A Summer filled with Adventures, Netflix #StreamTeam


Our summer break has been filled with adventures big and small.  We've gone into the city to see a show, we've attended multiple camps, we've spent hours in the pool, we've gone rock climbing, and bungee jumped, played mini golf, and watched some epic adventures for some inspiration on Netflix as well.

Our Summer Day Camp Adventure with the Boy Scouts #Sponsored

Boy Scouts Summer Camp

A few weeks ago the twins and I were invited to attend a Boy Scouts summer camp so that we could share our experiences.  I learned that there are a variety of different Boy Scouts camps taking place across the country, each offering a varying range of summer adventures.  Day & overnight camp activities can include hiking, archery, sling shots, obstacle courses, swimming, arts & crafts, field sports, roasting marshmallows, or other themed-oriented fun.  We attended a cub scout twilight camp organized by the Rainbow Council.

Nature Connects: Art with LEGO bricks by Sean Kenney opens at Morton Arboretum Today #NatureConnectsTMA

#natureconnectsTMA Sean Kenney LEGO Art

Last evening the twins, my husband, and I attended the media preview for the Morton Arboretum's latest temporary exhibit, Nature Connects: Art with LEGO bricks by Sean Kenney.  As a special treat, the artist himself was there to introduce himself, answer questions, and sign copies of one of his children's model building books.  Sean Kenney also took the time to personally walk with us in the rain through 4 of his 13 pieces on display throughout the Arboretum’s east side landscapes.  Rain or shine, Sean Kenney's brick sculptures displayed within the natural landscapes of this beautiful arboretum are most impressive and a definite must see for anyone who's ever snapped a LEGO brick or two together.  Sean Kenney and his team actually snapped 464,770 LEGO bricks together for this exhibit.
