Our Lego Americana Tour Adventure

By on September 7, 2016

We are a Lego family. I’ve asked for big sets for Christmas and Birthdays, just for myself! We’ve picked up many bulk lots from garage sales and craigslist to the point of I will be doing a blog post on how to organize our lego craziness! We even have sets and minifigs in storage until we can display properly. So we were so lucky to find that San Antonio was one of a few stops on The Lego Americana Roadshow!

We got up early and arrived even before the stores opened. We got to see all the amazing Lego creations of our American landmarks, up close!

There were lots of fun, detailed mini displays as well. My favorite was the ski hills and the cityscape, there was so much to look at we could have been there forever checking out all the fun scenes going on.

Up in the food court there was fun activities set up for the kids. Of course they had the car building and race track, along with some duplo building areas and some more displays.

There was a scavenger hunt that you had to search for answers to a set of questions on all the display information. It was fun because you also learned lots of fun facts about our history and legos!

We also had the opportunity to participate in the make and take event but my littlest had different plans and her love of Disney took over when she realized we were the first to be at the opening of the Disney store! She’s always wanted to do that so we took a break from Lego craziness and waited patiently to open the Disney Store.

If you ever get to the mall before they open, wait with your littles at the Disney store door, it is such a special experience, that to me feels like they bring a little of Disney Magic to the store. The ladies were so kind and made the whole experience magical! Both girls got to countdown and turn the big key and they each got their very own Disney key. It was a fun addition to our Mall day.

Overall this was such an inexpensive family outing. The kids really got to be hands on and having fun, and even though we were surrounded by things the kids wanted,  They didnt really make a fuss, we were able to go on to the next display or activity and the excitement kept them entertained! I love a good quality day with my kids with out breaking the bank!

I feel so scattered and nothing is being done 100% - but I'm not stressed ... my 12yr old is recovering well from his illness, my girls are behaving (sorta) well this week and I'm about to runaway with the hubby for 2 days to see his favorite soccer team play in Houston! The kids will be in good hands and I think 40hrs with out them will help us finish out the last half of summer break! I'm just going to breathe and get things done whenever I can! #summer2017 #summerkids #summercraziness #momlife #momblog #momblogger #momof3

  • Ahhh my downstairs is clean ... my girls are playing barbies and my boy and me are watching my favorite tv show The West Wing!  I've decided to scale back on how much I work ... just for the summer... I've been feeling more anxious about not working more on my blogs... as much as I enjoy the work I want to focus on my babies more... so if I can't work on it at night it will just have to wait :) my happy chaos life is too much fun to ignore :) time to make more memories!! Hopefully this change in focus will bring me more content and ideas for projects going forward! I'm blessed to financially be able to do this as I know not everyone is as priveleged.  #wahm #sahmlife #summer2017 #summertime #summerkids #momblogger #momlife #momof3 #momblog #mommyhood #mommoments
