Here is a brief description of the movie: 11-year-old orphan, Félicie (Elle Fanning) has one dream – to go to Paris and become a dancer. Her best friend Victor (Nat Wolff), an imaginative but exhausting boy with a passion for creating, has a dream of his own – to become a famous inventor. In a leap of faith, Victor and Félicie leave their orphanage in pursuit of their passions. But – there’s a catch, Félicie must pretend to be the child of a wealthy family in order to gain admittance to the prestigious and competitive Opera Ballet School in Paris. And with no professional dance training, she quickly learns that talent alone is not enough to overcome the ruthless, conniving attitudes of her fellow classmates, led by the devious Camille Le Haut (Maddie Ziegler) and her wicked mother Régine (Kate McKinnon). Determined to succeed, Félicie finds her mentor in the tough and mysterious school custodian, Odette (Carly Rae Jepsen) who, along with Victor’s encouraging friendship, help her reach for the stars.

LEGO #Brickfest Live – everything was awesome!

If you are a Lego(c) lover like my kids are, you simply must find the time to find Lego #Brickfest in a city near you.  We checked out Denver’s #BrickFest at the Merchandise Mart on Sunday, August 13, and the #brickfest was fun – like past years there were lots of activities and plenty of stations to use your imagination and build.  The girls and

I also enjoyed trivia, which was something new this year for us. They handed out a ton of prizes for answering LEGO trivia questions correctly.   The girls enjoyed building a giant mosaic, and being part of that – it was Darth Vader this year, and doing mosaics of their own to put up for the world to see.

Like previous years, the kids enjoyed building cars and racing them.  There was so much to do and see, and build with, one four-hour session did not seem like enough, but here’s to next year’s #Brickfest.  We will be there.  If you can, catch one in a city near you. The tour schedule is posted here. We had a lot of fun and it was not crowded at all on Sunday, the last session, so the lines were short, and the kids could do activities they loved multiple times.  Everything was just awesome!
