Candy, Chicks & Rock ‘n’ Roll can be found on billboards from coast to coast promoting the new animated movie coming out Friday called Hop. It’s from the producers of Despicable Me and I for one can’t wait to see it! We loved Despicable Me and I know this movie will be just as cute!
You just have to love the way they’re promoting this film – candy, chicks & rock ‘n’ roll is a great attention getter! The movie is about E.B., the Easter Bunny’s rebel teenage son, who instead of wanting to take on the role of Easter Bunny decides to run off to Hollywood with dreams of becoming a drummer in a rock ‘n’ roll band. The movie has some great characters besides E.B. – there’s Carlos, the “chick in charge” who’s trying to take over as the Easter Bunny and the Pink Berets who are sent by E.B.’s dad to bring him back to Easter Island.
Illumination Entertainment knew what they were doing releasing the movie April 1st right in time for the Easter holiday madness, getting everyone in the “here comes Peter Cottontail” spirit! I know my family will be right there in line after school on Friday to see Hop!
March is the month when the college spring breakers are off and running…to the beach! Even though the spring break destinations for sun and fun are endless, many of the twenty something year olds head to the ”Sunshine State” of Florida – Daytona, Panama City, Ft Lauderdale, Ft Myers and Miami are just a few of the beaches bombarded with these crazy kids looking to relax and have fun after midterms!
April is the month for the high school seniors to hit the beaches and for families to get away for a week. I like the fact that the colleges go earlier in the year than the family spring breakers. It’s better for everyone involved! Spring break is enjoyed by every age; toddlers, kids, tweens, teens and parents alike. It’s the first break of the year from school and believe me the kids are more than ready!
If you’re planning to go away for spring break this year, enjoy yourselves and be safe. If your plans involve staying home (between gas prices and the economy, I don’t blame you), there are plenty of activities to keep your kids busy and to keep from hearing those words every parent dreads, “I’m bored!”
Here are some ideas for you “stay at home” spring breakers!
The week of spring break can be fun whether you’re swimming, skiing or staying home! Do a little planning ahead of time and make this family spring break one your kids will enjoy!!
