Imagination Movers: In A Big Warehouse Tour

My boys love music.  Once school is over and they are done with all of their work, they love to listen to music.  I am pretty picky about what they listen to.  There is no top 40's playing in our house.  If it isn't classical or christian music, the music needs to be uplifting.  And, fun, of course. 

A new favorite in our house is the Imagination Movers. We were first introduced to them while on vacation thanks to the Disney Channel.  Their show, also named Imagination Movers is a fun show where there is usually a problem to solve and the Imagination Movers work together to come up with a solution.  The show is often goofy and highly entertaining. Each episode also contains music that the group performs. It is one of the rare shows that the boys laugh all the way through.

So, when I was contacted to share the great news about their concert tour, I was more than willing.  A few things I like about the group and their music:

- All four of the men are dads. Which means that they know what kids will like.  And, since they are dads, they also know what parents want to hear and want their children to hear.
-The songs are fun and get you moving. Which is a huge bonus when you have kids!
- The songs are positive.  The lyrics are positive and fun.
- Parents enjoy the music too.  Watch out, you will be singing the songs too!

Here is some more information from the Imagination Mover's Bio:
The Movers’ own story provides a good example of the power of imagination. In 2003, four New Orleans friends – Collins, Scott Durbin, Dave Poche and Scott “Smitty” Smith – started gathering after their kids’ bedtimes to write songs and brainstorm ideas about a children’s television show. Two years later, they had become the latest sensation of their musical city, attracting parents and children alike with an eclectic pop sensibility and lyrical turns about healthy snacks and playing catch and conquering childhood fears of bedtime. Lines to the Movers’ shows stretched down blocks.


When the levees broke after Hurricane Katrina, the far-reaching disaster turned the Movers’ world upside down, but it didn’t put an end to their dream. Even while band members salvaged their belongings from flooded homes – and Smith reported to his day job as a fire fighter and first responder – they never stopped living according to the Movers’ motto: “Reach high, think big, work hard, have fun!”

We have their newest CD, In A Big Warehouse.  Let's just say it has been playing in my house, everyday, since we received it.  I cannot speak for girls (since I do not have any), but this music is a favorite among my boys.  My boys' favorite song : The Sensible Life of a Pirate!  It is such a fun song that I am willing to put it on repeat for the boys.  Plus, it is so cute hearing my two year old say "Rrrrrrrr" with the song!  I would recommend it to anyone looking for a fun CD for their kids.
 
Here is one of their songs called "Brainstorming."
 

 
And, the Imagination Movers have just started their In A Big Warehouse Tour.  My boys cannot wait to head to Linser Auditorium at George Washington University to see this band of four in concert.  The tour will visit more than 50 cities, including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston and Washington, D.C. Tickets for all dates will go on sale November 12th via Ticketmaster with a special pre-sale for all dates beginning online at Ticketmaster.com November 9 at 10:00 a.m. There will be VIP packages for fans available in many cities. For details on the tour dates, VIP packages and venues visit http://www.imaginationmovers.com/.
This quote from "Mover Rich" captures the experience of the concert:
“Nothing beats the excitement of playing live rock n roll with the help of thousands of great fans,” says Rich Collins (aka Mover Rich). “We encourage our audience to be an essential part of the show by singing, clapping, shouting, dancing and generally letting the energy of a real rock concert lift their spirits. Everybody needs a nap after one of our gigs. Including the grownups – and especially us!”
I cannot wait to take my boys.  I hope you can join us! Go here to see if the Movers will be in your area.

Note: I was not paid for this review.  I was given a CD and two tickets to the Imagination Movers Concert for an honest review and promotion of the Imagination Movers concert tour.

The Gift (Our NFP story) Part 2

(You can read  Part 1 here

     So, by the time Andrew was 18 months old, we knew God was saying no to having more children at the time.  And, as mentioned before, He provided so much peace about it, that we knew we had discerned correctly.  Yet, even with that peace, I had to mourn the fact the we might not ever have any more children.  Yes, we were still open to life, of course, but from the time after Andrew’s birth, until today, we practiced NFP faithfully to avoid pregnancy.  And it took time to accept that we might not have any more children.  There were times when I would hold a friend’s new born baby and then go home and cry because I knew I might not ever know the joy of holding my own baby again.  We live in a community where life is celebrated and families are large.  Usually more than one friend is pregnant at a time.  In those early days, each pregnancy announcement was met with great joy for the friend, but often left me with an empty feeling.  I understood, in many way…

The Gift (Our NFP story) Part I

(I started writing this post months ago, but have not had time to refine it and finish it.  I have felt the need to hit "publish" lately though.  Maybe it is because Hope is too quickly approaching 12 months old and my desire to share it's sentiments would be lost soon. Or maybe it is because this week is the March for Life and the sacredness of life is before me in a precious little girl and I want to remember that, in words, here.  But whatever the reason, here is our story of seeking God's will and and being open to life.)

Shortlyafter we announced that we wereexpectingbaby Hope, I felt that I needed to share ourNFPstory.  Partially, it was because we had so many people say thingslike, "What a miracle!" or share stories of how people they knew were infertile, adopted and then had a baby of their own, thatI feltthat many people probably got the wrong idea about why we had three boys, waited a while and adopted and then found out we were expecting a baby wh…

Yonanas and a yummy protein chocolate peanut butter ice cream

I have to admit, I have a sweet tooth.  A big sweet tooth.  I blame it on genetics.  My dad loves sweets and I think my grandmother, his mother, subsisted only on foods that contained sugar.  But, when you are working on eating healthy and bringing the whole family along with you, things like ice cream, cookies and cakes have to replaced by something better.

So, when Lena from JOYfilled family posted about the Yonanas she got, I wanted to try it!  Yonanas makes "ice cream" from frozen bananas.  I have heard of making "ice cream" this way before and I have tried it in our blended, but it usually came out quite liquidy.  So, when we got a gift card for Amazon, I knew exactly what I wanted to buy.

I have used the Yonanas several times and I love it!!  The consistency of the "ice cream" is very smooth, light and creamy.  My 4 year old, who is a very picky eater, loves his new "ice cream."  Now, my older boys could not be fooled . . . they immediatel…
