So proud of their creation! My master builders. :)
Close up. Notice the elevator shaft. You just turn that wheel on the roof and it lowers it up and down to each floor.
My son built the soda machine. He was super excited about it. He really wants a Coke sticker to put on it, but we looked up Lego stickers online and they are so expensive. I can't bring myself to spend money on tiny stickers.
My girl built this floor. She included a bed, a gumball machine (doesn't everyone need one in their house?) a fountain and a little table. Pretty cute.
I helped out with the top floor adding a ceiling fan. My boy added the other desks and things and I made a balcony off the front of the building.
I thought my fireplace was a nice touch! I always have what I think are great ideas and my kids always shoot them down so I was happy that they let me keep the fireplace in there. I guess my artistic vision is vastly different from theirs. They don't really need my help, but my inner child comes out with the Lego building sometimes and it's so fun. Plus it just made my day when my son told me that he "loves it when I play Lego with him, it's so awesome!" Also, I just have to add that while we were building this, I remarked that it was so awesome and they both spontaneously starting singing the "Everything is Awesome" song from The Lego Movie at the same time and it was so funny.
They also added a road and a fire hydrant and bench with this old guy sitting on it. I asked my son which floor he lived on and he informed me that he was just an old guy with no home so he lives on that bench. We then talked a bit about homeless people and he decided to give him a job as the janitor for the building (he even gave him a little Lego broom) so he can hopefully afford a place someday.
This is the park next to the building where there is an ice cream vendor. I love how this little project got their creative juices flowing!

Have you built anything cool with Lego lately? I'd love to see it!
