Gulf Breeze FunPlex Winners!

Thanks so much for participating in the Gulf Breeze FunPlex Giveaway! The randomly selected winners, chosen via random number generator, were Elizabeth (Comment #9):

“Our favorite rainy day activity is staying in our Pj’s and making something FUN for lunch and then watching movies and doing coloring or other “art”stuff… maybe even getting crazy and busting out the playdough.  Or of course we love putting on play clothes and PLAYING IN the rain too!”

and (Comment #4) Faith, who said:

“My favorite rainy day activity with my 2-yr old son, is hide and seek. Of course that only lasts for so long, then we’ll put on our raincoats and rainboots and head outside! Rainstorms are one of the things I missed when I moved away from Florida. I always get the best sleep during a great Thunderstorm!”

Congratulations Elizabeth and Faith!  Email me your contact information as soon as you can and I will get your Open Gym Gift Certificates to you!

Thanks so much to the Gulf Breeze FunPlex for your generous donation!

This morning we headed to the Sweet Seasons Farm Corn Maze!  Watch for pictures and information coming soon!

Pensacola With Kids Disclosure Policy

If you spend a lot of time reading blogs and reviews on the Internet, you will note that there has been a lot of talk about website disclosure policies over the past few months.  The FTC is starting to get involved and there are new laws and rules that are coming about.  You can find our disclosure policy on the About page.  Our disclosure policy on reviews and free items has always been the following:

Review Policy

To insure that my reviews and opinions are valued, I will only recommend products that I think are relevant and useful to moms and dads in our area.  Accepting a product or service does not guarantee a review.  If I receive free tickets to an event or activity, I will always note that in the individual post.

If we receive free admission to an activity or event, it will be stated in a disclosure notice in an individual article.  Unless stated in the article about the activity or event, my family has paid for all activities and events from our own wallet.  When we try a product or service, 99% of the time the business does not know that we maintain this website until after our visit is complete.  This insures that you know that it is true reflection of the experience that we had.  

All giveaways are graciously donated by local businesses.  If a giveaway is offered for this site, it will be chosen if it is something that I would endorse in my every day life anyway-with or without the Pensacola with Kids website.  My reviews are honest and, frankly, if I don’t like a product or service I will usually skip reviewing/giving it away on the site altogether.  All giveaways are given away!  I am not paid or given anything with an expectation of a good review or to do a giveaway.  In conjuction with giveaways, I might pass on information that will allow the readers to get a certain percentage off the product or service that I am giving away.  All contact about said product or service after the information is passed will occur between you and the business.  I am not involved in any way other than the passer of information.

As always, if you have any questions please feel free to email me at jennifer (at) pensacolawithkids (dot) com or use the Contact Form link.

Chh-chh-chh-Changes!

You might notice a new tab at the top of the page!  That is our new Calendar of Events. 

calendarpic

Like I said a few weeks ago, the website it going to be undergoing some changes over the next few months.  Please bear with us as we try to make this the best site that it can be!  If you click on Calendar, you will find a monthly calendar where we will be constantly adding events.  When you highlight an event on the calendar, a little box should show up with some information about the event.  If you click on the event, it will take you to the website of the event.  For example, if you click on Barnes and Noble Storytime, the link will take you to the Pensacola Barnes and Noble store.  Be sure to always follow the link to get more information and assure that the event is still going on, times and dates are still correct, etc.

If you know of an upcoming event during the next few months or a correction to an event we have posted, please feel free to email me at jennifer (at) pensacolawithkids (dot) com or via the Contact Form.  Pensacola with Kids is becoming such an awesome resource because of all the great readers out there sharing new activities that we might not have heard of yet!

October Activities in Pensacola?

There are many changes coming to the Pensacola with Kids website in the next few weeks.  All for the better of course!  Changes will include more features, a new look, and more activities of course!  One of the changes that we are implementing started this month.  At the beginning of September, we posted an article titled September Activities in Pensacola.  Our goal is to eventually have a calendar on the site that allows you to find activities in Pensacola by clicking on a certain date.  For now, at the beginning of each month, we will post a list of activities happening around Pensacola with links to the information.  

If you have heard of an upcoming activity in October, please submit it by emailing me at jennifer (at) pensacolawithkids (dot) com or send me a message through the Contact Form.

Mary Kay Giveaway Winner!

Thanks for participating in the Mary Kay gift certificate and facial giveaway!  The randomly selected winner, chosen via random number generator, was (Comment #6) Leona who said:

“I could really use a facial! I just had my 5th child last year after a 13 year break, so many kid products have changed, but I think my favorite product is the good old swing. Baby had lots of reflux problems, so that was the only safe place for him to sleep. My favorite me product is concealer right now-blotchy face from pregnancy.”
