LML Monday - Dinosaur Eggs and Doctor Who Marathons

It's Monday once again, my friends. And as always that means it's time to reflect on the things that made us happy over the past week. And of course now is also the perfect time to set the tone for a great week to come! 

If you missed my take on LML, you can find it here. If you missed the explanation of LML Monday, you can catch up here.

Dinosaur Eggs
One of our favorite Easter traditions is the "Dinosaur Egg Hunt" at the Arizona Museum of Natural History (which is, incidentally, one of our favorite museums.) They put out special Easter and dinosaur themed crafts and activities, and hide eggs all over the museum for the kids to find. It's always crowded and chaotic, but also always a lot of fun.

Doctor Who Marathons
If you follow this blog, then I imagine you've already picked up on the fact that I'm raising a couple of little sci-fi geeks. (It's probably one of the more awesome things in my life, to be honest.) So of course we were all very excited about the return of Doctor Who over the weekend.

So I grabbed my favorite Dalek mug, the kids grabbed their plush TARDIS, and we spent a good portion of the weekend watching the replay of the first half of the current season leading up to the mid-season premier. We couldn't watch them all at once, of course, so we came back for an episode or two at a time. It was a great way to break up the weekend - and a fabulously geeky-fun way to spend time with the kids. :)

Ok. I shared mine - now it's your turn! Please feel free to leave me a comment and share some of your recent LML moments. Focus on the happy thoughts, and let's all have a great week!

And if you're a blogger and would like to get in on the LML fun, feel free to grab the code and join the blog hop! Your post doesn't specifically have to use the "LML" label (although you're welcome to use it if you'd like, and the graphic that goes along with it.) If you have any kind of happy, positive Monday message that you'd like to share you're welcome to join. The more happy vibes, the better the Monday!


  1. OMG I love Doctor Who! I'm raising a Whovian myself. In fact, she's downstairs now, watching Angels Take Manhattan....for like the 20th time.

    1. That's awesome! The next generation of Whovians must be raised properly. :)

  2. I'm a Who-fail; my son has never been interested. On the other hand, my nephew just recently started watching, so at least someone in the family in the next generation will continue on!

    I have to say, though, that as much as I loved Oswin when we first met her, the jury is still out on Clara.

    1. Oh no! Thank goodness for your nephew! :)

      I'm trying to give Clara a chance. I have to remind myself every time that it's always hard to adjust to a new companion (just like adjusting to a new Doctor.) I think she'll be a good one. (Fingers crossed.)
