Blue Man Group Fun for All Ages

I love exposing my kids to all different types of shows and experiences. Recently we went to see Blue Man Group which has always been a crowd pleaser for our family. The first time we took the kids they were only 6 and 8 and they love it. Since then we have gone two more times and always had a blast! This time they brought some friends who were very excited to see the show.
There was a bunch of added shows for School Vacation week making it easy to get in and out of Boston during the week or weekend. The Charles Playhouse has convenient discounted parking at 200 Stuart Street for only $10. They also have Family Four Packs of tickets to save you money.
Blue Man Group is really hard to explain and to be honest I wouldn't want to give away what happens in the show but it is a lot of fun!  It includes comedy, theater, rock concert and a dance party all in one!  This will not be a show to bore the kids.  
Remember that if you are in the front set of rows there are plastic parkas on the seats as something may fly out at you.  We were in the first row without the parkas.  The theater is on the smaller side so every seat is a great seat!
Plus every time we see the show it is continually refreshed with new music, fresh stories, custom instruments and state-of-the-art technology.  It is so amazing that a show with no words spoken is so mesmerizing to adults and kids alike. 
For more information about Blue Man Group, visit or call 1.800.BLUEMAN.  The show has no intermission and runs about an hour and 40 minutes.  
What is it?
Get your blue on and go see the show!

Give them some blue love online:

Giveaway for 4 Tickets to Imagine Van Gogh Boston

I am so excited to be offering my readers another amazing giveaway. This time I have partnered with Imagine Van Gogh, the ORIGINAL immersive exhibition in Image Totale © Boston to giveaway 4 tickets to any date the reader selects. Enter below to win!

This beautiful exhibit features more than 200 of the Dutch artist’s paintings. It is making its debut in Boston on December 21st 2021 and will be here until February 20th. 

It will be at the iconic SoWa Power Station centrally located in the city’s popular SoWa Art + Design District. A true architectural wonder that once housed the world’s largest power generation plant, The SoWa Power Station has recently been renovated into an allseason events space intended to serve as a blank canvas for community, celebration, and innovation. Imagine Van Gogh has sold more than 400,000 tickets across Canada this past year. 

Annabelle Mauger and Julien Baron, renowned for their work at Cath├ędrale d’Images in Les Bauxde-Provence, France, are the Artistic Directors behind the creation of the Imagine Van Gogh. The UNIQUE exhibit brings Van Gogh’s canvases to life in a vivid, spectacular way: the audience will truly enter the artist’s world of dreams; visitors are literally transported on a journey to the heart of the artist’s work. “Original canvasses are expanded and fragmented, then projected into unusual shapes to emphasize the mesmerizing exaggerations and distortions of Van Gogh’s work. Visitors experience their energy, emotion, and beauty like never before.” - Annabelle Mauger. 

With the safety of guests, employees and the community as the highest priority, the GRANDIOSE Imagine Van Gogh will open in December 2021 during a more secured period of the year and will be in accordance with the public health guidelines in Massachusetts. The exhibition is a contactless experience spanning over 24,000 square feet with a limited number of guests that will be allowed in on a timed-entry basis, hand sanitizer will be provided, physical distancing of six feet will be required, and masks will be mandatory upon entering. The exhibition will adhere to all safety guidelines established by the Massachusetts government. Tickets start at $33.99 (plus service charges and fees).

10 Reasons to visit Atlantis Bahamas

We had an absolutely amazing time at Atlantis Bahamas. To say it is Paradise is an understatement. It is so gorgeous, and I want to share my Top 10 reasons to visit. 
Believe me I could come up with 100 but I will limit it to the top 10!
10. Gorgeous views from your room. 
I could just go out on our deck in the morning and enjoy the lovely view.
We were in the Royal Tower at Atlantis and had a wonderful view.
So pretty, I loved this seahorse right next to our room.
Here is a short video:
9. Aquaventure, Atlantis Paradise Island's water park!
It is a one-of-a-kind 141-acre waterscape with complimentary admission for over-night guests at Atlantis. My personal favorite was The Serpent. This slide starts in a dark tube but ends in a float through sharks and other fish.
I love that you float through slowly so you can enjoy the views.
Here is some video on that slide.
Evan also did the Leap of Faith that drops you in to the tube that you speed through with sharks.
Here you can see the sharks swimming around.
Evan also did the Abyss that drops you in to this cool area.
The Challenger slide is a big hit too as you can race each other, and it shows your time on a display.
We also loved the River Rapids. It is so fun floating along in it.
I love the little rapids sections that moves you along.
8. The island drinks and snacks by the pool and beach.
One of the first things I did was order a Bahama Mama. When in the Bahamas you have to!
Plus, they had Dole Whip! My favorite! This turned in to a daily snack.
Here is a Pina colada with blue curacao.
Another view of a dole whip.
This was called a Miami Vice - Pina colada and strawberry daiquiri.
This drink was crazy! It was a frozen hot chocolate with tons of fun snacks on it!
This was non-alcoholic and from Chocotini and it was right next to the Royal pool.
They do have a cover charge and proof of age must be shown.
There is even a place for tweens and teens to hang out at night. There were times set aside for tweens and then my kids entered at the teens time which was 9:30 pm-12:30 am.
There are pool tables 
Gaming systems.
Snacks and drinks that they can use their room key to pay for.
There is dancing too. My kids stayed till after mid-night which was cool. They really enjoyed it.
Definitely a great place for the kids to check out while the parents head to a bar or the casino.
6. Instagrammable Picture Spots
If you know today's teens the perfect spot for pictures is key. We found some gorgeous spots to do some photo shoots. Lauren had the perfect dress for this background.
Even Evan wanted his picture taken. Usually, I have to fight to get him to take a picture.
We loved the swing too.
So pretty.
The beach is always a gorgeous background.
Another pretty spot.
You have to take a picture in the cool chair. This is a little past the lobby on your way to Marina Village.
This is in the lobby.
I mean how can you go wrong with a place like this.
Here is a little overview video too:
5. Marine life everywhere you look. 
This is The Dig which is on the lower level of the lobby.
It is deceivingly big with lots of fish and cool stuff to see.
So cool.
Plus, there are cool turtles. We could even see them from our room.
There are tanks everywhere you look.
This stingray was huge.
Love the sharks.
4. Marina Village 
It has tons of little shops and restaurants. The Marina area was a short walk from the Royal and a super cute area.
There is a gorgeous view of the resort.
Plus, amazing boats are there. Lauren also found some cute bracelets and rings at the little shops. Evan bought a cool carved crab.
3. Great Restaurants! 
We especially liked SeaFire Steakhouse which is in Marina Village.
The drinks were really yummy.
Here is my filet mignon with blue cheese on it. It was so good and cooked perfectly.
We also got some sides including this sweet potato side.
Here was a deconstructed cheesecake we got for dessert.
2. Gorgeous Beaches for miles
The water was so clear and beautiful.
We loved the Cove beach which was lovely with very little waves.
This is the Cove building.
I was obsessed with the palm trees. I especially loved this one.
So pretty.
So gorgeous. The water was beautiful. There were also people walking up and down the beach to take drink orders.
2. Pools and relaxation everywhere you look
We loved going to all the pools. We could go to the beach then hop in the pool.
I liked waking up early and heading down to the pool. Here you can see how serene it is with no one in sight.
The Royal tower pool.
My pictures can't even do this resort justice. It is truly amazing, and you won't be disappointed.
Disclosure: We were provided with an upgraded room, transfers to and from the airport, dinner at the SeaFire Steakhouse and cover charge for the Crush teen club by Atlantis Bahamas. No other compensation was provided and all opinions are my own.
