This movie is a great movie to watch with your family or just sit and enjoy it as a date night with your spouse.
There is a lot of action in this movie and it is intense in some moments. I enjoy action movies based on real life events that keep you on the edge of your seat cheering for the cast and hoping they beat all odds.
There is an all-star cast with Chris Pine, Casey Affleck , Ben Foster and Eric Bana.
Based on the extraordinary true story of the greatest small-boat rescue in the U.S. Coast Guard history, The Finest Hours is a tale of courage, faith and honour in the face of overwhelming odds. When a massive storm strikes off the coast of Cape Cod, it rips a T-2 oil tanker in half, trapping more than 30 sailors on its rapidly sinky stern. As Captain Bernie Webber (Chris Pine) and his crew set out in a 12-seat rescue boat to save them, Chief Engineer Ray Sybert (Casey Affleck) struggles to buy his men more time. Packed with heroic action and thrilling bonus content, The Finest Hours Blu-ray is a triumph.
This movie also includes; A Look at the True Heroes Behind the Story and a French version included.

Adventures In Babysitting || Feature Running Time: Approx. 94 minutes || Starring: Sabrina Carpenter and Sofia Carson || Disney DVD
Adventures in Babysitting a great movie to sit down with the kids for a movie night. Pop some popcorn, get some drinks and enjoy this great movie.
Sofia Carson (Descendants) and Sabrina Carpenter (Girl Meets World) star in a hilarious, action-packed tale of two sitters, inspired by the ’80s classic!

But that night, after newbie babysitter Lola breaks “Rule #1; NEVER take your eyes off the kids,” she’s forced to call Jenny – currently on her own gig – to help track down Trey, who has snuck out. Now with all their young charges in tow, these rivals must team up and brave the big city on the wildest, wackiest adventure of their lives!
The DVD includes Never Before Seen Bloopers and a Free Magnetic Photo Frame.
Since receiving a kidney transplant, I have been eating better and enjoying more natural foods. I like making smoothies for us to enjoy and helping us get our daily fruit and vegetable intake.
The Breville Boss To Go™ Plus is a blender that should be in every home. I love that it comes with 2 (450ml) dual wall insulated cups and a (750ml) mega café-style tumbler with 3 travel lids.

The Breville Boss To Go™ Plus has helped me with making some amazing smoothies for my family to enjoy. While I have a few recipes of my own of smoothies that I love, the Breville Boss To Go™ Plus comes with a recipe book that has a lot of great recipes for Smoothies, Smoothie Bowls, Milk Alternatives, Mocktails and Protein Boosters. The front of the book also gives you ideas on making your own smoothie recipe. I keep this book handy when making my grocery list so I what I need to purchase to make some of these great recipes.
I made my Summertime Pineapple Smoothie with the Breville Boss To Go™ Plus. It was easy to use, which I liked and made making this smoothie, a breeze!
First you add the ice and the yogurt together. Then blend until the ice is broken up.
Then place in the pineapple. (Don’t use as big as a measuring cup as I did. I had made a few smoothies that morning so I had a whole pineapple chopped up in there. )
Then blend again and enjoy! You can make the flavour more exotic by making ice from coconut water.
It is an easy to make recipe that can be enjoyed anytime. The best part is putting it in a travel cup allows you to take it on the go for your morning walk or for traveling to work.
The Breville Boss To Go™ Plus is so easy to operate that my 15 year old daughter, Hayley, was able to make her own smoothies. I also love that it is compact enough that it doesn’t take up a lot of cupboard space in my kitchen.
Mike, the kids and myself love to geocache. It allows us a time to get out and do some “hunting” to find a small box to locate treasure.
Geocaching is easy to do and is a great low cost way of spending some time with the family.
I signed up on Geocaching.com and set up an account for us to keep track of our geocaches.
Next, I purchased some few small trinkets from the dollar store. I usually grab some small army men. You need small items because when you find a geocache location, sometimes you take an item out and put one in. So I try to have small army men on hand. When you locate the geocache you also put your name of your group in there. Then on the geocache app mark it as found. Not all geocache locations require a prize drop off.
We also use a GPS from the car or our phone. On the geocache comments, sometimes there is little hints to tell you where it may be too. We found one from reading it and figuring out the clues. The GPS doesn’t give you the exact location just the area that you may find it. We have some that were hard and took us a bit to find them. But that’s what makes it fun, it is like searching for treasure. Once we find it we are excited to go onto the next one.
I recommend starting with the easy ones first so you can get to know how the app works and how you can locate the geocache. We made the mistake of after a few easy we went hard and we couldn’t find it. So we went back to the easy to get use to the “clues” and using the GPS.
Make sure you also bring bug spray, sun screen, a hat, pencil and a camera. If you are going to be out for awhile, pack a picnic lunch or make sure you have some treats. If you want to bring your dog with you while you are going, be sure to have a bowl and a water bottle for them.
There are geocaches all over the world. More than 2.5 million geocaches are waiting to be found in over 180 countries. It is a great way to discover the area around you. When we head out east this summer for our family vacation, we plan on doing some geocaching out there. What a great way to discover Canada through different means than the traditional way of hitting tourist spots.
Comment below and tell me if you have ever gone geocaching or are you planning to in the future?

I am trying to eat and drink healthier foods since receiving my kidney transplant. I find that smoothies are a great way to get a lot of the fruits, vegetables that you may not get in your meals. It is also easier to hide certain fruits and vegetables, if you have a child who will not eat them as often.
