Getting Ready for Dragon*Con {Wordful Wednesday LINKY}

This year will mark my husband's and mine's 13 year going to Dragon*Con together. What is Dragon*Con? Only the Southeast's largest sci-fi, fantasy, and gaming convention. Yup, we have been going every year for over a decade and this will make my daughter's 5th and my son's 4th. We love the parade and the different panels. But I think my favorite part is dressing up and looking at everyone else's costumes as well. This year our costumes were sponsored by Oriental Trading.

Stay School Ready with Catch & Learn Game + Giveaway

My daughter just graduated Kindergarten and I have been stressing this summer making sure she doesn't forget anything she learns last year. The thing is, I don't want her to stress about it. I still want her to have fun and enjoy her summer break. I was recently sent this fun game from PlaSmart called Catch and Learn. It's "the educational game where you fish for answers".

Gotta Catch Em' All on Netflix

Unless you have been living under a rock, then you have probably heard about the new craze in gaming called Pokémon Go. My husband and I have been having a blast playing it for a little over a week now. we have been to our local park almost every day, Stone Mountain, and have plans to visit Zoo Atlanta.

Some may want to pick on it and say they are adults so they don't have time for it. We play at our leisure. My husband was on vacation last week, so we probably played it more than we usually would. We are actually considering getting rid of our gym memberships because of it. We went to our local park a few evenings ago and walked FOUR miles! My legs were sore the next day, but I still wanted to continue playing.

Adventures at Dragon*Con 2015 #BehindTheBlogger

My family and I went to Dragon*Con over Labor Day weekend. If you don't know what Dragon*Con is, it's the Southeast's largest sci-fi, fantasy, and gaming convention. This made my 10th year going. This was the first year that we got our own hotel room (didn't share with friends), brought the kids, and were able to go the whole weekend. It starts on Friday and ends on Monday, but most people get there on Thursday (like we did).

Thursday with Storm Troopers. Friday with The Pirate Fairy and Rapunzel.
I babywore a LOT. Thank goodness for my LILLEbaby. I got a lot of comments about it. Some just admired how cute he was, some said how hard it must be to bring kids to con, and then there were just random comments. I enjoyed it though. It was a great way to carry him around and he would get so excited when he saw me start putting the carrier on. It was really cute.

Yes, those are Star Wars suck pads. :D
Dragon*Con has changed a lot since we have had children.
