We're Going To Portland

I've mentioned over and over how anal B is. It came as no surprise when a few months ago he admitted that when he was little, he'd hole up in his room for hours on end, separate all his LEGO® bricks by color and build "masterpieces." That explains so much.

When he found out we were having twin boys with a big smile he exclaimed, "I can't wait to play LEGOs with them!"  His excitement hasn't died down either; just yesterday when we were getting the boys' hair cut, he perused the toy store attached to the kid's salon and muttered, "One time they had a Space Needle one, I should have bought it because I haven't seen it since."

And, don't forget that he was a LEGO® "minifigure" (that's not so mini) for Halloween a few years ago

We're going on a family vacation to Oregon soon, so I applied to attend LEGO® KidsFest in Portland and was accepted! The funny thing is, I applied mainly because I thought of how thrilled B would be, with the boys as an afterthought because they mostly play with the big  LEGO® Duplo bricks and not the small ones yet.

Seriously, look at this amazingness. We have some very Cars obsessed twins who will be excited to see this. I think the only thing that could be better is if the event also has Thomas the Tank Engine. They are ob-sessed with Thomas right now.

I've always been in awe of people who have the creativity to pull things like this off.  If Boyfriend ever gets out of radio, I totally think he should work for LEGO® he's really good at engineering stuff like this whereas I  would have no clue. Maybe I should ask B to make a LEGO® structure of me, how cool would that be?! Or maybe just a bit creepy.

I was already excited for our family vacation together (our first one!) but the more I read about LEGO KidsFest Portland, the more excited I get for this part of our trip! I cannot wait to watch B's child-like excitement as he gets to share his love with our boys.

I guess tickets for this event sell out quickly so if you're considering purchasing tickets, do it soon!

  1. The Lego space needle is part of the Lego architecture series. It is a great series designed for grown-up Lego buffs. They used to be really expensive (like $50-150) but now the prices have come down A LOT. The Lego space needle is $17 in case you are thinking of getting it for B for Christmas.


I'd love to hear what you have to say, I always ALWAYS write back so please make sure you have an email attached to your profile :)
