Well, the Raleigh LEGO® KidsFest is currently underway
and going strong! When my family and I arrived in Raleigh
(after a two and a half hour car ride), the sign stated that
sessions had been sold out ahead of time! Not surprising.
LEGO® sets and everything that goes with them are all the

remote control cars, made of bricks of course! My three year
old seemed to enjoy LEGO® city the most. She was able to
