  • Cruz Ramirez and Lightning McQueen

    Cars 3 was the sequel to Cars that we have been waiting for. It was so well done and with a great story. The story had so many great moments and the cars characters were impressive. One of my favorite characters was Cruz Ramirez. She was a great character with so much heart. I have three coloring pages to share with you. Click the images to download the coloring pages.

  • My amazing kids

    Today was an interesting day of parenting mishaps. I am not going to say failures because each time we learn from what happens and we try our best to correct things. Let’s start with the morning. For the weeks leading up to the release of Wonder Woman I have been excited, very excited. I was excited not so much for the movie but because Eva wanted to go and see it with me. I picked her up a great Wonder Woman shirt and she had Allison do up her hair in curls. She was excited to attend a movie with Dad. I was thrilled because this was something that I enjoyed and she wanted to be a part of it. I also heard so much about the movie being empowering for girls and how Wonder Woman’s character was a great role model character.

    These things are true. The thing that made this trip go sideways was the fact that my daughter is an extremely sensitive and compassionate person. The previews were for some R rated shoot em up movies, a global devastation movie and Murder on the Orient Express. She huddled in her chair afraid of the loud noises and music. Eyes closed and ears plugged. I reassured her that the previews would be over soon and we would get to the movie and it wouldn’t be as scary.

    I was wrong.

  • Loot Crate June 2017 Alter Ego
    Photo-A-Day #4454

    I truly love unboxing Loot Crate every month. Now that I’ve been let go from the influencer program and I am paying for the crates myself I am glad to see that this month’s crate contained pretty much 100% things that I love. Inside were the items seen above from Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk, DC comics and of course.. Transformers. I love the Optimus Prime T-shirt.

    Next month will be my last month with Loot Crate. I paid for a 3 month program and am not re-upping. I’ve got to cut back somewhere and while I love these fun knick-knacks and exclusive cool stuff, I’m out of room for it. I’m going to stick with one thing and keep that, trying to focus more. That being said, I do still love Loot Crate and if you are interested in it please use my affiliate link and promo code. it helps me out big time. Who knows if I actually start making sales they might reinstate me. I am an Affiliate for Loot Crate and you can order Loot Crate through my link and use the promo code BENSPARK for a discount. http://www.benspark.com/LootCrateDX

  • I few days Back I published a post about the new packs that were coming to LEGO Dimensions. Well, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has released a trailer for the upcoming Teen Titans Go Funpack and Team Pack. These will unlock an exclusive in-game episode which will be quite cool. The trailer shows glimpses of the Battle Arena and it also confirms what I already suspected about Robin and Cyborg’s figures in the game. You’ll see when you watch the trailer.

    The Teen Titans Go! Fun Pack and Team Pack is set to release on September 12, 2017 as part of the LEGO Dimensions Wave 9 launch, alongside the Powerpuff Girls Team Pack and Fun Pack and the Beetlejuice Fun Pack. The Teen Titans Go! packs access an exclusive in-game episode that can only be found in LEGO Dimensions.

  • First Day of Summer
    Photo-A-Day #4453

    On the first day of Summer Andrew is not feeling himself at all. He’s lethargic and not interested in eating. He says that his legs are tired. We didn’t go to Karate because of this and instead I took Eva out for some Father/Daughter time for ice cream. I was going to take the whole family, but again, Andrew not feeling quite right. We were concerned so much that I slept ont he floor of his room overnight in case he got up and got sick. Probably not the best place to sleep if we thought he’d get sick but just to be close enough so that I could do something if he needed me.

    Taking Eva out for Ice Cream was nice. We had some really good bonding time together. I wish that I could spend much more time with her. She is such a sensitive soul and so passionate for things that she loves. She’s taken to Stop Motion with her LEGO bricks and it is very cool. I need to spend more time with her on helping her improve her skills. She has great ideas but needs help on some execution and technique. She has no shortage of ideas.

    Tonight I unboxed a few things that came in the mail. I backed a Kickstarter for a thing called the MicRig. This finally arrived and it is pretty decent. I also got my Marvel Unlimited 3 year gift box, it has some cool stuff inside. Take a look in the video.
