July 13 2017: Kaedins Minecraft MOC was featured at Philly Brickfest 2017 and was invited to be on display at Minefaire across the country. I was interviewed about his build (unfortunately he wasn't feeling well at the time) at Brickfest and a great YouTube video has been made about it. Check out pics, video and more about Kaedin's massive Minecraft MOC at our Custom Creations page.
April 1, 2017: It's no joke- I'm starting off April by getting new business cards printed (So we're ready for Lego-hunting yard sale season) and updating some of the pages here throughout the day! I updated our contact page with our email address, added Brickfest information to the "Our Custom Creations" page (we'll be sharing photos of the things we're displaying once they are unveiled at the event later in April!).

Jan 20, 2017: I finished publishing our first dozen Hauls- we went back to 2014 and started in reverse, adding all of our best (and worst) Lego buys - documenting where we got them and how much we spent - it's a really fascinating history of our collection! We finished getting the first several months of purchases listed, including our best Caveat Emptor (Buyer Beware) story is now published. Be sure to check out the Hauls Page which is no longer blank - it will be added to and updated frequently!
In the near future: We're going to be adding a new Collection page called "PolyBags" that lists all of the Polybags / Mini-sets (unopened) that we have in our collection - plus we're creating a new, seperate page with a list of anything Lego related that we have available for trade (as well as information about what we're looking to trade FOR!). Next, we'll be working on a detailed Minifigures page, also under Our Collection header - and two Maps pages - one to track everywhere our SigFigs have been on thier #SigFigAdventures, as well as a Map of all of the Lego Stores worldwide- keeping track of all the ones we've visited! These sites will soon be online - so check back often to see them when they go up!

May 8, 2016: We've been working hard to update Kristie's blog with some of the posts she's written about living with EDS, getting diagnosed and living with chronic pain. Please look under the "Living and blogging with EDS".
May 1, 2016: Eleven months ago, we got tickets to BrickFest2016 at the Oak, PA Convention Center. We were looking forward to attending, but due to last minute health issues, I was hesitant to reach out to all the folks we might run into - and because we were incognito - hardly anyone actually spotted us in the crowds. We had a good time, got to speak to some folks, but we've definitely come to realize I can't do events like that without a power-chair in the future. We're forgot to take our sigfigs though, so there were tragically no changes to Adventures In Lego!
March 24, 2016: We returned from our trip to Florida, and will be posting photos of the trip soon - find out where we'll be next, and meet up with us, or make a suggestion to let us know about a Lego event or destination that we just can't miss: Adventures In Lego!
