Invented by a dad who was tired of the age old “Dad, we are bored” statement while at the beach (or the Jersey Shore in this case) and decided to invent something fun for the entire family.

Bean Bag Bucketz is the newest in outdoor gaming for everyone. This new game can be played anywhere by anyone. It is easy to transport to any outing from tailgating, camping, the beach, the pool or just a backyard. Learn about the game, the story, and about the company behind Bean Bag Bucketz.

To order your Bean Bag Bucketz is as easy as 1-2-3! Visit their website and have yours delivered to you by the big holiday weekend coming up! To purchase the entire set is only $59.99, for more information or to purchase yours click here.

Behind the scenes at SeaWorld San Diego

by

A few weeks ago, my son and I were lucky enough to experience a behind the scenes tour of SeaWorld San Diego. Prior to visiting, I had no idea how much SeaWorld does for its marine life. If you have grown up in San Diego you no doubt have seen members of the SeaWorld team at a beach either helping to rescue an animal or release one back into the ocean. SeaWorld has rescued over 30,000 animals and 17,000 of them have been healthy enough to be released back into the wild – and the numbers keep growing everyday!

The day we visited was a unique one even for the SeaWorld crew because they had recently rescued a pregnant sea lion from the Oceanside Harbor. She gave birth the day before we arrived and we were able to see the one day old seal lion pup up close in the animal hospital. While we were visiting the state of the art facility, we also saw a penguin being checked out, which was particularly special for my son, because penguins are his favorite animal. And what’s even cooler, all of this is done on-site at SeaWorld, and their animals really have the best of everything, including their food. For example, just the penguins themselves eat over 700 pounds of  high quality fish per day!

We were also able to venture behind the scenes of the Penguin Encounter and come face to beak with a penguin. And not only did we get to meet a penguin we found out so much about them. There are five different types of penguins at SeaWorld, and over 400 penguins total. Everyday inside the Penguin exhibit they make fresh snow, that’s over 4,000 pounds of snow a day!

Want to see more of SeaWorld? Check out this FUN video from the Murray family made by WomensForum and SeaWorld San Diego.

Spending the day with my son at SeaWorld San Diego may have been one of the best days we have ever had. For more information or to purchase tickets visit SeaWorld’s website here.
