The first time I went to the ballet, I couldn’t help but be enchanted. I was a child, and my exotic, much older second cousin was a “real” ballerina, breezing through town in vibrant stage makeup and a beautiful costume as part of a national tour. To top it off, the production was housed in an ornate downtown theater I’d only ever been to on elementary school field trips.

BULLHEAD CITY River Regatta
So, you’ve floated the Salt a million times. Here’s your chance to ride Arizona’s mightiest river: the Colorado.
The largest floating party on the Colorado River, the Bullhead City River Regatta is protected from power boats by a U.S. Coast Guard-issued safety zone, giving thousands of tubers a wide-open, 10-mile path to Rotary Park, where the first 25,000 to wash ashore get a free hot dog, bag of chips and bottled water.
Area hotels and casinos will run free shuttles to regatta launch points, where air stations will allow you to inflate your tubes on site.
Once you register (online), pick up your wristband and T-shirt from Harrah’s or Walmart in Bullhead City to get started. You must wear your wristband and a life vest to participate. Outfitters that rent tubes and life vests are on the event’s website.
DETAILS >> Launch anytime 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Aug. 10 from Community Park, 1251 Arizona State Route 95, or Davis Camp, 2251 Arizona State Route 68. Float ends at Rotary Park, 2315 Balboa Drive. $30 fee includes shuttle ride back to your starting point and T-shirt. Registration and life vest required. (928) 763-9400 or BullheadRegatta.com.
If “Bridesmaids” was the female version of “The Hangover,” then “The To Do List” could be considered the female version of “American Pie.” You could also call it the female version of “Superbad,” the raunchier version of “Easy A,” or the 1990’s version of “Sixteen Candles.” No matter what you compare it to, “The To Do List” still stands out on its own as a funny, cute, and gleefully vulgar comedy. Much of this has to do with the film’s star and first-time director/writer, both of whom we ought to be seeing more of in the future.
In a cluster of big-budget extravaganzas about superheroes, zombies, robots, monsters, and things that blow up, two little comedies about the magic of summer have stood out this season. One of these films is “The Kings of Summer,” perhaps the most overlooked picture of the year, thus far. The other film is “The Way, Way Back.” Both of these movies are humorous and identifiable with a familiar, yet eternally meaningful, message about growing up. “The Kings of Summer” and “The Way, Way Back” additionally seem to exist in timeless eras, mostly devoid of new-aged technology and modern references. There’s just one key difference between the two coming-of-age tales.

We are a month into summer vacation, have you heard the dreaded “I’m bored” phrase yet? Quite honestly, I don’t hear that phrase very often around this house; I try to keep our boys quite busy with adventures, etc. But this year I hadn’t put much thought into our summer fun days, there will be hiking and camping in the mountains, fishing, swimming — pretty standard things we do every summer. But this year will be a little different.
