    Thank You to everyone who voted for my 5yr old son’s Weeds entry with Legos!
    This is Canyon’s first time in the show and we are very proud of him. We just moved
    here from Alaska and this event got us all as a family exploring the
    desert that we now call home. We will be doing The show again!
