A Busy, Busy Weekend Lies Ahead. And a Baseball Card Show Too…

A Busy, Busy Weekend Lies Ahead.  And a Baseball Card Show Too…

It’s not often that a weekend in which we are staying home is so packed with things to do.  But that is exactly what lies ahead of us and the next 48 hours are going to be very fun, and exhausting too….

Along with the routine of going to the library to grab some new books, both of my boys have been asking for the water park.  Lucky for me, the city we live in has one that meets their needs so as long as the weather holds up, we’ll be spending some time at the Coral Springs pool and water park.

The Coral Square mall is also holding their monthly baseball card show this weekend and I am dying to filter through some bargain bins again.  I may be getting a bit spoiled by having a monthly show in my backyard – I hope it sticks around this time!!

Oh yeah, my sons also have a date with Woody, Buzz, and the rest of the Toy Story 3 crew.  This film has been getting mentioned every day in our house for the last three months – I am happy that it is finally here.  I wonder who is more excited for this third installment, them or me…  🙂

All of this stuff to do – and it is just for Saturday…

As we all know, Sunday is Father’s Day.

Along with having dinner with my wife’s family, I also have something special in store for my soon-to-be 4-year old – Marlins tickets!!!  I went to a game against the Braves a few weeks ago and thought going to see the team play on Father’s Day would be fun.  The Rays are in town and since that is a team that I normally don’t get to see live, I jumped at the chance to grab some tickets.  We’ve got good seats too – seventh row right along the Marlins’ bullpen.

I am ready to get this weekend going!!

Check back with ’30-YOC’ on Sunday as I will bring you pictures and stories from the Marlins/Rays baseball game.  And then on Monday, I will offer up a full baseball card show review from Saturday’s show that I will be attending.

Have a great weekend everyone!!!

The Toy Story 3 Premier Is Just 2 Weeks Away…

The Toy Story 3 Premier Is Just 2 Weeks Away…

… and my kids remind me of that very fact multiple times a day.

This will be the first time that we take our sons to the movie theater to see a full-length film.  We’ve taken them to short films at the Imax, to short videos at theme parks, and have watched countless Disney movies at home.  But no movie-type happening that they have been to will be anything like what I expect of the Toy Story 3 premier.

As I mentioned a few weeks back, both of my boys love the Toy Story franchise.  And from their wardrobes to their lunch boxes to their toys, Buzz & Woody are strongly represented in our household.  Thankfully for me and my wife, the films are fun and entertaining for us as well.

And now we’re just about 2 weeks away from the premier of Toy Story 3.  We cannot wait!!!


Toy Story 3 Premier – 50 Days And Counting…

Toy Story 3 Premier – 50 Days And Counting…

Just like the 2010’s Opening Day for the baseball season, the countdown to the Toy Story 3 premier at my house is another highly anticipated event.

And while my generation(the 30-something crowd) missed out on the incredible advances in technology in regards to animation, our kids have benefited greatly from the advancements in film.

Toy Story ranks head and shoulders above all other kid’s films in my household.  My 2 young boys love all of the characters and it is quite odd to not watch both Toy Story 1 and 2 at least once a week.

And if you have yet to see the trailers for the film, don’t worry – ’30-YOC’ has that covered.  Enjoy!

Oh yes, my friends, the countdown has begun.
