This is part of our 100 Things in 2014 challenge. Here’s the full list.
We live about a mile from the Oregon Convention Center, and there’s a constant stream of happenings there. But we realized that, during our almost three years in this house, we haven’t been to a single one of them!
Well, it just so happened that the one weekend we had where we could stop by for a few hours, the Bricks Cascade expo was happening! This isn’t a LEGO-sponsored event, it’s organized by enthusiasts, and the exhibitors ran the gamut from grade-school clubs to serious grownups with 30 years of experience. We bought our tickets, and Will and Lucy each got a minifigure for being among the first 1,000 kids to enter.
Both Will and Lucy love building things, but we think this gave them a whole new idea of what’s possible. Here’s to many more years of LEGO!
