The first month of 2016 is over. It ended properly, with a celebration! Of my lovely friends Ben and Christina, and their 4th year of inner-city mission work in Winnipeg, MB. Or rather, it was a thank-you for Christina’s sponsors, a pseud-28th-birthday party for Ben, and a showcase of some of their pictures and tales from their Anniversary trip to Italy (Florence and Rome).
This would be the one thing I didn’t take any pictures of. Instead, on the following day that I stayed, Chris and I ‘adulted’ with Lego.
We made a pilgrimage to the Lego Store in Polo Park, where we created approximate Lego characters of ourselves. In order L-R, Christina, Ben, me.
I also learned about the wonder of the Brick Wall, and bought various assorted pieces without a building plan. This is difficult for me, a suitably paranoid planner.
Regardless, I managed to create an approximation of a Truck.
While, the most experienced builder, Christina made a lovely sports car.
It was great. Good to be there for them. Good to sit and spend physical time with a dear friend. And good to remember how helpful it can be to create.
