In our house there’s always some type of music playing with Joseph and Olivia bopping along. Not a day goes by where we don’t have a phone, laptop or tablet playing some type of cheery music that gets us all going for the day. It’s how I was raised on weekends with music blaring while we cleaned and it always makes me happy to watch my littlest ones enjoy the same musical atmosphere I did as a little girl. I also love that the kids get to experience all the cool technological advancement thats’ available now to them like the Google Chromecast Audio that allows you to listen to crystal clear music wirelessly via Wifi  from your phone or laptop on your speakers, new or old. Perfect for those Saturday morning where we’re cleaning and want the music a tad louder than normal!

Good thing I got two Google Chromecast Audio to try out because everyone in my house wanted to give them a go and we all had the same reaction! The sound is crystal clear and thats because Chromecast Audio uses Wifi instead of Bluetooth allow you to stream crystal clear hi res sound every time.

More cool features:

1)      Listen to your favorite tunes on your speaker – By using your phone, it’s easy to play, pause, or change the volume from anywhere in the home. And while streaming, you can still text or call without interrupting what’s playing or draining your battery. My favorite feature because I can easily control the volume without having to get up and if you have kids you know that’s a beautiful thing!
2)      Crystal clear sound, powered by the cloud – Use Chromecast Audio to stream over Wi-Fi which has many advantages over Bluetooth including higher sound quality.
3)      Enjoy hundreds of your favorite audio apps – Want to use a playlist off your favorite music app at your next get together? Now you can! Stream millions of songs, radio stations, and podcasts through apps like Pandora, Spotify, YouTube Music, and Google Play Music. Find more at chromecast.com/apps
4) Play music everywhere with Multi-room – Now you can easily fill every room in your home with synchronous music. Simply group Chromecast Audio devices together so you can listen to the same song on multiple speakers. My teens have been loving this feature because they can now listen to the same music in their room and living room simultaneously!

The majority of the gifts that I buy during the holidays include some type of electronic. My older boys are all in their teen years and it’s all about headphones, game systems and, of course, their phones! Now, with a large family of 8 (soon to be 9), with 6 of them being active phone users, having options is something that I rely on. For the upcoming holidays my kids are already on it and have given me their list. Among a few of them are, as suspected, phones. The timing is actually perfect since their contracts are up, which makes it the perfect opportunity to run and get to Best Buy’s unlocked phones event.

Our First Staycation

We’ve lived about 15-20 minutes away from the Tarpon Springs Sponge Docks for over 11 years and it wasn’t until this weekend that we actually got out there to really explore it. It  turned into our first staycation that was a lot more fun than I thought it would be.
We went on a sunset cruise that takes you  to a little island where you can collect shells and watch the sunset.

A pretty rainbow!

Did a little window shopping. I thought that most stores were for souvenirs but they actually had a few stores that carried cool jewelry and some pretty dresses.

Indulged in some authentic greek food at a little restaurant called Mykonons.

Our First Staycation

Have you ever had a staycation? I actually loved the convenience of being able to come home every night instead of renting a hotel. Next up: We’re actually headed right back to Tarpon Springs for their Hippie Fest in August.
