Yesterday, my husband insisted we take a break from the chaos of moving and my return trip from California. The kids were maxed out. He was maxed out and he thought we needed to take half the day to go out and do something fun. So, we picked our favorite thing to do…. go to the movies. We went to see Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules (kids choice) and, let me tell you, boy humor? Well, I just don’t get it, however, my children thought it was hilarious. I left the theater singing, “Loaded Diaper!!!”
Before the movie, we watched and laughed at all the really cool movies coming this Spring and Summer. My daughter can’t wait to watch Disney Prom, while all three of my children were ecstatic to see that Judy Moody will be hitting the big screen (we’re big book worms here). Our favorite, however, was Rio. Oh, I’m loving me some Rio and now you guys can make your way to Rio, too with Chiquita’s sweepstakes.
Chiquita is partnering with 20th Century Fox and the movie Rio, the next big 3-D animated event from the creators of Ice Age™ , to bring you and your little ones Chiquita’s “Make Your Way To Rio” Sweepstakes. It’s an online journey filled with fun interactive games, coloring pages, videos, easy Chiquita recipes and sweepstakes prizes that you and your family will enjoy together. Did we mention that you’ll also have a chance to win a trip to Rio de Janeiro for your family? All you have to do is sign up and play!
How to Win:
Inspired by the upcoming film Rio, you and your little ones will help Blu, an endangered Macaw, get closer to his final destination in Rio de Janeiro, where he meets his female counterpart Jewel. By interacting with the website, www.chiquita.com/rio, unlocking badges and sharing your successes with friends and family, you will get one step closer to winning the trip to Rio de Janeiro, along with other great prizes like exclusive ringtones or even Chiquita Bananas for a year! Uhhh… who doesn’t want a year’s worth of bananas? My kids go through bananas like there’s no tomorrow. Plus, you can make yummy banana recipes EVERY day, should you win.
I’d like to say a BIG, “Thank You!” to Chiquita for sending over a sweet prize pack for my little family. In our prize pack, we found yummy Chiquita snacks, stickers, and a movie gift card so we can enjoy Rio when it hits theaters.
In addition, they have provided me with so many ideas for new and healthy recipes using the bananas, that my children have changed their eating habits immensely since I started working with this brand.
I’ve been invited to several private screenings for the movie, but with my schedule all crazy the last two weeks, I wasn’t able to go to any of them, so I’m excited that Chiquita is giving my family another option and the chance to make OUR way to Rio.
What say you? Have you seen the previews for Rio and doesn’t it make you wanna head to Brazil and eat bananas all day? No? Just me?
