LeapFrog LeapPad Platinum

You probably know that we LOVE LeapFrog.
Well, have you heard of the new LeapPad Platinum?
It's an all-new tablet featuring a 7” multi-touch screen with sharp, crisp graphics,
a fast and powerful processor and a sleek design, with 8gb of memory.
Your kids can also (safely) connect and play with their friends who own the LP Platinum!
And, it's TOUGH.  "We" dropped it from the 3rd step onto hardwood floors.  It never skipped a beat!
I really love how intuitive it is and how easily we set it up, connecting all of our existing
LeapFrog Apps. It literally took minutes before Luke was on...

And, then he easily checked out the Imagicards.  So user-friendly that mom isn't needed!
 He was playing with the pups in no time...

(I just love how LeapFrog provides such fun, while making them think!)

I was looking into beach vacations because we know the boys are out of school
for "Fall Break" at the end of September.  That stirred up (very recent) memories
of our latest trip to Disney, tho...and how I've hardly edited the photos, so...

It was late afternoon, May 25, 2015.  We'd just gotten our drink order from the bar...

1 Bloody Mary (Hubby)
1 French Margarita (Me!)
1 Water with "lots of cherries" (Sam)
1 Shirley Temple (Luke)

It was all just so pleasant that I placed my camera on the end of my pool chair and clicked!
