My kids LOVE Lego building blocks, which isn't surprising since my sweetie and I both spent many hours playing with them when we were younger. So when I heard that the LEGO Americana Roadshow was making a stop at Fashion Place Mall, I knew we had to work it into our busy schedule.
Today turned out to be the perfect day. We were finishing up our Girl Scout meeting when my sweetie texted me to see if we had a free evening. Some of the kids had plans, but most of us were available, so we piled into the big van with Bossy's family and headed for the mall.
It was super crowded! There were people everywhere, but we still managed to find a parking spot. We entered the mall near the construction area and at first we were a little disappointed with the displays. They seems a bit random and haphazard, but that was before we saw the historical sites.
They were amazing! My favorite was the full-sized Liberty Bell, but my sweetie thought the Capitol was the most impressive. Crafty loved the Statue of Liberty. We spent a few minutes in the Lego store, and it was also ridiculously busy.
I highly recommend that if you get time to see this display as it tours the country that you do it. It's free and tomorrow they even have a little free build from noon to 4:00 in Utah. We will be at baseball tryouts during that time-frame, so you won't see us there, but we would love to come, even if we had to brave the crowds.
I wonder how many people they can cram into the mall before someone calls the Fire Marshall..
