Have I told you my kids are a little obsessed LEGO building? In fact, almost every conversation in our house has something to do with a specific LEGO design or LEGO brick or LEGO set. Each child has their own LEGO “me” that they have built. Seth and Amelia have even made our house out of LEGO bricks.
I love that they put Jeremy, Elliott and I in our bed with Elliott’s crib empty! Such realists. Many parents get worried when their children are quiet, I don’t. I know where they are. They are all in Seth’s room building, creating and imagining.
It is also not unusual for me to hear, “MOM! Come take a picture of our newest LEGO creation! We NEED to send it into the LEGO Club Magazine!” And even though I have yet to submit any pictures, I have taken several.
Last year my friend Heather took her boys to the LEGO Kid’s Fest in Minneapolis. I remember seeing her post and thinking how much I wished there was one in Austin. My kids would go crazy insane with excitement.
Then one day this last winter, Seth excitedly ran to me clutching his LEGO Club Magazine. “MOM!” he said breathlessly, “MOM! Guess what??? We HAVE to go to the LEGO Kid’s Fest in AUSTIN!!!!! It’s coming to AUSTIN!!!!!” His excitement was through the roof and there was no way I could tell him no.
So we are going. August 31, Jeremy and I will be taking all 4 kids downtown to explore the wonder that is LEGO Kid’s Fest. We are all so excited. It will be a great way to celebrate the end of the first week of school. Plus it will be SO much fun to play with all the LEGO creations!
