The first part of the exhibit was filled with marvels in Lego construction. The Lego artist had created many famous landmarks including Falling Water, the Sears Tower, the Capitol Building, and many others.
They were really amazing to see. Tom Sawyer was thrilled with part one of the exhibit and then he saw part two....the kid building section!!! A child's dream come true. There were huge piles of Legos in every shape and color just waiting for us to create our very own masterpiece. Each of us got busy creating our own building to put in the kid cityscape area.
Even Grandma and Grandpa got into it.
After a lovely lunch at The National Gallery of Art (NGA) and a shopping spree for homeschool art in the NGA book store with my Stepmother's employee discount, we walked through some of the galleries. We found Leonardo da Vinci's Ginevra de' Benci. She was as beautiful as I remembered her as a child.
We finished off the day with a shopping spree for the children at a Lego store. There are two of them in the Washington, D.C. area. My pocketbook is relieved that there are none in our area. However, using coupons, we got out of the store with very happy children and the budget still intact. Luckily, my children know not to even consider looking at the big expensive Lego sets. LOL
This concludes day two.
Day three coming up....
