    • I can indeed verify that he was super delighted with the camp & all he learned…He loved his coaches & delighted in trying to imitate their accents…he cracks me up (but then I am his gramma) so he does that quite often….
      I can also say that the other children also enjoyed their time at the camp, I always arrived early to watch him & saw that all the children were really enjoying it also…
      I think it’s a great learning experience & just a good time in general…

    • When I bought the lamp for Sean Eddie, I didn’t realize that it had all these wonderful benefits. I bought it because it was beautiful & different. I had first seen this type of lamp on HGTV & was wowed by them.
      I’m thrilled that it is also a way of keeping the air clean, if I knew that I would have bought one for each of my grandchildren…
      I love that when he opened his gift, his face lit up & that was all I needed, but I’m so glad it does so much more…

    • It sounds like a wonderful evening. I’ve always been an advocate of alone time & a great start is dinner out. You get to relax & talk while others do the “getting”, so what could be better. Well that would be good food & after talking to you I know you got that..sounds like a great experience was had..
      Mother, daughter alone time would be good also (just saying) & I would love to go to Applebees….

So, it doesn’t matter if it took you days or minutes to get just the “right” one… I had one of each & I must say it was much easier raising your brother then you. but you both turned out to be fantastic, caring human beings & I couldn’t be more pleased..Love you both very much & I will say enjoy, because you are so right, time does fly by sooooooooooo quickly & they grow up much to quickly…

    • I really enjoyed the tasting, everything was quite yummy. everything was served hot & I found the staff very pleasant. I wish that I could say that I tasted the kids meals, but my grandchildren finished it before I could say pass it over. I too did like that the kids meals came with veggies instead of fries.

      I would recommend Noodles & Co to everyone, it is a family friendly resturant with good food at a resonable prices..

    • Not only was the food stupendous but the whole presentation was top flight. From the moment we walked in the door my son wasn’t very keen on trying new stuff, but before long he was trying a bit of everything. He made fast work of it all. I can only assume he’s in the midst of a growth spurt what with the shear volume he put away.

    • To be honest, there aren’t too many things that I want or need. That said, being on a “fixed” income, I do like to save $$$. I do give lots of gifts & this does seem to be a way of giving and saving…I have just installed it on my IPhone, so I’ll see what goodies I can get…
      It’s definetly worth a try. I knew you saved $$ on his mariral arts class, but didn’t relize just how much….according to the description on the app store page “Groupon has long been the go-to for finding local deals, and with good reason- it’s got absolutely huge selection of discounts on resturants, services, travel etc”….CHECK IT OUT for yourselves
