Coke Open for Summer Giveaway #BestSummerMoment

This post is the opinion of the Experimental Mommy. While a sample was received to facilitate this review, all opinions are 100% mine.

As we start to settle into our school time routine, my girls are being asked to share with their classmates the traditional, “What did you do on your Summer vacation?” I was so happy to see that they both felt like the past few weeks comprised the Best.Summer.Ever!  Score one for Mom and Dad!

We began our Summer with a trip to Callaway Gardens for my Reviewer’s Retreat Blog Conference.  After the sessions, we spent the rest of the week enjoying the Callaway activities such as swimming in the lake, tubing, biking, and hiking.  We had a blast spending some real quality time together away from the pressures of the City.

Not to be outdone, the end of our Summer was pretty awesome, too.  My family took our first cruise on the Carnival Conquest and visited Honduras, Belize and Cozumel.  It is hard to pick just one “best moment” from this trip, but my daughters both agree that swimming with dolphins was the most fun they have ever had.

How have you celebrated the freedom of Summer?  Have you refreshed with a nice cold Coca-Cola (I will admit to being relieved when I saw that the Carnival Conquest served Coca-Cola 14 hours a day!)?  Share your favorite Summer Moments by tagging your favorite photos with #BestSummerMoment on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram and don’t forget to check out everyone’s favorite summertime memories from around the country!

And while you’re online, you can go to all summer to win great prizes and trips to make what’s left of summer even better!  Look for a password on specially marked 12-packs, 20-packs and 24-packs of Coca-Cola to access six different summer-themed catalogs and to unlock a 40% discount.  In fact, I will start you out with the opportunity to win a great Coca-Cola Open For Summer Prize-Pack right here on Experimental Mommy!  The prize pack includes:

  • Coca-Cola beach tote and Coca-Cola beach towels (2)
