Me and the kids went for a nice walk today at the Chalmette Battlefield. It was a nice cloudy breezy day. We walked the whole Chalmette Battlefield and sat on a bench and enjoyed the nice breeze in the afternoon and ate a nice cold snowball. I guess you can say we got our nice exercise at the same time too. I love walking in the afternoon when it is not as hot and it has a nicer breeze too.

We were ready to leave and we walked around the trail to go back to the car and look what we came upon a duck's nest. My daughter was walking closer to the pond and found it. Look at all those eggs. We just looked at them and then kept walking. We had a nice summer walk at the Chalmette Battlefield.


General Mills is teaming up with Nickeloden's The Penguins of Madagascar to bring the action-packed adventures of summer to your very own breakfast table! Inside specially marked boxes of General Mills cereals, you'll "commence operations" with one of five characters from The Penguins of Madagascar: Skipper, Rico Kowalski, Private and King Julien.

Each participating General Mills cereal contains one character launcher with mission details outlined on the back of the box including:

* Dive In, Soldier - Set an empty plastic cereal bowl on the table and try to pop your launcher into it. Wear a helmet or you'll be squid bait.
* Longest Propulsion Launcher - Challenge your troops to see who can launch their character the furthest. Go long or go back to the zoo.
* Target Practice - Create a landing zone with a spoon and try to strategically drop your character into the sweet spot. Hit the target or go back to the drawing board.
* Clear the Wall - Do you have enough projectile pop to push your launcher over the top of the box? Proceed launchin' troops, earn those wings!

My family loves General Mills products and especially their cereals. Who doesn't love Trix cereal and The Penguins of Madagascar. They are absolutely hilarious and will have you laughing non stop for hours. I love these penguins they are a little crazy, wild, goofy and sneaky. My kids love to laugh at their antics. Each character is unique and has their own specific purpose. This DVD is great for the entire family. You can also enjoy a bowl of Fruitalicious Swirls Trix cereal with The Penguins of Madagascar and try to successfully complete all of their missions. I am happy that I had the opportunity to take part in it. We really enjoyed it and think that you will as well.
