Six Flags Hurricane Harbor Contest!

With six boys ranging in age from 4 to 32 in our household, we are always looking for adventures that will fascinate them and not drain us financially. This past Christmas we invested in a season pass to Six Flags. #1 - it was a Christmas present and #2 - we have well used those passes already. We've been to Holiday in the Park, visited the park during it's special early open days in April and stopped in after a Ranger game to ride our favorite rides. In between those visits, we've managed to sneak in another handful of visits most of which have avoided the long, hot days of sumer when the waits can be at their longest. I would highly recommend this if you live close to a Six Flags theme park.

But what do you do when it's so hot that walking outside makes you feel as if you're melting and yet the rowdiness contained within your walls makes you feel as if you're in danger of losing your mind? Well, visit Six Flags Hurricane Harbor water park, of course!

Currently, US Coachways - the official tour bus of Six Flags - is running a contest for a FREE Family Four Pack of tickets to ANY Six Flags theme park location in the US. There are two ways to win - you can like them on Facebook where they choose a winner each week or you can take an Instagram selfie at the pool or beach and post it with the hashtag #summertimefun and tag @USCoachways to qualify. The best Instagram photo each week will win.

If you're not familar with them, US Coachways is a great family-owned company who provides a vast array of transportation services including motor coaches, limousines, party buses, and more to cities across the US.

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

I Cried the First Time I Watched My Son Wrestle

My middle son, Colt, told me not too long ago that he wanted to wrestle. We are a sports family, but wrestling has never been one of those sports. AND this child is on the spectrum . . . now, all that really means for him is that he's not going to pick up on any social hints you drop, he's incredibly literal, and he's finicky about sensations. Yes, the child who is finicky about sensations told me he wanted to wrestle - where people are constantly touching you and holding you down and forcing your body into positions you don't want it to be in. But I have always determined that I would not hold my children back by forcing artificial boundaries on them that they don't have for themselves - so if the boy wanted to wrestle, we were going to let him try it out.

A couple of weekends ago, we went to his first wrestling tournament. I was so naive. We were supposed to be there at 9 am, and, in all seriousness, I made plans for 11 am. I thought we would walk in, he would h…

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
Disney Character Clothes Pins-  OneMoreSunshine
Wave Phone Holders - If you need more information on what these are, you can see my previous post Top 5 Disney Necessities. Basically these are simple holders for a phone that Disney provides which is a cross between a cell p…
