Have You Been to Legoland or Sea Life Aquarium?

I have to confess I have not taken my kids to either place yet. My biggest stumbling block has been the cost, but I also thought walking through a room full of huge Lego sculptures might be interesting but would not occupy my three boys for more than 15 minutes. At $25 a ticket, I couldn’t justify that.

My thinking was altered a bit after a group of my friends took their kids there this summer. They told me there was lots to do, the kids played for a long time independently and the food in the cafeteria was good and not outrageously priced. However, I still hadn’t made the time to get over there with my boys.Default

So when Legoland and Sea Life Aquarium contacted me about working with them some and helping them reach the moms in our community . . . I was thrilled. Last week, they had us come in before the attractions opened and quickly walk through the facilities. Oh my! My kids are going to kill me when I finally take them and the realize we could have been here long before now. They are all over Legos and I’ll have a hard time getting them to leave the premises, I’m afraid. There are rides, a three-story climbing structure, and lots of place to build and even test Lego creations.

Over in Sea Life (just across the “hall” in the Grapevine Mills Mall), they have a HUGE tank full of all kinds of sea creatures. The latest addition was their sea turtle who just arrived this month!

imageHere’s something else I didn’t know about Legoland – if you come with a school group you can get a great discount, and this is good for homeschool groups as well.

Right now school group pricing is $10 for adults and $6 for children at Sea Life and Legoland with one adult for every 5 kids FREE. In the summer (June-August) the price goes up just a bit per child – $10 for adults and $8 for children.

That’s WAY more affordable for me. If you don’t have a school group, but just want to go with a group of friends, you can also get a discount.

Sea Life:

Groups of 8 –19 are $13 per adult, $11 per child

Groups of 20 or more are $12 per adult and $10 per child

At Legoland:

Groups of 7-15 are $13.30 for adults and $10.50 for children

Groups of 16 or more are $12.35 per adult and $9.75 per child

Birthday Parties are $20 per person for a standard package and $30 per person for the premium package

If you are interested in any of these package pricing deals, contact Craig Hardin at 972-539-9386.

After touring the facilities I am confident that I will be back with my boys in tow here before long, and I promise to share the whole adventure with you!

Have any of you been to Legoland or Sea Life? I would love to hear what you think.

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

A Christmas Post

This year as Christmas has approached, I have found myself thinking of Mary. Being the mom of three boys, I think it’s easier for me to put myself in her place . . . and yet, who can imagine what that was really like?
I grew up in a very conservative group of believers who eschewed any focus on Mary in order to counteract what they saw as “worship” of Mary by Catholics and Episcopals and some other more liturgical beliefs.
But you can’t deny Mary had an experience that no one before her and no one after her will ever have. She had a unique relationship with Jesus. She was his mom.
Think about the facts as real life and not some story in a book you’ve heard a million times.
Mary was barely a teenager.She had never had sex.An angel appeared to her and told her she was having a baby.Mary is pregnant in a society that KILLS unwed mothers.Mary may have only barely known Joseph as their engagement was likely arranged . . . and he was probably much older. She had to go to this man and try to …

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
Disney Character Clothes Pins-  OneMoreSunshine
Wave Phone Holders - If you need more information on what these are, you can see my previous post Top 5 Disney Necessities. Basically these are simple holders for a phone that Disney provides which is a cross between a cell p…
