last fall the family and I trucked it on up to the White Mountains. We stayed at the Red Jacket Mountain View Resort. We had so much at the Resort and Kahuna Laguna. We also visited nearby Storyland. A really great weekend.

This weekend we’re headed south, to the Cape and The Red Jacket Resort in South Yarmouth. We are looking forward to April Adventures Family Week at “The Beach”.

There we will be a myriad of activities for all ages.  The popular Kids’ Klub will be in session all week and Markus and Angelique Steelgrave will be there to add more than a touch of magic to vacation days.  Plus kite making, “Paint & Wine” nights, X Box One tournaments, culinary demonstrations, martini samplings, s’more nights at the beach campfire, movies on the big screen, an in-house caricaturist, and much more.  And, while the kids are being entertained, the Otis Cole Aveda Exclusive Spa is available to pamper ME with special value treatments.

You can see a sample of the activities on the booking page!

Happy Everything 2014

xmas20141

I have been saying NO to my kids for so long about getting a video game that they have stopped asking. So I figured it was a good time to get it for them. They would never see it coming!

You know how much I love surprising them, it’s my favorite thing!

Wait till you see. They really never saw. it. coming. They still weren’t sure after they reacted and were looking right at it. SO funny!

Then they danced :-)

Happy Everything to you and yours!

We wish you all kinds of great surprises and awesome dance breaks all year long.
Happy 2015!

Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer: The Musical – A review

Rudolph1

Yesterday I posted to my Facebook page that we were headed “Off to Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer- The Musical! “She thinks I’m cute. She thinks I’m cute!” The TV show on stage.”

To which someone replied “How do you all do this on weeknights? I won tickets but had to turn them down because I fear my kids would be dysfunctionally tired the next day.”

Perhaps my kids ARE dysfunctionally tired the next day. But they’re at school. I have no idea :-) I keed, I keed!

My oldest frequently stays up MUCH later than we were out last night. My middle is a trooper, like all the time. She is a classic no drama middle child. My youngest rests on me during the whole show and promptly falls asleep as soon as he gets home.

Are they tired the next day? Yes. Dysfunctionally? No. They all got up and did everything they were supposed to do and off they went to school. Will it effect their school day? Perhaps. But I think it’s worth it. I do ticket giveaways and reviews specifically so my kids have the opportunity to go to these events. And they LOVE it. I love that I’m am instilling in them an appreciation of theater and cultural events. They’re learning to be entertained by live performances and not just over the top special effects 3D ninja movies (although we love those too).

I will admit I did not have high hopes for this production. I don’t know why, call me a cynic, a pessimist. Whatever. I just did not think it was going to be good. I grew up watching Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. It’s a classic! I had no idea how that would translate to the stage as a musical. I was….skeptical.

It was SO cute and SO much fun! My kids loved loved it and I thought it did the original TV show much justice. They didn’t try to change it, which I think was my biggest fear. That the producers would try to re- interpret the show. It’s stayed true to the much loved 50 year old classic TV Christmas special. The story, sets, characters, and songs were all familiar. Even the voices were spot on! The crowd of parents delighted when Rudolph squealed “I’m cuuuuuute!” and broke out in applause when the Prospector first bounded on stage! Because it was familiar. We were connecting to it on a memory level. And it ended with a bouncing snow flake sing a long!

After it was over and we got in the car and noticed we’d be home before 9:00 I was even more pleased. Then I thought of Julia, the woman that commented on my status. I was sad that she didn’t get to go. They would have been home much earlier than she imagined!

To that point I think that it’s a great starter musical theater show. For kids who have never been to the theater or for moms afraid of keeping littles out too late – it’s perfect. The show starts at 7 and is over at 8:30. The theater is full of kids being kids. It’s a great place to teach your littles about how to behave in the theater without the fear that they will ruin the experience for others. Try taking a 4 year old to the Nutcracker and you’ll know what I mean :-)
