Keeping A Handle On Time His Senior Year - With @seiko and @cocacola

Our oldest son is turning 18 in eleven days!!  
OH MY GOODNESS...give me a minute to let the actuality of that sink in.
It's officially his SENIOR year of high school!

All the products sent for this review/feature were sent free of charge by the company.  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my honest opinion about these products.

He has always had a LOVE for Coca Cola.  
I blame my mom...who has decorated a large part of her house with it...while he was growing up (and even still), but he not only loves the drink itself, but to wear clothing of Coca Cola (it's been his school ID picture "shirt of choice" for the past three years in a row), but also decorating with it, in his bedroom, as well.
I was so excited to find out that Seiko was collaborating with Coca Cola with "time pieces" that are functional and decorative too.  
This type of collaboration would make the perfect "birthday" gift just for him.
An adorable Coca Cola Alarm Clock - Travel Version arrived and I just knew it would be something that he would not only use right now...to get him up and ready for the rest of his SENIOR YEAR.  But it would also be something he will keep and use as he grows into adulthood.
In my experience Seiko makes incredible, reliable clocks, watches and products.  I was not surprised that this is easy to use (plus it comes with instructions) and even has a push button light, for checking out what time it is in the dark.
I HAVE NO DOUBT, that when he unwraps this on his birthday, he will be so SUPER STOKED about it!  I mean, with it being travel size, he can take it anywhere he wants to go.
And don't worry, this isn't the only thing he's getting for his 18th birthday...but it will be a sweet addition to the other things we already got it.

The FINAL Days Of Summer - We Went To @AquaticaSanDiego #myaquatica

We are in the final stretch of summer...two weeks and my kids head "BACK TO SCHOOL".  
I've said it before and I'll say it again...I'm just not ready!  
The summer weeks go by way to fast!  
I keep seeing a certain post on IG that says, "You only have 18 summer's with your kids, make the most of them!"  

We were offered four complimentary tickets to Aquatica San Diego, free parking pass and a free Cabana for the day, in return for our honest review/feature of our time spent at the water park.  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my honest opinion about our time or experience.  Our food was purchased on my own accord.
So every summer, that is truly my intent!  
Our days are filled with activities, moments and things that help make memories that last a lifetime.
An Example of this?  
Yesterday, we headed to AQUATICA San Diego.  
It's funny, because this is a DOUBLE SUMMER for us with Aquatica.  
We have managed to go to two of the three parks...in San Antonio and here in Sunny San Diego.  
We were able to take a couple of my oldest daughter's friends along for a fun day in the water and sunshine.  
We checked into our PRIVATE Cabana and put our stuff away in our large private locker (that also has a charging station for your phone inside).  
Grabbed some waters out of the fridge and enjoyed some of the fruits in our complimentary basket.  
Having this PRIVATE Cabana was AWESOME, because they actually come to you to order food & drinks and then they deliver it to you when it's ready.  
We enjoyed a delicious lunch that wasn't too expensive and all the girls enjoyed it.
All of the water slides at Aquatica are fun.  
The girls loved Tassie's Twister.  
I could hear them screaming as they came into the final part of the slide.  
It was smiles all around.
They raced on the Taumata Racer slides and it was fun to see who made it down the slide first.
My daughter was brave and she went down the HooRoo Run slide.  
Not gonna lie, watching her come down it made me a little nervous.  
I held my breath the whole time she was coming down.
The girls also had fun on the Kiwi Curl Slides.  
They all managed to stay on their floats and reached the bottom with smiles on their faces.
The girls had a blast on the Walhalla Wave slide.  
I went on it too and it was so much fun.  
Plus, the view from the top is pretty incredible.
The Lazy River was a big favorite for the girls.  
They floated.  
They pushed each other under the water falls.  
They relaxed and soaked in the last bit of summer left, before they start the every day school grind.
The Flamingos are gorgeous and pretty friendly (and picture worthy) too.  
I had to snap a selfie with them.
I am so glad and thankful that we had the opportunity to spend the day at Aquatica San Diego.  
If you live in the area and are looking for something fun to do with your family...head to Aquatica San Diego before the hot days of summer are done for the year.  And if you can't make it this summer, make sure it's on the top of your list for next summer.  
Let it be one of the many memories you make in those 18 summer's you have with your kids.
