A few weekends ago Katie
and I took the boys to BrickFair
in Chantilly VA. We went on a Sunday like we did last year, but this year it was even more crowded. They said that on Saturday people actually had to wait over an hour to get in because the building was at max capacity! B loved that there was so much Dr. Who stuff, one of his new interests this year. I brought home a few tiny treasures of my own which you can see in the top photo. Crying baby and lego pringles? yes please!
Last weekend B and I drove to Katie’s
house in Harpersferry WV. We got to check out her garden, say hello to their chickens and then we all headed out in her car to Leesburg VA. A boy scout troop was putting on a lego event called Scouting For Bricks
. It was lots of fun, like a smaller version of brickfair
, but way less crowded.
There was lots of exhibitors with fun lego creations to look at, and lego vendors selling all sorts of fun goodies. The boys loved it. They didn’t get to attend brick fair together since we went on different days, so it was nice for them to get to talk to each other about everything as they saw it. They took some photos of the stuff they really loved, and things they might like to recreate for playing.
Afterwards we headed to Purcellville VA and had lunch at The Magnolia Mill. It was such a cute little town so we walked around after lunch checking out all the little shops. It was such a nice day out, sunny but still cool enough to feel comfortable in a sweatshirt, my favorite kind of weather.
We found out about the Brick Fair
on Friday from my friend Katie
. She was taking her son on Saturday and promised to let us know how it was. Well she said it was great and would be worth the drive. So on Sunday B and I headed to Chantilly VA to spend the day looking at Legos. We had so much fun looking at all the amazing Lego creations, there were so many huge displays that I didn’t get good photos of, but that we could of looked at all the tiny details of for hours. Then we spent a good deal of time shopping for just the right pieces to take home. There was also bingo, a huge Lego play area, and a Ninjago game area. It was so much fun, and I can’t wait to go again next year. If you like legos the Brick Fair also takes place in Alabama, New Hampshire, and New Jersey, the Alabama one is coming up next.
