My kids were never into Legos. While I thought they were cool – I guess I didn’t have the imagination to make something spectacular out of them (and as a parent I stepped on a few in the middle of the night and it really hurt). But the FREE Lego Exhibit at Park Meadows Mall of our American National Monuments is very cool. Having gone to D.C. with my kids last summer and seeing these amazing monuments in person, I was astonished at the size and complexity of the ones at the mall. Maybe this will inspire both myself and my kids to like Legos a little more..again.
