Dragons: Race to the Edge on Netflix #StreamTeam #Dragons

I am a Netflix Stream Team member and have been given a Netflix membership to help facilitate my posts. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.

Our boys absolutely love the How to Train Your Dragon movies. When the first one came out years ago, we had to go out and get all the figures so they could have their very own pet dragons. So the first day when they saw the new Netflix Original series Dragons: Race to Edge pop up on the TV app, they were quite excited. And when my kids y find a show they enjoy, they don't watch one show a day. Oh no, they devour and entire series over just a couple days. I have no idea where they get that binge watching from. Hmmmmm.....

Killington Adventure Center #Giveaway #KillingtonMoms

Prize provided and fulfilled by by Killington Resort.

If you live in the New England region are looking for fun, affordable family getaways this summer, look no further than Killington Resort in Vermont. But wait, isn't Killington a ski resort? While that is very much true and what it is known for, in the warmer months Killington now offers their new Adventure Center, with activities for all ages to enjoy.

The new Adventure Center features 8 new attractions including an Alpine Mountain Coaster (opening late July), Skyride zipline, Terra-Maze and so much more. Each activity may be purchased individually but for maximum savings you can purchase an Adventure Center Day Pass.

Adventure Center Day Pass
$39 (ages 7+); $15 (ages 6 and under), includes:
  • Three rides on the Skyeride
  • Skye Ropes Course
  • Terra-Maze
  • 1 round of disc golf
  • Snowshed scenic lift ride
  • Add three rides on the Beast Coaster for a total of $59 (ages 7+.) Beast Coaster opening in late July.
  • Add a round-trip K-1 Express Gondola ride for an additional $15
Rider requirements

My family is headed there next week for some fun outdoor adventure and we can't wait! I am looking forward to some much needed nature time with my boys away from screens and electronic distractions. Though the procrastinator in me does need to scramble and get us some hiking shoes before we hit the trails. I myself am looking forward to the scenic rides up the mountain and then hiking our way back down and the Skyride zipline sounds awesome. My boys will most definitely enjoy the Terra Maze, with 5,000 square feet of feet-on-the-ground exploration fun. And I think I can get my ten year old to give the Skye Ropes a try (I'll watch from the ground, thank you very much). We're going to try and hit as many of the activities as we can that the kids meet the rider requirements for, so be sure to look for my review later in July!

School Is Out, Netflix Is In #StreamTeam

I am a Netflix Stream Team member and have been given a Netflix membership to help facilitate my posts. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.

We've been out of school for almost two weeks here in Connecticut, and the struggle with keeping the kids active and entertained has already started. While I by no means want to plop my kids in front of a screen all day, sometimes a little screen time is needed to break up the day. And once the ridiculous 90+ degrees days  with 90% humidity start settling in, we will look towards Netflix a bit more while we stay cool indoors. Thankfully, there is never a shortage of shows for kids of all ages to watch.

It is fun to bond with our kids over shows that we ourselves grew up with. Netflix has an assortment of older shows that we old folks once enjoyed as well as newer versions based on some classics. My kids have already devoured the entire season of the new Netflix Original Inspector Gadget, and then watched it all over again.

Inspector Gadget
Danger Mouse
My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic
Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends
Star Wars: The Clone Wars
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers
The Magic School Bus
The Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About That

Garfield and Friends
The Super Mario Bros Super Show!
The Smurfs 2
Scooby-Doo: Mystery Incorporated

New Shows for June
Netflix is always adding great content and this month we were gifted with another Netflix original series: Dragons: Race to the Edge. We just started watching the first few episodes this week and we are already hooked. What I love about Dreamworks animated movies and series is that they not only entertain the kids, but they entertain me as well.

What shows have your kids dug into on Netflix so far this summer?
