Lego Adventure

Nathan got a little Lego set for his birthday and it has turned into a daily favorite. Honestly, I think Nicole loves it even a little more than Nathan does. Mostly she builds the trucks and machines that are in the little 'manual' of ideas that came with it. She is getting to be darn good at following those instructions. Nathan loves for Nicole to build him things. Or me. Or Lauren. He can 'fix' broken things but still isn't quite up to creating new things.

Yesterday before we headed to church, we had a little bit of time to play with the Legos. After building a big super dumper truck that used all the wheels and both treads, I let Nicole and Nathan build things while I started building something out of what they didn't want. Very quickly, it turned into a Segway. Cool. Then I built a dude to ride it. I am pretty proud of them, so we had a little photo shoot.

First, we have the dude and his brand new Segway.

His first ride didn't end well.

That's awesome!

Legos are probably one of the best toys out there. My kids love them. Looks like Nathan and Nicole are quite the little inventors (with the help of daddy!) Love it!!
