Well surprise surprise, I liked Guardians of the Galaxy.  OK, that may not be entirely unexpected.  What will be surprising to those that watch it is how much they enjoy watching it too.  Guardians of the Galaxy is a Marvel movie, but it feels like a sci-fi/action movie.  It’s easily the best movie that Marvel has done.  The film is more fun than The Avengers and is the only one from Marvel that I’ve immediately wanted to see again.

In the near future the family and I are going to be taking a nice picnic to a place we haven’t been before.  I’m excited for one reason because we’ll be taking  Frito-Lay Skylanders® Flavor Mix 20 count variety pack.  This limited time  variety pack features a dog gone Skylanders® character that is on fire.

Parenting, family, pets and the 100 shades of green

July 31, 2014

Next summer the kids won’t have the same interests. As a parent I’m sure that their interests will be fulfilling and suit them perfectly. Part of me wants them just to stop where they are, so that I can spend as much time as possible here. Ultimately, and selfishly, as the ocean that is never the same or is the sleepy dog under the dining room table, I know that’s not possible. The only option is to spend time with them and appreciate them for what they’re doing and who they are, regardless of their age.

Aerial America: Southwest Collection-armchair travel & more

July 29, 2014

How does a dessert state get their water? The channel that cuts through the state is given good time for explanation also.
What surprised me was how entertaining all of this education was. The visuals are really pretty and are all chamber of commerce type images. When I was watching Aerial America I wanted them to do a program on this state or that region, just to be an armchair tourist.

Our summer’s day out with Snyder’s Of Hanover #PretzelGuys

July 28, 2014

The next trip is to the park where the kids can run, climb and laugh some energy out. Our smaller child is much more active at this age than his older brother. Everyone in the house exercises to some degree and we’ve recently undergone a sodium secession with our diet. We now look at how much salt is in food; don’t add salt on food when it’s not needed and stopped taking our daily dip in the Dead Sea.

The intersection of car & art: Dream Cars at the High Museum of Art

July 25, 2014

Dream Cars is at the High Museum until September 7 and has vehicles that should not exist. They look too weird, like something from a Terry Gilliam movie that was cut due to budget concerns. You’ll see a couple cars that look like James Bond vehicles from the 60’s or bubble cars from a sci-fi movie. They’re beautiful, odd and in perfect condition.
