My son and I decided to spend a little quality time together and build him a lego tractor. He had already built one last week but decided to take it apart. So, we decided to build another one today. Mom even helped out! It was a good time for all. Just wanted to share some pics. Keith   :wave:

Great memories being built. My son is just getting into legos and it is surprising what all he can come up with..

Yeah right. Good try with that story.

You got grounded by the Mrs. because you bought another tractor yesterday, right?

So you spent the day doing this, right?

You can't fool us. :bigrofl:  :wave:

 

Nice tractor, BTW.

That's some really cool stuff.  But didn't you have any green legos?   :driving_big_tractor:

Nice tractor. I spent a lot of time as a boy building all kinds of things with Lego! It's one toy that is still around after all this time but the newer lego seems to be more focused on building very special items with each set. In the old days it was much more limited in terms of the block shapes available.

Yep. My son is just now starting to get into them. He has always loved building things and I haved learned to let him explore,learn and enjoy. He is more "hands on" than my teenage daughter who cant live without her phone and computer.

Actually, I did borrow her minivan yesterday and bring home the little simplicity 525 for my son yesterday. I cant afford the high gas prices for my suburban that has the big block in it. That's my story and I'm sticking to it....Spending time with them instead of tractors is what she is using as "therapy" to cure this dreaded tractor disease!! Mom says I got it from my dad! We still laugh when we talk about him always  "draggin" something else home! :rolling:  :watching_you:

 

That's some really cool stuff.  But didn't you have any green legos?   :driving_big_tractor:

I found some green legos but they wouldn't snap together with the red ones! It seemed like trying to put a round peg in a sqaure hole.  :bigrofl:

Thanks, I think we called it "using your imagination" when we used what we had to play with!

Well, We used as much red as we had... Maybe we should get some more "kits" so we can make another tractor from "scratch"..Maybe something green and red so we can build a deer and massey both...

 

Nice job!  Did it run well?

Yep til it feel off the porch about an hour after the pics!! Now it's time for a new project.. Do you think KennyP could build something during all his free time?  :D
