Newport Aquarium Debuts #KevinBacon King Penguin

Newport Aquarium treats third graders on field trip to surprise announcement

Third king penguin chick hatched at Aquarium in less than 12 months

NEWPORT, Ky. — Newport Aquarium announced to a group of schoolchildren Tuesday the addition of a baby king penguin that hatched inside the Kroger Penguin Palooza exhibit.

Third-grade students from St. Francis de Sales School in Lebanon, Ohio, went on a field trip to Newport Aquarium and took an “All About Penguins” class ran by the WAVE Foundation’s Manager of Education Programs Dan Dunlap.

At the end of the class, Dunlap revealed to the schoolchildren that a king penguin chick hatched on the afternoon of Feb. 7. Senior biologists Dan Clady and Jen Hazeres were stationed inside the cold-penguin exhibit and displayed the chick for the students to see following the announcement.

The king penguin chick has been affectionately named Kevin Bacon in reference to the renowned actor’s 1980 film “Friday the 13th” – the young bird’s due date.

Bebe (father) and Wednesday (mother) are the biological parents of Kevin Bacon, the second chick the couple has reproduced in the less than a year after a pair of chicks hatched simultaneously May 24, 2014.

Kevin Bacon is the second third-generation king penguin that has hatched at Newport Aquarium. Wednesday was the last king penguin hatched at the aquarium in 2010, before the cold penguin exhibit was renovated and reopened as Kroger Penguin Palooza in March 2011.

Kevin Bacon initially weighed in at 225 grams and has grown to more than 2.5 pounds (1,188 grams) as of Feb. 24.

Guests can catch a glimpse of the chick inside the Kroger Penguin Palooza while the parents share rearing duties.

Newport Aquarium is one of only 16 institutions in the United States to exhibit king penguins, the second largest species of penguin in the world with adults growing to more than three feet in height.

The successful breeding of three king penguins from one institution over a nearly nine-month span is a rarity. There has been an average of only 14 king penguin hatchings annually over the last 10 years at Association of Zoos and Aquariums institutions in the U.S.

Newport Aquarium has exhibited king penguins since the Northern Kentucky attraction first opened to the public in May 1999, originally exhibiting king penguins acquired from Adventure World near Shirahama, Japan.

Kroger Penguin Palooza features 50 birds that form one of the most diverse collections of penguins in the country. With the addition to Kevin Bacon, there are 13 king penguins in total, as well as chinstrap, gentoo, macaroni and rockhopper penguins. A sixth penguin species, the African penguin, is also on exhibit at Newport Aquarium in The Penguin House.

King penguin facts:

• With their fluffy brown appearance, king penguin chicks look so dissimilar to adult king penguins that early explorers described them as an entirely different species, the woolly penguin.

• King penguins are one of the few birds that do not build nests. Instead, they incubate their eggs under the belly on top of their feet.

• King penguins can be found in the waters of the sub-Antarctic. They breed on many of the sub-Antarctic islands, such as South Georgia, Crozet, the Falklands, and the islands southeast of Australia and southwest of New Zealand.

Got Water? @CastawayBay Does! #BloggingatCP

Phototastic-2015-02-09-17-52-57

Living in Cincinnati, the only thing you can count on, is how unpredictable the weather is here. One day it is 10 degrees and the next 55 degrees, in January! Always keeping us on our toes as to what we need to wear and bring just in case it gets cold! So getting to visit a place that is always 82 degrees, was just what we needed.

Phototastic-2015-02-09-18-05-34

Castaway Bay is near one of our favorite amusement parks, Cedar Point in Sandusky Ohio. And is also owned by them as well! With their tropical theme and and their 38,000 square feet of waterpark fun they offer hours and hours of water loving fun!

Castaway Bay features 237 hotel rooms and suites including family-oriented units, fitness center, 6,000-square-foot state-of-the-art arcade, a craft and child activity center, three restaurants, retail shops, adjacent marina and space for meetings, group events and birthday parties.

Phototastic-2015-02-09-17-50-45

The rooms at Castaway Bay are more than enough. With 6 of us, we easily fit right into their suites with 2 bunk beds, a king size bed with 1 regular closet with a safe and a over-sized walk in closet! Not to mention the large bathroom and vanity area that allowed us to take showers and get kiddos to brush teeth and hair without creating a long line for bed time tasks!

The view is something that, this weekend was a little covered with ice! But would probably be my favorite part during a summer time visit! The lake was completely covered with ice but there was a great breeze and beautiful scenery from the 2 chairs on our balcony!This would most likely be my quiet place after a long, fun day at Cedar Point! Phototastic-2015-02-18-14-52-40

But if it gets too cold you can always pull up a seat and get nice and warm with the large fireplace in the main lobby near the gift shops! Plus shopping can always make me warm up buying all those souvenirs that I need to take home!

Enjoy a weekend at Castaway Bay with their new “Room, Waterpark and Breakfast Buffet Package” for just $149. Use promo code BLOG at checkout online at Castaway Bay or call 419.627.2106 to make reservations!

While you are there check out more of Cedar Point and their great properties!

This summer will be a great time to visit Sandusky!

Tips to Choosing a #BathroomFaucets

BathFaucet_CapeAnne

When picking a new bathroom faucets, remember that the faucet can make or break your new bathroom makeover!  A new bathroom faucet can make a world of difference in the appearance of your bathroom. If you go to small or too large or a totally different style than the rest of your bathroom, you could lead to something like this and never have guests over!

ugly bathroom

Picture curiosity here.

First pick your budget! Faucets can range from as little as $25 and get as high as $400 depending on style, finish and brand. Just remember you get what you pay for. If you have a family and your faucet is going to get a lot of use, then you may want to spend a little more for a quality faucet that can withstand the abuse! If this is a powder room that is more for show than use, then a lesser one may be more your choice. Sirius_ZigaZaga-Mid

Then you need to know what style faucet  you are looking for. You don’t want something that is going to shock your guests and family in a bad way when they walk into your new bathroom. You want something functional but the whole idea of a bathroom re-do is to make it look fantastic! So figure out what style your bathroom is and find faucet styles in that category. Most faucet retailers will be able to help you determine which will look best with your bathroom if you are struggling to make a choice. But trial and error usually works best for me!

 Then you need to pick a finish of your new bathroom faucet. There are many types of finishes to pick from. Take your time and even take a couple types home and sit it out on your sink for a day or two to see which one fits best. You can always return the ones you don’t want! Here are some types of finishes to choose from:
  • chrome
  • brushed nickel
  • oil rubbed bronze
  • polished brass
  • tumbled bronze
  • distressed bronze
  • polished nickel pvd
  • polished brass pvd

After this, the rest is in your hands. You have to know what you like and what is going to work best for you and your household! Do you have tips to picking the best faucet? Share below!

Snow Tubing at The Beach?!? @BchMountain

Phototastic-2015-02-07-20-09-34

Snow Tubing at The Beach, The Beach Mountain that is!! The Beach Waterpark-Cincinnati that we have come to grow up with and love so much, has created a way for us to hang out with them in the winter too! Top their 40’ foot high snow tubing hill for a 2 hour session of cold, wet fun! Made with patented SnowMagic LLC technology to create snow using no additives or artificial materials it will seem as if it snowed for weeks!

Phototastic-2015-02-07-20-22-34

The snow tubing hill is great for families of all ages and is well worth your money. In the 2 hours we were there we were able to hit the hill 30+  times. Making the small amount of money you pay to get in a great value! With 6 of us, finding activities to do on a budget and keep them all entertained, is sometimes a hard task. All of my girls ages 6-13 had a great time and wanted to stay longer once our time was up.

The Beach Mountain is open through the end of February. You can check there times and days here.

Phototastic-2015-02-07-18-44-37

Taking your little ones with you is no problem, you have to be 42″ to snow tube on the mountain but if you have a little one that just doesn’t quite make it, don’t worry. There is a play area and smaller tube area that they can still experience the fun!!

Anyone tubing at Beach Mountain must complete and sign the Snow Tubing Release Form.  This form must be signed by a parent/guardian for children under 18.   Please click this simple form to download and bring with you to Beach Mountain.

Tubing is scheduled in 2 hour slots but can be extended for a few dollars more! Be sure to dress in your favorite winter attire! Just because its not real snow doesn’t mean it’s not cold! So grab those hats and gloves and  heavy winter coats!

You don’t want to freeze and wimp out at the mountain! If you get too cold they do have concession open to grab some hot chocolate and sit by one of the many fire pits available!

Phototastic-2015-02-07-19-54-11

You can only have 1 rider per tube and carrying your own tube to the top of the mountain has never been so cool while riding their Handle Tow Rope. This moving walkway is one of my kiddos favorite thing at the mountain besides the tubes of course!

Friends, Food & FUN… That’s What It’s All About at Beach Mountain!

Please Note: Weekend and holiday tubing rates of $25 per person or $20 on all other dates!

Check them out on Twitter here and Facebook here!

I received tickets from The Beach Mountain to visit and write my opinion about our visit. Although I was compensated my opinion is my own.
