LEGO® KidsFest Back in Richmond! Info and Giveaway Here!

Last year, I had an amazing experience attending LEGO® KidsFest with my family. Being the mom of 2 boys, LEGO® bricks are a must have and being able to attend an event that focuses solely on these is not to be missed! Last year was the first time LEGO® KidsFest visited Richmond, VA. They had such a spectacular turnout that they will be back again this year! It is a trip I highly recommend your family experience. LEGO® KidsFest will be at the Richmond Convention Center from October 3 to October 5. Since the show only makes 7 North American appearances each year, this is a big deal! Tickets sell out FAST. No marketing ploy here, they really sold out last year! If you wait until the last minute you may just lose out entirely. So what exactly is LEGO® KidsFest for those of you who have not heard? Just check these photos out! LEGO® KidsFest is a hands-on, … read more

Disney On Ice: Let’s Celebrate! Was A Magical Celebration!


If you have been following this blog, you know we had the opportunity to check out Disney On Ice: Let’s Celebrate! last night at the Richmond Coliseum. I must admit, I am 27 years old and have NEVER been to a Disney On Ice show. I didn’t want my son to know that same sadness (and I wanted to cure myself!) so we packed up and headed on our adventure. The show started at 7 PM last night and we were so excited to be there. It was more than I could have even imagined! For starters, my son is maybe the biggest Mickey Mouse fans alive. So he just sat there saying Mickey Mouse show!!! over and over. He squealed and smiled and danced more than I have ever seen him do! The magical twinkle in his eye was enough to make me ant to cry! The show was … read more
