I’ve gotten so much positive feedback on the copycat Starbucks Pink Drink recipe I put up on the blog last month and I just wanted to thank you guys so much! Since most of us aren’t going out, it’s fun to try to make our favorites at home. What copycat recipe do you want me to share next?

Back in January, we visited @legolandflorida for the first time. One of the highlights of that trip, was discovering Granny's Apple Fries. We've been pretty obsessed with them since the first bite and wanted to try to recreate them at home.⁣
⁣
I researched, I googled, I tried two different recipes that I found online that claimed to be Legoland Granny apple fries copycat recipes. And they were both huge failures. ⁣
⁣
After a whole lot of brainstorming and trial and error, we fell back on something that seems to save the day for us on a regular basis... funnel cake batter. ⁣
⁣
We dipped our apple sticks in the batter, fried and tossed in a cinnamon sugar mix. OMG... HEAVEN.  Cinnamon sugar apple fries are EVERY 👏🏻 THING 👏🏻 and I’m sharing the recipe today on the blog (click on the link in our bio or swipe up in stories). ⁣
⁣
Would you dip them with caramel, whipped cream or both?⁣

One of my fondest memories growing up was going fishing with my Papa and my Uncle (swipe left to see me and Papa just before one of those fishing adventures). #ad There was something about that special time outdoors, waiting to see if we could catch something, that still brings a smile to my face. ⁣
⁣
My kids have a very different childhood. While they love to play outside, most of their hobbies are done inside and include a screen. I often wish I could show them how much fun it was to have a technology-free childhood. ⁣
⁣
Now that we’ve been spending more time at home, we are making it our mission to introduce things from our own childhood, starting with fishing. I’m happy to report that we’ve added fishing to our weekly calendar, and we feel good about bonding over “reel time” with our kids, reminiscing about our childhood and passing along our nostalgia and knowledge of fishing to our kids with the help of these Just Add Nature kits. ⁣
⁣
Just Add Nature is easy, FUN and designed with kids in mind! Plus, you can pick them up at @walmart or on Walmart.com for under $8! ⁣

Have you ever taken your kids fishing? What ways are you incorporating outdoor time into your schedule? ⁣

One of my fondest memories...

You know our family loves all things A-R-T. You can often find one of us drawing, sketching or painting #ad. So when we found out about BodyMark by BIC Temporary Tattoo Markers we couldn’t wait to try them out! Last week, Super Dad spent some much needed quality time with our oldest, Lucia, creating this gorgeous masterpiece. Didn’t he do a great job? Lucia also drew something to remind her of our late Nana on her other arm that turned out so beautiful. Check out our stories to see the video! I love it! ⁣
⁣
If your family loves art as much as we do, you’ll love these @BodyMarkbyBIC markers. They are special because they are designed to be used on skin. The flexible tip makes it easy to draw thin or broad lines. BodyMark comes in 8 vibrant colors and the designs can last a few days, but are also easily removable by concentrated soap and water or make up wipes. You can purchase them on Amazon (swipe up in stories). I’m thinking about pulling these out at our next kids party! Wouldn’t that be fun? ⁣

Iyla (pronounced eye-la) loves coding, Pokemon, talking to her friends, learning new languages (currently Hebrew and French) and hanging out with her sisters. ⁣

Iyla has a huge heart. This year, she is donating half of her birthday money to @cancerfreekids. She is going to change the world. I know it. ⁣
⁣
And while it may not be the birthday she imagined, the important thing is that we will be together. We will have a zoom party with friends and family, I’ll bake her a cake and make her a special dinner. She’ll open a present or two. We will make sure she knows how much we love her. ⁣

Since today is National Chocolate Chip Day, I asked my 10 year old what her all-time favorite chocolate chip dessert is. I wasn't at all surprised when she told me it was cannolis, because they are also my fave. But although I love to bake and I'm always up for a challenge, the idea of making my own cannoli shells scares me, mainly because I have the hardest time rolling out dough evenly. Anyone else have that problem? Any tips?⁣ Anyhoo, since she knows I'm not going to be making actual cannolis anytime soon, Iyla had the brilliant idea to make cannoli cupcakes instead. Genius! I am much more confident in my cupcake making abilities. So cannoli cupcakes it was! ⁣
⁣
Cinnamon and chocolate chip cupcakes with a mascarpone frosting, topped with mini chocolate chips and a cannoli chip. They turned out amazing and today I’m sharing the recipe on the blog. Just click on the link in our bio or swipe up in stories. ⁣

Today is actually “Dance Like a Chicken Day”. I had plans to dress Super Dad in a chicken costume and make him dance, but spending $50 on a chicken costume didn’t seem like the smartest financial decision, considering the circumstances. ⁣

So instead, enjoy this cute little video of Falynn dancing to her 3 year old rendition of her favorite Wicked song, Popular. Her little voice 😭⁣

Hopefully you’ve read our previous post about why we loved Legoland Florida even more than Disney World. Now, we wanted to share the 5 things we loved most about Legoland. It was hard to narrow it down because honestly, we loved it all, but these five things were our absolute favorite and the things you shouldn’t miss when you visit!

Our Favorite Things at Legoland Florida

Man hands up on a roller coaster

Mia’s Riding Adventure

Mia’s Riding Adventure was, by far, Super Dad, Lucia and Falynn’s favorite. They went on it seven times during our visit. 7 TIMES! Not only does it rock back and forth, but it spins at the same time. The girls kept telling me that they felt like they were flying. I didn’t personally ride this one because I tend to get dizzy easily, but the way that they talk about it, they are making me want to try it, just once.

Mia’s Riding Adventure can be found in Heartlake City. Pick your horse and saddle up for a ride on the exciting disc coaster!

lego movie world

Lego Movie Ride

The Lego Movie Ride can be best described as Epcot’s Soarin’ and Universal’s Jimmy Fallon ride meets Lego characters! We absolutely loved it and went on twice while we were there. Both times were were on the 2nd level, so next time we visit, we are going to try a different level hopefully.

Lego Movie Ride can be found in Lego Movie World. This flying theatre attraction where guests join Master Builders on a Triple Decker Flying Couch transporting riders all over THE LEGO® MOVIE™ universe.

Granny’s Apple Fries

I spotted Granny’s Apple Fries as soon as we walked into the park. I knew I had to try them. And try them we did… three different times! The girls weren’t sure about them but once I convinced them to try one, those apple fries had no chance. We finished them in minutes. We loved the caramel dipping sauce the best! Next time we will try them with soft serve ice cream! YUM! It’s no wonder why Granny’s Apple Fries was one of our favorite things at Legoland.

Granny’s Apple Fries can be found in Fun Town, right next to the carousel. A LEGOLAND® original! Indulge in warm Granny Smith apple fries, dusted with cinnamon and sugar and served with a sweet whipped cream dipping sauce! And you’ll love their newest twist – a la mode!

Lego Models

Literally everywhere you look, both in Legoland and in the Legoland hotel, there are these incredible and intricate Lego models. I couldn’t help but think of all the time it takes me to try to create a little Lego house. Lego has created these pieces of art that are absolutely amazing! I have no idea how much time or Lego pieces went into each of these models, but I know that the people who created them must have the patience of a saint!

family on the coastersaurus at legoland florida

Coastersaurus

Wooden rollercoasters freak me out y’all. I’m not sure why, but ever since I was a kid, they scared me. Maybe it’s the noises they make or how they look like they will just fall apart if you touch them. Who knows. I let the family go on Coastersaurus and they convinced me that it was the best roller coaster ever. They practically pulled me on. I faced my fear and have to admit, it was FUN! Seriously. Fun and of the three coasters I went on in Legoland, it turned out to be my favorite (though The Great Lego Race – the Virtual Reality coaster was a close second)!

Coastersaurus can be found in Land of Adventure. This wooden coaster curves and dips in and around a prehistoric jungle of animated and life-sized LEGO® brick dinosaurs.

Don’t forget to check out our highlight video:

Have you been to Legoland Florida? What were your favorites?

It was hard to narrow it down because honestly, we loved so much at Legoland Florida, but these five things were our absolute favorite and the things you shouldn't miss when you visit!

    How cool! I had no idea LEGOLAND was a full fledged amusement park as well. I really thought it was only a display of the artwork—and you shared some awesome images of both sides here. The Lego Movie was one of my favorites. May have to suggest it to the nieces…

    So cool! We have annual passes to Legoland San Diego but I didn’t know things were that different at the Florida location. We are getting the Lego movie ride and I think 1 or 2 more this spring which is exciting. So interesting that the Apple Fries are different too. Ours is a small walk up stand and only comes with whipped cream to dip. Still amazing though!! I sure do love the coastasaurus!
