How to Get Your Video Game Kid Off the Couch and Outside

This post contains affiliate links. My boys couldn't be more different. And yet so similar. Jason's a YouTube-watching, video game-playing teenager. And Ryan's a YouTube-watching, sports-playing almost-teen. So we're often trying hard to get our kids to exercise. With Jason, it's certainly more of an effort. Ryan played basketball in the winter and just started up Little League baseball, so he's certainly active these days. Jason, however, loves playing his video games and working hard on his school robotics team. We love that he's into that, considering he wants to be a computer programmer one day, but we also need to make sure he's staying active. So how do you get non-active kids ...

Avengers Infinity War Giveaway – Win a $300 Prize Pack

This post contains affiliate links. We're running out of time. There's only one week left until Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters. And if my calculations are correct, that means Captain America only has one week to live. (See my Avengers death odds post for my predictions.) Obviously I have some very seriously mixed emotions! It's been 10 years in the making and Avengers: Infinity War looks to be the greatest battle for humanity ever to grace the silver screen. I already have tickets for opening weekend and the following weekend. Chances are I may end up seeing it every weekend until it stops playing. Yeah, I'm a "little bit" excited. Avengers: Infinity ...

Odds on Favorites for Which Avengers Will Die in Infinity War

It's almost "Go Time," people! With just two weeks until Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War, I can barely sleep at night. I remember when the first Avengers film came out. It was everything I had hoped for and something the 10-year-old me never would have imagined possible. Not in a million years. Now, we get not only a full-set of Avengers (and then some), but Doctor Strange, The Guardians of the Galaxy and yes, even Spider-Man. And we don't just get them chilling at the Avengers Mansion, swapping costume tips. Uh uh. We get one of the greatest comic stories ever told as the mad Titan Thanos looks to rule the universe ...

ABC’s Deception Casts a Magical Spell on Traditional Crime Dramas

Some of my favorite childhood memories involve joining my dad in Manhattan for work. Every once in awhile he'd either have a day off or it'd be a weekend and the two of us would head into the Big Apple. I'd play with things on his desk (nothing like a good pair of scissors!) or the copy machine down the hall. But the best part of the day was easily the magic shop. I loved performing magic tricks and my dad loved taking me to the magic shop near his office. The coolest, most entertaining salesmen in the world have to be people who work at magic shops. They just love ...

Taste the Rainbow of the New Avengers Infinity War Posters

This is not a drill. Nor is it an April Fool's Day joke. It's almost Go Time. Yes, April is officially here and that means we can officially start the countdown to Avengers Infinity War! Hitting theaters on April 27, you better believe I already have my tickets in hand for me and the family. I should probably go purchase more for the second weekend now before it sells out too... Anyways, the hype is just beginning as the craziest, biggest superhero-filled movie ever gets ready to hit the screen. As such, Marvel has released a series of five new Infinity War posters to wet our appetites. Each poster is color coordinate ...
