Everyone got a good night's sleep and woke up seeming well on Sunday so we decided to go ahead with our plan and got ready to head out for the day. Our first stop was the NHL All Star Fan Fair for some hockey fun. We got there and were immediately all overwhelmed with all the stuff to do, loud music and people that were there. We figured we would just start on one end and work our way around the whole event.
The boys had a lot of fun shooting pucks at goals, playing Foosball hockey, trying on professional uniforms and playing some street hockey. We also got to see the Stanley Cup (although we didn't wait in the gigantic line to go up and touch it). And we saw a bunch of mascots including the Geico gecko, the Dallas Stars mascot, the Jersey Devil and the NHL Angry Bird. We also ate a delicious lunch of hot dogs and pizza, although Daniel was upset there was no funnel cake at this "fair."

We decided to stick it out and waited about 45 minutes in line to see the Legos. There was an exhibit along the way so Adrian took the boys in there for a while while I waited. They also had about half the wait in a theater so you could watch Lego shorts while you waited in line. Some of them were pretty cool, and the boys loved them. We really enjoyed seeing the giant Lego creation the artists made, especially the familiar sights from downtown Columbus.
The day really wore us out! Zak fell asleep on the car ride home and we all went to bed early Sunday night. The boys got an extra long weekend since today is a snow day. They were able to sleep in and I didn't see them until almost 9:00 this morning. Everyone seems to be feeling better so we're ready to tackle our week!
