Fun Galaxy – Family Fun day & Entertainment

Fun Galaxy – Family Fun day & Entertainment

Took me a minute but I finally made my way up Bernard Road and hit up the newest Family Entertainment spot FUN GALAXY.

What is Fun Galaxy you may ask? It’s an indoor amusement park that has a combination of rides, games and party rooms.

I knew Fun Galaxy had been open for a few months but I still wasn’t quite sure what to expect. Equipped with six rides in total including the Family Favorite “Bumper Cars”. It’s easy to see why this can quickly become the newest hang out.

I know what you are thinking, only six rides…Yea initially I thought well that’s pretty lame but then when I really got into it (and my pocket) it was not so bad after all. Have you ever been to Disney World and walked the theme park? It is exhausting going from ride to ride, line to line trying to cram it all in about 48 hours or less to get the most of your experience. Fun Galaxy was the perfect Sunday adventure with not too much rides, not too much lines and best of all not too much money and just enough family fun.

One of the best things I liked about Fun Galaxy was that there was no cover charge to enter. You simply just pay for your rides and/or games , food and get ready to have fun. For $15 your child is able to ride all of the rides one time or spend $2.50 per ride with the exception of the bumpers which was $3 per ride.  I choose the $15 option, seemed reasonable enough.

There are food and drinks on sale which were pretty standard as well.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Not sure if this was the standard or not but parents we’re allowed to accompany younger kids on rides without having to pay for two tickets. This was a bonus for me! I also liked the fact that all rides were made for kids of all ages. Meaning I didn’t have to worry about my 2 year old being left out while my 6 year old had all the fun. They were able to ride all the rides together if needed (well maybe not the Pirate Ship but yea you get the idea…)

Fun Galaxy is open 7 days a week but I would check before going to confirm opening hours. Overall,  for the smiles on my daughters face this place is worth the tokens and more!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My $10 Boat Excursion

My $10 Boat Excursion

I am always on the look out for fun and affordable family entertainment, so when I stumbled upon this new excursion I immediately added it on my summer to do list.

Total Package Water Sports Cruise has an awesome summer feature called  Family Sunday Sail Away. Every Sunday from June 4th to August 27th you and your family can enjoy a beach day at Rose Island packed with games, prizes and surprises.

For only $10, anyone above the age of two (age two and under is free) can enjoy a boat ride from Prince George Wharf to Rose Island. No food and drinks are allowed on board and believe me they do search your bags before you enter but no worries on board there are food and drinks on sale. Most meals run for about $6 max and the menu comprised of items such as fritters, hotdog and hamburgers, mixed drinks, waters and sodas.

Enjoy the hour ride by taking in the views of the harbor and a brief stop for fish feeding before docking on Rose Island.

Once on Rose Island do as you please but be sure to not get left behind! The ride back is filled with Family Oriented Games and prizes by the friendly crew to help keep the kids entertained.

No need to purchase tickets in advance or make reservations. Simply just show up and the rest is up you.

A Slice of Little Caesar

A Slice of Little Caesar

What started out as a routine Saturday filled with paying bills and grocery shopping turned into a slice of fun. I am still not sure if it was a grand opening but Little Caesars sure turned up. This stop wasn’t planned at all, in fact I had no idea they were even open.

The popular pizza brand Little Caesar has made its way to the sunny isle of the Bahamas, Nassau to be specific. Tucked  away  just between The Nassau Guardian and Xtra Value food store you’ll find Hot – N – Ready pizzas starting at only $7!

Ok first things first, the food. I know you want to know about the food! Despite the slogan, no pizza was ready upon my arrival. But, if this was indeed a Grand Opening I will give these guys the benefit of the doubt, they must have been slammed with customers and I completely understood. The attendant was more than pleasant and promised me a Hot – N – Ready pepperoni pizza in 10-15 minutes or less.

The time was easily spent. Unbeknownst to me a mini fair was going on right outside that was hidden away from the street entrance. This distraction would more than help me to kill time (clever, clever Little Caesar’s).

Equipped with balloon animals, bounce house, popcorn, snow cones, party bags and yes the Little Caesar Mascot, my kids were more than entertained. At one point I was so engaged we almost forgot about the pizza, ALMOST.

So, how was it? Well worth all the freebies I got and then some. Oh, yea I forgot to mention all those items above were free!

The pizza was eight slices of cheesy pepperoni  goodness. I know what you’re saying, oh gosh another pizza franchise. But the pizza is ready, you know almost like drive thru but you walk in and supposedly walk right back out, so no wait time, plus did I mention it tasted great?

Most grand openings are a huge mess. You know long lines, uneducated staff, sometimes even burnt food but Little Caesars gets my $7, but then again I am still not sure it was a grand opening.

Have you tried it yet? Whats your favorite pizza?

Till next…

The Birds and The Bees

The Birds and The Bees

How many of us have had the “talk” with our parents? You know, the “where do babies come from” kind of talk. Let’s be real, its almost considered taboo to talk about sex let alone with your own kids. That’s like blasphemy!

To be honest my parents never talked to me about sex. I was just expected to get good grades and not get pregnant before I finished high school. Simple as that.

Maybe our parents thought if they prayed hard enough then Susie wouldn’t come home with a baby…maybe.

Truth is kids are having sex, I mean some have more mileage than you and I but we aren’t going to venture there. The reality is that they need to be educated not only on how to prevent pregnancy and STD’s but also on how to have standards and morals.

Why are we so afraid of this talk is beyond me. If we don’t teach them someone else will.

When should you talk about sex?

The sooner the better! My then five year old came home one weekend and educated me about the topic. Naturally I was mortified. I hadn’t talked to her about it thinking she was too young and there she went and got her own tutorial. Her six year old cousin politely gave her an earful granted I am sure the information was inaccurate.

When should we stop talking about it?

Never. OK I am exaggerating a bit. Our babies can’t stay babies forever. But there are a lot of babies having babies. It’s like some parents have let their guard down and are simply satisfied with finishing school. Not judging, I get it. No really I do. They are grown, they are working and you are just happy to not be buying uniform anymore let alone lecturing them on their sex life.

Why should you talk to your kids about sex?

Why not? Its time to not be embarrassed about SEX. Let’s be honest about abstinence and even birth control. What they learn elsewhere may not be true, the TV lies, the internet lies, their friends are lying! Talking to them about sex helps them to develop healthy attitudes and responsible sexual behavior. It can even help to develop healthy emotional and physical relationships when they enter these dinky boyfriend/girlfriend situations they be so trip over.

We have to start talking about. We have to stop being afraid and sweeping things under the rug. I mean for a country where sweethearting is such a big thing you’d think we’d talk about sex more!

A little bit of research on find age appropriate ways to talk about sex in your house hold can go a long way.

So why how about it? Let’s talk about SEX!

Till next time..
