Happy Birthday, Lego!

If any of you were as big of a Lego Nerd as I was when I was little, you'll understand why I love this photo (although, back when I was a kid, every face in Lego Land was the same: they each had the simple 2 eyes and a smile). Today is Lego's 50th anniversary. Considering how many legos I had and how much I loved to create things with them, I think this is pretty darn cool. Legos have come a long way since then. There are all sorts of cool new shapes and product lines, but their ability to grab your imagination remains the same. As an aunt, I now find myself buying legos for my nieces and nephews. I love to make things with them. It's great to see what kinds of cool stuff they come up with. Here's to you, Lego! Happy Birthday!
