Next weekend is the Family and Kids Expo! I am super excited because I have never had a chance to go until this year. I have had friends attend and they talk about all the fun stuff their kids got to do and I become jealous. This year the event will run August 27th-28th from 10am-5pm which I love the time because well its kid time. Normally my kids are waking up at like 9ish and ready to go do something at 10-11 then they are done and worn out by 5-6pm so right away you know they are focused on the kids. The Family and Kids Expo is being held at the Orange County Convention Center located off International Drive in Orlando not to far from Sea World.
Here is some more info about the event:
In addition to the exhibitors at this expo, you will have the opportunity to watch live performances on multiple stages!

As one mom wrote to us, “We never made it to the attractions because there were so many other things for us to enjoy and learn about. My daughter got a glitter tattoo, petted animals down just about every row, played games, picked up free toys, rode a skateboard and enjoyed the performances…especially the aerial acts. We shopped at the consignment sale and had her photo taken with Cinderella and Iron Man. It was a great day! Thank you so much.” -Angela B., Mom
