The Art of the Brick

Thanks for all of the good wishes. We really appreciate them and hope that it will be quite a long time before anyone needs to offer us condolences again.
Before we had to head to New York for the funeral we were having a really nice weekend full of family and fun. We were in Philadelphia to visit Hubbo's cousins. We were greeted with ice cream and warm brownies late Friday night and we all had a blast laughing and talking and snacking.

The excuse for the visit was seeing an exhibit called the Art of the Brick at the American Swedish Historical Museum. It was very cool but smaller than we expected. The whole exhibit was contained in one room.

DQ was even able to get some work done on her family history project for school. She questioned our cousins, an aunt and uncle. We were amazed to find out that she shares a birthday with Hubbo's grandfather. We couldn't believe that nobody mentioned it until now.

Isn't this cool?

That's a pretty neat exhibit. I sincerely wish your family has nothing but happiness from today forward.

Are these Legos? I bet you could do very similar projects using Legos. Legos as an artform... a new medium.

That is so weird to see, but very creative, too.
