The rivers in Colorado are certainly flowing this summer! As a result of the above average snowpack we received this past winter and the cooler spring temperatures that prevented rapid early season snowmelt, river flows have been very sustainable this season.
Since 1987, The Adventure Company has been setting the standard for top quality white water rafting! In order to ensure our guests have a safe and fun trip, we only hire guides that have at least four years of commercial white water guiding experience. As the only company in Colorado with this strict guide experience policy, our guests will have an expert guide even on a beginner trip.
I have walked into chocolate shops and candy stores before wishing I could have whatever I wanted. Here was my chance! I got to share the experience with my hubby. We were invited to the soft opening of the new See’s Candies store at the Promenade in Westlake. We jumped at the chance to go and try some of See’s famous chocolates.
The store was closed, in fact it was the day before the official opening day. We were with a small group of bloggers, media people, and VIP guests. Why were we there? To share this exciting news with you, of course!
If you are a chocolate lover like me, there is no doubt that you have this same dream. I will admit, it was a Diabetic’s nightmare – but chances like this do not come by often. Lito and I love See’s Candies and we had such a good time at the new store. We learned a lot about the company’s standards, it’s history, and the quality of it’s products. We sampled many pieces of chocolate and my sugar levels did spike, yet I have been very careful since that day.
Mostly, it was a fun date! We got to compete in a contest much like the episode from I love Lucy where we learned how to quickly hand pack a box of chocolates. We came home with some gifts that the boys enjoyed and plenty of sweets to indulge in later. And next time I need to get a gift, I know just the perfect thing!
Here is the famous scene from I Love Lucy:

Thanks to the folks at Pirates Dinner Adventures for hosting me and my family and allowing me to experience their show first hand as a US Family Guide blogger. And best of all, I get to share their exclusive $25 off offer with you! (Disclosure)
“Set aboard an authentically replicated 18th-century Spanish galleon measuring 46 feet long, 18 feet wide with 40-foot masts, the ship is anchored in a 300,000-gallon indoor lagoon with night sky lighting. Surrounding the lagoon is a six-sided showroom of six additional ships where the audience is seated.
Voyagers on each of the six ships have their own fearless pirate mascot whom they cheer on as the adventure unfolds with a cast a dozen actors, singers and stunt performers engaging in a bounty of action-packed exploits, accompanied by cannon blasts, pyrotechnics and plenty of laughs.
In addition, more than 150 guests have the chance to play an actual role in each show as the evil Captain Sebastian the Black leads his crews of renegades on a swashbuckling adventure before your very eyes!”
When my son became a pirate, he was chosen by one of the cast members at the Pirate’s Dinner Adventure Show. By that time, many people, young and old, had been asked to join in the fun. He ran up with the rest of the swashbuckling young men and was eager to find out what his part would be.
What a fun adventure for all of us! The entertainment, music and songs, the food, the service – - everything about the experience was exciting, light-hearted and top notch. Anytime we have guests from out of town or for a special occasion, I plan to go there again and again.
And I love to visit awesome attractions everywhere I go, every chance I get – - even in my home town!
I especially love sharing these experiences with my family.
It’s a great website that reviews vacation spots and attractions around the world with a family’s perspective.
