The Death Star... or, Sphere 'o FearRobert received the ultimate Lego creation for Christmas... a literally 3000-plus-piece model of the Star War's second Death Star. It's a model for ages 16 and up... well, Lego, meet 8-year-old Robert!
Here's how it looked after a few hours
A few days later, it's taking shape slowly
Matthew's working on a Star Destroyer with pieces Robert hasn't needed yet
A week later
Here it is nearly done
And finally, by the end of January, the Death Star was completed!!!!
Finally it snowed a bit!!We finally got a bit of snow, and the boys raced outside: there was no time to lose!!
First, we need to shovel the drive...
Here goes Matthew
And here goes Robert
Finally, time for a rest!!
We finally went to Cabo!!We got to go down for a few nights just us two!! We stayed at Las Ventanas al Paraiso, and just kind of relaxed. We got to see whales a couple of days, you could see them spouting offshore (I always screamed "Thar she blows!!!") and slapping their tails down into the water. It was a beautiful resort, but honestly it got a bit boring...
Here's the view looking out from the room, that's Sam reading outside
And here's Sam as viewed through a cactus!
And here's some bird-like thing
Look, I got a tatoo!!!
