So Much Fun at LEGO KidsFest Phoenix
I recently received some tickets for the 2015 LEGO KidsFest from #USFG (UsFamilyGuide) for blogging about the event. My son is a LEGO fanatic – he builds all kinds of things and has loved these toys for many years. We’ve never been able to go to a KidsFest before, so the boys couldn’t wait!! I let my husband and son use the tickets and they invited a friend and his Dad to have a “Guys Day”…or so they said!!
The event was about 3.5 hours away from our home, so the Dad’s took the day off of work and started driving. The arrived at the event and every one of them said that they loved it!! So many fun things to do and see.
Here are some photos of their fun trip – again, thanks you LEGO and #USFamilyGuide for letting my guys have such a great time!!
