I have said over and over again that I love fairytales and fantasies because good always wins over evil. Just like in real life, though we don’t see it all the time God wins against evil, sure he loses a battle occasionally but the he will get final victory! Do you ever talk to your kids about the lessons that from movies such as the Amazing Spider Man 2.

Here is the official trailer to The Amazing Spider Man 2. It looks like it is going to be an awesome movie!


I have previewed the The Amazing Spider Man 2 Discussion Guide and think it is a great resource for families to use before watching the movie. The guide is 5 pages long and would make a great family devotional. Each section has a Bible verse about the topic being discussed, how it relates to The Amazing Spider Man 2 movie, and then asks about 3 discussion questions. Most of the questions are easy enough for young children to answer, but thought provoking enough to have an engaging conversation with teens and the adults in the family. If you have preschool/kinder aged kids you would need to to bring the questions down to their level. I went through the guide with Kimmie, a family friend, and it got her thinking about her choices and how she had influence over others.  The discussion guide for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is a great resource for families to discuss a range of important themes that include the relationship between personal choices and destiny, living a life that counts, sacrificing yourself in service to others, and the nature of power. This guide will help parents start (or continue) conversations with their children that will inspire them to think outside themselves and challenge them to live lives that matter. The conversations that will result from using this guide will reveal that even the most explosive summer blockbuster can leave lasting, positive impacts on its young viewers.

MAKE A SPLASH WITH SEAWORLD CAMPS

SeaWorld Campers Meet a Magellanic Penguin Hi Res

Orlando, Fla. (April 16, 2014) — Looking to expand interests this summer for your children and their friends?  SeaWorld Camps™ offer educational, fun and exciting encounters for kids of all ages and include up-close experiences with marine animals that encourage a lifelong passion for wildlife and the environment.

Campers are immersed in the wonders of the sea through up-close animal discoveries, exclusive behind-the-scenes opportunities and amazing attractions, rides and shows. The opportunities campers receive are unequaled – first-hand experiences with veterinarians, animal trainers and animal care staff.  SeaWorld Camps not only allow children to surround themselves with aquatic life and education, but they are also about making friends, having fun, exploring the great outdoors, riding world-class coasters and creating lifelong memories.

SeaWorld Camps offer a learning environment that fosters exploration, inquiry, self-discovery and self-esteem with two offerings: traditional Day Camps and “sleep-away” Resident Camps.

SeaWorld Camps in Orlando include:

  • Day Camps: During their particular week at SeaWorld Camp, participants learn about a variety of animals, including whales, dolphins, penguins and sea lions. Campers will focus on a different animal each day and learn about them through songs, take-home arts and crafts, as well as by talking with our zoological staff. Day Camps are offered for children going into preschool through 8th grade. Lunch, snacks, a camp T-shirt and water bottle are included.
  • Resident “Sleep-away” Camps:  Make it a summer to remember for students going into 7-12th grade with a Career Camp. Campers experience what it takes to train and work with marine animals and have the opportunity to touch a penguin, snorkel in a shark cage, work with the animal care staff and create an enriching environment for our animals. Plus, participants have the opportunity to spend a day at Discovery Cove® swimming with dolphins, snorkeling with tropical fish and rays and feeding exotic birds in a free-flight aviary.  Resident Camp fees include all camp activities, lodging onsite at SeaWorld® and at our partner hotel for five nights, plus all meals and snacks. Supervision and guidance is provided 24 hours a day for the entire duration.  Many campers fly in from around the country, and our dedicated camp staff picks them up at Orlando International Airport and brings them to SeaWorld to start their camp experience.

For nearly 25 years, SeaWorld has provided safe, fun and educational camp experiences for kids of all ages—in the not-so-traditional setting of a world-class theme park. In the last 10 years, more than 250,000 youth have attended a SeaWorld and Busch Gardens® Camp.   For more information, visitSeaWorldCamps.com/Orlando, or call 1-800-406-2244.

About SeaWorld CampsTM

SeaWorld Camps are accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA), a nationally recognized association focused on health, safety and program quality. ACA assists the public to choose camps and works to preserve, promote and improve the camp experience.

 

A study by the American Camp Association (ACA) revealed that over 90 percent of campers felt their summer camp experience made them feel good about themselves and helped them make new friends. 70 percent of parents said that summer camp improved their child’s self-confidence.

Once Upon a Time, season 3 episode 17 “The Jolly Roger” recap and review (***SPOILER ALERT***)

822x (2)

[Funny story: we were having stormy weather the night that the DVR recorded this episode and apparently also in nearby Henry County. So, throughout the show, there was a little storm map in the corner of the screen that read, "Severe Thunderstorm Watch: Henry."]

Our episode opens with a carriage being robbed. No, it’s not Robin Hood. It’s a suit of armor! A knight? No, it’s Hook dressed as a knight. And he has his “merry” band of pirates stashed around them in the woods to light flaming arrows so that it looks like a whole army is surrounding them. The men guarding the carriage run away and leave the “pirates” with the carriage and the treasure. Hook remarks that you don’t need a ship to be a pirate and we wonder what happened to the Jolly Roger…lose it in a poker game? Back at ye olde watering hole, the crew celebrates and there are some jokes about Smee not being a literal rat anymore. They have pitched in and rented him a wench. Not the heavy machinery-type wench, but the hooker-type wench. He leaves with her and then pays her off. He tells her to tell the guys she had a good time in the morning to save his image, but he is still hung up on Emma. What is it with men? Can’t they be honest? Is it really weakness to be in love? Do you have to pretend to sleep with prostitutes to be a real man? Sheesh. Then he finds himself with a blade to his throat and Ariel is sitting on him. [click to continue…]

Disney’s Electrical Water Pageant

Disney's Electrical Water Pageant- Pixie Dust Savings

 

Have you ever seen the Electrical Water Pageant Parade that takes place on the Seven Seas Lagoon? To me it is one of those hidden gems you can find. One of the best perks of this parade is that park admission is not needed. This parade is about 15 minutes long and is reminiscent of the main street electrical parade. Beautiful dancing lights in shapes of sea creatures parade across the Seven Seas Lagoon. At the end of the parade there is an American tribute with patriotic songs and the stars and stripes!

Here are the spots and times to see this parade:

  • Disney’s Polynesian Resort – Beginning at 9:00 PM
  • Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa (including Narcoossee’s) – Beginning at 9:15 PM
  • Disney’s Wilderness Lodge – Beginning at 9:30 PM
  • Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground – Beginning at 9:45 PM
  • Disney’s Contemporary Resort – Beginning at 10:10 PM; in instances when Wishes Nighttime Spectacular takes place at 10:00 PM, the Electrical Water Pageant will begin shortly following its conclusion
  • Right outside the entrance of Magic Kingdom park – Beginning at 10:35 PM, during Extended Theme Park Hours only
  • The Ticket and Transportation Center is another great place to catch this parade!

Please note that all show times are approximate and may vary by several minutes. All entertainment is subject to change and may be cancelled in cases of inclement weather.
