There was an impromptu trip to the Lego store in my absence it seems. Something pretty cool was purchased:
Orion, however, didn't really see it as a building surface. He saw it as a game board! There were some very complicated rules involved that apparently Ron never did understand LOL. He just did as he was told. My favorite thing is that he has taken to putting the pirate jewels on the heads of some of the people. You can see them on the guys lined up on the left.
