I was watching the Today Show Wednesday and one of the topics of conversation was the K-Mart Holiday Ad that just aired. Apparently it first ran earlier this week, a full 106 days before Christmas! Despite the supposedly premature timing of the ad, it did one thing right: it made me start thinking about what my family will be doing this holiday season.
Now that summer is halfway over, my kids have officially entered the “I’m bored” phase. It’s that phase kids go through when the euphoria of newly found freedom from school has waned and the panic that school is fast approaching has yet to set in. I decided to find out what’s going on over the next week that’s a little different to force the kids out of their rut and entertain the whole family. Here’s what I found…
There is no question about it – Sundial will be the place to be this July 4th weekend. I just spied their Holiday Weekend Calendar on the website and it is jam packed with all kinds of activities.
It’s Sanibel Summerfest time at Sundial Beach Resort & Spa and to help celebrate the season, Sundial has recruited local favorite Danny Morgan and his band to provide live entertainment every Friday, launched TWO new Happy Hours back to back and just announced a contest where you can win a free weekend for two at the resort!
June 21st may technically be the first day of season but everyone knows summer really begins Memorial Day weekend! With the big weekend just a few days away, I’ve been busy making plans for the family.
If you’re looking for something to do this Saturday, or any Saturday over the summer, head over to Sundial and give the BBQ Blowout a try! Barbeques and cookouts are summer afternoon staples. This year, at Sundial Beach Resort & Spa, the staple came early with the introduction of weekly BBQ Blowouts. My family and I have spent more than one Saturday piling our plates and playing the afternoon away.
The big weekend is still ahead of us, though, and we’re definitely planning on ending spring break on a high note. This weekend is going to be crazy! Our family is hitting TWO Easter Egg Hunts, BOTH BBQ Blowouts at Sundial and taking a little time at the Children’s Spring Festival! When I saw how much food was involved in all of this I decided I needed to find a few creative ways to burn calories on the move. Here are some Easter holiday ways to work off those chocolate bunnies!
Hey everyone! Great news – I just got an updated copy of Sundial’s March Children’s Activity Calendar. There are a ton of different crafts, competitions, games and other goings-on to take part in every day. For example, if your kids are into animals they won’t want to miss Feeding Frenzy where they can take part in the daily feeding of the creatures in the Eco Center. Of course, beach volleyball is always a hit with kids and those of us who are just kids at heart. I’m sure you’ll find plenty of fun to pick and choose from on this month’s calendar!
So now that you know a little about me, and my history, I want to tell you more about the island that is Sanibel! Sanibel officially became a city in 1974, which wouldn’t be that interesting for most people but… at that time. an organization called the Sanibel Captiva Conservation Foundation formed and became the driving force behind what Sanibel Island and Captiva Island are today.
