A Fun App for Children: Muzzle Puzzle #ios #app #spon

My daughter has an iPhone 4 and I asked if she would download Muzzle Puzzle to have a looksie since I was asked my opinion on this game for your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

When I asked my daughter what she thought about Muzzle Puzzle she told me that this is a pretty cool, fun game that reminds her of a game called Flow but much funner. Now, I have no clue what Flow is but apparently Muzzle Puzzle is a lot more fun than Flow, at least according to my tween daughter. Must mean something good. Muzzle Puzzle is a free game app for your iOS 5.0 or higher. This app has been optimized for iPhone 5 as well.

This game may sound simple enough but it’s not so simple, download this free Muzzle Puzzle app so that the whole family can have fun trying to get more matches then the next family member. You must match each adorable monster with it’s identical partner on the game screen, but there’s a catch – no two lines can go over the other. This means you have to use your brain and thinking ahead skills to really make sure you are matching the monsters in Muzzle Puzzle up correctly. With 150 levels, Muzzle Puzzle is sure to keep your family on their toes trying to get the best high score. Once Muzzle Puzzle reaches level 50 the game turns into more of a challenge that even the most puzzle savvy adult will enjoy trying to solve.

Download Muzzle Puzzle today on the app store for free and tell me what you think of it!

Using Personal Best Pro on the App Store for my Sports Child #app #spon #free #apple

Today I am sharing Personal Best Pro app for the sports families, whether it’s you or the children who play sports this is a great app to keep track of the achievements, events or other goals met in sports. Easily add users in the home screen to create a family account. Each user may have an image assigned, name and date of birth. After each user is put into Personal Best Pro iOS app then you can start to add sports and achievements for each sport.

Personal Best Pro

An easy way to remember various achievements your children or yourself have made and maybe even celebrate! I am a Mom who may be found doing a happy dance for each achievement my children make; currently my two boys are in wrestling and it’s their first year. This is my season to start happy dancing around because they did a bridge stretch higher than they did on the last practice or they started to use a wrestling move more efficiently than they did in their first week of wrestling. Whatever achievement my sons make, it’s great to have Personal Best Pro app installed so I have notes right there, this is also a great app to assist me to reviewing my son’s achievements at wrestling to tell their Dad. My son’s Dad and I are divorced, we co-parent together so this means I have to try to jot down weekly achievements to let their Dad know with a report during the week or in their folder we exchange for news and notices.

Personal Best Pro Free iOS app

I just love this app because really the Personal Best Pro will assist me in being better at logging activities my son’s complete in their sports through out the year. During next school year when my daughter cheers and middle child is in soccer, I can also monitor their achievements and it will be fabulous to have an app in hand to do that with.

I say you take a second to go check out Personal Best Pro in the app store if you have sports running in your family – again this can be for the adults or children; it really is a useful tool to keep track of achievements that will 1) allow you to push harder next time and 2) celebrate goals reached in sports. 

Personal Best Pro is free at the app store.

Handable Helps me Not Cringe when Daughter Holding iPhone #cell #holidaygift #spon

gift guide sponsors

I am so happy to have The HandAble Phone Holder as part of my holiday gift guide this year, seriously. This has been a fantastic product to have because my daughter now has an iPhone. Obviously it was a difficult decision giving my child such an expensive cell phone, but in all honesty it just made sense for our plan. The cost was more effective than us all having different devices. I must admit though, I cringe each time my tweenager has her iPhone in her hand either texting, reading an ebook or playing a game. My daughter has my clumsy gene and is often found stumbling this way and that, I would hate to see that iPhone take a flying leap and with HandAble, she has a better grip on her iPhone. Thank Goodness!

Handable

Basically in a nutshell, HandAble Phone Holder is a one size fits all accessory for your mobile device and will help keep the device from falling out of your hands. Nothing is worse than holding your cell phone when all of a sudden it just slips out of your hand, it has happened many times to me but also happens to others in my household. It’s easy to have happen. HandAble has a video to share with you all, check it out on HandAble YouTube Channel or watch below …

HandAble Phone Holder can connect to your tablet, mobile device and ebook readers as well, in addition to that, you can mount HandAble Phone Holder easily to your protective case. Learn more at HandAble.com

An Apple Picking We Will Go – Wellwood Orchards Again #VT #applepicking #family

I made a quick phone call last Sunday morning to see if it was still apple picking season, the tween and teen laughed their butts off at how I called and asked such a thing. I guess I amuse the children from time to time. Okay, I amuse them all daily. The thing is, we wanted to take my boyfriend’s children apple picking because they were not with us when we originally had planned to take them.

Wellwood Orchards Petting Animal Area

The kids just loved petting all of the animals in the animal petting area which costs 50 cents per person, I swear k-man wanted to bring home that black and white bunny. The boyfriend also noted that he wants a pet bunny. Ah – no.

Wagon Ride to the Apple Orchard

After petting all of the animals I went inside to pay for the bushel of apples, just like last time for $26. We hopped on a wagon to and from the orchard at Wellwood Orchards to get our apples.

Girls picking apples

Even though it was nearing the end of apple picking season, we found that the apple selection was larger this time around. The apples were larger and so much tastier than the last time we visited Wellwood Orchards to go apple picking. My Dad told me this is because the apples need time to grow and get so much sun and growth time to mature to their best taste. I must say this was the perfect time of year to pick apples, and I am looking forward to making apple crisp the next family weekend we have with all five kids.

Family at Wellwood Orchards

It was a beautiful day and we much enjoyed picking apples together as a complete family. We came home with about 50lbs of apples this time and if we were to purchase that many apples in store it would cost about $50 at the least these days, I say half price is perfect! Sure it takes work to pick apples, but seriously you get to save money on the cost of in store apple purchases and you get to enjoy family fun together.

Adventures in Apple Picking at Wellwood Orchard #NH #VT #apples

We had planned to go apple picking over the weekend, ultimately the plan was to have all five of our blended family kids together but that didn’t work out as planned so it was just myself, the boyfriend and my three children. Sadly his children were missed. Saturday came and we were all excited about apple picking for the first time, my daughter goes every year to Wellwood Orchard with her Dad but never had she gone with me and I have never taken the boys nor gone myself. This was a first time experience for us to apple pick as a family and while part of our family wasn’t there, they were there in spirit and hopefully they can make it on our next apple picking adventure.

 Wellwood Orchard

We started off by visiting the petting zoo area at Wellwood Orchards in Springfield, VT where you pay 50 cents per person to get into the animal pen area. There are bunnies, goats, chickens, peacocks, baby cows and much more that you can walk right up to and pet.  We used hand sanitizer after to ensure our hands were clean from petting all of those cute farm animals.

Apple Cider Wagon Rides Wellwood Orchard

You can then grab some hot apple cider for $1.00 while waiting to pay for your 1/2 bushel or more of apple picking bags. Take a picture outside with your face in an apple or other such items, there’s even a bee. Then hop onto the wagon ride {during weekend hours} to be brought up to the apple orchard.

Wooden Fun Silly Signs at Wellwood Orchard

I think the boys, mainly my little actor K-man, had a blast with the silly wooden signs that you can stick your face into. I had a ball snapping pictures, and with my new iOs 7 operating system on my iPhone the camera can snap pics one after another, making action moments captured in a fun sequence to later create a collage with Picasa.

Family Fun Apple Picking in Vermont

Since I know my boys so well, mainly that little K-man, I had boys wear orange so that I could spot them should either plan to run away at the orchard. Thankfully, things went really well and all three kids truly had a great time picking apples. My oldest served more as a tour guide and she helped assist in what apples were best to pick since she was the experienced one of the group.

Happy Sons Apple PIcking

The total paid for in apples was one bushel, that was $26 total for the day we went and you can fill that bushel bag ( given in two 1/2 bushel sizes) as full as you can get it. Those boys were determined to hold their bags for as long as they possibly could.

Family Fun Wellwood Orchard

The day was perfect. The weather held up to be wonderful, later on that day it rained. The sunshine was warm enough to keep the cool Fall air comfortable and the kids said they had a blast! I now want to make this apple picking adventure part of our family tradition every Fall. We ended up with a total of 40lbs of apples, so keep your eyes out for various apple recipes as we have fun testing out different combinations with our apples to make delicious desserts and more with our 40lbs of apples we picked. Right now I have my Auntie B’s Picky Eater Applesauce Recipe live on site for you to test out.
