    Since I was a child I have been fascinated by LEGO sculptures. The time and dedication that goes into building the large structures always has me in awe. I think every adult has a LEGO memory! (and every mom one of stepping on a LEGO!)

    I’ve always wanted to take my kids to a Lego Kidsfest. We don’t have anything like that here in my corner of Tennessee, but I might be able to drive up to Louisville for the one there. My mom lives near Louisville.
