High flying fun at the Atlantic City Air Show

One hot Summer day - June 26, I headed to Atlantic City, New Jersey, to see the famous Air Show.  I was able to park right next to the boardwalk in a garage since I had a media pass. (Blogging has great perks)  The city gets full of people and cars and parking is at a premium.

It was a  hot day, but their was excitement in the air-and in the sky.  We made our way down to the beach where Chalets were set up for ticket holders and media pass holders.

I've been going to Atlantic City since I was in elementary school and I love to go back and visit. It has changed a lot, but it's also kept some of the old charm I remember-like convention center.

At the air show you will be wowed and thrilled with the planes flying above your head. It is pretty awesome. This year's show had a little less military planes, but the show was just as good.

What a beautiful blue sky day for the Atlantic City Air Show 2013!

Along with the air show comes a boardwalk full of vendors, giveaways, music, games and food. I picked up a few goodies on a quick pass through I did on the boardwalk.

If you plan to go to the Atlantic City Air show next year or in the future here are a few tips I learned along the way:

wear sunscreen
wear a hat
bring plenty of H20 and drink it
bring cash to buy food or souvenirs if you want
bring a tote bag if you want to visit the vendors and pick up freebies
wear light colored clothing or your bathing suit
Both times I went to the air show the Sun was high in the sky, and it was HOT. Sunny, but very hot.
The sand is very hot.
Relax, take your time and get there early, especially if you want to set up a spot on the beach.
Parts of the beach are closed and you need a ticket or media pass to get on the beach. No exceptions to this.
Consider spending the night in town before the show and after the show.
The outlets are in walking distance to the show, we visited them to cool off a bit after the show.

The dates are not set yet, but you can visit the web site  to see the schedule and line up of performers from this year:  You'll also find the date for next Summer's air show as soon as it is available.  Happy flying!
Disclosure: I was given a media pass and parking to attend this event. The comments and views are my own.

Giveaway of New Soft Scrub® 4-in-1 Toliet Cleaner to three lucky winners.

  Let's talk about cleaning toilets. Hmm, I'd rather not talk about that, or clean them. However, I don't want dirty toilets in our house, so I have to clean all three of them. I'd clean four or five because I really would like two downstairs bathrooms in my next house. We have one powder room on the first floor and two full baths upstairs.I'd like three full baths upstairs. Why in the world would I want to clean all that? Who knows, but having a product that can help out cleaning the three we currently have in my house is greatly appreciated. Soft Scrub ®  is honestly amazing me with their new and improved products. I've learned about them in the past few months from trying them out and writing reviews.

Win an Ultimate prize pack from Betty Crocker Ultimate Meals and Mixes

So, how's the dinner time prep going? The kids are back in school, and  then after school is sports, band practice. Do you have the taxi light on top your car on? Sound familiar? I can relate. Those nights of soccer practice and games kept us moving. I am the late afternoon here on the East Coast, and glad to have my dinner thoughts together. How did I do it? The ultimate way, with new Ultimate Hamburger Helper from Betty Crocker ®, that's how. I whipped up, I'm calling it that, because it was easy to prepare and cook. I made Ultimate Hamburger Helper Three Cheese Marinara.

Giveaway of Three Copies of Les Misérables on Blu Ray DVD combo Pack

You know that part of a DVD that prompts you to select play, scenes, bonus, set up while bits of the movie play? I did not get past that for several plays through the song "Do you hear the people sing" with  people of France waving their flag, and singing about they will not be slaves again.  The song is so moving, so powerful. It can stir up your the strength within your soul, it can remind you of the freedom of being an American, and it can bring you to tears of sadness, happiness, and joy. Now on to select play: I saw Les Misérables at the preview screening last year and was captivated, motionless in my seat. The DVD has the same effect. You'll be taken back to another place, another time. The cast is perfect, the singing is moving, and the scenery is real old world "Paris". As I watched Les Misérables it's a reminder to myself, a wake up call for us all to be humble, be better. To forgive each other, let go of our egos, help each other at times of need,
