In Bellevue last night we braved the crowds to see Snowflake Lane. I thought it might not be busy because it was a weeknight and school isn’t out yet, but it was still pretty packed. It has changed a lot, even since last year.
In the past few years the best spots to watch with kids were nearby the little drummer boy stands so they could see the drummers drumming but this year it is better to be out in the street because that is where most of the action is.
The boys loved it and were thrilled by all the roving mascots. And we even got a few shopping minutes in.
I found something at the Lego store that is an absolute life-saver for my fingernails. They need to put this in a more prominent spot.
This is a Lego Brick Separator and I think it might be my new best friend. I was even thinking of picking up a bunch and gifting them with a bottle of wine for boy-mom friends. Oh, Lego. We have a love-hate relationship.
(PS. I try to steer clear of any of the16+ years Lego building sets in the store because if and when my guys think they want one of those I’m going to need to find a class in lego-building; I was okay with Duplo but even the basic kits they’ve been getting recently are TRICKY!)
