Lego Mania

The Boy turned eleven last weekend and he loves Legos. So I threw a Lego Mania Birthday Party of Destiny.

There were mini-fig cups (curtesy of The Dancing Queen, who sat and drew each and every one)

IMGP1186There were paper legos everywhere – on the table…

… and in the trees.

Even the gift was disguised as a giant Lego!IMGP1181

There were real Legos, too. We had a Lego car building contest –

The cars were the party favors so there was incentive to use the interesting pieces – knowing that they could keep whatever they could race spurred the kids to think outside the box. Some of the cars were very creative!

It was a really fun day, and the weather was beautiful and the food was good and the company was fabulous.

Happy Birthday, Boy! I can’t believe you’re already eleven!
