Kaden loves Lego. I've mentioned it before, but in case you didn't know...now you do.
I promised Kaden I would take him to the Lego store today to participate in the IMAX Hubble 3D Building Event. And even though I was tired from creating the Zhu-niverse post and video from the night before, I managed to wake-up in time to make the event.
The Annapolis Mall opens at 10 AM. I wasn't sure if the event would start exactly at that time, so I wanted to be there when the doors opened. After all, only the first 30 children could take advantage of the perks.
We didn't quite make it at 10 AM, but we were close. Anyone who knows me knows that I am constantly working on time management. I was darn proud of myself for arriving only 10 minutes late. As it turns out, we were on time. The event didn't start until 11 AM.
We walked the mall to waste time. I found a cute pair of shoes for 75% off and snagged an $8 romper from Macy's which I can't wait to wear. And yes, I DO wear rompers. Keep your giggles to a minimum.
We returned to the store and waited for a bit. I met another mom of a Lego fanatic. We hit it off immediately. Just normal conversation about, you know, Lego bricks and design. Stuff us girls can't wait to talk about when we get together (the sarcasm is dripping).
Kaden and I explored the store like it was our first time visiting. It really is like a new adventure each time. I am obsessed with the Digital Box that let's you scan select items in the store and bring them to life in 3D. It's so cool. If you look closely in the background, you'll see my "mom friend" with no head.
A line was formed, and everyone waited patiently to start building. The children were suppose to build a space ship in honor of the new IMAX 3D movie Hubble 3D !
It was so hard getting Kaden to leave the table. He kept adding, and adding, and adding. Finally, I put a stop to it. His poor space ship would not even be able to lift-off if he added one more brick.
We left with a magazine, Lego guy, and a free ticket to see Hubble 3D.
Free makes me happy, but Kaden really enjoyed his day.
What did you do today?
Disclosure: I was not paid to write about Lego. We have always been fans of the product. I would say that I paid for this with my own money, but this event was FREE.
