Take Me Back to WonderWorks...

(The Jackson Five Family received complimentary passes. However all opinions are honest and my own!)
 
 
School is quickly approaching, but summer isn't over yet! Why not create some last minute fun with your family by visiting WonderWorks Indoor Amusement Park . There are 6 WonderWorks locations in the US and we recently took a trip to the one in Pigeon Forge, TN.
 
If you're not familiar with WonderWorks they are easily recognized by their looks --the buildings are 'upside down' from the exterior.
 
 
Once you step inside things turn right around and the real fun begins. With over 35,000 sq ft of hands on fun, your mind and body will be thoroughly entertained and challenged.
 
 
Do you dare test your toughness on a Bed of Nails like Jace did? Maybe playing with huge bubbles is more your thing, it was Grady's! Craig loved a fun game of laser tag with the boys and my fave part was looking tall and skinny in a fun mirror  --I couldn't resist!
 
 
There are more than 100 hands-on attractions to keep you busy during your day. Make sure you visit all 6 Wonder Zones including: Natural Disasters, Physical Challenge Zone, Light and Sound Zone, Space Discovery, Imagination Lab and the Far Out Art Gallery.
 
 
As if that weren't enough, WonderWorks also offers an Indoor Ropes Course, a Rock Climbing Wall, the fun Lazer Tag Arena that I mentioned earlier and the BEST magic show in Pigeon Forge --The Wonders of Magic! (additional fees may apply)
 
We had such a fun day at WonderWorks and will definitely be back some day!

Coffee, Lipgloss & Mascara --EnjoyEssential Graphic Tee


enjoyessential

I love a company that not only sells adorable clothing, but also gives back. Meet 'EnjoyEssential' a company that does just that! For every adorable (and affordable) tee that they sell, they give back by giving a meal to someone in need!
 
 
Today all I need is coffee, lipgloss and mascara. OK those are every day essentials in my world, just like my new EnjoyEssential long sleeve tee says. On these dreary Ohio days we've been having I've been living in this tee. It's super soft, has that broken-in, I've-had-it-forever feel and is perfect with jean shorts or yoga pants.
 
Coffee Lipgloss Mascara Tanks & Long Sleeves
 
 Love that it's available in a tank top too!
 
 
EnjoyEssential's not only carries women's sizes, but also available are Baby, Girls, Boys and the cutest Mommy + Me matching tees!

Step back in time at the Ohio Renaissance Festival --A fun day for the whole family!

 
Forget your cares and step back in time at the Ohio Renaissance Festival September 5th - October 25th in Waynesville, Ohio. The 30-acre re-created 16th Century English village offers 400 years of fun in a single days visit! The festival offers something for everyone featuring nearly 100 shows daily on 11 stages, over 135 unique arts and crafts shops, hearty food and drink, games of skill and human-powered rides to amuse all ages.

 

 Over 150 costumed characters welcome you to the village! Rub elbows with Royalty as you cheer your favorite knight to victory in the thrilling Full-armored Tournament Joust. Welcoming you to a festive day in the village are dueling swordsmen, rowdy pirates, nobles, peasants, and daring jugglers. The sprawling landscape is dotted with hundreds of unique shops in the Medieval Marketplace featuring many one-of-a-kind, hand-crafted items. See time-honored crafts of glassblowing, stone carving, blacksmithing, leather tooling, boot making, and more demonstrated. The air is filled with the scents and smells of the foods of the Renaissance period. Feast like Royalty on juicy, giant roasted turkey legs, fresh baked bread bowls overflowing with soups and stews, fish 'n chips, steak-on-a-stake, succulent roasted corn on the cob and a wide variety of the finest ales and wines. There's something for everyone's taste buds!

 

 Visitors of all ages will be amused by the games of skill and human-powered rides. Try your hand at archery and see if you're a modern-day Robin Hood, or climb the castle tower and rescue the lovely damsel in distress.
