DR. SEUSS’ THE LORAX on Blu-ray™ 3D Combo Pack and Blu-ray™ Combo Pack AUGUST 7, 2012

I am so excited about this DVD. I have loved DR. SEUSS since I was a Kid and Shane loves his books as well. We already own The Lorax Book and Shane now owns The DVD.
It's a Must Have that will be available AUGUST 7, 2012.

 DR. SEUSS’ THE LORAX will arrive on Blu-ray™ 3D Combo Pack and Blu-ray™ Combo Pack ( both sets featuring DVD, Digital Copy and UltraViolet™) on August 7, 2012 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment The DR. SEUSS’ THE LORAX Blu-ray™ 3D Combo Pack will also include three brand new mini-movies including:

 Serenade - Two Bar-ba-loots -- one love shy and the other suave and confident -- battle for the heart of their would-be sweetheart with the help of a colorful cast of characters, including the Humming-Fish and Swomme-Swans.

Wagon-Ho - Two Bar-ba-loots take The Once-ler’s wagon on a ride they won’t soon forget.

 Forces of Nature - Determined to scare The Once-ler out of Truffula Valley, The Lorax decides to create the illusion of ominous forces of nature.

"Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax transports viewers into a fantastical landscape imagined by Dr. Seuss and vividly brought to life by Chris Meledandri and his acclaimed filmmaking team at Illumination Entertainment (Despicable Me). Directed by Chris Renaud (Despicable Me) from a screenplay adapted by Ken Daurio and Cinco Paul (Despicable Me, HOP, Horton Hears a Who) from the 1971 children’s classic, the film is an imaginative journey that begins in the town of Thneedville, where a boy searches for the one thing he knows will win the heart of his dream girl. But in order find it, he must discover the story of the Lorax, the often grumpy but loveable protector of Truffula Valley, in an exciting adventure filled with comedy and heart that USA Today’s Claudia Puig calls, “The right blend of funny, silly, and sweet.”

 One of the best-selling children’s book authors of all time, Theodor “Dr. Seuss” Geisel created more than 40 cherished books that have been published in 95 countries and 17 different languages, selling more than half a billion books worldwide. The Lorax, which Geisel named his favorite work, is included on the “Educator’s All Time Top 20 List of Children’s Books.”

The imaginative world of Dr. Seuss comes to life like never before in this visually spectacular adventure from the creators of Despicable Me! Twelve-year-old Ted will do anything to find a real live Truffula Tree in order to impress the girl of his dreams. As he embarks on his journey, Ted discovers the incredible story of the Lorax, a grumpy but charming creature who speaks for the trees. Featuring the voice talents of Danny DeVito, Ed Helms, Zac Efron, Taylor Swift, Rob Riggle, Jenny Slate and Betty White, Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax is filled with hilarious fun for everyone!

Picture Las Vegas

I have always wanted to photograph Las Vegas.  I have had the pleasure of visiting there several times but was not into Photography at those times.

Las Vegas is even the home of a big Photography convention every year. Which I plan to attend in the next couple of years.

There are so many amazing things that you can photography there from the strip to the different hotel rooms.  Plus you can't forget that famous "Welcome to fabulous Las Vegas Nevada" sign.

I love the fact that everything lights up so beautifully at night. All the Hotels and Casinos are so different from each other and feature some attractive features.  From specialty shows to large outdoor water features.

The Venetian has a beautiful Gondola ride where you feel like your in Venice Italy.

The Luxor looks like a pyramid from the outside and features elevators that incline at 39 degrees which makes for a really neat ride.  

The Treasure Island has a live Pirate Show several times a day. 

The hotel rooms are all decked out to attract vacationers.  For example check out this beautiful room at the Hard Rock Hotel. 

Its really a great place to visit because the Hotels make it entertaining and fun for both adults and children.  Plus all the great photo opportunities.  I am looking forward to a vacation there with my camera in hand in the near future.

Closing on our House and The 4th of July

I hope you all had a great 4th :)

 We went to dinner and then let Shane stay up for the Fireworks. They legalized the "big fireworks" in Michigan so everyone was setting them off. Shane was super excited about it and so cute that I had to share this video of him from last night.


Also we are closing on our house July 13th. I am so excited to own my first home. We did allow the current owners to stay up to 60 days and pay rent but I am pretty sure they will be handing the keys over at closing. If that is the case then we will be cleaning and painting the 14th and 15th and moving furniture the 21st.

Plus the 14th is our 5 year wedding anniversary.  Lots of pictures to follow :)
