Barack Obama’s not Such a BIG Deal!

In many ways the Obamas are giants among us; bigger than life, built up by a weary nation and our expectations for the future.  With the whole world watching and so many hopes hanging on the promise of a new beginning, Barack and Michelle hold our dreams in their hands.

Here in San Diego, we can see the Obamas on a smaller scale.  As only the brick builders of Legoland can do, Tuesday’s Presidential Inauguration is being commemorated at Miniland USA with tiny depictions of the new First Family and an entourage of onlookers.  They are so cute you could cry, not just because of what they represent but out of sheer amazement for the creative genius, patience and detail that went into making the display.  Brick by brick, the miniature masterpiece is a remarkable homage to the here and now as well as things to come.

Most of us will not be in Washington, D.C. for this week’s ceremony but we can pay tribute wherever we are.  Don’t let the day pass without notice.  It is important to mark this moment with friends and family; to be active participants in one of the most significant events in American history.

Tip from me to you: The San Diego North Convention and Visitors Bureau has an Online Limited Time Offer for one day Legoland tickets; discount combo tickets and gift cards can also be purchased on the site.
