The Luvdbaby towel is a newborn to toddler bath is a luxurious addition for you and your baby's precious bath times.
Lovingly designed with 100% organic cotton muslin that is not dyed. Cotton grows naturally in this brownish color so no harmful chemicals need to be used.
Their 'Cotton Range' was conceived to protect your child with no harmful chemicals often used to dye baby fabric products. As a small family business, they didn't want to sell a child's product that they wouldn't be happy to put near our own children's skin.
The towel is a perfect size for a new born to infant stage (34 inch x 34 inch).
It's incredibly versatile. It also doubles as an adorable bathrobe or a swaddle.
The neutral undyed colour also mean you can buy in advance of the special day as it's great for boys and girls. Make it part of your maternity hospital kit or buy it for someone special as a baby shower gift.
The little ears on the hood are a cute addition that will make you smile. The towel also comes in a cotton bag that means it can be stored and put away for next time.

We love to do letters to Santa in our house each year. But what is even more special is letters FROM Santa! Do you want your child's face to light up in amazement when they get a personalized letter from Santa Claus? Of course you do! The experience and memories of an authentic Santa Letter can last a lifetime, for both the children and the parents.
Some of my fondest childhood memories of Santa Claus are extremely vivid and bring me happiness and joy to this day. Did you know that believing in Santa actually helps boost children's mental development and social skills? It's true. According to psychiatrist Lynda Breen, "The festive ritual of exchanging presents associated with Santa helps develop a child's sense of charitable giving as well as their consideration of others less fortunate than themselves."
I have an opportunity for you to tap into the Christmas magic that memories are made of, by creating a personal connection between your child and Santa!
PackageFromSanta.com offers you a choice of 3 unique treasure chests of authentic, Santa Claus goodies and letters from Santa sent right to your child, directly from the North Pole! It’s a bundle of proof with YOUR CHILD’S NAME ON IT! Every Package is painstakingly crafted, packed and shipped with care and even includes a real Santa return address and genuine North Pole Stamp!

Road Trip to Lancaster Pennsylvania
Last weekend my family and I packed the mini van up and head on a three day trip to Pennsylvania. We left the house on Saturday at 6am and returned on Monday at around 4pm. On our trip we went to The Crayola Experience, Iron Hill Brewery, Dutch Wonderland, Commonwealth on Queen, a Wedding at The Farm at Eagles Ridge and were suppose to go to Sesame Place but ran out of energy. The two nights we spent at an airbnb in Lancaster, PA.
Crayola Experience Easton, PA
I was provide 4 complimentary tickets to an unbiased review. We arrive at The Crayola Experience at around 11am on Saturday. There is a parking lot close by on Pine St (I think is the name of the street) for $5. The line to get/pick up tickets was short (3+ tickets are Regular Price-$19.99 Online Price-$16.99) but in the future I would get there right at 10am when they open. The first floor is the admissions, gift shop, cafe and the world’s largest crayon. So we started on the second floor and skipped the film on how crayons are made (we have seen the Mr. Rogers video). Included with each person's admission is a plastic page to put your creations in and two tokens. The tokens can be used to design your own crayon label (you choose name and symbol plus the color name and date is included on the label) there are five different machines each with a different crayon color the tokens can also be used to get model magic to be used in at Modeling Madness were sculpture suggestions to make can be found (more tokens can be purchased for $.50 a piece). My three and five year olds loved making the crayon labels and would have done more if we had bought them more tokens. Also found on the second color are crayon coloring stations, a photo booth to make a coloring sheet with a picture of you on it, stations to project and make your art work dance, and additional fee craft area to make premuim crafts which we skipped (also a toddler indoor playground). The big kid playground is on the third floor which is where we headed next.
The indoor playground has chalk to be used on the ground and dry erase markers to color on white animal sculptures. The climbing structure itself is relatively small but my kids enjoyed it and it was a great way to burn off some energy before the rest of the drive. Around the structure are different stations at one you can create your own puzzle and cut it in the puzzle machine, another make your own superhero mask and belt as well as painting station. I really enjoyed using brand new “juicy” markers to create my own puzzle. Also on the third floor is a huge water table that you can use waves to move a boat down (we skipped it because there was a line) and a doodle in the dark room.
The fourth floor is all about melting crayons and was the biggest hit. There are three activities painting with melted crayon which was fun and easy, spin art with melted crayon which we waited in a short line for and my kids favorite making new crayon shapes by melting crayons. There was a long line to do Melt and Mold crayons you got to choose one crayon color and whether you wanted to make a ring, a dinosaur or an animated crayon. When it our turn we insert the crayon into the machine and watch the crayon melt and drip into the mold then cool the whole process takes 4 minutes. If you want to make another one you have to get back in line. Next time I would start on the fourth floor before it got busy so the kids could mold lots of crayons and then work our way down.
I would definitely visit The Crayola Experience again and allow more than three hours for the visit!
Dutch Wonderland Lancaster, PA
I was given four tickets to Dutch Wonderland in exchanged for an unbiased review. Tickets are $40.99 but if you would like to save use this link https://www.dutchwonderland.com/Blogger16?promocode=CapeCodMomsBlog16
or promo code CapeCodMomsBlog16
On Sunday morning a little before 10 am we arrived at Dutch Wonderland. As we pulled in I saw a huge parking lot and was not prepared to pay for parking but it turned out it was $5 for regular parking and $15 for premier (you get to park closer) so I paid $5 to park. As you enter through the castle they check your bags and you go by the gift shop (no outside food is allowed). We started by riding the Sky Ride to the opposite side of the park which was a nice way to start. There we rode the Double Splash Flume, Gondola Cruise, Dukes Dozers, and walked around Exploration Island where there are 20 life like dinosaurs (and no mosquitoes). Then we caught the end of story time with Princess Brooke and watch the divers practice at the Aqua Stadium. By this point it was more than 90 degrees and the kids were starting to wilt so each of the kids picked one more ride and we skipped Duke’s Lagoon to avoid a meltdown. We enjoyed the Merry-Go-Round even though it is much smaller than the one at Heritage Gardens and Dragon’s Lair so my son could “drive” a boat. Everyone except my daughter’s favorite ride was Double Splash Flume she thought it was scary. Dutch Wonderland is small making it a great park for young kids. If I was to visit again I would go on a cooler day.
Looking for Places to Eat:
Iron Hill Brewery is kid friendly and has a great well priced kids menu with lots of good options; both my kids had burgers, fries and Ben and Jerry’s ice cream. I enjoyed a cheeseburger but the sweet potato fries were soggy so go for the regular fries (the few I snuck from the kids plates were good). Other people in the party said the pizza, red quinoa salad and the Triple Chocolate Hill were yummy.
Commonwealth on Queen is good for both breakfast and lunch. They have a simple menu which includes vegan options. My son enjoyed the homemade belgian waffles and my daughter and I thought the vegan lemon olive oil dough nut was amazing.

Liquid Planet Water Park And Zip Lines Unveils New Speed Slides And Many More New Attractions Entering 7th Season. Located in Candia, N.H.Liquid Planet Water Park And Zip Lines is New Hampshire's Home Town Water Park perfect for young families.
$5 Off Liquid Planet Water Park and Zip Lines
Advertised as 'gravity defying and only for the brave and fearless at heart, The Shooting Stars, two 40 foot vertical dropping speed slides will be celebrated and officially open following the cutting of a ribbon on Saturday, June 21st. It's been a long time in the creating, but on opening day for Liquid Planet Water Park And Zip Lines in Candia, N.H. customers will be told to 'cross their arms, make a wish' and shoot the 40 foot vertical drop along 131 linear feet and fall into a smooth landing of cool water.
The 'Shooting Stars' were slated to open last season, but a southern hurricane damaged the manufacturing facility and to the disappointment of Liquid Planet and their customers the slides sat mostly erect, but not usable. "The delay makes the opening of the slides that much more exciting and we are thrilled to kick off our seventh season with a ribbon cutting celebration to officially open them." Said Kevin Dumont, President of Liquid Planet Water Park L.L.C. "The Shooting Stars are the real deal when it comes to thrilling water park attractions. They are steep, fast and a real adrenalin rush." Dumont said.
The Shooting Stars certainly look official. They are decorated with racing stripes and checkered flags line the slide course. "These new slides will allow our guests to have a lot of fun racing against each other and we hope to incorporate races and competitions." Said Kelly Dumont, General Manager of Liquid Planet Water Park L.L.C. "They also bring the element for older kids to get more from the park experience." She said.
Entering its seventh season, Liquid Planet Water Park And Zip Lines will introduce several new features and attractions to the park including a new dock and slide set up and expanded beach at 'Crater Lake,' 'Fantasy Falls,' a cascading waterfall down the granite cliff, a newly built 'Cosmic Camp,' summer camp, expanded concrete areas, roofed shade areas, a remodeled zip line gear up station, a revamped miniature golf course and many aesthetic touches ranging from landscaping to paint.
"We have brought new features and attractions every year since we opened in June of 2008." Says Kevin Dumont. "We listen closely to all of the feedback from our guests and work hard to incorporate the changes and improvements noted as creating a better park experience." He said. "The opening of The Shooting Stars and multiple other items we are introducing this season are the goals we set to be in place for our guests this year. We are thrilled and excited to open." "It is our ambition to be New Hampshire's hometown water park and we're on our way." He said.
Recently a friend of mine told me about a great new company in Newton, MA called Crudité Creations, owned by Lauren Brooks, who cares about community and children's health! We were offered a chance to try out one of their tasty creations which was delivered by David promptly on Father's Day morning! I was thrilled to meet him and told him how great of an idea I thought this was! Plus the fact they will deliver to Cape Cod makes this particular mom an even bigger fan!
The Tiny One and I were excited to try our very own Vegetable Bouquet! As soon as I unwrapped everything I was astounded at the attention to detail and creativity that had gone into creating such a beautiful arrangement. Crudite Creations are vegetables arranged in an artful way and they are perfect for events and celebrations. BUT they are also a fun way to get kids and picky eaters to eat more healthy veggies especially since they are cut and arranged in such a visually appealing manner.
The Tiny One and I went right to work on the olives, radishes, zucchini and squash, dipping them into an extremely delectable white bean dip. We sampled a little bit of everything and the Tiny One was very excited by the "itty bitty baby corns". We shared with family and friends and enjoyed them for snacks, lunch and even cooked up a bunch of them to enjoy with our dinner one night!
With the Tiny One now in preschool, I loved having some of the leftover squash and zucchini pieces to share in his lunch or even for our picnic dinners. Apparently cutting them into shapes makes eating veggies more fun to kids, which means I am going to need a veggie cutting class with Lauren Brooks stat!
The company also sources all their ingredients from local suppliers and when available local farm stands!
The Tiny One and I were so pleased with our arrangement from Crudité Creations that he gave it the Tiny Thumbs Up! I urge you to give this brand new company a chance and try ordering one of your own for your self or for a friend or your next event! Try it out ASAP and save 15%!
Reasons Crudité Creations is AWESOME!
Crudité Creations is offering a special 15% off their vegetable bouquets to the Cape Cod area community for this week only. Orders need to be placed by Friday 6/27 at 1pm and delivery will take place on Saturday 6/28.
Crudité Creations (www.cruditecreations.com) was recently featured on WCVB’s Chronicle show as part of their “what’s new” segment, and is receiving widespread acclaim for their beautiful and healthy vegetable bouquets.

Are you tired of your children begging for junky foods? Does processed packaged food seem to find a way back into your kitchen? Are you feeling like you need to do a diet clean up? Now is a great time to clean things up a bit. That's why I am participating this new online program called, The Family Spring Cleanse. I am super excited about this program because I have not seen anything like this before. Most cleanse diets are created with an individual person in mind but this program was created with the FAMILY in mind. It is safe for everyone to participate, has delicious kid-friendly recipes, and has a simple step by step get started guide. Let's face it, we're Moms, and we don't have time to make separate food for everyone. That's why this program is perfect for busy Moms and their families. All recipes have been kid-tested so you don't have to worry about trying to negotiate with your children to eat "weird" food.
Imagine your family happily eating nutritious whole foods and feeling satisfied with their new choices.
Here's What People are Saying About Past Programs from The Holistic Mama
Getting Your Family On Board:
"I've been dabbling with real foods for a few months now, but your challenge has given me more focus. I could eat this way with no problems whatsoever; I was raised mainly on a real food diet. However, the rest of my family...not so much. I really wanted to show my daughter that there are many yummy options other than junk. Thanks for your daily guidance!" - Lisa Belles
Trying New Things:
I believe that this challenge has led me on a road to more discoveries. I plan to purchase only real foods from now on, at least the majority of the time. I will incorporate some items I already have in the cupboards (that are not real) until they are used up. A couple of new purchases that I have never tried before were coconut oil, chia seed and brown rice flour. There are so many new choices out there and I plan on continuing to try new items to see what I like and what I don't. - Jodi Cooney

We want to share a really awesome new Mom Shopping site that was recently recommended to us. Moms Flourish is a new website where you can shop Mom invented products. We became aware of this great group from a fellow Saline Ambassador aka Boogie Wipes (we are Boogie Wipes Ambassadors and love to share their stuff with our fans!)
The group was founded by a fellow Mom named Shelley. She had the great idea to take all these amazing Mom made products out there that we all support and love and get them onto one spot to help get these products out to more people.
These women had terrific ideas and worked hard to develop their products exactly how they knew they should be made. They cared about their products because they had originally created them for their own use and wanted to share the solutions with other moms. But, getting on a retail shelf is not easy - or cheap. They needed a way to get their solutions to other moms & Shelley helped create the environment to do so.
We have checked out the website which is constantly adding new inventory and have decided to share a few of our favorite things! There are some really amazing useful products on this site so make sure you check them all out!
The water extender immediately caught our eye. A simple device that sends the water out further for the Tiny Little Hands trying to get clean! This immediately went into our shopping cart so we would no longer have to worry about the Tiny One balancing on the edge of the sink! Score!
The cute little booboo mittens were a neat idea for kids when they get hurt. We really like the kissy lips on them ;) The place mat chalkboard also caught our eye! You would not understand (well maybe you might) the amount of times we have had meltdowns during meal time when we are out and about. This easy to transport chalkboard helps make the wait for your food tremendously easier! We have actually seen this product before and own one made by a military mom and we adore it! This stays in our car all the time and gets used frequently!
There are tons of other fun and unique and inventive ideas on Moms Flourish, please stop on by and take a peek and let us know what you think!
To celebrate Moms in Business, Moms Flourish has given us a very special discount code for our fans and readers. Simply use the code to the right and you can save 10% on all your orders. This would be the perfect time to get a last minute gift for Mother's Day (you all know which one I want right?), a shower gift, birthday present or even just something you could use around the house.
Help other Moms Flourish and Enjoy your shopping and savings while you do so!
