As we were heading down to breakfast this morning, we walked by the Sesame Street character breakfast. The kids inside were having a blast, dancing with Elmo and hugging Cookie Monster. The little ones were bouncing around, elated to sit down for a meal with their favorite characters. There are various shows and activities to do throughout the day with Sesame Street, like finding the letter of the day with Grover, exercising with Elmo and looking for rubber duckies with Ernie.
The highlight of the cruise was lying on the "trampoline" on the front, a series of criss-crossed ribbons that form a webbing with nothing but ocean several feet beneath, and being splashed as the catamaran crested the waves. We also stopped for a while to swim in the ocean, which was surprisingly warm, and even found a starfish and several sea urchins by diving down to the bottom. On the short ride back to the resort, the crew taught us some Jamaican dancing, and the DJ mixed in a few fun American songs for us to enjoy.
I briefly mentioned this week that I adopted a cat over the weekend. My newly adopted cats name is Sebastian and I picked him up from the Humaine Society on Dort Hwy. I will tell you that my experience in visiting the Humane Society was rather depressing, for a better lack of terms, due to all the animals that are without a home (I'm a bit of a softy when it comes to animals.) So in keeping to the spirits of adopting a pet, I ran across this commercial for the Humane Society that made me think of all the homeless animals sitting in shelters everywhere. Check it out!
Tori, a partially paralyzed dog, enjoys the State of Michigan. Tori is 'handi-capable' of walking and running through the hiking trails, viewing wildlife, enjoying streams and all the beautiful scenery that Michigan has to offer. Even though Tori's hind legs are in a wheelchair, it sure doesn't seem to slow her down. Watch this adorable dog after the jump.
If there's one talent moms have, it's their killer poker face. That's why you may not have noticed any disappointment from gifts you've given her on a holiday, birthday or Mother's Day in the past, from macaroni necklaces to wilted bouquets. And though we're sure you've given her lots of things she adores, you don't want to make the mistake of giving her something she doesn't.
Here's a list of five things to avoid handing over on Mother's Day:
Whether you've already splurged on mom or are panicking at the last minute to find an easy way to show your appreciation for all she does, have no fear. The Internet is here to save the day with online Mother's Day cards. Some showcase your sense of humor, some get all mushy gushy and heartfelt, but all are delivered instantly with no postage cost.
Whether you're tight on cash or simply want to shower mom with gifts from the heart, opting for the DIY route is a great alternative to storebought treats. And even though she'll love anything you get her, she'll definitely notice -- and appreciate -- the extra bit of elbow grease you put into Mother's Day this year.
Below, a few instructional videos on how to make creative Mother's Day gifts from scratch.
If you really think about it, Mother's Day is the perfect opportunity to make up for all those times you gave mom a hard time during your youth. After all, a bouquet of daffodils now definitely excuses that time you snuck out of the house at 2 am. And a box of gourmet truffles? The perfect antidote to the antique china you broke while running around like a wild banshee.
But while flowers and chocolate are dandy, they don't last long. Treat Mom to one of these five Mother's Day gifts she'll both use and love for years to come:
