What We Found In Lost Egypt {Review & Giveaway}

11 May

Disclaimer: I was given tickets to The Franklin Institute and the Lost Egypt exhibit free of charge for the purposes of this review. As always, the opinions are all mine.

Before I start I need to say that my photos are lacking because Bill and I both used our phones to take pictures and while we were out his phone was hacked and erased along with all the photos he took that day.

We took the boys on a weekday figuring that it might be a little less crowded but it was Election Day so no such luck.

As soon as we walked into the exhibit we saw this super awesome camel. The boys couldn’t wait to hop on for a photo or two. They never want their picture taken so the fact that they were more than just willing is saying a lot.

Making the wind blow around the pyramids.

There were so many fun, interactive things to see and do. It was fun for the kids but it was also really interesting for the adults. The exhibits made the kids think. From seeing what happens to sand as it blows around the pyramids, to trying to piece together a broken pot, everything was very engaging.

Piecing together an ancient pot.

My favorite part was the ancient artifacts. Looking at mummies and stones that were thousands upon thousands of years old was quite humbling. I had Cameron doing the math to figure out how old each artifact was so it was extra educational for him.

Logan loved looking at the x-ray of the mummified cat.

The only downside is that it was too small, I left there wanting more.

RICE For Recovery

28 Aug

Every athlete worth his or her salt knows what RICE is, mostly because we’ve all had to use it at some point.

For those not in the know RICE stands for; rest, ice, compression, elevation and is what you need when you’re injured.

Although I used RICE when I first started to feel pain in my foot and ankle I still had to go through a pretty invasive surgery to correct the problem. About six weeks ago I went under the knife had have been going through the amazingly slow process to become well again.

RICE has also become an integral part of my post surgical recovery but it’s a little bit different this time around.


Turkey Hill All Natural

Let’s face it, when you go from averaging 20-30 miles a week to being stuck on the couch or in bed it does things to you. It didn’t take long before I was feeling pretty down and out. I was definitely resting, since it was downright painful to get around those first few weeks. I was constantly elevated since it hurt not to be. All that was missing was the ice cream.

After a long day of sitting on the couch, staring at the TV my carton of Turkey Hill All Natural ice cream gave me the pick me up I needed. On days when Bill was traveling and the kids were at grandparent’s house I found a way to crutch my way to the freezer and back with my ice cream and a spoon. I found creative ways to get my treat and lift my sprits.

I’m getting closer to walking everyday and the fact that I made it through those first, mind-blowingly difficult weeks was due, in no small part, to my Turkey Hill ice cream.

In celebration of my recovery I want to share the Turkey Hill All Natural ice cream love with YOU!
