Happy Mother's Day!

I don't know about you but mother's day was awesome! It started a few days early with all the boys heading to the mall to get me a very cool ipod docking station. I have wanted one of those for a while. I like to listen to podcasts and it is much easier to listen through speakers than the ear buds and do stuff with the kids. A multi-tasker..... I know.

But next it was on to the lego festival. All I can say is amazing! The talent these adults (and children) have to create some of these creations is unbelieveable. Christians favorite was a boy who makes transformers. I must admit this was my favorite too. :) Christian has tried numerous times to make transformers with his legos but the inspiration from this kid took it to a new level. I mean all his transformers were transformable! All made of lego pieces...with 
out a guide or anything! If you look closely at one of the pictures you will see a grey transformer all the way at the far left...that is the one that turned into the gun the boy is holding. Amazing!

 I have added a few pictures of the fun and included the one of christian sneeking the skittle from the lego tray of a guys candy depenser (which I will add had a color sensor so it dispensed the color of your choice by chosing the matching color button.) It was meant for the boy waiting patiently in line and while taking the picture I didn't notice christian was ready to snag it as soon as it came out. Oops! 


And last were the hilarious videos people made with legos. Some of them Christian has seen on lego.com but most were new and again..talented.

I may have to post the video I took of the boy transforming one of his transformers at another time. I don't know what my phone/blogger can handle at once. I am still a little new to this posting via phone but so far so good.
