Pretend City Children's Museum - Irvine, Ca

Pretend City Children's Museum is located in Irvine, CA. It is perfect for  kids ages 18 months up to age 8 years old. The museum encourages play and learning. They have several hands-on activities throughout their space. These activities include art, reading, dancing, driving small cars, shopping with Pretend city money and just having an open space to play with other kids. It is a place to grow young creative minds. This month they are having a great exhibit that I highly recommend for school aged kids. The exhibit is the Ultimate Recycling Machine .

How to train your dragon 2 the Movie by Dreamworks Animation / Apollo Technology

Disclaimer: This is not a sponsored post. I had the opportunity to preview the movie for review only. It all started with a book titled "How to Train Your Dragon" by Cressida Cowell published in 2003. The story of a young Viking boy who struggles to fit in with his community in the Isle of Berk. He is not like the other Vikings and this is a problem for his father, who hopes to make Hiccup the leader of their village. As Hiccup escapes to find peace, he finds a rare dragon.  Hiccup becomes his friend and names him Toothless. Toothless is feared and hunted by all of the Vikings, except Hiccup.  Hiccup and Toothless keep their friendship a secret until they set off to change the minds of the Viking village and save lives.  In March of 2010, the movie based on the book was released for the world to see.  Moviegoers loved the story of Hiccup and the movie was a great success.  A year later,  Dreamworks decided to make How to Train Your Dragon 2 to help continue the story.
