Chuck E. Cheese is a favorite place for me to take my daughter. I love that I can relax and not have to worry too much about where she goes. Plus I love that all the games are only a token! So many times I take the kids somewhere and it costs a dollar to play one game.

Last month Big Bro others and Big Sisters partnered with Chuck E. Cheese to encourage people to volunteer.

Dallas-based Big Brothers and Big Sisters and Chuck E. Cheese’s today announced their partnership in a rally to encourage others to volunteer for the organization. Chuck E. Cheese himself is volunteering to be an Honorary Big to unmatched Littles nationwide, but his first will be in Dallas. There are more than 30,000 unmatched littles in the US and tomorrow night (Tuesday, Apr. 14) at all Chuck E. Cheese’s locations, 10 % of proceeds will go back to BBBS and throughout April guests can donate at the register during their regular visits.

Netflix for Memorial Day Weekend

I am a Netflix Stream Team Member.

All of my shows are over for the season, which makes me sad. But not too sad as Netflix has some great shows to watch and now I have the time to get caught up!

I started watching The Following a few days ago. I’m a little undecided about it but i do enjoy watching Kevin Bacon. The last time I saw him was Footloose. Really? Maybe I don’t know but it’s been a while.

Grace and Frankie is Netflix’s New funny original comedy featuring Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Martin Sheen and Sam Waterson. Wow, what a great line up of actors! I loved Lily Tomlin in Shrinking Woman. That was a long time ago.

Grace and Frankie is a perfect example of how today’s families can shift, rearrange and blend in unexpected ways. When Grace and Frankie’s husbands leave them after 20 years of marriage—to be with each other—the women find themselves facing a change that they never expected, but they shift their perspective to get through it together with the support of their new blended family and, of course, a sense of humor.

Here is what’s new on Netflix for family. Love that Puss in Boots show!

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON – In Theatres Everywhere Today

Avengers25535312606103

I was super excited this week because I knew the new Avengers movie was coming out today. I got hooked on Marvel watching the first one. I’ve been keeping busying catching up with all the other Marvel films and TV shows. My cousin and I decided to get together today and go to lunch and a movie while the kids were in school. We were both siked to see Avengers: Age of Ultron. We went with the 3D RPX showing. It was awesome! The RPX is the Regal Premium Experience. I’ve never been in one of those theaters until today. The screen was bigger and had clear digital projection. And the surround sound was really cool. I could feel the floor shaking and you really “felt” the movie.

Of course the movie was great as expected. I love the introduction to Hawkeye’s personal life and the hint of attraction between the Black Widow and the Hulk. You also get a peek at a few new Avengers. If you are a Marvel fan, this is a must movie!

Marvel Studios presents “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero
movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go
awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible
Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the
balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his
terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and
unique global adventure.
Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” stars Robert Downey Jr., who returns as Iron Man, along with
Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Mark Ruffalo as Hulk and Chris Evans as Captain America. Together
with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and with the additional
support of Don Cheadle as James Rhodes/War Machine, Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill,
Stellan Skarsgård as Erik Selvig and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, the team must reassemble
to defeat James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell-bent on human extinction.
Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Pietro Maximoff, played
by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen and meet an old
friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision.
