Make Your Own Baby Groot Cupcakes and Celebrate Guardians of the Galaxy

Baby Groot Cupcakes

Marvel Studios can say so very much with so few words. Why, just three little words in fact can move even the stiffest of hearts. No, I’m not talking about, “I love you.” I’m referring to the tree-like alien Groot, who’s famous for his extremely limited vocabulary that consists almost entirely of, “I am Groot.” We just saw Guardians of the Galaxy 2 this weekend to celebrate my son’s 14th birthday and the movie was …

I Raced at Sonoma Raceway, Took the Cars 3 Pit Stop Challenge and Learned the History of NASCAR Racing

#Cars3Event Sonoma Raceway

You know your day’s going to be amazing when it starts out with your bus driving straight onto the race track at Sonoma Raceway. No, this wasn’t a dream. Nor a video game.

Plus the fact that AT-ATs are THE coolest vehicles ever and the …

Puppy Dog Pals Barks Up the Right Tree for Young Animal Lovers

#PuppyDogPalsEvent Puppy Dog Pals

There are two types of people in this world: Dog People and Cat People. I am most definitely one of the former, which is why a show called Puppy Dog Pals is way more appealing to me than if it were called Furry Feline Friends or something. Disney Junior’s newest cartoon Puppy Dog Pals debuts on Friday, April 14 at 10:30 am ET/PT with two back-to-back episodes on the Disney Channel. You can also catch …
