Earlier this year, I posted an article about going hands-on with the newest version of Step2's legendary Extreme Coaster. While the toy hasn't changed, it's color scheme has, and as a Step2 Brand Ambassador, my girls (and the rest of the neighborhood kids) have had a blast on their own personal "their-size" roller coaster (perfect, since we live in the shadows of Six Flags Great America) right here in our own backyard. While my initial post showed the Coaster in a very unconventional manner (indoors), now that it's warmer, the kids are absolutely loving this as it's outside in all of its glory. Would you like a Step2 Extreme Coaster for your own little rockers? We're giving you a chance to win one right now!

A few weeks into Spring and there's much to be considered. I've been thinking about baseball a lot (and writing about it on occasion), especially since we've been playing in the yard quite a bit (lots of "balls over the fence" to be retrieved). We've also begun some gardening activities - plotting the plan for the months ahead, while getting the post-winter clean-up all taken care of. There's also some "rocking" to take place, and with that comes a list of five important items when it comes to spring at Rock Father HQ. You could call them "The Indisposable" items of spring...

Netflix #StreamTeamWhen I did my January column as a member of the NETFLIX #StreamTeam, I mentioned how excited the girls were for the NETFLIX Original, EVER AFTER HIGH: SPRING UNSPRUNG. The latest special to be based upon Mattel's wildly-successful fashion dolls, SPRING UNSPRUNG is a seasonally-appropriate mini-movie, and one well-worth a watch with the true start of Spring just days ahead. We recently caught-up on all-things EAH with a couple of the new dolls, and a viewing of SPRING UNSPRUNG, all tied-together in a fancy little weekday party here at Rock Father HQ. Are you a Royal or a Rebel? That tends to be the question, and my girls were quick to choose their sides...
