Welcome to my BLOG! Made by a Michigan Mommy for Michigan Mommies!

I am a mom yes but my name other than MOM is Michelle. I have two boys. An 8 year old and 7 month old. My family and I recently relocated to Michigan from Cleveland Ohio and I can’t help but feel that this is where my heart has always been. Cleveland Ohio however will always be my home. Its where I grew up, its where I met my husband, and where I had my beautiful boys. I truly believe that every community is special but making the most of it is up to you. There are so many resources out there and I am EXCITED to be one for YOU! I am absolutely ecstatic to share my experiences with you all in addition to helping you find and make your own.
This summer we have visited The Rainforest Café, Oakland County Parks Events, Downtown Detroit Riverwalk, Wet & Wild Wednesdays at Van Hoosen Farm, Stage Nature Center, The Detroit Zoo, Booth Park, Troy Library, Thomas G Spencer Park, Cinema on the Street in Clawson, Michigan Kickboxing, MJR Grand Cinema, Troy Aquatic Center, Troy Lanes, and Oakland BMX Track just to name a few. I will be reviewing and blogging our experiences. Southeast Michigan is a great community and I am thrilled to be a part of it. Please be a part of my community and follow me on this journey.

Get Well Soon

While flu season is FINALLY over it doesn’t mean that our babies are immune to coming down with a bug. It can be such a nightmare and as parents we do anything and everything to ease that burden and this last cycle of sickness I did just that by creating personalized get well mini bins.

Easy, cheap, and it held everything I was going to get anyways.

I made a few stops for get well essentials and headed to the Dollar Tree. I grabbed a plastic bin and alphabet stickers to personalize with a get well message. I put all of the get well items in such as Gatorade, medicine, boogie wipes, hand sanitizer, and fun activities they could enjoy all while still taking it easy. Lastly I added a get well balloon because what kid doesn’t like a ballon and came home with not only everything they needed to cool down but items to warm their hearts.

LEGOLAND® Discovery Center

LEGOLAND DISCOVERY

We started our tour with a green screen photo op. The photographer had us do multiple poses and gave us a card to review our photos later in the tour. We did smiling faces, silly faces, showed off our muscles, and a surprised look. Lights! Camera! Action!

We then began our adventure with a fun interactive factory tour. Families were divided per an assigned color and then prompted to play along. It was both informative, and fun.

From there we lined up for the Kingdom Quest. Orcs were invading the castle and we had to use our lasers to shoot them. The reward was that of finding the princess and releasing her from the trolls prison. Next the Dwarf King was kidnapped from the evil skeletons our mission was to stop the evil skeletons from stealing our treasure and last but not least we were to save the dragons eggs by shooting the bad guys. The line was long but worth it. It reminded me of the Buzz Lightyear ride at Disney World. Also it was open to all ages as long as your youngest could be seated and walk. My one year old was able to sit right there with us. Five individuals per cart made this interactive ride one that the whole family could enjoy together.

Next up we were able to review the photos that we took earlier in the tour and had the option for purchase. From there we were dropped into a spectacular Detroit display made entirely of LEGO® bricks. Detroit city favorites such as Ford Field, Comerica Park, and Fox Theater were in attendance. Also on site were interactive buttons to move the LEGO® bricks and furthermore bring to life such a lively display. The display was available to see “during the day” and then for a brief period the lights were dimmed and it was lit up in addition to fireworks projected onto the wall.

For the final leg of the visit we were immersed into a LEGOLAND® Discovery Center play land. A play land in which you can put together LEGO® bricks, and race them. An area for toddlers that had bigger, and soft LEGO® bricks pits in addition to a small playground feature with a slide. An imagination classroom, and a 4D Theater. There was another carousel like ride but it was shut down upon our visit.

At the end of the tour we were of course let out into the gift shop. Some sets are very pricey but

we were able to find an affordable set for $30.

Days later I had picked up my older son from school and out of nowhere he says to me “Im really glad we got that LEGO® bricks set that I’m going to build with dad this weekend” THAT is what LEGOLAND® Discovery Center is all about. It’s about opening your mind and creating whatever you deem possible all while making memories doing so. Thank you LEGOLAND® Discovery Center for the tour!
