It is probably no shock that, since I have three boys (Kenny and Jacob and of course....my husband Aaron) that Legos are very big in my house! We had quite a collection going LONG before the boys were born. They now play with them nearly every day! Kenny, especially, is into making mechanically functioning things such as garbage trucks and forklifts. He recently created this "lego city" that I found quite impressive:
In the above picture, you see a road, which he says is the main road near where we live, with a bridge going across and all. On this side of the road, he built a small house and on this same side to the right is a stoplight. On the other side of the road is a tree and to the other side of the bridge is the police station with a police car! Behind that, all of the free standing things are people that Jacob made for the city! Pretty cool, huh?
Kenny decided that since that went so well, he should give a video tutorial on how to build this semi truck:So, for your entertainment, just in case you ever need to know how to build one, here are the instructions, Kenny-style.
Ya, sometimes it is pretty darn cool to have boys.
