Stuff, Stuff everywhere is how I have felt lately.

Exploring a big city can be a thrilling adventure. Between beautiful structures, history to learn, and stunning views (especially at night), my “to do list” when visiting has always been bigger than my bank account. I have used City Pass in Chicago before which allows visits to some of the best attractions in the Windy City.

I already have our tickets for all the places we are dying to visit together! Great thing is, with City Pass, the tickets are 44% less than if you bought them straight up. Now, THAT is more in line with my bank account! We love using City Pass!!
The Empire State Building has been on my bucket list for years now. My husband, he has been anxious to go to the 9/11 Memorial & Museum. We had plans to go while we were there in February but had a family emergency that cut our trip short (the day we were to go to the 9/11 Memorial & Museum)! Among the other places, we will be visiting with city pass include the American Museum of Natural History (for my history-buff of a husband), The Metropolitan Museum of Art (which will be more up my alley), and then we both are stoked about the Top of the Rock Observation Deck. We went to eat in the Rockefeller Center in February. I can only imagine the view from the observation deck! Seeing the Statue of Liberty from the boat will be much different than getting to experience walking right next to it!
My kids will be jealous. Maybe we will need to just buy some additional tickets and change it to a family trip! Thank you, City Pass for making traveling easier and more affordable! Give your child the gift of exploring the world around them!

This bag will be a great gift for any age group!
I have made it a point that each of my children knows how to prepare at least one meal.

Every fisherman has probably spent some time at some point watching the pros online or tv. One of the things I love about those shows is getting to see what happens under the water during the battle between fish and angler! I have often thought when bass fishing how cool it would be to be able to see that same kind of action with the fish I am catching. Using the GoFish Camera that dream is now a reality!

You can even purchase a float accessory to turn the camera into a bobber and with it above water, live stream your fishing action! Made with a rugged military exterior, this Camera is a welcomed addition to any anglers tackle box! The more you see the more you catch and the GoFish Camera is the perfect way to find that trophy fish!

Like most families today, we are always on the go. Whether kids sports games, trips to the grandparents (5 hours away), camping or out recent family vacation on a cruise (yes I wish I was still there) we are just busy. We love taking photos and videos with our phones and our kids always have their devices handy to play a game, watch a movie, or chat with friends.
The Zendure A8QC External Battery has been a game-changer for our family! When we start packing one of the first things we make sure we have is this battery! This battery can charge not one but 4 devices at one time! With a family of five, it takes away the arguments of who gets to charge next!
What I love most is how much power and how quick this battery is. It can charge a smartphone from 0 to 80% in 35 minutes. It can also charge them multiple times. For example, on a full charge, the Zendure A8QC External Battery can charge an iPhone 8 10.5 times!
Living where we do, we can get ice in the winter and occasionally hurricanes in the summer. In addition to being a must-have when we travel, this battery is part of our emergency plan for those times we lose power. We have been a couple of days without power and thanks to the Zendure A8QC External Battery have been able to stay connected with our phones to let our family know we were ok.
So whether you are on the go or preparing for those times when electricity is just out of reach, the Zendure A8QC External Battery is the perfect solution to keep your family charged and ready for all your adventures!
