When we're not busily building away with you fine folks under the zoom of a Blue Angel plane or beside a high speed race (more on that later!), the East Team and minifigure like to go out and see the sites of the local cities! We recently visited the the hometown of "The King of Rock and Roll," Memphis, TN. We had a great time seeing everything, but we think Memphis had an even better time seeing us, thanks to our own "King of the Bricks," minifigure!
At the famous Peabody Hotel, we stopped to see the Peabody ducks daily grand entrance, and the official Peabody Duckmaster was so excited to see minifigure that he made him a special guest of honor!
After stopping for a quick photo shoot in the streets of Memphis, we headed over to Elvis's home and had fun looking at all the old cars and memorabilia.
We love traveling the country, and we're not done yet! Be sure to come by the LEGO Experience Tour and play a game of "Favorite Family Vacation" with us in the Family Challenge (a game-show style family fun challenge) so that you can show us where YOU love to travel!

Click! Click! Click! Click! Those were the sounds of pictures being taken of 6 year old Robert Richardson, a local LEGO superstar as he walked up to the LEGO Experience in San Antonio, TX. You see Robert won a national LEGO contest for building a Star Wars spacecraft within an hour. When he entered his "Anakin's Attack Shuttle" in July he told his mom he knew he would win he just needed to know the date when they would announce the winner.
Imagine his mother's surprise when he received his congratulatory letter. Her response," I wasn't surprised. He is really confident in his abilities." She also mentioned that Robert aspires to be a LEGO Master Builder when he grows up. Robert was quoted as saying in the San Antonio Express, a local paper highlighting his achievement, "I'd rather play with LEGO bricks than watch TV."
The beauty of the story? Robert started building with some new builders on site at the LEGO Experience Tour. He showed them some of his tips and tricks for building and they were all soon having a blast together!
Well we must admit Robert is on the right path to becoming a Master Builder and we applaud his efforts. Keep it up Robert!
And to all those new builders out there, why not pick up a brick!?

The East Team was welcomed with a bang this week to Pensacola, Florida by Hurricane-turned-Tropical-Storm Ida! Through all the torrential rainfall and high-speed winds, the LEGO Experience Tour's will could not be broken! We went to sleep with rain pounding our windows, but we woke up to sunshine peeking through the clouds and some impressive waves to watch in the Gulf of Mexico!
