Lego Batman Days @ldcatlanta @bravepratl #LEGOBatmanMovie #LDCBatmanDays

My family and I were invited to visit the Lego Discovery Center in Atlanta in exchange for sharing our experience.

In anticipation of the Lego Batman movie, the Discovery Center is hosting special activities.  We were able to visit with Lego Batman himself, as well as help assist in assembling a Lego Batman mural.

The girls also had fun checking out the rest of the center.  They spent time in the preschool area building walls (no preschoolers were present at the time) while I helped assemble the mural (above).  We also worked on the Batman Scavenger hunt in the mini build room.

Of course, no visit would be complete without riding the rides as well.  No pictures of those, but the girls had a blast and I had fun watching them.  We didn't do the special make a gadget activity, but the kids that were there were showing their creativity.

All together, we had a lovely time.  The girls agreed that they would happily do it again.  Proving that you're never quite too old for Legos.

Sweep @AuroraTheatre #Lawrenceville

I was given passes to see the show in exchange for my honest review.

From the press release:

Thursday, February 2, 2017 — Atlanta audiences are invited to step into a splintered world of strange imaginings as Aurora Theatre presents the world premiere of the femme fantasy story SWEEP, February 10 –March 5, 2017! The magical quest, written by rising Latina playwright Georgina Escobar, follows two sisters’ attempt at resetting history’s imperfections by hunting both biblical and modern-day targets through a set of alternate realities called the “multiverse.” Imaginative and adventure-filled, this zany, time-traveling escapade is a can’t-miss production for the New Year!

"Sweep" is now playing at the Aurora Theatre in downtown Lawrenceville.  A wonderful cast of 5 taking you on a trip through time as seen by two "Sweepers". Humor, human (and women's) rights and more fill this production.   I can't forget to mention Nickelback albums (see the show, you'll understand).  I'd say more about it, but I'm afraid I'd give too much of it away.  My daughter and I loved the show and how close we were to the actors.  I won't say it's appropriate for very young children, I don't think they'd understand it.  Teens, though, may appreciate it (mine did).

The show runs until March 5th.  If you have the chance, I recommend checking it out.

I shared a couple of these on instagram, so I thought I'd finally get around to sharing here.

Chinese Lunar New Year Celebration #Chamblee

My daughter went out to see the New Year celebration.  It was quite enjoyable, if rather packed.  That was the big downside to going.  Being short with such crowds, it made it hard to see some of the performances.  We did manage to find an ok spot to see the dragon dances, though.
