What I am loving on Netflix this month


If you are like any other red blooded  American, You have Netflix.
& Likewise, always looking for something new to watch.
What was that robot guy that would "help" you pick something out?
He rarely helped us, but every once in awhile he got it right.
I kind of miss his dull rumor.
Anyway, I am always wondering what everyone's "recently watched" list looks like, cause there is just SO much out there & I am looking for something new. SO I thought I would share what I've been loving this month, & play that robot guy for you.

1. Grace & Frankie


Praise the lord there is new episodes this month. I found this over the winter & was dying for new ones! New ones just rolled out May; so if you get to binging, you will have plenty to get you through.
I can't give a synopsis, because there is shock value (at least it was for me) in the first episode that is the main plot line through out. But take my word for it. It's so good. It has comedy & everything in between.

2. My Father The Hero


This was one of my absolute favorite movies growing up. I am un sure why. But it was & has continued to be. I nearly jumped off my bed when I saw it available as I haven't seen it since I lost the VHS. It's about a young girls rebellious self on a vacation with her father that has not exactly been a big part of her life. All the while creating a scheme of a false identity while of course, falling in love.
If that doesn't get you interested, a very young, beautiful Katherine Heigl should. It's a great Sunday afternoon movie!

3. Gilmore Girls


I am sure this one doesn't need much explaining. I've already seen nearly every episode but watching everyone to gear up for the reunion season was amazing. Spending my nights in Stars Hollow with Sukie, Loreali & Rory was the perfect closure of my day.

4. Bring It On

I mean, can we collectively agree that we were thrilled to see this on the "Recently Added" list? I proudly cheered that opening cheer without missing a beat after all these years.

5. Pleasantville


Another favorite from my pre teen year! I remember renting this VHS on Fridays several times!
This is a movie about a brother & sister getting transported into the brothers favorite black & white 50's sitcom television show. A young Paul Walker appearance will make you miss him even more than you already do. A must see.

6. Just Friends

Great comedy with Ryan Reynolds getting stuck in the "friend zone" during his teen years, that comes back to town as an adult as a total hunk trying to re kindle his love for his high school sweet heart.  If nothing else, watch the first 5 minutes of a chubby, brace face Ryan Reyonlds getting down to Boys II Men; you will find your self laughing and singing along.

7. Save the Last Dance


OH man, who doesn't love Julia Sties?? What happened to her? She was in every single one of my favorite 90's chick flicks. She was the perfect all American girl! No doubt she plays that role in this movie too. But moves to Chicago after tragedy & starts learning to be more "urban". All the while learning to a new dancing compared to her normal sophisticated ballet dance moves.

Comment with your favorite below! I am always needing more & maybe it will be on my next list!
See you next month!

Great Wolf Lodge 2016 / Traverse City / Clinch Park

We have a few favorite place, Disney being our first. But Great Wolf comes pretty close second!
We went again this year for Kensleys Birthday!
You can see the last time we went with posts on what to pack for you stay, & what there is to do at GWL:  HERE & HERE

We suprised the girls this time in the morning, by waking them really early & asking if they could choose anywhere to go that day {besides Disney World} where would they choose, knowing Kensley would choose GWL! 
They were SO surprised!

We got them all ready for the about 5 hour drive!
Again this time I suggest getting the printable on their website HERE



Before we took off! Violets in hand! I somehow didn't get a photo, but I had set out after we told them. New Violet stuff animals, ears, GWL shirts & all their coloring pages with their luggage packed. They were THRILLED.



I really slacked, but didn't at the same time ha! at photos. 
Brandon got a go pro for his birthday the week before and we took alot of video that I need edit through & will link!

The front desk surprised her with knowing it was her birthday again & with birthday ears!


We got the wolf den suite this time! They loved it!



our first night eating at the Critter Cafe. It was SO good, we need up eating her every night!




Fun at the bowling alley! One of our favorites!










Our second day was all about the birthday girl!













Getting to update their pillow cases!












They have special drinks with each character to order. My girls LOVED picking a new one each time.




color changing spoons were so cool to them!



Heres Kensley being sang to at storytime.
Which she loved, but to any shy girl was aboslutely mortified. She stared at her sister the whole time, who lovingly went up with her.














They were surprised by a knock on the door! It was Violet, how perfect; with cookie & milk before bed!








I highly suggest adding breakfast on at booking!
Plus look, wolf print waffles. I mean, you gotta.






I only have one day of swim pics, our third day. opps.
















 

















brain freeze





more changing color spoons
We skipped the spa this time & did the arcade! They had some games the girls really enjoyed!






When we left we had plans to visit the near by dunes.
We ended up running out of time, so we just went to the nearest beach, which was about 5 minute away.
It was a pretty warm day for April but rather chilly with the water wind.
We still enjoyed a quick visit though.
It was so so beautiful.
The sand was nice & warm til you got a little deep. The girls loved that.
The view looked like we were someone out west. Just gourg.

LOL the sun was so bright.






who's that hunk??



The water was crazy clear. you could see down the bottom everywhere.



If you made it through ALL those pictures, you get a virtual gold star! ;)
