During the 4th of July weekend, our church went on a 2-day convention in Sacramento together with other churches from various cities and states. Sacramento is about a 2-hour drive from San Jose, but a lot of our members went because, aside from the actual sessions, one of the highlights of the event was the sports fest.
My husband was set to play in both the volleyball and the basketball games so I made sure we had all the stuff he needed for playing. But because we were going on a road trip, I also had to make sure that we had everything we needed to keep my son occupied as we drive to Sacramento.
Thanks to Fox Home Entertainment Insiders, we had more than we needed for our 2 hour drive! They sent us lots of HOME-themed items — water bottles, headbands, bubbles, stress toys, earphones, an iPad case, and yes, an iPad Air so we can watch HOME on Digital HD! Awesome!!!
I was surprised to find out that the water bottles and stress toys changes colors! The water bottles are normally blue, but when you put cold water inside, it turns purple. I swear, I had to double check because at first I thought I was pouring grape juice instead of just water into my son’s water bottle. LOL! It took me a couple of seconds to realize it was really like that.
The stress toys on the other hand change their colors to pink when squeezed or pressed. You don’t have to always exert such effort to get it to change colors (sometimes I just have to press a bit). But it turns back to purple in just a few seconds.
Now guess which HOME-themed items the kids at the convention loved?! The bubbles! And here in this photo you see them having fun popping those bubbles!
Our church ended up winning the Basketball championship, the Chess tournament and the Scrabble tournament (represented by me!). And we were all so glad not only because we won the sports fest but also because of the encouraging messages we heard at the convention.
My son watched HOME on our way to Sacramento, while we were at the convention (during times when he was too tired to run around) AND on our way back to San Jose. That’s how much he loved the movie! And I’m sure you will too!
