Florida Aquarium – An Undersea Adventure!

Florida Aquarium EntranceDid you know that we don’t always get a chance to post about adventures we go on? That’s right, sometimes a location or adventure will fall through the cracks. It’s not that we didn’t have fun, or that it wasn’t a great value, but sometimes when we cram lots of Frugal Florida Fun into a single trip, it’s difficult to make sure we cover everything. This just happened to be the case when it came to our visit to the Florida Aquarium! I was actually reminded about this adventure when I was cleaning up some files and ran across a folder of pictures from our outing. It seems like quite awhile since we went to the Florida Aquarium, but we had such a great time that it has left an impression even after all this time.

You may recall we spent a few days in Tampa awhile back checking out all the local sights such as the SS American Victory Ship, The Glazer Children’s Museum, and MOSI. It was time well spent with the family, but the trip actually started with our visit to the Florida Aquarium!  Right from the get-go, we knew our trip was going to be filled with adventure when we walked up to the main entrance. The Florida Aquarium just looks fun! Continue reading

BrickWorld Tampa 2014 – Everything Was Awesome!

brickworld tampaSo do you have the “Everything Is Awesome!” song stuck in your head yet? (It’s from the Lego Movie if you have never seen it.) There is a bit of a back story surrounding BrickWorld Tampa for my family. I was watching the history of Lego on Netflix and discovered that there are huge conventions that feature these tiny little blocks of creativity. I started researching and found BrickWorld Tampa! BrickWorld is a traveling Lego fan event that travels around the country with displays, vendors and much more. BrickWorld Tampa is one of the largest Lego fan events in the state. I should also add that it was awesome!

At this point we have a 2 1/2 year old and a 1/2 year old. The oldest loves the Lego Duplo line which are the larger Legos meant just for toddlers and since he is just past the stage of putting everything in his mouth, I think  he’s ready for big boy Legos! We’ll need to be careful though, as his little brother winds up covered in Duplos when they play together, but I think we’re ready for the next step. I thought it only logical to checkout the BrickWorld Tampa event to see what was out there as far as Legos go. I’m very glad we did!
