Chi-mendous Kid's Activity!

This week I had the privilege of taking my boys along with one of their best friends to see the premiere of the new 4D movie of Lego Legends of Chima now showing at Legoland in Grapevine.

It was super fun. Of course my boys being on the cutting edge of Lego-everything have been talking about Chima for weeks now. When I surprised them and picked them up from school to go straight to the premiere they were AMAZINGLY excited.

We had popcorn and cokes from the snack bar and took them in with us to the movie. All of the boys - even the youngest at 2 - was captivated. **Spoiler Warning** Part of the 4D elements in the movie will get you wet. If you want to get the least amount wet sit on the far edges of the theater.

After the movie, we were able to enjoy all of the additional features that Legoland has to offer. We rode the City Lego cars, the Harry Potter ride, the shooting ride, raced our customized lego cars and let the kids played in the climbing/play area.

Can't wait until the nex…

We've been wanting to take our kids to Disney and, more recently, trying to plan a vacation. Then when we found a special $799 pp price, we decided to combine those desires and take our oldest two boys on a Disney cruise out of Galveston.

Mickey called to tell the boys that we would be going, and I can't tell you how adorable their reactions were. They are incredibly excited and I have no doubt Disney will not disappoint.

While we are veteran cruisers, we are totally novice Disney peeps so if you have any great tips, please share them.

I'm hoping to bring you some reviews of some great products perfect for Disney, and I'll definitely share what we learn about the best way to have fun, enjoy a Disney cruise AND save money wherever possible.
