Things to Know Before You Go:

  • Check, recheck and triple check the dates and times to make sure they are still correct when the egg hunt gets closer.  As I always say, this information comes from word of mouth, press releases and flyers I see around town.  The information is not always correct and I am human and make mistakes sometimes (although I try not to do it very often!).  Follow the link and be sure to contact the number available to confirm the time.
  • Bring a basket or bag of your own.
  • Arrive early.  A friend of mine went to a hunt two years ago at the John R. Jones park.  The egg hunt was over in less than 3 minutes.  There were hundreds (probably thousands) of eggs picked up and her two children got a whopping 3 eggs between the two of them.  They were young and were just thrilled with the excitement of it all so luckily they weren’t disappointed.  However, if they had arrived 30 seconds later we would have missed the whole thing.
  • Just in case your little one doesn’t get too many eggs:  Hide a couple of prefilled eggs in your car before you go.  Now that my son is a year older, I foresee some serious disappointment if he only gets one egg.  I would throw a couple in the car and have them hunt for them when we were all finished.  Of course, in my car every day is an egg hunt except you never know what you might find!  HA!

Do you know of any other egg hunts that the community is invited to?  If so, message our Facebook page if you have any other events you would like us to add.  Any names or numbers not in an official capacity will be deleted for safety reasons.

A Trip to the Pensacola Dog Fancier’s Agility Trials!

We took the little ones to visit the Pensacola Dog Fancier’s Agility Trials today.  They were held at the Equestrian Center on Mobile Highway.   Since both of our kids are smaller (ages 4, two 2 1/2 year olds), dogs are a little frightening for them.  Once they get up the courage to pet the dogs, they are fine, but we thought introducing them to this format for the pups would be a good experience for them.

In the Agility Trials there are two categories, Master (very experienced)  and Novice (just starting out).  The kids loved watching the dogs of all sizes run through the agility course.  They were amazed at the talent of the dogs and how they were stopping and running, jumping over and through hoops.   Not that they were actually saying that, you could just see it on their faces!    The dogs are very well trained and it is exciting to see them compete.

But, what we found (as we were leaving) that was the most exciting part of the day was getting the kiddos to actually pet some of the pups.  A few of the handlers had their dogs walking around and took a few minutes to show them to our kids.   They were a little scared at first, but the handlers took their time to show the three littles how to give them a treat and pet them without scaring the animals.  One of the dogs, the black on in the pictures below, is actually 13 years old!  She used to run the agility trials and compete, but now that she has “retired”, she is a fantastic helper to the veterans with pscyhiatric issues as well as teens with mental disabilities.

But, all in all, if your children are wanting a dog, or you are contemplate getting a dog for them, this is a great way to see some different breeds.   This experience also lets the kids see this type of hobby that can be done with their pets and obedience, training and responsibility that comes with owning a dog.  But for us, the most important part was actually letting the littles pet the dogs and learn how to NOT be scared.

The Pensacola Dog Fancier’s Agility Trials will still be happening tomorrow from 7 AM – 6 PM at the Escambia County Equestrian Center at 7750 Mobile Highway (in Beulah).

Black Friday Shopping Tips

Do you love to head out for Black Friday shopping?  Do you order online instead?  Do you avoid it completely?  Last week, I asked this same question on our Facebook page and my friend Elizabeth, a seasoned and dedicated Black Friday shopper (she was even featured in the Black Friday shopping article in the PNJ last year!), left some great tips.  I thought it would be fun to share those tips with you!  Thanks for the great tips, Elizabeth!

  • Plan ahead time.  Map out the route you want to take, the stores you are going to visit, list the items that you want to purchase, compare prices, etc. all before you head out to the store
  • Bring a friend if possible.  Sometimes it’s easier to plant a friend or spouse in the checkout line and then you can run and grab items.  Those checkout lines can be looooooooong almost instantly! This is also great for those “campout” situations if you need to use the restroom, etc.
  • Wear comfortable shoes
  • Have a list.  Break your list down by store, with opening times, items, whether your items are door buster (time frame items) and take the corresponding list into each store with you along WITH THE AD!!!  This way if you need to reference or have an associate help you find an item, you are prepared with the exact item name and sometimes even stock number for some store ads
  • Stay happy!  It’s NOT the end of the world if someone grabs the last “hottest toy” at the hottest discount – your kids or spouse or grandma will live without it.  It’s not worth ruining the fun and experience over getting into an altercation
  • Always plan a post shopping meal 🙂 My husband and I shop together.  The kids spend Thursday night with my parents so after we finish shopping (usually by 11am) we drop everything off at home and hide it.  Then we take some time for each other and have a nice quiet lunch together without the distractions of the kids AND celebrate all our great buys 🙂
  • Keep an envelope or ziploc bag with all your receipts and go over them to make sure you got the right price etc.  Keep these in case there is an issue with an item later (i.e. it doesn’t work on Christmas morning or like in one instance we had on a Leapster we bought – we didn’t realize it had already been opened and put back into the box without the extras that were to be in the package!!!)
  • DO NOT GET CAUGHT UP in the frenzy.  Set a budget and stick to it!  NO IMPULSE PURCHASES (or at least LIMIT them — your checkbook will thank you)!!

Thanks again for the tips, Elizabeth!

Email us Your Thanksgiving Craft Photos and Contest!

This next week’s Learning Time is going to be all about Thanksgiving and turkey crafts.  Email us a picture of your Thanksgiving/Fall craft, drawing, or project and you just might find it on the site!  It can be any turkey day craft…it doesn’t have to be one that was made from directions we share next week.

In your email include a statement that gives me permission to post the photo on the Pensacola with Kids website.  If your child is pictured, please include a statement giving me permission to post the photo of your child.  I will only use initials when captioning the picture. 

Everyone who sends a picture of their craft in will be entered into a drawing to win a $5 Chik-fil-A gift card.  Photos must be emailed to me at jennifer (at) pensacolawithkids (dot) com by Thursday, November 25th at 7pm.  The random drawing will be done on Friday and the winner will be announced on Friday or Saturday.

Happy crafting!
