Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament-An Exciting Family Evening

We recently went to Medieval Times in Lyndhurst, NJ for Dinner and a Tournament. My husband had been to Medieval Times in another state years ago but, it was the first time for myself and our kids. We were greeted at the door and given red and yellow crowns which were the color of our knight.  After that, we were escorted to our seats and then given a “goodie bag” of special merchandise.

We had great seats at the front of the arena. We sat at a long desk type table allowing us to eat, while not missing any of the action. The waitstaff was great and brought our drinks, soup, main course, dessert and coffee to us. The food is selected so you do not need utensils to eat it. Being able to eat with their hands was a real treat for our kids.

There were also flashing swords and other things you could buy to cheer on your knight. We bought the kids 2 of the flashing LED swords.

When the tournament started all of our eyes were glued to the action. We thought our knight was going to win. Our knight did not win, but he made it to the very last battle. Regardless of the outcome, the evening was still entertaining and fun. Upon exiting the arena, we were able to take photos with the knights as well as buy souvenirs.

After buying some towels and other items, we headed home with great memories. Have you ever been to Dinner and a Tournament at Medieval Times?

As a blogger with the USFG, we received free tickets to Medieval Times. As always my words and views are 100% my own.

Keep Your Kid’s Stuff Safe and Save Money Too!

Would you believe, I heard a friend say today that in 38 days her kids are off for summer vacation? In New York we have much more than that left in our school year, we haven’t even had spring break yet!

Nevertheless, it is time to start thinking about summer programs and camp. It is also a great time to save 25% on Label Daddy labels! Label Daddy is the number one solution for labeling your belongings! Their exclusive laminated coating gives labels an extra layer of protection and is a must for camp!

I have been using Label Daddy labels for years and they hold up. They also keep my kid’s stuff from ending up in the wrong hands. Remember to label all clothing, sports equipment, electronics, and other personal belongings your kids bring to school, camp, sports leagues, day care, vacation, and other places. We use them on our baseball gloves, bats and helmets. Do you know how many times we saw someone trying to take off with one or our bats? More times than I can count I am afraid. That label made it very easy for me to say, “I think that bat is ours.”

Label Daddy labels are great for adults too! Perfect to put on your camera, phone, eyeglass case, tablet, clothing and more. The thing I really love about these peel and stick labels is that they are super durable and washable. They are washer/dryer safe, microwave safe, dishwasher safe and UV resistant! Label Daddy labels are also fun and attractive. You design your own labels! Pick from tons of colors, sizes and logos, including MLB, NBA, and NHL team logos, other sport and fun logos, and more. These labels are made in the USA and shipped directly to you worldwide.

It’s Time To Choose A Better Baby Towel

There is something about bathing baby that is so special. It is a time of bonding and exploration, the older they get the more fun they have splashing playing and of course, getting clean. When baby comes out of the bath, you don’t want to wrap them in some scratchy towel or a towel made with fibers that contains chemicals from dyes. That is why I am so happy to share Luvdbaby’s Premium Hooded Bath Towel with you.

This 100% Un-Dyed Organic Cotton Muslin Towel is perfect for boys or girls and it is hypoallergenic for baby’s sensitive skin. The multi-layer gauze cotton is super absorbent and soft. Baby looks adorable in the hood with its sweet, little bear ears. Best of all this towel can be used for newborns right up to toddlers.

Luvdbaby is a small family business that wanted to manufacture products without the harmful chemicals that are so readily found in dyed baby products. This 34″ by 34″ towel is the natural color of cotton. It doubles as a bathrobe and swaddle for your baby. Best yet, it makes a wonderful item to buy ahead as a new baby gift or as part of your own newborn stash since the color is gender neutral. Towel comes packed in a cute cotton, drawstring bag that is great for travel or storage plus it comes with a free belt which allows you to use it as a bathrobe.

My readers can save 20% on this super soft towel by using the Promo Code FIFTHOFF when they check out on Amazon.
