Mission Impossible to Finished

Family By July 3, 2016 Tags: , , 15 Comments

All I am hearing in my head right now is…the Mission Impossible theme song.  I know I will not be able to type out the tune, so I will let you hum along in your head with me.

This is an update to a previous post.lego15

Back in December my (grown) sons received the S.H.I.L.D. Helicarrier Lego set, with close to 3000 pieces, as a Christmas gift.  They were beyond thrilled.  If you didn’t get a chance to read that post, you can find it here.lego8-resized

 

 

It took these two professional engineers almost 6 months to put it together.  In all fairness, they both work full time jobs, one has a wife and two small children and the other has a girlfriend and a new YouTube channel.  These things tend to get in the way of serious FUN and ADVENTURE. However, not to let go of a challenge – they kept after it until it was done.lego9-resized

My youngest son was always the kid that played with all the Lego people, packing them into every space possible on a model.  The older one, not so much, he was more into the model itself.  Thus, the close-up pictures of the Lego people were taken by my youngest, while the table shot was provided by my oldest.  It was a great team effort.lego11-resizeid

 

For those of you looking for a good family project – Lego has a solution for you.  The Avenger’s Helicarrier, it’s better than a 1000 piece puzzle (times 3)!  It will keep them busy for months.

The Lego Surprise

Family By December 26, 2015 Tags: , , , , 8 Comments

When our children become adults, it seems harder to find gifts (especially within the established budget) that will delight them. I give it a good effort each year; I like to think I have more victories, than defeats. However, this year my daughter-in-law takes the high honors of presenting my sons (one is 25, the other, her husband, is 30) with a gift that made them act like 12 year old’s, when they opened it.

Nestled back behind the Christmas tree sat a large package wrapped in green paper and a big red bow. My husband, who is in charge of handing out gifts, was given instructions not to give it out. Once the ‘opening gifts’ dust had settled, the wrapping paper had been cleaned up and everyone was settling in with a cup of cocoa, my daughter-in-law gave the approval to have it brought out. Creating even more curiosity, she informed the group it was for my two sons. She then explained the process she went thought to find it, hide it and wrap it, undetected. They tore off the paper to reveal…the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier Lego set from the Marvel series. They were thrilled.  Both of them are serious Lego and Avenger fans.  Plans were immediately made to put it together. Although, that process may take a while, the set has almost 3000 pieces! resized-lego3resized-lego2

Boys will grow into men, but Lego boys will ALWAYS be Lego boys!
