Monster Energy Supercross #stlouis

Last evening we went to the Monster Energy AMA Supercorss event. I didn't know what to expect since we had never been before but it was so fun. We had pretty good seats and we could see everything. I wish I had brought my better camera but I got some pretty decent shots. This was the start of the first race.
It wasn't that loud but there was entertainment every minute that we were there and it was very exciting. The kids were sitting on their edge of their seats during all of the races. 
They even had a little kid race and they were ages 6-7 so cute!
They did a little race and they even gave trophies it was so sweet.
On the last 2 races they even had fire!
From start to finish it was about 4 hours long and we had a great time the entire time. The kids had alot of fun and so did Danny and I.I would definitely recommend going to  event in your area or again next year it is so much fun for the whole family.

Three Must-Have, Eco-Friendly Sandals for Spring

For many people, winter has been remarkably cold and long, so it may be difficult to imagine spring will ever return, while dreaming about it incessantly. One great way to beat the winter blues is by thinking forward to spring and choosing some must-have items to add to your wardrobe when winter finally melts and spring rules again. A good pedicure and high-quality sandal will usher in spring and carry you into summer. The best sandals are comfortable and versatile – casual enough to throw on for a trip to the beach, yet formal enough to wear with a beautiful maxi skirt or knee-length dress. Here are a few great options from Reef, which creates shoes made with water-based glues and are free of PVC.

A unique favorite in all Reef’s shoes, this Roman-style sandal features a beautiful leather weave design that adds versatility to its appearance. Unlike most flat sandals, Reef sandals feature a padded leather deck with arch and heel support to create comfort as well as style. Wear them with linen pants, short skirts, long skirts, or even shorts. Slightly Bohemian, these sandals are hippie-chic and go with just about anything.

If you’re looking for a simple, straightforward flip-flop, look no further. Reef has a variety of classic flip-flops, and one favorite is Reef Twisted Stars. The simple strap on this sandal features a braided, gold glitter strap that adds a touch of glitz and romance to any outfit. The glitter adds to the versatility of this sandal. Dress it up or down for a unique, beautiful look.


If you’re looking for something out of the ordinary, the Guatemalan Knot features bright colors that will add a splash of pizzazz to many outfits. Best of all, the strap is made out of hand-woven textiles from Guatemala, providing jobs for local artisans. This style offers Reef’s signature sole, offering comfort that goes beyond the quality of a typical sandal. Available in a few different color choices, the Guatemala Knot is a great addition to your wardrobe and offers years of durability and style.

Earths Best Baby Food Pouches

Earth's Best


I love Earth's Best baby food products. We use them daily and I was sent a box of different items to try out. Today I will be sharing their baby food pouches. My baby can eat these all by himself now and he just sucks everything out. Here were the three that we tried.
The first is Carrot Split Pea Kamut this pouch has 2-3 grams of protein inside.

The next one we tried is their Pear Apricot and Barley.

NEW EARTH’S BEST ORGANIC® FRUIT & GRAIN PUREES offer healthful and unique flavors in portable, squeezable pouches for babies 6 months and older. These delicious blends of organic fruit and hearty whole grains are an ideal meal for your baby or a wholesome snack for your toddler. Each variety contains 2g of fiber per serving, 45% of the daily value of vitamin C, and 25% of the daily value of Zinc and antioxidant vitamins A & E.

The last one we tried was his favorite it was Organic Fruit and Yogurt Smoothie in Strawberry banana.
I love keeping these pouches in the diaper bag for easy feedings on the go. They have alot of great flavors and variety. I also save the points to buy things on their site.

Keep watching for more older baby snack and food items.
