Date Night at Boulder Beach Waterpark (Plus Ticket Giveaway)

My family has been enjoying Silverwood Theme Park every summer for the past 19 years, but this is the first summer EVER that my husband and I decided to go without the kids! WAIT! WHAT??  No kids, just us... for a DATE NIGHT! Some of you may be thinking, date night?  YES!! Trust me when I say that we had such a great time and that everyone should have a date night at Silverwood at least once!

Since we had never experienced the park without kids, we weren't sure what to expect. Would it be fun without them? Would we be bored and ready to go home quickly?  Let me just say that we had a great time and have gone back just the two of us a few times since our first date!

Our date started off relaxing in the lazy river.  We each grabbed a tube, kicked back and enjoyed the float.  We have both said many times that we could just sit and float the lazy river all day long and be perfectly content and happy.  I always seem to be the one that ends up going under the water spouts, but it's all good! We enjoy everything about it... including people watching and the music.

Shark Week "Fin-Tastic" National Geographic Kids Book Collection (Review & Giveaway)

I believe that the love of reading begins at a very early age.  I read to both of my children while I was pregnant and have always encouraged them to look at books and read, even as toddlers.  Books let their imaginations run free and take them to places unknown.  Books also fill their minds with knowledge and facts that will fuel them for life!

Growing up, I remember reading and looking through my Dad's National Geographic books and I was always amazed at how interesting they were.  When my kids were young, I was introduced to National Geographic Kids books and instantly fell in love!  Now that my kids are older, I love gifting books to my nieces and nephews. Books make the perfect gift!

My daughter has been obsessed with sharks for years and can tell you just about anything you want to know about them!  She is my shark girl and Shark Week is going to be the only thing we're watching this week!

Whether your family is all about sinking their teeth into the amazing, jaw-dropping shows from the summertime pop culture phenomena of Shark Week and SharkFest or maybe Baby Shark is more your speed  (do-do-do-do-do!),  this is going to excite you!
