Last week, my family and I made our way to Dallas, Texas for a family reunion. My husband, the two boys and I were so excited to spend time with Nana and the seventeen other family members (aunts, uncles and cousins) for a week’s worth of family time, fun activities and bonding.
Summer traveling can be challenging with two young boys. To help overcome the constant “Are we there yet,” questions we had the boys tap into our Netflix account from the iPad and my iPhone so they could stream their favorite television shows while on-the-go. Streaming Netflix and accessing the Netflix Family site is such a bonus for us when traveling during the summer. To know that families with Netflix can enjoy their favorites – always without commercials – anytime, anywhere is like having my own little travel buddy.
Once we arrived in Dallas, we jumped right into reunion fun. All of the kids wanted to see one of the big movies releasing over the July 4th holiday. Fourteen of us made our way to the movie theater and dropped a whopping $133 on just movie tickets. That didn’t include food, drinks and snacks – unbelievable!
We spent a ton at the movies that night and you know what, we are not alone. Parents spend nearly double on summer entertainment than they do during the holidays. A one-year Netflix subscription costs less than taking a family of five on two trips to the movie theater – that’s without popcorn. Netflix delivers big entertainment without breaking the bank ($7.99/month). For the rest of the family reunion we planned for family movie nights with Netflix. Netflix Family has television shows and movies that everyone can enjoy. After fun-filled family days, we settled in for the night and watched family movies like The Lorax, The Adventures of TinTin and Hugo and entertaining television shows for both the adults and the kids – it was the perfect way to wind down from busy, active days.
While the reunion was only a week-long, my boys were staying a bit longer to spend some extra time with their Nana. I was a little concerned my boys would be bored at Nana’s house so I made sure we hooked up Netflix to stream directly onto her television. The boys can keep up with their learning with educational programs, like LeapFrog, or enjoy some quiet time (while also giving Nana a break) with Scooby Doo, Curious George and Phineas and Ferb (“there’s 104 days in summer vacation …“).
Easy for them. Easy for Nana.
With Netflix Family my boys are set for their summertime entertainment needs. Netflix Family offers us more control, more flexibility, and more choices.
