Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – Family Grand Prix

After the wife made her glorious debut playing Minecraft, I knew I had to figure out more ways to get her in videos. There as only one sure fire way to peak her interest. Mario Kart. It is by far her favorite game and since she is so competitive she couldn’t resist facing me and Alex in a Grand Prix. She is great but I’m no slouch myself, and Alex is a total wild card. You can cut the tension with a knife. Enjoy!

Alex Toy Reviews – Setting Traps in Minecraft (Part 1)

It is not even up for debate that Minecraft is Alex’s favorite video game to play. The better question is how do I get him to try anything else. Fortunately he is branching out from just trying to blow everything up and has moved on to setting traps for other players. It was no coincidence that Alex decided to trying making increasingly elaborate traps them moment that his little brother Lukas wanted to play. They didn’t hit eachother at all so I call it a win-win. Enjoy!

Alex Toy Reviews – Bendy and the Ink Machine Playset

Alex only had one request for his birthday party this year. That the theme be Bendy and the Ink Machine. We don’t play PC games so he’s never even played the game. He’s just seen videos on YouTube. Still, he loves Bendy and knows all the other characters. We went all out on the decorations and of course it carried over to the presents. There is still only so much Bendy merchandise but the coup de gras was a faux Bendy and the Ink Machine Lego set. It was pretty impressive. As always the boys wanted nothing to do with following the instructions but I got them to agree to putting it all together one time before having their way with it. Enjoy!

Alex Toy Reviews – Lego Star Wars Hoth Medical Chamber (Final Product)

I just couldn’t help myself. With the boys sleeping for the night I decided to go ahead and finish the Hoth Medical Chamber myself. Even the simplest Lego design takes some time to finish so I was pretty exhausted by the time it was done. Still, I thought it came out pretty good and Alex even got to try it out.  Enjoy!
