Lego and a sick day is "awesome"

It seems that everyone with children has seen the Lego Movie.
(you can pre-order it on iTunes if you haven't)
It was all my kids talked about for weeks after.  I wasn't surprised to see they chose 
to keep busy and get creative with their collection of Lego Movie figures while taking a sick day from school.

I don't know who invented Lego,  but I think it's brilliant!  
Even adults enjoy playing with Lego,  and if you have seen the movie,  can take it quite seriously.

Everything is awesome...when you play with Lego!

What was your toy of choice to build with when you were a kid?
