Cars 3 Board Games from Spin Master!

How often do our kids ask us to play a game but we parents dont want to because:

  1. It's too long
  2. It's too boring
  3. Or, It's too much to set up.

Princess A and myself were excited to test out Spin Master's Cars 3 Risky Raceway! I secretly set up the game before I called her to play with me. It only took a matter of minutes to assemble the 3D elements to the game and to pop out the die-cut tokens. And so we began...

But first let me tell you that we are competitive in this family...REALLY COMPETITIVE. My first date with King J was a basketball game one on one. Our kids have taken this characteristic on as well.

She chose Jackson Storm and I was Cruz Ramirez. We spun the wheel and moved our cars across the board, cheering as we got a high number and pouting when it low. Princess A loved it when she would pass me. There may have been a short-lived dance.

We talked about all kinds of stuff as we played, oblivious of the time, the television or my cell phone. It was a nice break to be unplugged and happy about it.

Remember when I said her dance was short-lived?! Well, guess who won the Piston Cup and the Risky Raceway game. This girl right here! The big girl, I mean woman, mom, yeah.

And now King J is home from traveling so we have our third player. I imagine it will be even more fun.

We Watched the #GirlsTrip Movie!

On Friday me and My Girls went to see the new movie, Girls Trip. It stars Regina Hall, Jada Pinkett Smith, Queen Latifah and Tiffany Haddish!!! And who could forget the one and only Larenz Tate (and yes, he's still got it!)

We LOVED the movie and were each treated to this beauty served on a platter as we excited the theater.

Zimbabwean Sculptures in Dallas


Dallas is about 3 hours away from us. We decided to take a trip and do some of the touristy attractions, with one being the Dallas Arboretum. They have a special art showing of Zimbabwean sculptures and they are breathtaking! Here's some of my favorites.
