They’re everywhere. Ask any parent of a seven-year old kid. They’ll tell you.
First it’s Thomas The Train sets, then it’s construction Mighty Machine vehicles, Hot Wheels, monster trucks, and then the Big One.
They’re a part of parenthood.
I hadn’t known much about the LEGO world until my son decided he liked them … now he loves them … and they’re everywhere.
Despite his LEGO storage set and cabinet, I still find helmets, light sabers, blasters, Batarangs, sirens, and lone pieces scattered about. I find them next to backpacks, under the table, in seat cushions, behind cabinets, and under my bare feet in the middle of the night.
But now, I’ve learned to find the awesome potential in these little plastic pieces.
So much so that we’ve made multiple trips to Legoland and continue to do so every year. But just recently I was able to add another LEGO adventure and it blew my son’s LEGO mind. He came back with a burst of imagination and even more enthusiasm to build, dream, build, and dream some more. I definitely got a high-five at the end of the day.

There have been plenty since #32, but I’ve forgotten to post about them, just like any parent, I’m always playing catch-up.
But I did manage to make it to this one. We missed it last year because I had no idea it existed, but I was made aware of it and so was my son.
So The Guats went on a field trip to discover what the imagination can do with small interlocking pieces of plastic.
Apparently a lot.
These are just the highlights …
