Build Something Awesome!

My son loves LEGO, so I knew I would have to take him to The LEGO Movie. What I didn’t expect was how much I would enjoy myself. I loved that Emmet could only fit in when he stopped following the instructions, even though he really needed them to build anything. But my favorite thing about the movie was how much it inspired my son to just play with his LEGO bricks and not worry about being perfect.
