LEGO KidsFest!

LEGO KidsFest rolled into town over the weekend and took up residence at the "Invention Center," as Liam calls it.  When we looked into it, we thought it might not be entirely suitable for Jamie given the session times and Jamie's nap time so we got tickets for Liam and Granddad.

Saturday morning they headed out to the convention center armed with tickets and my old digital camera, ready for a day of fun.

People, handing a digital camera to a 6 year old can have some spotty results.  Here is a sampling of the kind of pictures Liam took.

Luckily it got better once they actually got to KidFest.  Apparently they had a great time (once they FINALLY got in - lots of crowds, little parking).  They built stuff, they took pictures with the Lego statuary, and, of course, Liam wheedled Legos out of Granddad at the gift shop.  When they came home Liam said "Mom, they had a gift shop.  And it had ONLY LEGOS!  Can you believe that?"

He had a great time.  Afterward, they went back to Grandma and Granddad's house where Liam promptly put together his Jedi ship on his own without any help at all.  

If KidsFest comes back, we'll definitely go back!
