MAC LEGO Exhibit and Chinese Food

On Saturday, we visited the MAC LEGO exhibit.  It wasn't quite as neat as I imagined, but admission included other exhibits plus the historic Campbell house.  They had a fun little store, too.  I wish we could have spent a bit more time there, but Kylen's knee was bothering him.

7-foot-tall rose

8-foot-tall hummingbird.  Height must include the base, eh?  :)

They had several posters on the wall.  Art appreciation helped us recognize them.  Know who this is?

I think I know why the bike is way up high.  Too tempting!

They have a contest, and this is one of the entries.  Visitors can vote for their favorite.  This was mine.

The lily pads are made of LEGOs!  They're huge!

They had an interesting exhibit with artifacts from the American West.

A ballistic missile launch control console!  Kylen said it reminds him of the original Star Trek show.

A feminist's political button bag.  Interesting.  One button says peace, while the missile launcher is in the background.

A case of artificial eyes, typical of medical supplies sold by pharmacies in 1900.  Next to it is a prosthetic leg and hand.

Next, we strolled over to the Campbell House.  Kylen said it inspired him to write a novel from the period.  It gave meaning to the word "rambling."  Around every corner was another room, hall, or set of stairs.  I didn't get to read all the information available, but I did see a picture of an ornate chair the family owned that doubled as a music box!  When someone sat down, it played "Here Comes the Bride."


Kylen kept wearing his museum pass on his chin, and it was giving Greg fits.

We opted to have an early dinner, which turned out to be an excellent idea.  Our favorite Asian restaurant was almost empty when we arrived but packed by the time we left.  We had a hard time reaching the door through all the people standing around waiting to be seated.


This was Kylen's fortune!!!  Lol!!  At first I thought it would have been better if Greg or I had gotten it, but then I realized that wouldn't be good either!

Bye, P. F. Chang's!  Until next time!
