Mack, Mack, He's a Lego maniac!

McKay's 7!  His birthday was last week and it was all about Lego's.  Jeff and I and the girls gave him the Hagrid's Hut set from the Harry Potter Lego's.  I'm proud to say that with just a little instruction from me on how the instruction booklet worked, McKay did the whole thing by himself! 

It's been the year of the birthday party, so we carried the Lego theme over to that as well.  Using my friend's fabulous idea (thanks Kirsten!), we invited about a dozen boys over to build and race Lego cars.  It was loud and messy and lots of fun.  I set up to make-shift tracks and just let the boys go at it.

My favorite moment was when McKay's friend Jaxon showed up.  The two of them have this super cute manly little hug that they do every time they see each other.  It's been quite awhile since they've played outside of school.  It warmed my heart to see them still do it. :)  Sadly, I didn't get a picture of it.

McKay got a lot of fun Lego sets, games and other great gifts.  He's had so much fun playing with everything and building his new Lego sets all by himself.  His face was completely aglow with happiness throughout the whole party.  Every single boy he invited came.  It was awesome to see how much his little buddies love him.

What a great idea! I can't believe he put that thing together on his own!
