Warranties...do companies honor them??

I guess we are suckers.  We see a great warrant and end up spending more because it's covered.  Right?  Wrong!  In my experience, it's very rare for a company to actually honor their so called warranty. There are so many loopholes they get out of them.  Plus I imagine many people (myself included at times) forget we even had a warranty. So...when I actually remember and go through the whole long process of trying to get a warranty covered just to be told "nope not covered" it's very frustrating. 

Do you ever have luck with so called warranties?  This last one strung me along for 6 months. Yes 6 months asking for info etc just to say nothing is covered.

Next post...the offending companies.

Hint: Don't ever spend extra on a fancy swing set because it has a great warranty over one you can get cheap at Sam's Club. My friend and I bought at the same time and both lasted the same.  Mine had a warranty on paper, but not in actuality.   She didn't mind throwing hers out because they paid a 3rd kr 4th what we paid.

Challenger Sports - British Soccer Camps - My kids had a blast

This post may be sponsored....
 

 My kids were able to go to the Challenger Sports Soccer camp for a week and they had a blast.  The twins didn't go, but they wore soccer shirts in support.  The older 2 said it was hard work, but fun.  My kids have not played a sport for several years, so I bet it was pretty tough for them.  The last time they played soccer was 2015 when I got pregnant with the twins.  The FL heat did get to my daughter the first day and her coach was great with her.  She had a bad headache and he called me "straight away" to come get her per her request.  It was only about an hour early.  Their coaches are from Scotland.  The other coach is from Hong Kong.
Coach George was great!

Even after the first day my son was showing me some of the skills he was learning and I was impressed.  They didn't really practice a lot of skills back when the played at the Y.  It was mostly recreational and indoors.  They are considering joining a team this fall!

I highly recommend this summer camp.  They got a jersey, a t-shirt, and a soccer ball that they used throughout the week.


Lots of friendships were formed!
Our summer is mostly over, but there are still some camps available in other areas.  If not near you, there's always next summer.  It's a great way to get some skills and learn about other cultures.  My kids are repeating some typical British phrases which I love.

Central Florida’s First Aquapark

We were invited to come and try out Orlando Watersports Complex with my family.  It looks amazing, but I wasn't sure it would be the best fit for us just yet because my twins are only 2yrs old and this isn't my husband's idea of fun.   I decided to pass along the tickets to another family to enjoy and the wonderful people at Orlando Watersports Complex agreed to allow me to give some tickets away.  I have 5 all day passes to share and 2 session tickets.

Click here for their website for more information!

Fiber Optic LED Light up Shoes Review

This post may be sponsored...

I got these shoes from Amazon for my daughter as a gift. They are pretty cool.  They do run a little big so keep that in mind if you get them. She is still growing though and they do go on so she isn't complaining.   I'm 2.5 sizes bigger in shoes than her and I can squeeze my big feet in them. They are too small for me, but they have some stretch and actually felt pretty comfortable even being too small.  

https://amzn.to/2ty40MT

My kids LOVE them.  ALL of them. The on/off switch is on the back behind the heal.  There are several colors and even flashing.  Each shoes can be set however you want.  As a teacher, I hate light up shoes because I'm always telling kids to turn their shoes off which is something I never imagined. I will say these are pretty cool.  I probably won't let my daughter wear them to school though unless it is wacky day or something fun like that, but she loves wearing them everywhere else.

Check out these awesome shoes at Amazon.  Prices vary based on size etc. They come in kids sizes to adult and also in different colors (black, pink, and white).

Crayola Experience Orlando - Review

Tickets were provided to enjoy this experience.
 
We went to Crayola Experience yesterday and all four of my kids had a blast! We actually went last summer, but my twins were only 1 then and really couldn't do a ton. They loved the play area, but trying to contain them was difficult with their newly acquired skill of running. This year there was much more for them to do. My twins ran in excitedly yelling "color, color!" They grabbed the first marker coloring area they could find.
My older two kids are 10&7 and right away they settled into the coloring table. I took the twins to the toddler play area which they love. They especially loved the huge light up display like a gigantic lite brite.

 We all did drip art and the crayon mold.  My twins were so happy about their car and shark crayon.  They also enjoyed the chalk and dry erase section where they could write on the walls, floor, characters (puppy was their favorite). 


There was plenty to do to keep them busy for hours.  Think of it like the ultimate craft day.  All those crafts that you are meaning to do at home, but it takes time, you need supplies, the mess, clean up etc may keep you from getting to it.  The kids can do any kind of craft or art you can think of.  Coloring, markers, crayons, digital art, origami, painting, molding, cutting, etc.  My boys threw a tantrum when I finally said we needed to leave the painting section.  It's SO hard being 2!  The amount of time you will spend all depends on how long your little ones will want to spend on the various projects.  My older 2 spent almost an hour coloring their dragon that they took to a computer and brought to life and coloring a dolphin.  My twins won't sit still for that long, but they enjoyed the play areas and sat for awhile to paint. 

Here is a map of the main area for activities.

I think for the older two the Adventure Lab was one of their favorites.  It is new and not listed on the map.  It's where the paint palette is listed.  You get a tablet and it leads you to three different areas inside to complete a puzzle or mission.  They must have completed 3-5 missions each.

Everything inside is included except for the personalized crayons and the model magic.  You get 2 tokens with each ticket to spend on the model magic or creating your own crayon label.  We even got two coins for the twins who were free because they are under 3.  They loved the model magic.


We happened to be there during the Clearwater Marine Aquarium presentation/event.  My daughter and son stopped to learn about Otters.  They were both given a plush Sea Turtle which was a nice surprise.


I think Crayola Experience is great for kids of all ages.  My kids ages 2-10 were quite happy to spend most of the day there.  There was plenty to keep them busy.  Plus it's a much slower go at your own pace than nearby theme parks.  I will say that it is most cost efficient to get a year pass if you live nearby.  It's only a few dollars more than the ticket cost.

Are you planning on going?  If so SAVE $4 OFF General Admission to Crayola Experience when purchased online via this link.

Ps. My 10yr old took several of the pictures included in this post.
