The live production rolls fire-breathing action, epic adventure and heartfelt laughter into an original captivating story set in the mythical world of Vikings and wild dragons. Based on the book by Cressida Cowell, it centers on Hiccup, a Viking teenager who doesn’t fit in with his tribe’s longstanding tradition of heroic dragon slayers. Hiccup’s world is turned upside down when he encounters a dragon that challenges him and his fellow Vikings to see the world from an entirely different point of view. The story presents a vision so grand in scale that only DreamWorks Animation and Global Creatures could bring How to Train Your Dragon to life in front of a live audience.

What to do with the kids when the weather is blistering hot and you just don’t want to go to the pool or beach one more time….How about a cooking class! Recently my daughter participated in a cooking class and she loved it! It was a fun, indoor activity and as an added bonus it was a drop off activity for a couple of hours. It gave me a chance to go do some errands and she had the opportunity to create some delicious treats. She made homemade pasta and cookies. The kids loved working in the kitchen and they were more than happy to eat the food that they made!

The Limited was a favorite of mine in high school and college as a place to shop. They had great clothes and provided many staple pieces for any wardrobe.
I was fortunate to be invited to the “new” Limited in their flagship store in Long Island New York’s Roosevelt Field. The grand opening was in the beginning of May 2012. The store has an upscale vibe with dark flooring and chandeliers. It provides a comfortable feeling and one that is inviting and warm. Your eye travels throughout the store following the various bright colors for spring, mixed with the traditional black and white pieces to balance a wardrobe.
There are some great features of the store. One is the fact you can shop for your whole outfit in one stop.
Not only is there a beautiful selection on clothes, but there is a shoe department and amazing jewelry selection as well.
You can complete your look and try it on in the modernized dressing rooms. Each room provides a “call” button that illuminates on the outside when pressed. This alerts a store representative that you need assistance and they will come to help you with your needs.
This store had some great trends for spring and summer and I can see why The Limited at Roosevelt Field is already becoming a popular place to shop!

The end of the year of Ballet/Tap is here! After a year of classes and not even one sneak peek allowed the doors finally opened yesterday for a preview of the upcoming dance recital. The girls were all in costume and really looked cute! It is a 5/6 year old class and Lauryn is one of the youngest in the class. I thought she did great! Check out the videos below to see what good dancers they have become:) Just as long as they keep smiling…they will be a big hit!
I think this is the last year I will get her to do Ballet/Tap…now she wants Hip Hop or Jazz. What kind of dance do your kids take? Should I try to get her to continue with the more classical dance of ballet and tap?
I think it should be fun, and if she is excited about being there then she will put more effort in. I can’t wait for the big show June 9!
Last night we went to see Phineas and Ferb..live. We brought our five year old and one of her friends. They were hooked from the minute the curtain opened! She really enjoys the cartoon and to see the characters come to life was amazing. Her friend told us that it, “was the best show she ever saw!”
The show was cute and appropriate in length and pace for the kids. There was plenty of singing, dancing and silliness. The show combined live actors portraying the characters and a large screen with graphics and cartoon features to enhance the show. The story line was similar to the cartoon, with Perry the Platypus on a secret agent mission and the kids inventing a device to combine fun ideas. They did a great job with costumes and entertaining music. The kids were out of their seats singing along and dancing. It was a fun night!
See when the show will be coming to your town:
When was the last time you went to the circus? For me it had been years until last night when we attended the opening night of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus called Dragons. 2012 is the year of the Dragon, and the theme was carried throughout the show. It was an exciting night from the start. I went with my husband and daughter and she brought along her friend. We met other friends at the circus which added to the fun!
Before the show there was an animal expo that featured many of the animals that were to perform that night. It was nice to get up close to the elephants, horses, and especially see the lions and tigers playing in their pens.
The show was very entertaining and featured numerous daring acts. There was always so much action it was hard to decide what to look at next! There were motorcycles on the tightrope and men that were launched high into the air using flexible balance beams. The girls did not disappoint either. They performed some amazing stunts in clear plastic bubbles hanging high above the circus floor. I was impressed with the caliber of performance and the amount of people involved in putting on such a spectacular show.
My daughter and her friend really enjoyed watching the horse riding tricks and the acrobats that were able to jump through flaming hoops! It was a great show and something the whole family will enjoy.
