Christmas Two Months Later

Our Christmas present to Cy was to take him to the Lego Store in the Mall of America and put $25 into whatever he wanted there.  Well, we just had our 4-day-weekend "winter break" from guess where we went? 

See those colorful dots in the background?  Those are Legos in all different colors.  And the statues on top of the store?  Huge Lego sculptures, made from tiny real-size Legos.  Incredible!
Here's one of the sculptures up close.  It kind of reminds me of the Rose Bowl parade floats, except these aren't flowers.  They're ... you know.

 We took this picture from the 3rd floor, I think.  You can really get a good view of the sculptures and their large sizes.  They were really impressive!  Cy was in heaven.
 This was a little piece of heaven, too.  A make-your-own-mini-fig station!!  The girls really enjoyed this part, too.
 See that circle on the top right?  Those are hundreds and hundreds of different Lego heads.  Most of them were different from the others...kinda like plastic snowflakes;)
 Mini-figs add the personality to Legos, I think.  Boys and girls are equally drawn to them.
 Usually you can't buy mini-figs individually.  That's just one thing that makes the Lego store a very cool place!  I think they were 3 for a $10.00 or something like that.  We let Cy build  a set of three, and he also ordered a T-rex/helicopter set that wasn't in stock.  Free shipping eased the pain of the wait a little bit....and so now he is eagerly awaiting a Fedex shipment this week!
 One last look at the Lego store!
