Everglades Holiday Park Limited Time Coupon Offer #usfg

*This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my Disclosure Page for details.


We are really excited to be heading to Florida soon for our family vacation. We have some fun things lined up one of which is Everglades Holiday Park in Fort Lauderdale, FL. As you know we are a nature loving family so it should be no surprise that we would choose an airboat tour though the swamp as one of our activities. Everglade Holiday Park is home to the Gator Boys Alligator Rescue. The park has been in operation for nearly 3 decades and promises visitors a one of a kind, unforgettable experience. Be sure to follow us on Instagram to see photos from our Florida adventure.


At Everglades Holiday Park your family will glide across the River of Grass in a state-of-the-art airboat before taking in an alligator presentation performed by the Gator Boys from Animal Planet's hit TV series, where you'll learn all about the American alligator. Included with the adventure is 1 free group photo to remember your fun-filled day. Everglades Holiday Park has endless options for continued fun, including animal encounters, fishing, bike trails and more!

After our visit to the park we plan to hit up Everglades National Park so we can get in another National Park visit this year as we celebrate the centennial anniversary of the National Parks System.

Don't worry after our visit I will be sure to do a follow up post reviewing our experience. In the meantime check out the reviews on Trip Advisor.

Introducing Weird But True Graphic Tees From Crazy 8 + A Giveaway #Crazy8Kid #NatGeoInsider

*This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my Disclosure Page for details. I am a National Geographic Kids Insider and have received the following products for review purposes. All opinions are honest and our own.


A few weeks ago we received a package from our friends over at National Geographic. Inside were 2 fun, unique "Weird But True" graphic tees from Crazy 8. Crazy 8 is the newest addition to The Gymboree Corporation family of brands. They offer fashionable outfits at a great price for girls and boys sizes Newborn to 14. They currently have 300 stores as well as their online store. I must admit this was the first time I heard about Crazy 8 and after browsing their website I think I might have a new favorite store for children's clothing.

One of our family's favorite clothing items are graphic tees! So when we found out that National Geographic partnered with Crazy 8 to create a new line of "Weird But True," graphic tees we were really excited. The 'Weird But True" books are one of my kids favorites! The kids had a hard time choosing which one they wanted to review and honestly I was a little disappointed that they didn't come in a size large enough for me (though I might just have to give the boys 14 a try). After much debate and careful consideration they went with the Porcupine and Shark tees (shhh don't tell them I will be buying the rest for them). There are currently 8 different tees to choose from....and we are really hoping the add more to the line! Each one teaches a "Weird But True" fascinating fact. So not only can your kids be fashionable, but they can also learn and teach others some interesting fun facts about animals, space and human anatomy.


  • A baby porcupine is called a porcupette.
  • Girls have more taste buds than boys.
  • Butterflies taste food with their feet.
  • Astronauts can’t whistle on the moon.
  • Spiders have clear blood.
  • Sharks have eight senses. Humans only have five.
  • No one knows what color dinosaurs were.
  • Gorillas burp when they are happy

    The tees fit true to size even after washing...and we have washed them a lot since receiving them. So far the graphics are holding up nicely and have not showed any signs of cracking, like some iron on graphics tend to do. One of my daughter's first observations about the tees was that they are very soft and comfortable. These bold tees are the perfect summer gear for you energetic kids.

    Visit your local Crazy 8 store to pick up these fun shirts and get a FREE mini “Weird But True” book with every shirt purchase. While supplies last.

    What is your favorite “Weird But True” shirt?

    Best of Signs Banner Review

    *This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my Disclosure Page for details.


    I was invited to speak at my first homeschool convention this year. As you can imagine I was excited, scared and well unprepared.  Thankfully Best of Signs contacted me about reviewing one of their high quality banners relieving me of one of my "to do list" items.

    Ordering a sign was simple and quick. I choose to go with a vinyl, full color sign with clear acrylic grommets. Since I wanted to be able to hang my sign in a variety of places, including in front of a banquet table, I went with a 5 ft x 2 1/2 ft size. Banners start at just $9.00 (2 x 2 size). Best of Signs guarantee that their sign prices are the cheapest (btw, if you find a cheaper banners, they will meet that price and slash another 10% off your order.). You can create a banner by uploading your own graphic, which is what I did, utilizing the Best of Signs design tools, choosing one of the many available templates or even letting Best of Signs design it for you.

    The banner was printed and shipped quickly and I was very happy with the quality. The print quality of the graphic, which my husband designed, was amazing. It was crisp and the colors were spot on! My husband and I were pleasantly surprised that even the texture he added to the graphic showed up on the sign. The sign has a total of 6 grommets (3 on top and 3 on the bottom) making it easy to hang.

    So far I have used the banner at two functions and have received so many compliments on it.  All Best of Signs products come with a 180 day guarantee.

    So if you are looking for a banner, window sign, decal/sticker or vinyl lettering for your next function give Best of Signs a try!

    Vote For Nature Travel

    *This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my Disclosure Page for details.

    Disclosure Vote for Travel


    For the third year in a row I am participating in the World Traveling blog series. This years theme was, "vote for." It didn't take me long to come up with the perfect topic for my post. It is something our family is very passionate about and something we make a point of exploring just about every week...nature! Nature is all around us so it is one of the easiest and most inexpensive things to explore when you are traveling either in your home state or to another state.

    One of my many passions is exposing adults and children to nature. All around us we are surrounded by nature which makes it one of the most effortless travel experiences. Yet so many families don't take advantage of the natural world and all it has to offer our children. Over the last decade there has been a great disconnect between children and the natural world and it is up to us to make a change today. So I, "Vote for Nature Travel."
