Ogoplay Party!

  So my little girl had her 3rd birthday party at Ogoplay. It was a blast! Ogoplay is West Kelowna's first indoor playground. It consists of a huge play area with like 4 different levels, probably around 20 different areas to explore within the playground, 4 very fast red slides, a swirly green slide, a small yellow slide, a small zipline type thing you see at most school playgrounds, and numerous obstacles throughout. Outside of the playground they have a dragon bouncy house, a toddler area with soft easy to climb around on structures and a small, soft slide, a merry go round, a miniature Ferris wheel ride, a ride on Lightning Mcqueen, toy dispensers, candy crane, and of course the concession! The prices are very reasonable considering what you get for your money.        Hours Monday Closed Except Holidays Tuesday ………. 10am – 6pm Wednesday ….. 10am – 6pm Thursday …….. 10am – 6pm Friday …………. 10am – 7pm Saturday …….. 10am – 7pm Sunday ……….. 10am – 5pm

Dominos Pizza Review!

  I had the honour of reviewing some amazing pizza from Domino's tonight! I was treated like a queen for a day from the most amazing general manager here at our local West Kelowna Domino's location. Amanda Kristiansen is the wonderful GM who took my order today and was super helpful, very informative and knowledgeable and a pleasure to speak with.     Wow. I was so excited to see the pizza man with this many boxes. It was like Christmas for my kids as soon as he opened up his pizza bag their eyes lit up.     As you can see I wasn't quick enough with my camera, I had to change the batteries and by the time I was done they were already digging in.     Domino's is very high quality pizza, it is identical to the beautiful photos you see on their menus.     The Meatzza Feast was just fantastic as usual and the new Pan Pizza was absolutely perfect!         I had ordered a Meatzza Feast and a cheese Pan Pizza, and because this was a review

Wreck It Ralph Review!

  Storyline Follows an arcade game Bad Guy determined to prove he can be a Good Guy. Wreck-It Ralph (voice of Reilly) longs to be as beloved as his game’s perfect Good Guy, Fix-It Felix (voice of McBrayer). Problem is, nobody loves a Bad Guy. But they do love heroes… so when a modern, first-person shooter game arrives featuring tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun (voice of Lynch), Ralph sees it as his ticket to heroism and happiness. He sneaks into the game with a simple plan—win a medal—but soon wrecks everything, and accidentally unleashes a deadly enemy that threatens every game in the arcade. Ralph’s only hope? Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Silverman), a young troublemaking “glitch” from a candy-coated cart racing game who might just be the one to teach Ralph what it means to be a Good Guy. But will he realize he is good enough to become a hero before it’s “Game Over” for the entire arcade? On Blu-ray & DVD: Tuesday, March 5 , 2013 Released; Now Available
