Last month we took a trip to Hartford, CT to attend the World War II Brick 2016 event. The World War II event is dedicated to modeling historic scenes, vehicles and weaponry using Legos. It is absolutely amazing to see these pieces in person. My son saved for months leading up to the event so he could buy some Brick Arms, including a Russian Tank.
Here’s some pictures from the event. Unfortunately, it will not be held IN CT next year and will be too far for us to attend. I’m so glad we decided to make the trip this year. We made it a fun weekend and stayed overnight.
There was lots of shopping from tanks, to Brick Arms and custom military mini figs. There were also games and the builder signed kits.
Since Connecticut is over 3 hours away, we decided to stay at the Radison Hotel overnight. We went into the pool and had a nice dinner in the hotel. They had some nice gluten free options. I had the gluten free burger with garlic string beans and salad with Italian Dressing and it was delicous.
Here’s a a cute picture of my husband at dinner.
The next day we had a long drive home. This trip was so much fun and my son Davey and I made some vlogs … check them out below.
