Vintage Lego sets

Whilst Little Sis was at nursery we headed to the Lido for some fresh air. Big Brother scooted all the way around it, stopping for an ice cream half way round.

We all did a little exercise at the grown up playground too.

Lego System 5978

Lego System 5978 The Secret of the Sphinx is an Adventurers Egypt set released in 1998. It contains 342 pieces, and 7 minifigures: Pippin Reed, Dr. Kilroy, Pharaoh Hotep, Skeleton, Slyboots, Johnny Thunder and Baron Von Barron.

I bought it because it’s a bit different and reminded me of Indiana Jones! Big Brother obviously claimed it as his own but I’m hoping we can build it together soon.

Inside Out

Guess what we saw at the cinema today?

IMG_3783We loved the latest Pixar film Inside Out, it’s brilliant and very funny and a little sad too.

After young Riley is uprooted from her Midwest life and moved to San Francisco, her emotions – Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness – conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house, and school.

The film was preceded by a Short called Lava which was just as good as the feature film. Inspired by the isolated beauty of tropical islands and the explosive allure of ocean volcanoes, Lava is a musical love story that takes place over millions of years. The music is very catchy and I’ve been humming it all day :)
