Another year of fun and we can’t believe that it’s already over! Twinsfest that is!
V & K truly enjoyed their time at twins fest this year; so much so they wished it would never end. We packed up our whole family including grandma for this adventure… through rain, across the mountains to Twinsburg, Ohio, where we rekindled with friends from as far as Australia to our home town of NY.
“TwinDollicious summer camp here we come” made it to our warehouse just in time to share the new story with all of our friends. They have been waiting for this sibling loved series and the next chapter of V & K’s adventures; and we were ecstatic to Share!
There are always amazing and interesting people attending the fest and this year Siamese twin brothers aged 65 attended for the first time. Though the brothers live pretty close by it was their first year attending.. They were happy to be there and happily took photos with other sets of multiples. Brothers Ronnie and Donnie are in the Guinness book of world record as of two years ago. They worked in the circus up until 1991 when schools would not allow them to attend. I’m pretty sure that all of the twins welcomed them to their happy place and made them feel at home so much so that they will make this an annual tradition for themselves as well.
Our little mascot enjoyed every bit of his first year at Twinsfest as well. He found a comfortable seat in the game day walk about while numerous chauffeurs towed him around and enjoyed their own test runs during the annual parade.
This year marks the first bbnyc Blogger bash NYC for Bash! It was quite different having a singleton on arm to mingle, meet new brands and learn all about the fun new products happening at sweet suite 17 but at the same time he was the perfect little personality to have accompany me.
We visited Zulily’s photo shoot booth; which included bubbles and fun photographers. http://www.zulily.com/ I love how they were able to be apart of suite sweet for everyone.
Now….. throughout this huge area at the piers we scope out some of our favorite things that I’d like to share.
1. ✨Simplay3 the brand that started tikes; ride alongs , durable amazing products have now started the next stage of baby gear. We are in love with everything featured at BBNYC (especially the helmet ride along) and know that there are more things to come. ✨ http://www.simplay3.com/
2. We had to visit V & K’s favorite snack pops booth http://www.yumearth.com/ we know that all sugar can be created equal but yum earths pops get a pass especially when they’re incorporating other nutritious snacks for your kiddies.
3. http://www.bixbee.com/ Was listed as one of the top choices to visit for bags and lunch boxes. I was so happy that we were able to visit them and learn more about their mission. Backpacks that embrace the imagination and give back.
4. http://www.kangaroomfg.com/ Was loaded with fun reps in butterfly floaters and emoji madness! We loved them so much we had to share with an unboxing clip.
5. Saving the best for last because as a mom of 3 you never know when you’re going to have to make your own anything or mend something quickly. This is where the 3doodler comes in. Three D Perfection!
We will be sharing more fun things that sweet suite had to offer! So much 2 share
Slow down summer! Though it has been 3 plus weeks since school ended, just the thought of packing away our summer styles and prepping for the cold scares the hee bee gee bees out of me.
We’ve been taking it as slow as we can between summer camp and our weekend getaways we are soaking up all of the sun we can to fulfill our vitamin D needs.
With 3 kids in tow we planned to visit some historical sites within driving distance. An 8-10 hour drive may sound like much but we’ve survived 16; now that’s serious. We chose Saratoga/Lake George as our first weekend getaway. We usually visit Martha’sVineyard but decided to go with a group of our family members and learn about upstate NY. The kids couldn’t get enough of the horses at Bennington Farms, Martha’s Creme for ice cream, Congress park’s Carousel, of course the lake and did I mention the ice cream 🍦.
As if that adventure wasnt enough we were brave enough to do it again….and many more times to come of course. But, traveling down south to VA to visit family was both nostalgic and educational once again.
We stopped at chincoteague beach where the wild horses run and the famous story of misty originated. The kiddies enjoyed one beautiful horse after another with an added touch of beach of course. We enjoyed our stay at a quaint Refuge Inn…. super kid friendly; just what we like!
After a busy holiday season of Christmas, family holidays, birthdays a much needed vacation to end of the year right was on the agenda…. Highly Recommend!!
If a list of must do’s to prepare for a fresh new year was in demand,the topper of the list would be o clear your agenda book and plan a vacation or getaway.
This year our family and team took a fun getaway cruise to warmer climates, fresh air with light luggage and clear minds. Decembers events and agendas were all clear and must do’s were placed into starting fresh for 2016 while the important things were tackled and complete just before heading out the door. Children in tow as ALWAYs ( in my opinion they make the vacay even more memorable). Must do’s are always going to be there…..it can wait!
We spent days in the Caribbean and celebrating 2016 with lots of Birthday cakes and singing to V&K as usual.
Hope everyone’s having a great start to this sweet 16!
Remember to think positive while living with love, inspiration and motivation :):)
Have you ever heard the saying Try it you may like it? Well we did, and in this case it’s the experience, people and fun tht we LOVE!
Team TwinDollicious and V & K ventured off to another runway show / pageant in Wippany N J; organized by the company East Coast Starz. The owners : Stacie Fitz and Lauren are definitely creating stars when working with the models, moms and sponsors of the shows.
Take 9 was the name of this event and it included tons of sponsors, designers, models as young as 3 years old, judges , casting directors, talents, singers, dancers and management companies.
It was great to meet all of the team members / models that walked our line. The excitement of meeting customers, whom become friends are the best hands on experiences ever. We are built to create confidence through, fun and fashion and with all of our new Dolly friends we’re one step ahead in the right direction.
Enjoy the smiles on their faces :):)
The Doll Face Team- represent Munich Germany
We were so excited to attend the girls first interactive theatre event. Yes, Disney world and Sesame place include their audience in standing and dancing during the shows but nothing compared to “Can Do Duck the musical” in the Redgrave theatre on Bleeker Street, NYC. The musical is being held in Redgrave which offers one show at a time, this allowed for the children to enter the building and gain a full experience of the lobby filled with Can Do goodies and embellishments. Once seated the show immediately began with interaction from the actors which held the children captive to what would happen next.
The story of Can Do Duck, describes all sorts of capabilities that you can achieve and is creatively incorporated with great musical numbers that the girls have singing or humming for days now …”Make a plan”.
Throughout the show the actors selected children to be a part of scenes. But the best part was the ending when all children were invited up to the stage to interactive with the actors and props. V & K pretending to swim in the pond like a duck and fly in the sky through the clouds with sparkled tutu skirts and all. This must musical will be running Weekend mornings until March 2014.
