LUG Lego Brick Show 2014

Here are just a few of our favorite shots from this year's Lego Brick Show. If you are lucky enough to have an event of this magnitude come to your town, we highly encourage you to attend with your friends and family. We chatted with Lego aficionados while we took in all of the Lego intensity. Everywhere we turned there were exciting and creative builds that filled nearly two early Saturday morning hours. We left inspired to create and build like never before.

Is The BAT The Future of Wind Energy?

Is this the future of wind energy? Scientists have created a way to capture some of the most viable wind currents that the atmosphere has to offer. It is a helium-filled BAT (buoyant airborne turbine) and could be the eco-friendly solution to bringing energy to rural areas. It is said that wind energy could power the planet for the rest of existence so finding new ways to capture currents seems like a smart option in today's gas guzzling world. 

Click here for more details on the BAT and how it works.

Scenes From Easter

This was a very special Easter in our house and celebrations included free-range eggs, heaps of Reese's, a midday nap and of course oodles of chocolate. As the youngest in the crew exclaimed, "Ooh that Easter Bunny was good to us this year!:. In years past, we have posted shots just from our point of view but this year, the budding photogs got in on the action by catching glimpses of their liking. Here is our collective gallery of this year's Easter celebration. Happy Easter.

Can you guess who took each photo: kids or adults?

Enough cannot be said about the life of a busy mom. She can maintain the balance of her family with work, play, pets and love.
