Wordless Wednesday Nature Parks on Long Island

Here are some photos of the places we love to go located here on Long Island. As a teenager I wanted to escape. As an adult I see the beauty of nature that exists all around us. These places are only the North shore, there are many more places to discover.

Remembering Your Childhood With Netflix

Lately, when I browse through Netflix I feel Deja Vu or a connection to my childhood. There are many shows that are remade into better animation. My Little Pony, Inspector Gadget, and Power Rangers are still going strong. 
One of our favorite shows on Netflix is Star Wars Clone Wars animated series. It is highly entertaining and has a good story line. Of course it's not following the film story line exactly. Anakin has an apprentice in this animated series. But you will see how he questions the ways of the Jedi in certain episodes. I really enjoy the animation style as well. This series is over and a new series is going on through Disney.
There are so many interesting characters and my family loves anything Star Wars related.
My favorite character is Ahsoka. She is Anakin's apprentice, a Jedi padawon. She follows what is in her heart, which might not always be what the rules are. I heard they brought her character back on Star Wars Rebels. 
If you are looking for some feel good classics to watch in July, Forrest Gump and Top Gun are available for streaming. These two movies are always fun to watch.

June Brick Loot Review

We love Lego. That might even be an understatement. As a family we look for new subscription boxes that will deliver fun things we enjoy. A while back I got a free box to review. We decided to buy this subscription box three months ago.
June's Brick Loot theme was Brickasaurus. Our favorite so far.
Nerdasaurus was a super cute custom build. I like the custom builds because they come with real Lego bricks.
Nanoblock are really tiny but fun. They allow for realistic creations. Fun fact that I never knew: same company that made Etch a Sketch. Who didn't love that?
The hatching animals came in eggs. Which since the YouTube craze of egg openings, my kids dug this.
It also came with Sick Bricks. My son already started playing this game. It's a cool concept. Beam them up and play the characters in game. My only pet peeve with it is if the beam doesn't work. You need good lighting and plain background for it to work.
Our overall happiness level for this month would be a 10. Noah says, "It was the best."
We have the 1 month subscription plan which comes to $33.00 after shipping.

Free Lego Make & Take Jurassic World

This Saturday, June 20th, from 12-2 is a free Lego build. Make & Take events are a lot of fun, even if you have to wait on a line. We went to the Star Wars one and got to Toys R Us early. This event on Saturday is to build a mini Jurassic World gate. I still haven't seen the new movie, but really want to.

Do you like Jurassic World and Lego? Then this event is for you. One build per child and while supplies last.
