It’s no secret that fall is the absolute best season, don’t debate me. The weather is often perfect, and it is the beginning of holiday fun. When I was a kid we went pumpkin and apple picking in school. We did hay rides and corn mazes and I looked forward to the start of the holiday season. Do they even do that in school anymore? I only have a kindergartener so I could just be unaware but I haven’t heard any pumpkin or apple talk from any of the children that I know that are older. The child in me still loves these activities and I take the boys to the pumpkin patch EVERY year. It’s a tradition I’m not willing to let go of. So of course I scouted out my favorite pumpkin patches near NYC, and I can’t keep the goods to myself.
You guys already know that my littles and I LOVE Netflix. I’m not gonna lie though these kids are not easy to convince to try something new. If I let them they would watch Into the Spiderverse, Motown Magic, Twice Upon a Christmas and Gnome Alone in rotation all day. So over the weekend when Archibald’s Next Big Thing started streaming it took a little convincing. I don’t blame them, you like what you like. But mommy’s vote outweighs them all so when it was family time to Netflix and chill, I was ready to see what Archibald was up to.
If you have been on the internet at all recently you have probably seen that Romper, the leading destination for millennial moms is hosting their first ever Camp Romper festival. More exciting? They are coming straight for us NY mamas! When the email about Camp Romper slid into my inbox I was MORE THAN excited because I am always looking for things for us to do especially now in the fall before it gets TOO cold. Camp Romper is rolling around right at the perfect time, between back to school and the beginning of Fall to give moms and their kids an opportunity for a day full of fun-filled memories.
I am admittedly a scaredy cat but Halloween feels like the official start of the holiday season to me and thus, it is a favorite. I love dressing up the boys, taking them out and then hiding and eating their candy for days. We are always looking for movies to get us into the spirit of ANY holiday really, so our Netflix subscription stays paid. When I was younger I used to look forward to Halloween on the Disney channel. Now thankfully, platforms like Freeform give us 31 days of Halloween (check out the lineup from my friend Sanaa). But since I’m positive I have some cord cutters I’m passing on the streaming options. If you want to get into the Halloween spirit with the whole family without getting spooked, here is a list of Halloween movies on Netflix kids.
D23 Expo was last week and of course everyone was REALLY there to find out more of the scoop on Disney+. Disney’s streaming service is set to launch this November and will give you access to over 500 films, 10 original films and THOUSANDS of TV show episodes all within it’s first year. It will also be the only place you can stream Disney’s 2019 slate of movie releases. And with a surprisingly reasonable price, one had to wonder what other goodness was coming to Disney’s latest platform. Then we found out that there would be a special sign up for d23 members to sign up for Disney plus and be a member of the founders circle and of course I couldn’t wait for the details!
