In Other News Part 2 - Lego Brick Expo 2012

| | Comments (1)
Last year when Neil and I went to Lego Brick Expo, we noticed that there was a "VIP Dinner".  So this year we decided we'd go along to it.  I was expecting more people from the general public, but it was mainly exhibitors and other people already involved with the day.  Still, it was a lot of fun, and the best thing was getting to look around the exhibition not only with no crowds, but sipping on champagne :)

The Saturn V rocket was super awesome

I think this was pork, but I'm not really sure.  It was yummy though!

The guest speaker was Gary McIntire from Legoland California.  He talked about his life with Lego and how he got work at Legoland.

My creation (with a bit of help).  Pretty tragic really, I'm not creative at all!
