A Walk Down Memory Lane-Lego Boy

Joinin' Erica @ Scottsville again today on A Walk Down Memory Lane.

For years now, I regularly find the most interesting images on my camera...



These are typical pictures that I find. Creations that Scout/Lego Boy just has to capture on camera... just too good to forget.




He used his birthday money to buy more Lego this year.




Will it be the last? We are growing up quickly these days.




But he continues to be so sweet and kind.




Crazy about my Lego Boy.

Well how old is YOUR LEGO BOY? Because MY LEGO BOY is 12 and still LOVES THEM! I too have found many the Lego contraption on my camera. I never know what I'll find on there though. Pictures up nostrils, down throats, toes, fingers, dirt, leaves, bugs and yes, LEGOS!

Thanks for joining me on my walk. =0)

This is why Legos remain a classic.

Enjoy this time while it's here. When they outgrow Lego's they seem to be stuck between toys and employment. I remember the many times I stepped on Lego's in my bare feet or found them chewed by the dog.

Thanks for sharing!

My Lego Boy is 10, and spends every penny that he earns, asks for them as presents...he loves to build and that makes this mama sooo happy! His room is literally filled with his creations, sometimes he takes one down and re-configures it...what an imagination! Hope you are having a terrific and "ana-less" day...giggle....Remember, take it easy for a while :)

He is still so sweet. I can not wait until we can spend time together over the summer. I think little Rooney will have fun hanging around a "big" boy.

Rachel said...

Aww how sweet! I love that he wants to capture them on the camera! How creative!

We have more legos than I can count....Hope you are feeling better everyday....

Glad you liked me new look.

Legos are one toy I don't think you can ever grow out of!

Those are great lego creations.

I find strange pictures on my camera too. Cracks me up.

He And Me + 3 said...

He is good with those legos. I can't wait until my boy starts playing with legos.

Mighty M said...

Those are some fantastic creations!

Oh dear.. I have a file folder on my computer set up just for "Bionicles". And now it's Star Wars, and they've overtaken his bathtub (I never knew a 9 year old boy could spend an hour and a half in the bath.. but he can). Save those pictures.. I have a feeling that, not only will YOU love looking at them some day, but Lego Boy's boys will, too!

legos are the BEST!!! my gma used to own a daycare and would go to yard sales and buy legos...she's got about 4 one gallon tubs! i love it when my cousins dump them out! i get right down in the floor and play! :)

That is adorable that he takes pictures of his little creations with your camera. I think I'd have to put all those pictures in a scrapbook...the legobook. :)

Cool creations!

Isn'y it so sweet to find photos your kids took! Especially when it is unexpected. It always makes me giggle! Lovely little lego men!

My youngest (11 year old) still loves Lego's and is always wanting me to take pictures of his 'creations'. What a great memory to have pictures of something they created! Thanks for sharing!

So sweet honey! It's like a little bonus only for you! His own little subliminal message to you! And, I love having sweet boys. Madeline has always been sweet but I am so glad Max himself is also very sweet! It's an amazing start to a great life and wonderful tools to always have with them.
how are YOU feeling by the way? I hope all is better! ;)

Hope said...

My son loves legos, and buys them with his own money too…they surely are pricey thought. I think they are a creative way to spend time…better than the computer.

What a coincidence you wrote about this, babe. I've been thinking about it too. I realized that it could very well be his last Lego set, and the thought makes me want to cry...

Manly tears, though.

Morgan said...

That first picture of the lego guys is funny! My 5 year old likes to take pictures of his Duplo creations too. He enjoys building models of the digestive system and obstacle courses for dogs out of the blocks.

When I think of my boys getting older, it makes me cry. They're my little children to love and teach now, but I know someday they will be grown and moved out, not needing their mom as much. It makes me sad. It's a good reminder to love them and hold them a lot while I can.

*So if her room was pink then, what color is it now? Is she still into pink?

Casey said...

I hate that my little one was never into things like that. Maybe it's a girl thing.

We had those lovely Polly Pockets. Yuck.

I find weird pics on my camera from time to time. Not cute little pictures of dolls and toys, but WEIRD pics. Earlier this year, I went to put my digital photos on my laptop, only to discover that my 5 year old had taken photos of our dog trying to "mate" with an old shoe! Talk about a shocker!

renee said...

:) it's not a big deal having class in the summer. it's just one of those things...luckily it's only and 8 weeker. then i'll have i think maybe a 2 week window and start 4 new ones. :)
ps. the blonde roots don't show...too often. but it sure is funny when they do. :)

We bought so many Legos that I felt like we owned stock in the company! We still have buckets of them around! Guess they'll be for the grandchildren! LOL
