So we gave Mason "big boy" Legos (as opposed to the Duplo building blocks) this summer, and he was so excited. He went right to work.
OK, maybe Daddy went right to work! The first project was to replicate the house shown on the box (don't let Rip tell you he didn't love doing it!),
then they made a flying boat, complete with sound effects,
and of course, a "mini-Mason" figurine to live in the house.
Seriously, where's the fun in assembling a character or a vehicle according to the instructions when instead, this whole pile of miscellaneous, beautiful, primary-colored Lego blocks can build anything a kid desires? (Or anything his nostalgic parents desire?)
Which leads me to the question, "what will you build?"
