  1. This is great. It’s always fun to see a ‘story’ through pictures. Of course, that first image went straight to my heart. It’s been a long time since I’ve been to Paris. I need to rectify that. :)

  2. Lego + collapsable bag = GENIUS.

    • Isn’t it a cool bag? It’s an original Lego bag my kids’ dad had as a kid. You can buy one like that on Ebay for at least $300. All you need is round fabric, rivets and some cord. I bet it would sell well in toy stores. It’s super convenient on the go.

      • I think I’ve just found my mother’s next project (I have the ideas; she has the sewing machine). :-) Thanks for the tip!

      • You’re welcome! It sure makes it easier to pick up the Lego pieces, as long as they mostly stay on the fabric. The diameter is 36″ and it’s plenty big for all the pieces and all the ones that are not shown. I can’t wait for you to take a photo of your new bag and post it on your blog!

  3. I very much enjoyed your photos. Are you born in Paris? I haven’t been there for too many years ….

  4. That brownie made me hungry. Your boys do amazing Lego creations. I think those are some of the greatest toys ever invented. They spur the creative juices like nothing else.

    • Legos are so much better than building blocks because they attach to one another so you can really create almost anything out of your imagination. I’m amazed at the stuff my kids can build. I’m more of a 2D person…

      • Yeah, me too (on the 2D part). But I love watching what my kids can create. My oldest thats in college still has fun playing and building with her brother’s legos when she’s home.

      • Your daughter must be quite the exception to like building with Lego. Good for her!

      • She’s an architecture major, so she loves building and creating. Her dream toys are the Lego Architecture sets–Falling Water is on her list every year. I’d get it for her, but she always has so many other ‘needs’ that are more real that she never gets the toy.

      • Well, that makes a lot of sense. I think kids who are good at Lego are definitely apt for a career involving 3D design, like architecture or design engineering (anything from pens to airplanes). I personally miss that third dimension capability. :-(

  5. Can I come over for some crepes?

  6. You’ve lived in Paris? How romantic. Now you get to catch rays on a beach. Life doesn’t get much better. Your children’s artwork are mindful masterpieces. Just lovely, Milka :-)

    • I was born and raised there. There’s definitely a lot more sun in San Diego! My kids draw so much good stuff, I go in different places: the frames (it’s the best in show), then on the wall, then in a storage box for future viewings.

  7. Fantastic depictions of “home.” :D

  8. Lovely response to the prompt! Had me smiling.

  9. Very adventurous to move from Paris to San Diego – and it looks like the adventures haven’t stopped! :)

  10. Thank you – I found myself smiling with pleasure at the pictures and captions as I scrolled down :)
