Yeah but you're used to getting up that early. I don't function well. 5am is hard enough on me. Its doable, but I like the idea of a nap better.

I am 99% sure I be at this one. Bucket still needs a coat of paint for the rft, but I can always use Tara's if I don't have time to finish it.

Sorry I have not posted much lately.
I have a float to build and photobucket has been giving me a lot of trouble lately.
Here is what I did today.
Before: This will be the back end of the float. It's supposed to look like the TK lego guy is busting out of the blocks.


After: In and out up and down, chopping boxes in half and zipping them onto the structure with bits of 2x4's and such. It still needs a bit more but we are getting there. The round bits you see on the lego blocks on the side of the float will go on these blocks and will get painted as well.

Starboard side of the float.
The legion banner will be held in place by these two lego TK's.
We hid the supports for the hand railings under the lego blocks.


Here is the neat part:
The structure you see in the background has spots for three lego figures.
Vader will be in the upper middle section flanked by two TK lego guys. They are all mounted on blocks which rotate 360 degrees, (Vader) or occilate back and forth (TK's)

Looks like I won't be making this parade, but there is one in Champaign that day that I will probably be at. On the other hand, turns out we aren't going out of town for the fourth of July weekend, so we are looking into making the trek up for Bartlett on Sunday! I will keep you guys posted on that one
