Ready.... steady.... go!!

We??ve spent today with Kevin??s parents which meant it was time for the most important competition of the year ?? the Christmas Lego Challenge! Every year Kevin??s parents buy three matching Lego vehicles which Kevin, his brother Martin and I put together against the clock and against each other. I evidently spent too much of my childhood playing with Lego as I almost always win ?? and today was no exception. I smashed last year??s record time by completing my Moon Buggy in three minutes and twenty five seconds ?? a full thirty seven seconds faster than in 2010!

I hope everyone here on Photoblog has had a wonderful day and that you all have a fantastic 2012. Happy Christmas!

Such concentration - we take this Lego business very seriously!

This is darling, Helen! Our school has a Lego League and goes to national competitions each year, many of which they win. They could use a new coach, if you're available, oh great Lego Legend!
