Over the past few weeks, we have been a non-stop, on-the-go family. We had a wonderful vacation in Denver, followed by weekend road trips spanning from Oregon’s Pacific Coastline to waterfall hiking in Washington. Throughout it all, Netflix was there. Travel time to each location was around the two-hour mark, so we loaded up the iPods with downloads using the Netflix App + streaming was a breeze.
Even when we aren’t hitting the road, Netflix is a big part of our day to day lives + according to a recent press release, we aren’t alone.I was thrilled to read that we aren’t the only family that enjoys sharing evening laughs with each other. School mornings always feel a bit rushed, so we don’t usually have the television turned on, but in the evenings before bedtime, we all gathered in the living room to watch America’s Funniest Home Videos together. Nothing brings a close to the end of the day quite like a good cackle session + AFV always delivers.
As far as afternoons go, we are pretty booked. My children have activities scheduled every weekday after school. That’s right. All five weekdays. (Is it summer yet?) And the car ride to each of them can range from 20-25 minutes. You better believe Netflix tags along. Currently, my seven-year-old son can’t get enough of the series Huntik.If your child is a fan of any of the Pokémon or YuGi-Oh! series, add Huntik to your queue.
My four-year-old daughter shares my son’s love for Huntik, but when it’s her turn to pick a show to watch, it’s always My Little Pony.Netflix has no shortage of My Little Pony series to chose from, either, which makes for one happy child. =)
As for me, I just can’t get enough of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.This series is my go-to at night after I’ve put the kids to bed. It takes me to my happy place.
But the series I just can’t wait for is The Defenders!Ah! I. Can’t. Wait.
What about your family? What are y’all watching? Do you share laughs in the mornings or at night before bed? I’d love to know!!!
