Jason and I had talked about visiting one of the major LEGO events, possibly the one in Seattle, but it’s very expensive being that we are in Texas. To say that this news is a pleasant surprise is an understatement – Texas is getting its own major LEGO event, and it’s right down the street from me! I had heard a bit about it leading up to this week, but was waiting to see how things played out.
I’m very happy to say that it’s looking very good.
