With apologies to Andrew Marvell for stealing his line (sort of).
So, today we went to Reiman Gardens to see the giant Lego sculptures. Honestly, it was not a very good day to to to Reiman Gardens. It was hot, it was humid, and it is really early in the growing season. So, no roses, and not many flowers of any kind really. The tulips are all done and the daffodils were looking pretty spent. But, we weren’t there to see flowers. We were there to see Legos
Or flowers made of Legos. How handy.
There were many different sculptures.
The children contemplate the Lego fox and Lego bunny
I especially like the bunny

At every sculpture O would look at the map and announce how many individual blocks were in the piece. And every time C would say “I’ve built bigger”. Eventually this led to this conversation:
O: No you haven’t.
C: Yes I have.
O: Okay, so where is it?
C: It’s in Denmark.
C: It’s a life size model of the world.
O: Right, like that would really fit in Denmark.
Anyway, C is sure he could build these things himself. “I just need enough Legos and enough time mom.”
I’m sure he could.
Oh, and did I mention the giant gnome?
Love this guy
He is not made of Legos.
