Train and Lego Display
Sometimes you don't know quite what to expect - $5 admission at Newport on the Levee gets you in to a train and Lego display, visit with Santa, and (the clincher) an hour at Gameworks. The grands were fascinated by this Lego city, which takes 12 hours to set up and 3 hours to dismantle. In chunks, not brick by brick. We spent quite a bit of time at the various displays and it was definitely worth the price of admission. The Lego city is larger than the picture, this is just the biggest piece. It was made by a family.
There were also displays by the local Lego club - who knew there was a club for this? Here is Aaron admiring a replica of Cincinnati's Music Hall. On the other side is, what else, the inside of Music Hall.
We spent the obligatory hour at Gameworks, then took pictures outside by the tree. On the way home, we stopped at Graeter's - the peppermint ice cream is so unbelievable, at least according to me. The kids are traditionalists. Vanilla with chocolate chunks, and plain chocolate.
