Travelling Light with Netflix Download

We enjoy having the option of downloading Netflix shows, and taking it with us when we are on-the-go! It totally helps us pack light when travelling - no need to take along DVDs! The downloaded shows and movies from Netflix certainly came in very handy numerous times during our long road trips this summer.

From historic facts and figures to little known answers for peculiar questions, in our home we turn to google. Since my first encounter with google couple of decades ago, I have been "googling" and learning from it. Google has changed our lives!

The Art of Persuasion

I have always been able to persuade friends and family to watch shows and movies I like. As it has always been an easy task, I have never stopped to think about how I persuade them. My husband and I usually plan to watch the same shows or one of us start to watch an episode and think it would be something that we both might like.

Shows We Plan to Watch on Netflix

We like shows that everyone in our family can enjoy watching together without feeling uncomfortable with the content that comes up. I am hoping Netflix will continue to update the selection with more nature shows, and movies and shows that we can watch, and learn about how wonderful our world is and about important things that could benefit us and those around us.

We are looking forward to watching Gilmore girls: A Year in the Life which will be available on Netflix November 25th.

Celebrating the season with Pumpkin

It is pumpkin season and we love it! It is one of our favourite harvests of the season. We usually enjoy it by making a savoury side dish, making soup with it, and baking whoopie pies and buns with it. This year my children got busy scooping out the seeds that we turned into a delicious snack to enjoy when watching Netflix.

Getting used to the weekly routine of a hectic work week and school especially in September doesn't leave much time for entertainment. So getting some time to sit back and relax during the weekends is something that we look forward to. This is also the time to catch up on what is on Netflix.

What's New on Netflix: DinoTrux & S.T.E.A.M inspired Project Mc2

We watched the first episode Netflix original series DinoTrux from DreamWorks, which will be launching on August 14th.

DinoTrux features hybrid dinosaur/construction vehicle characters, and follows the larger-than-life adventures of two unlikely best friends, Ty Trux, a massive Tyrannosaurus Trux, and his tiny friend Revvit, a razor-smart Reptool.

My family and I had an exciting time when we went to the screening party for Dragons Race to the Edge in Toronto hosted by Netflix. Since we watched the first two episodes at the event, my children being Dragons fans couldn't wait to finish watching the rest of the episodes. They completed watching all the episodes and enjoyed each one of them.

The dedicated section for kids can be accessed from any device, including PCs and Macs, iPads, game consoles, streaming devices, and smart TVs.

All Hail King Julien Party

We had the pleasure of attending an advanced screening party to watch All Hail King Julien, and learn the steps to King Julien's dance and have fun King Julien style. We also bought the fun home as we celebrated watching the rest of the episodes at home with party hats, balloons, squawkers, and New Year's Eve glasses.
