...Last night, AR and I had a super special Girls' Night, we went to LEGO Kidsfest! We headed downtown early and I was super stoked to find out that parking in the garage attached to America's Center was only $10. Then I got to the 7th level and realized there's no elevator. No worries, AR is a big girl and walked all seven flights on her own... and then her hand was solid black-yuck! We maneuvered our way through the Haunted House Convention and finally made our way to the LEGO Kidsfest. It was a bit like herding cattle at the beginning but if you just keep walking, it connected to the Ed Jones Dome and then it spread out quite a bit. Even though the event was sold out, it didn't really seem that crowded which was really nice.

First stop, AR was obsessed with these bean bag chairs where you could sit an dread LEGO books. Well, until she flipped over in one and totally busted her lip. :-/

Her lip was really big and puffy all night. She even said it hurt throughout the evening but luckily, this morning she said it's all better. Oh and there was blood everywhere-yuck! Guess she just needed to learn the hard way to stop when Mommy tells her.

After those minor issues, we made our way to the main area of LEGO Kidsfest. They had huge piles of LEGOS that you could crawl in and play with.

GAH-is it me or does she look like a total big girl when she sits like that???

Each place we went to, she loved and didn't want to leave. I had to convince her we could always come (but there was so much to do, we never did!). Luckily in this race car area, some dad gave AR hers as they were leaving. She loved racing and saying, "1-2-3-4 GO!"

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and pizza! And don't worry, if you drop the pizza, it doesn't break... we found out.


Building a creation...

Ta-da, finished product!!! And if you showed this to a worker, you got a little kit to bring home.

Toward the end, we found the Duplo area. We should have gone there first because those were more her kind of LEGOs. Also, in this area was a Daddy Changing area and a Mommy Nursing/Changing area. Love that they were so family friendly!

"Look, Mom, a cupcake!" So my child!

We snapped the rest of these pics on our way out and AR was starving right now (and you know it's serious because she never says she's hungry). Nanny loves Buzz and Woody but AR wouldn't smile so I said, "Come on, Nanners will want this." My mom HATES being called Nanners so this is AR with a shocked face that I called her that.

Pic with Superman for my 8th grade bestie

My child is obsessed with monkeys so of course we had to get this pic.

It was a great time and then I had to carry her up 7 flights of stairs and I was TIRED!!!

After LEGO Kidsfest, I took her to Fitz's for dinner. After Matt and I had our first appointment with our fertility doctor, we went to Fitz's for lunch. I can still remember that so day so clearly, I was super depressed thinking we'd never be parents but look at my dinner date last night! #Believe

Legofest looks like so much fun! I will definitely have to look into it when Jude is older!
