Harley Quinn Tween Costume Review

Harley Quinn Tween Costume

If you’re a regular reader of my dad blog, then you know the kids and I love Halloween. In my opinion, Halloween should be a national holiday. We love decorating and dressing up for Halloween. Last year, my kids dressed up as Flash, Deathstroke, Apple White, and a serial killer. That’s right, my youngest daughter wanted to be a serial killer. I hope that’s not a sign of things to come. For the next Halloween, she’s going to dress up as Harley Quinn. If you don’t know, Harley Quinn is the Joker’s sidekick. Like the Joker, Harley Quinn is a prankster and has a wicked sense of humor. Kinda of like my youngest daughter.

Tracking Dexter from Night at the Museum 3

Dexter from Night at the Museum 3 on a bike ride

Spring break is almost over for my kids. Earlier in the week, the kids went up to Seattle to visit their auntie. I didn’t go, but Dexter the monkey from Night at the Museum 3 went with them. We couldn’t fit everyone in the car, so I was voted off the trip. For the trip, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment sent us some goodies (Dexter, passport, travel journal, postcards, crayons and tote bag) to track Dexter’s adventures. BTW, Night at the Museum 3 is available now on DVD, Blu-ray and digital HD. The photo above is a bike ride in Portland. Check out the other photos below.

Penguins Chill Out Family Movie Night

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment recently sent us a bunch of goodies to host a family movie night. We watched Penguins of Madagascar (giveaway | review). This is actually the second time for my youngest son. He really likes the animated film. The main activity while watching the movie was making ice cream. We’ve never made ice cream before. It’s actually fairly easy with the YayLabs Ice Cream Ball — just add rock salt and ingredients. The product included several recipes. We made the mint chocolate chip ice cream. It was yummy!

4 Things About the Home Movie – a Lilo and Stitch wannabe

Home (DreamWorks Animation)

My two youngest children and I saw an early screening of Home recently. The animated film from DreamWorks Animation is about an alien named Oh. He and his people invaded Earth and then relocated all the humans to a rural area of the planet. The story isn’t great, but the movie is humorous and there’s plenty of action. My kids and I enjoyed the film. The movie will appeal to both kids and adults, but I think children will enjoy the animated film more. Home opens in theaters this weekend, March 27th.
