The week in review

Well, it has been one interesting week that’s for sure! It started off with a really crappy Monday… I mean this was worse than any other Monday ever. But the week did get better as it progressed and Thursday was my Friday!

Yes, 3 day weekend people. Of course it will be busy because my sister in law is getting married on Saturday and there is all sorts of stuff that needs to get done to pull it off. I should mention that all 3 of my girls are in it, my husband is in it, and that leaves me & the toddler. Oh.. pants are okay to wear to a wedding, right? I sure hope so because of all the weight on lost on the awesome Cinch program none of my dresses fit and of course I waited till the last minute to try them on, but it is easier to chase a toddler in pants!

Just in case you missed some of my amazing…. not so amazing… and tear inducing posts this week I’ll give you a bit of a recap!

Monday I brought back the Monday Menu! I actually have recipes sitting in draft form waiting to be finished and posted so it should be around for a couple more weeks.

Tuesday I shared a post that was forĀ Wordful Wednesday and I had to share a bit about our weekend trip to the Lego KidsFest. Seriously, check to see if it’s coming to your town and go!

Wednesday was a short post because I was sharing my letter with everyone at Letters for Lucas.

Thursday I had two posts because I forgot about a book review that was due… oops. One was a fun Halloween craft and the other was a racy book review.

That’s my week in review. Nothing spectacular really.

I hope you all had a great week and I’ll see you Monday!

Wordless Wednesday ~ Lego KidsFest

This past weekend we had the opportunity to check out the Lego KidsFest down in Novi. So we packed up the kids, invited my brother in law, sister in law, and their son out for a day of family fun.

I’m happy to say that we were not disappointed! It was awesome!

Nat & ChewyCait & Chewy

Of course the girls found one of their favorite characters from Star Wars…. Chewy! I really thought that they’d be more excited about the Darth Vader though.

Andrew thought that he had to shake C3PO’s hand… or maybe he was trying to take it apart. I’m not sure because we were busy trying to get him to let go before he broke it.

Lightening McQueen

Lightening McQueen was one of my favorite displays at Lego KidsFest. It was awesome! I can’t imagine how many Legos it took to make that not to mention the time involved. I’m thinking that they have to glue those things together just to keep the kids from taking them apart… I didn’t try to take one apart so don’t worry!

Nat's little building on the mapAndrew Building

The kids had a lot of fun building things while we were there. Natalie built a corporate building that landed in Alaska on the map and Andrew… well he just built stuff but he had a lot of fun doing it.

Harry PotterBuzz Lightyear

More favorite characters! Lauren hanging with her friend Harry and Andrew was helping with Buzz’s lasers!

not sure...

Okay…. I’m not sure about this one. I asked the girls to send me a few of the pictures that they took and this is one of the ones that I got. I guess it’s just them being them…

If you have a chance to get tickets to Lego KidsFest in your area go! Seriously… this is a great family event no matter hold old your kids are. My older girls were sort of…. well, teenagers and all worried about what there would be to do for them. But you know what…they had fun! They built things, they saw some awesome displays, and took some interesting pictures. The younger kids had a great time too.. they had a huge section of Duplo blocks and that area was full of little kids having a great time.

Of course you can buy Legos there too… we skipped that because I just didn’t have the $400 to spend on the Death Star that the girls wanted.

How did you spend your weekend? Did you go to Lego KidsFest?

Hey.. it’s Wordful Wednesday and I’m linking up with Seven Clown Circus and Parenting by Dummies.
