Nuby Sea Scooper – Bath Toy Scooper

As mentioned in our last Bathing Beauty post – we are so beyond excited about being selected as an official Nuby Parent Blogger and will be partnering with the Nuby USA team to share some of our current favorite baby products as well as introduce you to some newer products of theirs! When we received the Nuby Sea Scooper Bath Toy Scooper in the mail today, Huntley got so excited and wanted me to the open the box right away! As soon as I took it out she knew just what to do with it – she took it to the bathroom and put it into the bathtub (it’s quite possibly her favorite spot in the house).

I always knew we needed some bath organization for all the growing number of bath toys Huntley’s collected this past year and with another on the way I knew the bath clutter would just get worse in there! So you can understand why I got excited about this new product of ours!

Installation was a cinch! The wall hook is held on by some powerful 3M adhesive strips and I’m always weary about adhesive strips not staying on well in areas that may get wet. However, we immediately filled the scooper with all Huntley’s favorite bath toys (those including the Octopus you see in our previous bath post) and put it on the wall hook to make sure it held on – and it sure did!

If you have a water baby like mine, bath time is one of the best times of day! And like I’ve mentioned, bath time is sometimes more than once a day for us. Huntley is the happiest when she’s in water and even happier when she has lots of fun interactive toys to play with in the water. Even though the scooper isn’t necessarily a bath “toy” per say, Huntley loved the idea of a big toy that can pick up all her little toys at the end of bath time. She even loved the adorable whale design and tried lathering up her new buddy with soap and bubbles as well!

She is a pro-bather (professional bather) if that were an occupation! What I mean by this is she knows how to lather her own soap in her hands, on her belly and in her hair – she evens tries to wash mama and dada! So it’s no surprise she would also know how to communicate to us when she’s ‘done’ with bath time. First step is to pull up the drain lift with second step being stand at the edge of the tub and wait for mama or dada to lift her out of the tub. With our new bath toy scooper, I knew immediately that Huntley would love to learn another step to add into the mix of things (a step that would help her parents out a bit too) and that is to scoop up all her toys before draining the tub. We turned it into a game and she knew right away what to do with the whale-shaped scooper and this game was a hit as she thought it was so much fun! Hopefully this step will continue to be a part of her routine!

Sunday Brunch & The Aquarium of the Pacific

This morning we decided to take advantage of the sunny day and spent time at the Long Beach Shoreline Marina and Aquarium of the Pacific. We recently received this shirt from Moozega‘s new line, one of the awesome shops we are so lucky to be a brand rep for on Instagram and such. If you’ve never heard of them, you really must check them out! The shirts are all printed on American Apparel fine jersey cotton knit material and the print quality is just superior! The ink doesn’t fade in the wash and the designs are gender neutral and wonderfully unique! These are by far some of our favorite printed tees we own and this elephant one was requested by Tanner and I because we just love elephants! As you can see, we tend to put Huntley is shirts sized a bit bigger than her actual size, due to her Winnie the Pooh-like belly!

RANDOM, but here are some reasons why we love elephants! Did you know that elephants are pack animals that usually stay herds with their families.  They are also known to be extremely intelligent and form very strong emotional bonds! An elephant’s memory is truly impeccable as he can actually remember an elephant he’s met hundreds of years ago if he ran into him again. Also, elephants will usually bury a fellow elephant that has died, even if they didn’t know that elephant! But enough about elephants, here’s a flood of photos from today’s outing!

Since it was Sunday and a perfect one at that, we knew the aquarium would somewhat be packed and decided to just hit up a few parts that we already knew were Huntley’s favorites such as the seals/sea-lions tunnel, the penguins, and the Baja California exhibit.

Afterwards, we headed home and took a much needed family nap! Luckily when we woke from our naps the weather was still warm and the sun was still shining bright so we decided to let Huntley play in the backyard for a bit with water tables and play set.

All in all it was a great Sunday spent! How was your weekend spent?

Mammoth Fun – Our Valentine’s Day Weekend

As you know this past weekend was Valentine’s weekend and we spent ours with good friends and family. Since we all have babes under two, we decided to do Valentine’s weekend on the slopes of our favorite home away from home Mammoth Mountain where my brother-in-law and sister have a large spacious cabin/condo perfect for three families! Breakfasts were had in-home (bacon and eggs with toast, etc.) and lunches and dinners were enjoyed outside with the cooler weather and beautiful sceneries! Although I didn’t get to snowboard, yet another season of being pregnant, however I did get to enjoy breath-taking views! Also, having three beautiful little girls running around with laughter and joy in their hearts wasn’t too bad either. I just wish I could say that Huntley loved the snow as much as she loved the ocean, but I’d be lying if I did.

Hope you all had a Happy Valentine’s weekend as well!
