Exploring Niagara Falls with the Discovery Pass #90DayRoadTrip #Travel

There are some places that you see in life where the sheer beauty and wonder just take your breath away. For me, one of those places was Niagara Falls. When I experienced it by myself a few years ago, I knew it was a place I had to share with my boys. A few weeks ago, I got that chance as part of our #90DayRoadTrip, when we visited Niagara Falls together as a family, and took advantage of the awesome 2015 Discovery Pass, which allowed us to discover all of the amazing activities that the area has to offer.

This is How I Stand Being in a Van with 4 Boys on a #90DayRoadTrip #PERKFRESH

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of PERK for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Have you ever been around a teenage boy for a long time? I mean, as in 24/7 for 90 days straight? Well, sometimes teen and pre-teen boys leave a lot to be desired in the personal hygiene department. I am currently in a strong-hold debate with one of my boys over why they should wear deodorant, and don't even get me started on the smell of their shoes and socks. So, how does a mom survive being trapped in a mini-van with four boys on a #90DayRoadTrip? With the PERK Visor Wrap of course.

Delicious - Emily's Home Sweet Home #App Review

It seems that all I ever do is work, work and work some more. When I am not constantly doing things with the boys, I am spending every waking moment working. Sometimes though, I just need to escape reality for a bit and zone out for a few minutes. That's why I love time management apps and games so much. I have tried a ton of them in the past. They are challenging, and help to take my mind out of the real world for a bit and just relax. RealNetworks' GameHouse Division has just released their latest addition to the Delicious app series, Delicious - Emily's Home Sweet Home, and it is my latest distraction.

Hotel Breakers at Cedar Point #90DayRoadTrip #Travel

If you read my post yesterday, you got a taste of some of the old fashioned fun that we had during our visit to the Sandusky area. On the night of our arrival, we had the opportunity to stay at the historic Hotel Breakers, which recently underwent a multi-million dollar renovation. I can tell you, the renovations were worth every penny. From little touches like the flooring in the bathroom made to look like the worn and weathered wood of a beach boardwalk, to the throwback decor to
the bygone days of Cedar Point sprinkled throughout the hotel like the antique carousel horses in the lobby, Hotel Breakers is the perfect place for families who want the full "Cedar Point" experience.
