"Legos Rock!"

Today was Nolan's birthday party trip to the Lego store in Santa Clara.  The Lego store and it's employees really went above and beyond to make this day extra special for our little dude and his friends -- we were blown away!  It was so fun, the boys had such a hands-on experience.  I have to admit I was a little worried about taking four boys on a trip but the boys were so mellow, so well behaved and so intense in their building and creativity.  The employees were so laid back - the boys pretty much had the store all to themselves for over an hour before it opened to the public.

The wall of LEGOS!  Every boy's dream!  They stood in front of it, mouths open and just stared...
Our first activity:  the boys were given a cup of legos to custom build their own car.  

They took this job very seriously...
Once they had their cars complete, Travis (our Lego go-to-guy) set up a ramp so the boys could take turns racing their cars.  They were able to tweak their designs to enhance speed.  (they were little engineers)
Then they were given a cup of Legos and had to guess how many were inside -- the winner got to fill a cup with Legos from the famous LEGO WALL!
Next, they each got to choose a Lego kit to build and take home.
And FINALLY, they were able to browse and purchase MORE LEGOS!

You could say we left a few empty shelves - they were in 7 year old heaven!
We had lunch at California Pizza Kitchen
Cheers birthday boy!
Our little man will be 7 years old on the 30th!
