First, we headed to LEGO® KidsFest at the Oregon Convention Center. For those who have 8 year-olds and no plans for Sunday - I recommend it highly.
My boys were looking forward to it for weeks. The event did not disappoint. My youngest even created a 'must see' list.

This ALL LEGO store offers buying, selling, and trading of the beloved bricks in all shapes and sizes. As soon as I heard of this store, I knew my boys would want to visit.
After almost an hour of oohing and ahhing around the store, our boys pooled their allowance for a small batch of bulk bricks (that they don't already have at home) and a few StarWars mini-figures
Here's a few of the store's great offerings:
Who ever imagined that such small bricks could bring such joy and contentment to so many?
