(I don't have a time machine so middle man helped out with this picture. Apparently every house needs a dinosaur. It also turns out that we need more DUPLO to finish a house!)
The girl grew up and got a holiday job selling ice cream at a fantastic theme park filled with LEGO bricks.
She went to university and met a man who was a black belt in karate and studied Economics.
She fell in love and married him. He bought her Harry Potter LEGO for Christmas. She bought him Star Wars LEGO. A few years later they had 3 gorgeous little boys together.
Their favourite place to go for a family outing was the theme park the girl used to work in. They particularly liked the pirate show.
Her young boys had a long Christmas list filled with LEGO!
As well as playing with LEGO with her boys, the girl loved having a strong coffee and blogging.
I'm afraid as fairy tales go this might not be the best. No evil wolf, no fire breathing dragon or a fairy godmother.
But this story is actually my happily ever after.
So as you may have guessed we are slightly LEGO obsessed in this house. My boys started their LEGO obsession with DUPLO. They have some vintage pieces from my childhood and lots of modern characters too. I think the picture below shows how much DUPLO has changed in 30 years!
Writing this post has made me realise how much of an impact these coloured building bricks have made on my life and that of the boys. We are lucky to live near LEGOLAND and visit regularly. Star Wars Weekend was a massive hit with big man this year. We celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary at the Brick Brother's Restaurant.
We also celebrated middle man's birthday at the hotel and I found myself making a pirates of skeleton bay treasure chest complete with golden LEGO bricks.
Big man's birthday and Christmas list is full of the Star Wars range and I can see his room soon looking like the miniland experience! I even bought my Dad some LEGO TECKNIC last year for Christmas proving that LEGO really is for all ages!
Next year we have the release of The LEGO Movie to look forward too. I think if you watch the clip you will agree that it looks "Awesome!"
There is one thing however, that I don't like about LEGO. There is always one small piece that manages to escape the box. Treading on LEGO really hurts! What are your LEGO memories? Did you love it as a child and now love it as a parent?
This post is my entry to the Tots100 Lego Movie competition.
