What The Blethering Boys Are Playing Today: Lego Fort

As it was a long weekend this weekend, Dave took some time off to look after Thomas while I was at work. And the boys both love spending time with Dad, so Ethan stayed off nursery too.

What a fabulous time they had!

The highlight of the day has to be a visit from Auntie Jacqui and a new toy (a Lego truck!), after a spot of lunch at a bar.

Thanks Auntie Jacqui!

Lucky boys!

As with all new toys, this fuelled their imaginations and led play into new territory.  Dad, Jacqui and the kids all built an amazing Lego Castle!

Check it out!

The Lego men had a good day too by all accounts.

They had a couple of new friends added to their number.

Lego Marge is pretty cool.

So is Lego Grandpa Simpson!

Our kids have never watched The Simpsons, so this is definitely one for us adults.  I can see us trying to collect them - they are really cool and a total ride down nostalgia lane for Dave and I! 

Happy boy!
It was great to come home from a long day at work to see two happy faces and a calm and cool Daddy.

Family time is the best time.  Next time I hope I get to join in too!


  1. I loved Legos as a little girl. I had the pink and purple deluxe set along with every girlie Lego set they had. My girls kind of like them but no where near how much I loved themi brought them in hopes of sharing my childhood love with them

    1. I won Lego when I was wee from a children's magazine - my kids have it now. It was the best toy ever! So adaptable...although I never built anything as awesome as this! He he! Mine was always a really small, basic, house with a space for a badly made car! :p

  2. Absolutely love their Lego fort! Awesome job. :) Our daughter loves playing with Legos, we may need to build a fort soon. :) Great post.

    1. Thanks Stephanie! We have tons of lego - I always imagine building a playhouse or something with it! Watch this space!

  3. Oh wow! This is a common scene in our house as well. Son & Daddy playing with their Lego! Such an amazing toys as it helps you build and express whats in your head. Always a nice day when the kids are creating & bonding! #LetKidsBeKids
