Enter, day 1: last Sunday we drove out to the Dulles Expo Center for Brickfair, which is officially called a "LEGO fan festival". Now, I am not particularly a lego fan. Or fanatic. Although perhaps a little crazy about legos, especially when I step on the tiny pieces that blend into the carpet, or when I can't find a horizontal surface in the family room to put a drink down on. Seriously, though, my hubby is a fanatic of the good kind, and is busy growing up the kids into little lego fanatics as well. Even while I am typing today, they are in the kitchen, making a new creation at the kitchen table. But I digress...
So, away to the Lego festival we went. And it really was fun, and fascinating to see all the crazy things that people spend hours and hours building with legos. Not so different, perhaps, from me spending a year, off-and-on, knitting a sweater. So, I kinda get it. And they are pretty neat to look at. See?
