Dalton requested a firetruck two nights ago. I spent a little over an hour putting this together, a fair amount of that time spent looking for parts. As a result, I was feeling very sleepy at the end and forgot the piece for the windshield. It is a clear 2x4 brick.

I was quite proud of this one although a bit concerned that it was too difficult for my four year old. While disappointed, I was not surprised when he declared that it was "too hard" the next morning and turned his attention to other things.

Last night, he requested a shark bigger than the previous fish (not yet posted). Mind you, he doesn't want me to take anything apart, but wants a BIG shark. Sometimes it seems we need to buy and IV drip of Legos for our house. My wife, bless her heart, pointed out to him that I was disappointed that he hadn't put the firetruck together and that maybe he should try it again in the morning. He worked on it this morning with help from the both of us and he has it roughly half assembled.

In looking for pieces to add detail, I was appreciating the trips my wife has made to various Lego stores. I'm going to have to fill myself a cup from the pick a brick wall next time we find ourself there.
