GoPro Cameras at Best Buy #GoProatBestBuy

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.

As a mom, a good camera to capture all of my kids special moments and silly moments and just every day moments is an absolute must. It may be a cliche, but they really do grow up so fast and I want to be able to capture those memories for us to hold onto forever. And you know, possibly embarrass them down the road as teenagers. We are also entering a new phase of parenting and that is sports. Sure my kids have been playing hockey for years, but my nine year old, for the first time, will be on a travel hockey team. So a camera that can take fast paced action photos is absolutely going to  be on my Christmas list this year.

This holiday season, Best Buy has cameras and accessories for everyone from the enthusiastic parent, like myself, to thrill seeking teens and everyone in between. Here is a peak at the line of new GoPro cameras.

GoPro HERO4 Black

GoPro HERO4 Black
The most advanced GoPro ever, featuring improved image quality and a 2x more powerful processor with 2x faster video frame rates1, HERO4 Black takes award‐winning GoPro performance to a whole new level.

GoPro HERO4 Silver

GoPro HERO4 Silver
The first-ever GoPro to feature a built-in touch display. Controlling The camera, playing back footage and adjusting settings is ultra-convenient—just view, tap and swipe the screen. With 1080p60 and 720p120 video, and 12MP photos at a staggering 30 frames per second, HERO4 Silver combines powerful, pro-quality capture with the convenience of a touch display.

GoPro HERO Waterproof Action Camera

Featuring high‐quality 1080p30 and 720p60 video, and 5MP photos up to 5 fps, HERO captures the same immersive footage that’s made GoPro one of the best-selling cameras in the world.
12x more powerful processor with 2x faster video frame rates

For me personally, I am eyeballing the GoPro HERO since it is very reasonably priced at $129 and is waterproof, which is such a huge bonus when you have a lot of kids.

Family Movie Night with Netflix #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. 

Part of getting back into the swing of the school year includes getting our Friday night traditions up and running again. This consists of pizza for the family, so mom gets a break from cooking, followed by popcorn and a movie (or show) on Netflix. Generally we try to select something we have never seen before, but sometimes we like to pick an old favorite.

Our most recently new to us viewing is the show SlugTerra. Quite honestly, my boys are a bit obsessed with it. On Family Movie Night we get about 3 episodes in and then we fill in every now and then on rainy days. With 39 episodes in total available on Netflix, this has had their attention for a while and we still have plenty more to watch.
