Hey friends, have you ever been in either of these situations: 1. You are invited to a party and on the way there you forget to buy drinks for the host or 2. You are having a lot of fun at your party and the beer runs out, but you do not want to do a beer run for fear of missing out on the fun that you and your guest are having. 

If these situations sound familiar, then you need to download the Drizly app before your next party. Let me tell you how this app came in handy and how easy it was to use.

Kubo and the Two Strings review

From the nods to Ray Harryhausen and Akira Kurosawa, KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS is an instant masterpiece that will please all who watch it. Now I know that sounds like a big claim to make, but this movie is a breath of fresh air.

Cooking dinner in minutes with Minute® Ready to Serve Rice. #ReadySetServe

When I was younger my dad cooked for us all the time. One of his first jobs when he came to America was a line cook at a local pancake house. For breakfast on the weekends my father would make my sisters and me different kinds of pancakes. He would make us: chocolate, strawberry or banana pancakes and we always loved eating them.

Unboxing and Reviewing the LEGO Nexo Knights

Disclaimer: The Fandads received a free AXL LEGO Nexo Knights figure for this review, but all words and opinions are our own. 

LEGO has been a big part of my life since I was a little boy. One of my favorite LEGO sets was the Police Rescue Boat that my parents got me one year.  I would play with that boat wherever there was water.

I stopped collecting LEGOs for a while, but started up again once they started making Star Wars sets. I loved the fact that I could create my favorite scenes and vehicles and then create something entirely new once I finished building one of my sets. That's the great thing about these sets: They let your build whatever your imagination wants to make.

What's coming soon from Hasbro?

The San Diego Comic-Con has come and gone and in it's wake it has left us with a barrage of images of toys that will be out later this year. Man, my wallet is already starting to hate me. Some of the toys we have highlighted below are from the Star Wars line and the Marvel Legends series. Which figures will you pick up when they are released?

Frito-Lay helps children get wild this summer!

With summer already underway, parents are trying to find ways to keep their children busy and active until school starts. When it comes to my family, we try to be frugal with our summer adventures and try to take advantage of everything that our city has to offer us. One thing that we like to do is look online for offers that can save us a few dollars and luckily Frito-Lay® and Quaker Chewy® Bars are here to help us out again.

Passing the Torch

Pokemon GO! Am I right? It's taking over the nation, nay, the world. It's everywhere but don't worry this isn't another blog about Pokemon Go.

Not that I've gotten to play that much anyway.
It's about the Pokemon trading card game! Sort of. Anyway, my daughters have been into Pokemon for about a year now. They started watching the show on Netflix and my oldest slowly became interested in the trading card game. Of course this was a huge moment for me. I've played trading card games on and off for over half of my life and I was excited to have another hobby I could share with my kids.
