levi turns 4!



My nephew Levi turns 4 this weekend so last Saturday Jenny & Joshua threw a party for him. It was his birthday party so naturally he got gifts including the hilariously cool ride on toy tractor from the family. My mom never wanted my sister and I to feel left out on birthdays when we were younger and has decided to carry on this tradition with our kids. So, this year for Levi's birthday, Espen got a new Lego set. Espen was pretty excited, thrilled to get this new gift but if he only knew how excited I was! We got home from the party and pretty much immediately got to work on this 354 piece set. I think it's hilarious that Espen is 3.5 years old, I am 31 and the box says for ages 7-14. I told Jeremy that when I am 68 years old I am going to tell Espen, 'When I was your age I used to LOVE playing with Lego's'. Ha!

It took maybe an hour to get the whole Atlantis 'Gateway of the Squid' set put together and it took Espen about 2 minutes for him to take it all apart. Espen fell asleep on the couch watching Lost in Space (another wonderful gift from my mom) and left his Lego's ALL OVER our bedroom floor. At around midnight I decided it was time to go to bed so I grabbed a baggy and began to put Lego pieces away. That is until, I picked up a couple of pieces and snapped them together. The next thing you know, it's 1:30 in the morning, I am on the floor and Atlantis, once again was built!

I left the completed set up on our dresser and one of the first things Espen said to me in the morning was, 'See mom, you see what I put together, you see?'. What a little scamp, I bet he was secretly weirded out that Atlantis magically put itself together.
