Family Date in Salt Lake with Nick Jr.

I was compensated for attending this event sponsored by Nick Jr. and Mom.me. The thoughts and opinions below are my own. 

Spending the day together as a family doesn't happen as often as I would like so when it does we try and make the most of it. The other day we were excited to attend a party hosted by Nick Jr and Mom.me. Nick Jr. was showcasing two shows, Blaze and The Monster Machine and Shimmer and Shine. Our girls obviously were in heaven with all of the toys to play with but also the interactive crafts, princess crowns, coloring and race cars. I asked Olivia what her favorite part of the day was and she said without hesitation "I LOVED making the sand jars and so happy to see the new dolls." We don't have a lot of cars in our toy box but they can't get enough of the race car from Blaze.

Our girls were all about the Shimmer and Shine dolls and still to this day we will find one either in the car, our play room or even in the crib for nap time. And Dad isn't complaining about having some trucks and cars in the house. Maybe one day we will have a little boy to for daddy to play with! (wink wink)

These toys give a great introduction to STEM concepts as they encouraging children to apply critical thinking skills and explore science. As a mom I love having our girls play with interacting toys rather than other options to keep their minds creative and engaging. We are excited to play and explore with these toys for days and weeks to come!!!

Chicken Lime Tacos

Hands down best chicken lime we've ever had!!! We mostly love this recipe because we can use it for a couple different recipes.  We have served it over rice but our absolute favorite is tacos!!!  Mostly as a busy mom I like simple and yummy dinners that my family thinks I've worked so hard all day over. Tricks on them!  So here is what you need:

5 Chicken breasts (I use frozen chicken)
1/2 bottle of Zesty Lime Dressing
Salsa Verde Green Sauce
1 can of Diced JalapeƱos
1 can of Diced Chilis
2 limes

I add all of these items in the crockpot with the chicken and cook baby cook!!!  I cook on low for 6-8 hrs or high for 4 hrs. Then we top with tacos with rice, cilantro, and lime.  Honestly I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do.
