My family enjoys the Night at the Museum trilogy, especially the latest on Night at the Museum Secret Tomb. Our little friend Dexter from the movie joined us in our family for a Spring Break adventure!

We started our Spring break by watching the Night at the Museum Secrete Tomb.  This time, Larry Daley (Ben Stiller) and his heroic friends embark on their greatest adventure yet as they travel to London in order to save the magic that brings the museum exhibits to life!    It was great to see the same star studded cast as well as new faces.  This movie was very family friendly with quite a bit of comedy and references to other movies like Hugh Jackman (Wolverine) which is my boy’s favorite superhero! 


 I made a special dessert for my family to enjoy while we watched the movie. In lieu of our monkey friend; Dexter with us I thought it was fitting to make Monkey Bread.

Dexter had a busy week with my kids and I. We went to the park, to the pool and the library. He tried to keep up with us but at the end of the day he fell fast asleep with one of my kids.


Dexter had a long day at the park today, time for BuddY bye! #TrackDexter #NAT3INSIDERS

When he needed a break from the craziness of my five children you could find him outside in our front yard tree. He found it nice and tranquil. He thought I did not see him swinging from branch to branch but I saw him! Shhh!

Then when Dexter felt lonely he came back inside for some love which my kids were so willing to give!
