We have had a lot of fun summer adventures this year. We traveled to the Pacific Northwest, to Hawaii, and we had some fun times here at home as well. We were never far from the neighborhood pool!
We love a good adventure!
Speaking of adventures…
… we found a friend who liked to tag along on our pool trips!
If you have a daughter who loves princesses like mine, you have probably heard of The Swan Princess. This animated classic was released 25 years ago, but now it is getting a whole new adventure with the release of The Swan Princess: Kingdom of Music on August 6th.
My daughter and I got an advanced copy of the DVD and watched it last night! She absolutely loved it!
Here is a little bit more about this new adventure.

The Swan Princess Synopsis
THE SWAN PRINCESS, a magical, musical animated adventure based on the classic fairy tale “Swan Lake” has captured the hearts of audiences around the world. The winner of the Film Advisory Board Award of Excellence and the Parents’ Choice Award, it’s the heartwarming story of the beautiful princess Odette, who is transformed into a swan by an evil sorcerer’s spell. Held captive at an enchanted lake, she befriends Jean-Bob the frog, Speed the turtle and Puffin the bird. Despite their struggle to keep the princess safe, these good-natured creatures can do nothing about the sorcerer’s spell, which can only be broken by a vow of everlasting love. THE SWAN PRINCESS is bursting with color, dazzling animation, beautiful music and the vocal talents of Jack Palance, John Cleese, Steven Wright, Sandy Duncan and Michelle Nicastro.
I love that my daughter now gets to check out some of the movies I loved when I was younger. I love a good comeback story so it will be fun to watch this with my daughter this fall.
