Win KUNG FU PANDA 3 #PandaInsiders and Have a #PandaNightIn

We warned you! Prepare for a pand-tastic summer adventure as Po – reunited with his long-lost father – journeys to a secret village and meets countless panda friends and family! But when the supernatural villain Kai challenges all the Kung Fu masters across China, Po must discover the teacher within himself and train his clumsy brethren to become the ultimate band of Kung Fu Pandas! KUNG FU PANDA 3 AWESOME EDITION is now out on Digital HD and Blu-ray™ and DVD.


My son loved this movie, and we had a great time watching it. He finds Po hilarious, and he has enjoyed all the movies.  We got to get ready for our Panda Party with his friends in style. There was a fun package full of pandas, keychains, reusable teabags, a dumpling book, and more. He was excited to share not only the movie but also the pandas with his best buddies.


We would like to try our hand at dumpling making, but for this party, we got lazy and just ordered Chinese food. I’ve never made them before, and I have a feeling it will take me a few tries before I really get the hang of it.  My son likes to cook with us, so I think he will have fun figuring it out with me.


We had some fun Chinese food (including dumplings, of course) while we watched the movie.  Since they are Po’s favorite, we had to get some for our movie night. These are crab and shrimp, which are my son’s favorite. He likes both steamed and fried- have you tried them like this?


My son also liked all the little pandas eating all the noodles and dumplings in the movie, and wanted himself and his friends to have noodles and dumplings while watching the movie.


Check out this fun clip from the new movie. The clip, voiced by Po (Jack Black), delves into the history and background of the supernatural villain Kai and the origin of his frightening jade Jombies!

WIN Alvin and the Chipmunks The Road Chip DVD #AlvinInsiders #FamilyRoadChip


It is that time again, for a new Alvin and The Chipmunks movie.  This time, we follow the hilarious antics of our favorite singing woodland creatures as they go cross country to save their friendship- or is it their family?  This movie is meant for the little ones in the audience and as such, the story line is easy to follow. Dave, the Chipmunks manager/father figure, is enjoying time with his new girlfriend Samantha, and they go on a trip to Miami.


The chipmunks suspect there are other plans afoot, an engagement and try to foil Dave’s plan.  Their main issue with the engagement is having Samantha’s son Miles in their lives.  Not a nice kid. In an increasingly chaotic adventure, the Chipumks and Miles team up to get to Miami and work together to bring Dave and Samantha apart.  In the process, they all learn about working together and get closer then expected.


My son loved this movie.  He likes the songs, and the Chipmunks TV show is one he has always enjoyed.


Alvin also enjoyed taking a “Road Chip” of his own with us to NYC.  He had so  much fun with my son as we traveled around, and explored some of the most fun spots and famous places in the city.  Here he is at the Museum of Natural History.


He joined us at our 4H Club meeting.


He enjoyed sitting on the iconic “Wayne’s World” couch and set at the SNL Exhibit- still open and worth the visit!


He saw the majesty that was “King Tut” at the pop up exhibit- so much gold!  He was just blown away, ha.


Sadly, he was eaten by Spongebob Squarepants at Madame Tussauds.  It was a dark, tragic day.
