I love legos! I hope that my kids will get "into" them at some point. I loved playing with them and building things when I was little.

On Saturday, on our way out of town after a fun day of shopping, we drove past "Streets of Woodfield" - a small strip mall area. There was a huge giraffe sticking out of a corner "store." Or so I thought. We drove around to see it up close and it was enormous! You could walk under it's legs to get into the "store" and in it's mouth it held a street lamp. Seriously. :) I had grabbed a brochure at the mall, and realized that it was for this place. Legoland. How cool is that? I thought it was probably like the huge lego stores I've seen at the Mall of America and Downtown Disney. BUT, when I got home and looked through the brochure - oh my gosh!!! It sounds INCREDIBLE!!! There is a factory tour, a 4D Movie, a dragon ride, an adventure trail, a miniland and hero area of created pieces, a place to build and test your own ideas, a soft play area, and a cafe. Of course there's a shop too. Some "store" - more like a mini theme park!!! I just looked up the website, it's the first of it's kind in the United States. I can't wait to go - oh and bring the kids too of course. :)

Here it is: Legoland

I'm thinking of seeing how much a birthday party would cost for us, J and her 3 and my friend T and Braeden's bio brother and sister. We are doing large parties only at ages 5, 10, and 16, so this is HIS year. :) I want to go first though to really see it! It looks like so much fun!

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website:

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
