We made a trip to the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum last week and had a wonderful time. The weather was perfect and the boys loved it. They had 26 lego sculptures using more than 450,000 lego bricks. It was seriously amazing. Many of the sculptures took several hundred hours to build and all of the sculptures were things in nature. Some of our favorites were the butterfly, peacock, and dragon fly. It was worth the trip out to the arboretum and fun for all of the boys. After walking around to see most of the exhibits, we played in the nature areas where the boys built forts in the woods, played with sand and water, and had lots of time for uninterrupted imaginative play.
In other news, we are settling into the new house and have met many of the neighbors. It has really been a good fit for us and we are loving the added space we have. Bath time has been easier with an additional bathroom and simply coming in the door is easier with a separate mudroom and laundry room for all our stuff and number of people. School begins after labor day so we are excited to meet our teachers this week and see many of our friends. We are not too excited about homework and getting up early, but a bit more structure will probably be beneficial for all of us.
