Birthday Parties at Zap Zone!

*I received the birthday party for the purpose of this post. All opinions and stories are 100% my own. Naturally*

This past weekend, we celebrated Bella’s 9th birthday with her friends. NINE! I can’t believe my baby is nine years old. It’s so crazy to me. I know it’s cliché and all, but I can totally remember the day both kids were babies and it surely doesn’t seem that long ago! At any rate, Bella was turning nine years old and she really wanted to have a party at Zap Zone. She absolutely loves it there…shoot…who am I kidding, I love Zap Zone too! I’ve been going there since I was a kid!

 As soon as we arrived, we were greeted by our party coordinator. She was great! She took us to our party room, explained everything that was going to go on during the party and was always there to corral the kids! Before the guests arrived, I purchased a token package for the kids to each have 20 tokens. I decided that this would be their goody bag! I highly recommend taken advantage of this package for birthday parties! For 10 kids, it works out to $4 a kid. Can’t beat that and the kids went absolutely crazy when I told them I was giving them tokens to play the games. When I told them they got 20 tokens, their heads almost exploded!

Glo-Golf with a bunch of nine year old children is like playing putt-putt with 10 Happy Gilmore’s! When we got to the hole where you have to hit it through something and then it came out the other end, it reminded me of the windmill scene in the movie! Golf balls were flying everywhere, kids were getting frustrated because what was supposed to happen wasn’t happening, and I have to say, I was laughing like crazy!

After Glo-Golf, the kids ate pizza and we did cake and presents. Bella wanted a Frankenstein cake…I think I found her a pretty good Frankenstein cake!

The second half of the party was spent going on the bumper cars and playing the arcade games. The kids were laughing so hard and having an absolutely blast!

Birthday Parties with Zap Zone!!

Bella’s birthday is coming up. We’ve been tossing around ideas of good places to have a friend party. She wanted to do a sleepover birthday party at a hotel…she’s turning 9. Do kids do hotel birthday parties still?? I know it was a thing when I was in middle school. After telling her that I don’t know that her friends parents would be OK with a hotel party, we started thinking about all the places around us. Then we came up with Zap Zone, one of our favorite places to go!

Mini Vacay Yesterday!


Yesterday my husband and I, along with our kids, drove up to just past Grand Rapids to hang out with my husbands family at a beach on Lake Michigan. It was SOOOO much fun. I cannot even begin to tell you how much fun we had. My kids were CAKED in sand, hot, cold (water was freezing), tired, but had the time of their life. They are already asking when we can go back. And you know what, so am I!

This was our daughters first real time to the beach. We took her when she was about 8 months old, but she has no memories of that. Every time we turned around, she was laying on her stomach on the sand. She loved to just wiggle around on the sand. Our son…he spent his day digging a hole that his entire body could fit into up to his waist! I’m sad I didn’t get a picture of it. He dug a pretty large hole!

Here is a link to the exact beach we were at. If you are around this area, you should definitely check it out. It cost $6.00 to get in and that’s it! We brought a picnic lunch (more like a feast lol) and really enjoyed the day.

International Women’s Expo

Yep. You can be jealous, cause that’s where I was today! It was AWESOME! I went with my mother in-law, whom I adore by the way (yep you can be jealous about that too) and my sister in-law. We had a blast. Not only do you get lots of free stuff, but the samples for all the foods were really good to. Especially the dips. I think I tried every single dip one booth had…they had about 13. The best sample was the Oreo Cookie Fudge. O.M.G it was heavenly! Like melt in your mouth, good. Like you won a million dollars, good. OK I’m starting to sound like that yogurt commercial! But I’m serious, that fudge…Mmm Mmm Mmmm! If you have a Sams Club near you and have a membership, they are there for all your major holidays!

The best thing I walked out of there with was a steamer iron. We can say goodbye to the ridiculously high dry cleaning bill each month. This baby steams the body odor smell right out of the clothes. And “if you have a silk shirt, you can leave the iron on all day long and you won’t burn your clothes at all” (please read that with your best Australian accent. It’ll be like you were right there listening to him speak). I wanted this thing last year. In fact, my sister in-law spent all last year searching the internet to find this thing only to find out today, you can’t buy it online. Which, in this day and age when everyone buys everything online, well that’s a foolish business move on his part. But whatcha gonna do?

I totally needed today. I needed to get out of the house. No kids. And just do something for me. Not to mention, I did a little networking for this little blog of mine. Let’s just say, if the pieces fall into the right place, I will be reviewing (with a possible giveaway) one of the COOLEST fat reducing products! So keep your eyes peeled for that!

If you have this expo near you and you are able to secure a babysitter (if you have young children) I totally recommend you go. Go with some friends and have a little fun!
