We're giving away a COOP Sports Reactorz Basketball and Reactorz Disc

Summer fun with COOP Hydro Whistle Dart and Reactorz giveaway

All winter long, I’ve been itching to get outdoors and now that the snow is long gone here in Wisconsin, we can finally play outside which we often do multiple times daily. My two younger boys and I love to have campfires on weekend nights but when I get home from work each weeknight, we love to be active and have fun outdoors. So our family often makes time to throw a ball, ride bikes, take a walk or just have fun outside before or after dinner time.

This week, I was given a Coop Hydro Whistle Dart to use with the boys in our playtime and wow we’ve been having fun!


Congrats to our giveaway winner Birdie S who has 48 hrs to claim the win.

The Hydro Whistle Dart by Coop Sports is a small football shaped Dart which whistles (it’s clearly audible) when you throw it. We loved how this product is weighted yet soft and not heavy but flies with great spirals even by Ollie, my 5 year-old who does have a mean arm 😂.

This Hydro Whistle Dart is perfect for throwing in the backyard, beach or really anywhere outdoors (just don’t get it stuck in a tree!) which you can see in the awesome music video below.

COOP Reactorz Balls & Discs

I was also given some light up COOP Sports balls and a disc called Reactorz to test out which we loved playing with just as the sun went down. We had a chance to try these out last year too which you can read our review of here. COOP Reactorz are fun during daytime but when the sun dips down low and dusk arrives, Reactorz balls and discs shine bright when you touch, tap , throw, catch or bounce them. We love the Reactorz products even more when the sun goes down!

Below are photos of our day and night time fun with the COOP Reactorz which look the best when it’s dark outside. We found the Reactorz basketball to be excellent as a kickball too and loved playing catch with the light up Reactorz Football and light-up Reactorz Disc-even when it’s pitch-black outside. We live in Wisconsin with little light pollution, so when the sun goes down it gets very dark!

Breezy Point Resort and the Breezy Belle in Minnesota

Last week, we hit the pavement for a fun, adventure-filled family vacation at Breezy Point Resort near Brainerd, MN. We left the pets with family and traveled from our home near Madison, WI to Breezy Point Resort, which we found to be relaxing, enjoyable and, an all inclusive family destination (which we chose for its proximity to Wisconsin.)

We kicked off our Minnesota road trip by stopping by the childhood home of Laura Ingles WIlder, ya' know, from Little House On The Prairie. The obligatory fam' pic in Peppin, WI

The Breezy Point Resort is a 4 season resort located just outside Brainerd, MN in central Minnesota. There’s many services which are included with the timeshare we booked via RCI at Breezy Point Resort which included use of the shuttle, multiple indoor swimming pools (with hot tubs, kiddie pools, etc), numerous restaurants on site (or favorite was the Dockside Lounge which overlooks the beautiful lake) and our boating tour on the Breezy Belle!

Please note, our family went on a free tour of Pelican Lake aboard the Breezy Belle with yummy pizza from the Dockside Lounge thanks to Breezy Point Resort in exchange for this review.

Thanks to Breezy Point Resort for providing accommodations for our tour of Pelican Lake aboard the Breezy Belle in exchange for this review (and the Dockside pizza!) we loved our stay, big time!

The arcade at Breezy Point Resort was a hit!

In addition to the Breezy Belle, Coffee House and arcades, other highlights at Breezy Point Resort include multiple swimming beaches; boat rentals at the Breezy Point Resort Marina (non-motorized aka kayaks, canoes, paddle boats, paddle boards,etc and motor boats, including party barges); and the Spa.

Exploring the Southwest USA on Amtrak Southwest Chief and driving to Sedona AZ

Last week, OurFarmilyReviews.com Contributor Marilyn (Grandma, as my kids refer to her) set her sights, with her friend, on a two-week long sightseeing trek around the Southwest (USA). I’m pleased to present this update from her including excerpts from her friend Susan, which comes to you as she’s on the road traveling via train from Chicago to NM to pickup a car rental with select accommodations as they enjoy traveling USA’s Southwest.

Leaving from the Midwest

We kicked off the trip leaving the Chicago area and traveling the first leg via Amtrak’s Southwest Chief. I haven’t taken a train trip in 20 years and it’s hard to believe that I’ll arrive in New Mexico tomorrow morning. If we were driving it would take 2 1/2 days. Wow! And, round trip, it was only $200. Much cheaper than paying for motels, food, and gas.
