"There are no rules of architecture for a castle in the clouds."

This weekend Seth decided that he wanted to build something from the 'Lego ideas' book that Chris and Michelle had brought him for his birthday. Seth has been going on about knights and castle's for a few weeks now and has decided that he wants to build a Lego castle. We looked through the book and there is a section on castles and knights, Seth spotted a creepy looking door to a villains castle and decided that's how he wants to start his build.

I'm not a big fan of trying to copy someone else's build, id much rather build something myself. Mainly because it means having to root around through our Lego boxes looking for specific parts. Despite this it was what Seth wanted to build so we got to it. we didn't have all the parts and had to freestyle it a little. We were missing the large horns and skeleton head so replaced them with snakes and bull horns which i think came out really well.

Seth was really impressed with our end result and it has been a great start to our Lego castle build and it has left us with a new home for the Lord of the rings mini figure that Seth got free from 'The Sun' newspaper a few weeks back.

I think the castle build will take us some time but keep reading and eventually the pictures will follow.
