Join the Home Depot Garden Club for Coupons

I didn't plant a whole lot, but I've got several tomato plants, a row of green bean plants, some broccoli, and lots of basil (pesto anyone?!). I just signed up with the Home Depot Garden Club to receive valuable coupons, savings, and gardening advice.

Barney: I Can Do It DVD Review & Giveaway

My kids and I recently reviewed the new Barney release, I Can Do It, a celebration of growing bigger!  HiT Entertainment and Lionsgate bring us everyone's favorite purple T-rex and all his friends as they learn important preschool milestones in this fun DVD.  My kids enjoyed the interactive songs, Barney's version of the story of Pandora's Box, and learning about growing, tying shoes, and the importance of brushing teeth.  The kids and I both love it when a DVD can be upbeat fun and educational! 

The back cover description reads:  Are you ready for big-kid fun?  Join BJ, Claire, and Jade as Barney teaches them that even if you're not big enough to do all the things your friends are doing, there are new friends to meet and new games to play right now.  Discover that big-sized fun is waiting for you every morning, and every day you grow is loaded with Tee-riffic adventures!

Barney: I Can Do It includes these bonus features:

BJ's Batting Cage Counting Game
Peek-a-Boo Game

Barney: I Can Do It runs for approximately 58 minutes, is targeted to children ages 1 through 5, and retails for $14.98


One My Evansville Mommy reader will win a copy of Barney: I Can Do It!  This giveaway will end on Friday, July 8 at 11:59 PM Central time.

Indiana Basketball Cookies Recipe + Vote for My Evansville Mommy

What comes to mind when you think of the state of Indiana?   For some, the answer is basketball so that is what I chose to enter as my cookie representing Indiana in the Better Homes & Gardens State Cookie Contest.  Starting at 8am Central time, you can visit the Better Homes & Gardens Facebook page and vote for my entry!  If I win, I will be able to give away a BHG Bakeware Set to a My Evansville Mommy reader.  You can vote once per day, so please cast some votes for me! 

I decided to make a pumpkin flavored cookie since I wanted an orange color.  I enhanced the color with drops of red and yellow food coloring - however once the cookies were baked the color was paler than I had hoped.  Next time I'll use even more!

The Better Homes & Gardens 10x15 non-stick cookie sheet was great to work with!  The cookie recipe called for parchment paper on the cookie sheet, but I wanted to test out the non-stick finish so I opted to skip the parchment paper.  The result?  The cookies slid of the sheet like a dream and were perfectly baked! 

The cookies were decorated with a small tube of black decorator gel.  This was a super simple method but honestly not very cost-effective as I barely was able to decorate five cookies with one tube.  So for an entire batch, using some melted dark chocolate in a ziploc back with the corner snipped would probably work just as well (and be even tastier).

Pumpkin Basketball Cookies

2 cups flour (I used half whole wheat and half unbleached)
1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoons ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 1/4 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup pure pumpkin
Red and yellow food coloring

In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and salt.  Meanwhile, beat eggs and brown sugar until smooth and fluffy (about 2 minutes).  Beat in the oil, vanilla, and pumpkin.  Add food coloring (if desired).   Add the flour mixture and mix just until incorporated.

Drop by rounded half-tablespoonfuls on a non-stick baking sheet (or baking sheet lined with parchment paper).  Bake at 325 degrees for 12-14 minutes or toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.  Yields about 30 cookies.

Recipe adapted from Joy of Baking.

Disclosure: I received a complimentary Better Homes & Gardens baking sheet to use for my entry in this contest.  No other compensation was received and all view expressed are my honest opinions uninfluenced by the product received.

Columbus Roar and Explore Adventure Getaway Package Review

A few weeks ago, I wrote about the Roar and Explore Adventure Getaway package and have since had the opportunity to visit Columbus to experience this fun getaway!  The trip went very smoothly, especially when you consider the fact that we traveled with two children ages 3 and under!  The kids seemed content to read library books and play with small toys for the drive up (which was around 5 hours).  We drove up on a Friday morning and arrived in Columbus at the Center of Science and Industry (COSI) about noon, hit the Zoombezi Bay Water Park on Saturday, and visited the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium on Sunday before driving home on Sunday night.

We stayed at the Drury Inn & Suites in Dublin (northwest Columbus); this was our first time staying in a Drury and we were quite impressed with the staff, accommodations, and the extras.  Our room included a mini fridge, free wifi internet, and cable television (nice to occupy the kids).  The free hot breakfast featured a fantastic variety including scrambled eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, muffins, bagels, toast, doughnuts, fruit, and make-your-own waffles.  Peter enjoyed pouring batter into a waffle iron and cooking up his very own waffle:

Overall, I would say that the Drury Inn is the biggest selling point for buying this package - you might be able to spend less than the package by getting a low-budget motel but then you'd have more food expenses and be staying in a place that isn't nearly as nice.  

We visited COSI on our first day and explored the new dinosaur exhibit as well as several other exhibits and watched the 3-D "Waking the T-Rex" movie.  COSI allows packed lunches so we were able to bring a cooler in and eat in the group lunch room (a cafeteria is also available).

The "Waking the T-Rex" movie was fascinating but ultimately a little too intense for my tender-hearted Peter.  He was so distraught to see the T-rex eating other dinosaurs that we had to leave the theater without finishing the movie.  I really wish I had been able watch the whole thing because it was quite interesting and the 3-D was great!

The Little Kidspace was our favorite exhibit since it was specially geared toward toddlers and preschoolers.  Wow, I think the kids could have spent all day in there! There were a ton of different things to do.  They started off playing on the indoor playground, and them moved on to balls suspended by air (Liberty was so fascinated by these) and excavating "fossils" in sand.

Then they played in the "Splish Splash" water table area and thoroughly drenched themselves, but at least they didn't get into trouble for it like they do at home when they play in the sink!    Finally, we headed over to a pretend play area.  Okay, I may be an adult but I've got to say, this part was awesome!  I always loved pretend play as a child, and still do.

There was a pretend kitchen, pretend doctor's office, pretend ambulance, and more, plus tons of cute aprons for the kids to wear to help play the part!   Finally we had to tear them away to visit the DINOSAURS exhibit.

The Dinosaurs exhibit was our second favorite area.  There were several different animatronic dinosaur displays which were amazing.  We went through an interactive dinosaur maze and got to build dinosaurs with Create-a-Dino magnets.

We also played the "Be a Dinosaur" game and learned how to hunt, eat, and live like a dinosaur.  I wasn't very good at though because my dinosaur couldn't find water and died of dehydration.  Oh well!

We spent a total of nearly 5 hours at COSI even though their website recommends 2 hours for children in the 3-5 age range.  They were just having so much fun that they wanted to stay!  I imagine that older children would appreciate COSI even more, so it's a great place for kids of all ages. 

Our second day was spent at the Zoombezi Bay Water Park and was a total blast!  My kids love the water, so they had fun spending the day in the Wild Tides wave pool, Roaring Rapids tube river, Katoomba Lagoon toddler play area, and Barracuda Bay interactive slide area. I didn't take many pictures because I get nervous having the camera near the water, but here a few cute ones of the kids having a spectacular time splashing around:

The Barracuda Bay area had some really nice water slides that kids of any age could go down accompanied by an adult.  The slides were big enough to be enjoyable for an adult, so that was a lot of fun, and of course the kids thought it was the greatest thing ever.  Zoombezi Bay also has several large waterslides for older children and adults.  We did not try any of them since we had Peter and Liberty with us who really need one parent per kid, but the big slides sure looked fun!

Our final day was spent at the Columbus Zoo & Aquarium.  Both of my kids love animals so they thoroughly enjoyed this and they had never been to an aquarium before so that was an entirely new experience for them.  The Columbus Zoo is much larger than Evansville's local zoo - you could really spend an entire day exploring it.  Sadly our day was cut short when our double stroller's wheel fell off (who would have thought?!) but we still got to visit many animals.  The very first animals we saw were flamingos that were in a petting area.   Peter was able to touch his first flamingo, but Liberty was too shy to try it.

We spent a lot of time in Asia because that is where some of our favorite animals were including the lions and tigers.

Also in Asia we saw sun bears, a reticulated python, flying fox bats (fascinatingly creepy), a rhinoceros, an elephant, and more. The kids loved the elephant!

After Asia, we headed to Shores to visit the aquarium.  There Peter got to touch some sea creatures!  Here you can see him petting a sea star:

He also was able to touch a sea urchin and a hermit crab.  Then we went on to see many colorful fish, some small hammerhead sharks (which wouldn't cooperate for a photo), manatees, penguins, and alligators.  It was at this time that the stroller wheel fell off and refused to stay on, but we were very happy with the wildlife we did get to see and can't wait to go back someday to see more!

The entire Roar and Explore Adventure Getaway Package was a huge hit with our family!  Both of my kids love talking about "the Columus trip" and how much fun they had.  You can view more of our fun vacation photos in our Roar and Explore Adventure Getaway album.   For more details about the Roar and Explore Adventure Getaway or to book your own package, visit the Columbus Family Fun website.
