Great LEGO Exhibit in Topeka, Kansas

I enjoyed having my nephews for a week while their parents were in Italy. I tried to come up with one fun thing to do each day to get out of the house. I didn't want them to be to bummed out about being with Aunt Amy and not in Italy with their folks. One day we drove to Topeka to the Mulvane Art Museum on the Washburn University campus. We went to "The Art of the Brick". There were 28 LEGO brick sculptures by New York artist Nathan Sawaya. He is a lawyer turned artist. If you have a chance to see this exhibit ....GO. Grab your kids, neighbor's kids or be the big kid. I think you will enjoy each and every sculpture. It makes me want to go out and buy some LEGO's! We couldn't decide on a favorite. Here are some of the sculptures for you to see how amazing they are.

This one above is called "Cracked".

The sculpture is building himself in the one below.

I hope you all have a wonderful 4th of July weekend full of great food, family and of course sewing! Amy
