The other day I noticed my son was very quiet for several hours. I would look in his room occasionally and see him standing over his Lego table. Later, he came to me and said, "Mom, I want to show you something." Lo and behold this is what I saw:
|I just love the crosshatch pattern on the roof.|
He explained to me this was for a Lego contest. (He had just received his Lego Magazine the day or two before and had found out about the contest.) The challenge from Lego was to build a scene from any of the Lord of the Ring movies. He constructed "The Prancing Pony". (A Tavern Inn from The Lord of the Rings, Fellowship of the Ring) He took it apart before I could get more pictures. The top floor of the inn lifts off to reveal the sleeping quarters for guests. There is a barn outside as well as a chicken coop.
|Here is an aerial view.|
|Inside the Prancing Pony, guests are having a chat by the fire.|
If I were forced to throw away every toy my boys own and leave only one...that decision would take me about 2 seconds: "Take everything else, but leave the Legos!"
