Labor Day Weekend 2016

We decided to do some fun things on Labor Day weekend. The North Star Mall hosted the Lego Americana Roadshow for a few weeks and we went to see it on Saturday.
 It was fun for all of us to see the details, especially in the different-themed scenes.
 Of course, the greatest works (in size, for sure) were the American historical landmarks: Independence Hall, the Statue of Liberty, the White House, the Washington Monument, etc. My favorite was the detail on the Supreme Court building.
  Most of the pictures aren't too great; and a picture couldn't do it justice anyway.
You might notice the face Ellie's been practicing in a bunch of the pictures.
On Monday, we went to the Cave Without a Name. We had heard it was pretty nifty and we thoroughly enjoyed our private tour. As much as I love remembering our time in caves, I've gotten so I don't like taking pictures. For one thing, they never look as cool as it really is. For another, you miss the experience when you try to take pictures. However, the kids loved the gift shop while we waited and we had to take a picture of this amazing seat Natalie's sitting in. It used to be an old Indian canoe, and it's been bent into a chair!
