Fort Collins Museum of Discovery

Hi! It's Jilly. While on our epic road trip we stopped at the Fort Collins Museum of Discovery in Fort Collins, Colorado. We were able to use our Roberson Museum and Science Center membership to get in free because it reciprocates. Woot!

 They have a really fun music exhibit. We spent so much time in this exhibit!

There are stations that teach you how to play different instruments. I played "Louie, Louie" on the electric guitar! Here's Michael on the drums.

It was fun putting together horns and testing them.

This was cool...the skeleton rides the bike while you are so you can see what your bones are doing when you ride a bike!

Indoor Herb Garden In The Winter + AeroGarden Giveaway!

Thank you #Aerogarden for providing product and/or compensation for this review. All opinions are 100% my own. 
Hi! It's Jilly. Anyone who's been to our apartment knows we like to have plants around. My hubby loves to garden and has one of the greenest thumbs I've ever seen! He has kept a couple poinsettias alive since last Christmas. We still have a little, vine-y houseplant that we bought while living in our first apartment over twelve years ago, and we've moved it with us all over the country! See?! Green thumb.

A few years ago he found an AeroGarden at a yard sale and was really excited about it. But, it was while he was in med school and he never got it set up. I didn't really know what the heck it was, so I got rid of it. Wrong choice. He was soooo upset! 

So, when I got the opportunity to review an #AeroGarden I was stoked! I may or may not have told my hubby it was his birthday/Christmas present. He says it's just a replacement for the one I got rid of. Ha!

As soon as we got our AeroGarden the kids wanted to set it up right away! It was super easy to set up, and the kids loved helping.

It's on this timer, so when you set it up all you have do is push a button and the light turns on and off at the right times so that the seeds get the right amount of light! Perfect for our poorly lit apartment! Super easy to water, too.

And, each plant is in it's own little "pod", so it's not messy. Yay for that!

The kids are so excited every day to see how much growth there has been! It's been a fun addition to our homeschool.

SeaDog Speedboat Tour in Chicago

Thank you SeaDog for the tickets to review your tour! All opinions are 100% my own.
Hi! It's Jilly. Another stop we made on our epic road trip was in Chicago. We went to Navy Pier and did a SeaDog tour and speedboat ride! It was sooooo awesome!

Explore Downtown Chicago and Lake Michigan on a SeaDog cruise! #SeaDog #cruise #travel #chicago

We did their 75 Minute River and Lake Chicago Architecture Tour. Even though it was rainy we still had a great time. We were all shivering together.
