It’s been too long since we have picked up the camera and taken pictures of the kids just hanging around, doing their thing. The days and weeks go by, the routine churns on, and if we’re not out doing something “fun” or special, I often don’t think to pick up the camera. I know the everyday moments involving legos and dominoes and couch forts are just as special as when we get out and do something a little extra, I just need to capture them a little more often.
Lately, the everyday moments often involve legos… because they are played with every day. Every single day.
The boys build spaceships and vehicles and blasters and even houses full of gadgets and often play with them for the rest of the day. When I see how much creativity is put into their building, I completely understand why all the “best toys” articles have them somewhere in the list. Yup, I find legos everywhere (and I do mean everywhere), but it’s a small price to pay. Eleanor just watches on but as long as she is where the boys are, she is happy. And quite a little ham for the camera, it turns out.
