Exploring Lego Brick Fest Atlanta 2017 – Soulful RV Family

 

 

With our nephew about to turn 14, we were on the lookout for something unique for his birthday. I was thrilled to find discounted tickets to the Atlanta Lego Brick Fest. And since KJ (our 7 year old) is a Lego fan, it made for a great “guy’s outing”. So I decided to purchase 3 VIP tickets, yet keep it a secret to surprise the boys!

Lego VIP Badges

 

We arrived to the Cobb Center and the boys only knew that we were going somewhere to celebrate JV’s birthday. As they asked questions about where we were headed or what we were going to do, I continued to feed them false clues. Boy was that fun!

 

VIP passes gave us early entry and it was worth the extra few dollars. Upon entering the boys were overwhelmed with all there was to do and see. Their first choice, build a Lego racer and race it. Sadly, neither JV nor KJ won their race.

 

Onto the vendors… There was something for every Lego fan. Whether you were just getting started or looking for the hard to find mini figure. I handed the boys $10 each to shop. I warned them to shop around but they couldn’t resist buying from the first vendor they came across. Soon they realized that they overpaid for the first miniature Lego. From that point forward, they visited every vendor before spending another dime. Lesson taught and lesson learned.

KJ enjoyed playing 9 holes of Lego mini golf. He scored 2 holes in ones! Both boys created Lego Murals and hung them on the Lego wall.

Look at what I made! – KJ

 

The best part of the day, at least for me, was stopping by a vendor that had Lego flower kits. You see JV is great with Lego’s, but not so focused on school and his future. I’ve always tried to tell him that you can find a way to make money off of something you love. I always share with my kids…

“If you love what you do, a day seems like an hour, but if you don’t, then an hour will seem like a day”

 

Well, we stopped at one vendor and I asked him how he turned his love of Legos into a business. His advice was priceless. JV and  KJ listened, but I’m not sure if they got it yet. The seed was planted; I just have to keep watering to see if it will grow.

Shopping for mini Lego’s

 

After spending over four hours exploring, playing, and learning this Lego Brick Fest, the boys were ready for some food. Before we left I had one more treat for the boys. I gave them a $25 budget each to buy one Lego kit to take home. I was so proud of them as they visited each Lego area to maximize their money.

 

It was a great birthday present for JV. He was so thankful and happy for the experience. KJ had a huge smile on his face as well. Another great day with my little guys, not to mention, I got to play with Legos too!
