Terrapin Adventures is expanding! The newest adventure is the Terrapin   Flyer!

The Terrapin Flyer is the thrill of all thrills! Guests will climb up a pole, and then get the feeling of a free fall from 40 feet in the air. This exciting element allows them to jump off a platform and feel like they are flying yet they are in total control of their descent with our safe self-regulating braking system.


Check out this cool video or come by and try it yourself, free to press if you write about it.

Memorial Day heralds the start of grilling season. Perfect your fireside techniques and enhance outdoor dining by learning how to pair wine with grilled dishes.

I love working with my friends, but mostly I love being able to get involved with things that I never would have had the opportunity to do without my job: Helping Christopher with Down Syndrome meet his idol, Adam Levine, promoting breastfeeding on such a large scale, speaking at schools, working on campaigns with the President, raising money with Ed Sheeran for preeclampsia - these opportunities are priceless.

Mom Review: Matt Austin Studios Chalkware
Mom Reviewer: Christy Petrak

When I think of chalk, two things come to mind. Thin, white sticks used by my elementary school teachers, and big, round, colorful sticks that appear in the summertime for driveway "art." Matt Austin's Chalkware sets are anything but those two things, and bring a decorative aspect to a medium that is still meant for play.... to read the rest, click here!
