To infinity and beyond!
Over the weekend, the family received an invitation to build our own spaceship at IKEA. It was an offer that is hard to refuse. As a dad, I always like the notion of building a 'toy' for the boys. If you have been around on the internet, you would often hear Dads building awesome cars and stuff for the little ones. I have to admit I do wish I had the capabilities to build something for my boys, thus the invitation to build a spaceship sounds like a good start to my construction 'career'.

The boys are equally pleased to be at IKEA, which incidentally was one of their favourite haunt.

There are no rules on how a spaceship should be build. Simply use your imagination.
It was an enjoyable morning spend with the boys. They love the experience while I am contended with fulfilling my dream of building them a spaceship.

I am glad the spaceship could fit both of them at the same time.
|Come fly with me!|
The spaceship will be flying home with us!
