Happy Birthday and Thank You, Dr. Seuss!

March 2, 2015 marks the 111th birthday of beloved children’s author Dr. Seuss. The stories of Theodor Seuss Geisel have played such a great role in our daily happenings and our family travels too.

Seuss Landing at Universal Orlando Resort

This past weekend, we visited Universal Orlando Resort and spent a lot of time exploring Seuss Landing at Islands of Adventure park. From the ‘Cat in the Hat’ ride to the ‘Caro-Seuss-el’ and the ‘One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish’ ride – we made some great family memories.

While I love the rides, my favorite spot is the ‘All The Books You Can Read’ store – filled with a huge collection of Dr. Seuss books for sale, DVDs and tons of great themed merchandise too.

We stopped in this past weekend and read a few books – talk about getting you in the Dr. Seuss mindset! For more stories, ‘Oh! The Stories You’ll Hear” is a great, outdoor show with many storybook characters.

I could spend an entire afternoon in Seuss Landing and I hope we can return again soon. I know Molly is ready for another spin on the ‘Cat in the Hat’ ride.

Seuss at Sea with Carnival Cruise Lines

One of my girls favorite things to do when sailing with Carnival Cruise Lines is the Seuss at Sea activities. From the Seuss-a-Palooza parade and storytime to the Green Eggs & Ham character breakfast – these events are tons of fun for kids – and the parents too.

And for the full Dr. Seuss experience, you have to try the Green Eggs and Ham – it’s a must. After reading the book so many times with Maggie, she decided to try them on our last cruise. I’m not sure she liked it, but it was a fun experience for us.

Dr. Seuss adventures have played such a great part of our family memories. As my girls grow older, I hope they continue to love the stories of Dr. Seuss and remember the times we’ve had together that all share one common thing – a love for reading. I think Dr. Seuss would be happy to see so many families coming together and having fun.
