The Apple Store Rocks!

I love how Apple is so eager and generous to educate us kids. Yesterday, I went to the Apple Store for a field trip. My homeschool friends and I had a great time.  We learned how to make ibooks.  We created illustrations in the Paper 53 app and then imported them into ibook editor.  Now I have my very own ibook written and illustrated by me.  How cool is that!

Okay, this would not be a wonderful post without me sharing my ibook with all of you.

Here is the link for my ibook.

I hope you enjoy my story.  Special thanks to Ryan at Apple and all his staff.  You guys are awesome!

Guess what else is so cool?  When you attend a field trip at the Apple store, they give you a really cool Apple Field Trip t-shirt and a USB wristband that has your project saved on it.  Thanks Apple for going the extra mile for us kids.

God Bless,

Toys R Us LEGO Free Events

Even though I am not a Star Wars or Batman fan, I still enjoy Toy's R Us free LEGO® events.  The best thing about LEGO® bricks is that they can be broken down and recreated.  Don't miss these free events over the next two weeks.  They are a great opportunity to grow your LEGO® collection.

Have fun & God Bless,

OYO Minifigure Review

OYO Minifigure Product Review

I wanted to tell you about a minifigure that I picked up at Walmart made by OYO.  The minifigure I purchased was from the Dugout Character Bunch.

I found the product to be an awesome addition to my LEGO® collection.  The minifigure is well made.  It came with a bat, ball, glove, and a home plate.  I like that the minfigure is adjustable with rotating arms and knees that bend.  This allows you to pose your minfigure in lots of different ways. The minifigure is compatible with LEGO®, Mega Blocks, and Knex.

This product is also available in other MLB teams, just in case you are not a Rays fan.  OYO also makes limited edition player minifigures, mascot minifigures, and brick sets.  I have not tried the sets but, I would recommend the minifigures to anyone that loves baseball.  The minifigures are also available in football and hockey.

This review is strictly my own opinion.  I was not compensated in any way to review this product.

If you would like to check out all the products OYO has you can find there website here.

God Bless,

Save Rhino Rally

During a recent visit to Busch Gardens I was disappointed to hear that I would be riding Rhino Rally for the last time. One of the drivers informed me that they would be closing Rhino Rally on September 1, 2014.  I was sad to hear the news.

Rhino Rally was my favorite ride in Busch Gardens.  I loved being the navigator. The drivers were always so much fun! Special thanks to those that actually let me honk the horn, you know who you are. I have not seen any write ups in the paper but, I confirmed that the ride was taken off Busch Gardens app.

In memory of a wonderful ride, I am sharing my Rhino Rally Rover LEGO® style.

God Bless,

Brick Dreams

While reading my daily subscription to News-o-matic, I learned about a charity called Brick Dreams.

Brick Dreams was started by a high school student named Bailey Snow. Like all of us, Bailey loved playing with LEGO® bricks.  What makes this story most interesting is his desire to provide LEGO® bricks to kids that don't have any bricks to play with.  He collects these bricks, sorts them, cleans them, and repackages them in empty tennis ball containers.  Each container is filled with LEGO® bricks and includes one minifigure.  I especially like the fact that LEGO® weapons are omitted from his containers.  These tubes are then distributed to shelters or police stations.

I love hearing stories about kids making a difference.  If you have LEGO® bricks that need a new home please consider supporting this charity.  Brick Dreams is located in Granite Bay, California. Click here to visit Brick Dreams website or here to visit him on Facebook. This is a great mission and I look forward to hearing more about how Brick Dream's is making kids dreams come true.  

Nice job, Bailey!

God Bless,

New! My Creations Tab


I am super excited about my new tab called "My Creations".  This will serve as an index for my blog.
