Punderdome, The Card Game

th80LSY5HI

Looking for a new game to play at your next social gathering?  Look no further!  Punderdome, the card game is an easy to teach, easy to learn, and easy to play game for anyone over twelve.  All you need to play is the little box that contains everything, and three or more people.  You also need to prepare yourself to laugh and have a good time.

Inside the box are 200 different play cards with words or phrases.  Simply pick two cards, create a pun, and whoever creates the most terrible pun wins!  For example, draw “religion” and “fighting” and you can say “All Catholics do is argue with each other.”  The more people play the more fun it is.  I like how small the game itself is.  It’s great to throw in your bag for travel and parties.

God Bless America

9780735289741As this Fourth of July holiday weekend approaches it is only fitting I review a patriotic book.  God Bless America, A Patriotic Coloring Book, is a great book to slow down, relax, and express creativity as you color your way through history.

Each coloring page has a story to go along with it.  For example, a page with an army jet fighter & parachute people, also has the Pledge of Allegiance and the history behind the Pledge of Allegiance.  Some of the pages includes quotes from past presidents and influential leaders of our history.  I really like how thick each page is, so I can use many forms of color including marker to express my creativity.  This coloring book would be great for history buffs or anyone looking to relax and learn a little bit about our country.

The Wilderness Resort

The Wilderness Resort in the Wisconsin Dells is by far the greatest place to stay in the Midwest.  It has every amenity you can ever imagine from indoor and outdoor waterparks, to video arcades, to on site restaurants.  You never have to leave the resort.  They even have free shuttle service that will bring you anywhere on the resort.

We stayed at the Wilderness Resort with my entire family; all 18 of us.  We slept in one of their many cabins, the 5 Bedroom Retreat.  It fit all of us perfectly with room to spare!  We had people of all ages from under a year to 70 years old, and everyone felt comfortable.  Each family had their own bathroom, and the kitchen provided amble space for our meals.  We even enjoyed some pizza out on the oversized deck.  The cabin provided enough tables and chairs so everyone had a seat and could eat leisurely.

When we were not in our cabin we frequented one of the four indoor waterparks.  My kids really enjoyed Klondike Kavern, which has a very relaxing lazy river.  It takes you throughout the entire indoor waterpark so you’re able to check out which slides, pools, and water play areas you want to try out next.

We also utilized the Wild Fun Pass during our trip… which at a cost of $24.95 gave us a valued savings on some of the most popular attractions at the resort. It Includes admission to two 3D mini golf courses, bumper boats, the resort’s amazing two-story laser tag arena , a fun laser maze, an indoor ropes course with over 40 challenges, indoor go-karts and more!  We sure stayed busy during our visit.

We had the time of our lives at the Wilderness Resort in the Wisconsin Dells.  We were sad to leave, but look forward to planning another trip in the very near future.  We want to check out the outdoor waterparks next! I would highly recommend the Wilderness Resort to couples, families, and people of all ages who just want to have a great time with everything in one spot.  We most definitely will be back!

The Field Guide to Sports Metaphors

The Field Guide to Sports Metaphors was a very fun book to read and it came at the perfect time.  We are building a new house and we are huge sports fans in our family.  After I read the whole book I chose my favorite metaphors from the book (which I highlighted as I read) from each sport.

My wife is then going to put them on her cricket machine and make wall stickems’ and put all the fun sport metaphors in our children’s sports themed rooms.  Another thing that I loved about the book is that it had some really interested information about sports that I had never known.  There were a lot of metaphors that I never knew what they meant.  All in all I thought it was great read and a lot of fun.  This will definitely be a book that I got back and read pieces here and there.

The Rooftop Growing Guide

I found this book extremely helpful especially if your not a master gardener.  For me this was kind of my first vegetable garden I ever really built from scratch.

This book helped my to pick out the exact kind of garden that would work for my situation.  Then it explained in detail, how to build and plant and take care of the garden.  This was nice for me since I’m kind of a beginner so it pretty much covered everything.  Also the construction part of the garden you don’t have to be a union carpenter to be able to build either.  Overall this was a really good book and it has things that I can even try in the future for when I get the hand of it, so it’s not only good for beginners like me but people who have been gardening forever.  Great book!
