lego challenge: food

last week we did a family lego challenge.  we decided that our category would be "food" and then each member of the family (other than quin) had access to our full slate of legos to try and build something within that category.  let me say this: it is easy to think about different kinds of food; it's much harder to build them with rectangular squares!  i have all the respect in the world for those who make lifelike sculptures of people and other things out of legos....i can't imagine how they do it. 
 
in any case, here are the results of our family challenge. 
 
cade made a piece of watermelon:
 

i made a taco:


shannon made a piece of pumpkin pie:


and jackson made a wedding cake:


he was determined that we should bring this cake to the family wedding we have this fall, but i finally convinced him that instead of bringing it, we could put it on facebook for nick and meg.  so i will do just that.  in the meantime, check out the cake topper....it appears that meg doesn't like the ring nick got her because it sure looks to me like she's slapping him right in his plastic face!
