LEGO The Hobbit Escape From Mirkwood Spiders Review

I have recently got a new lego set called "Escape From Mirkwood Spiders". It is in the Lego Hobbit series and is very cool.Here are a couple of pictures to show you the set.

The Complete Set

One Of The Trees

Another Tree

In The First, Bigger Tree There Is A Mechanism That Can Shoot A Spider Out

Fili And Kili Are Stuck In Spiders' Webs!

If You Pull This Rod...

The Tree Will Fall, Releasing Fili And Kili
There Are Two Spiders With Movable Legs

The Spiders' Eyes And A Couple Of Other Parts Glow In The Dark

Here Are The Minifigures (From Left To Right - Tauriel, Legolas Greenleaf, Fili, and Kili)

My Set Came With These Extra Parts (Lego Usually Includes A Few Extra Of The Little Pieces Scene They Get Lost Easily) I Do Not Promise That You Will Get The Extras Though

This set is great! I give it 10 out of 10 stars. I give it a building difficulty level of 7 out of 10. Any lego fan or Hobbit fan would love this set. It has a lot of great features and is overall a great set.

The Portland Aerial Tram

During My holiday travels this week I went on The Portland Aerial Tram (Link to their website here).
It is a very cool ride that takes you above Portland, Oregon. Here are some pictures:

The tram with Mt. Hood in the back round
Wow! I can't believe all the 15 or so people on the tram were held up by that rope!
A picture I took of the Amazing view on the tram!

Another picture of the great view

My trip on the Tram was AMAZING! If you are in Oregon I highly recommend going on the tram.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!
Today I went with my dad to bring some gifts to a refugee family (My dad works for the refugee resettlement agency World Relief). The mother of the family was blind. She had two kids, a twelve year old boy and a seven year old girl. The boy had an eye defect and could not see out of one eye. To see them so content with what they had made me realize that Christmas is not just about getting presents, but is about helping others and giving. I hope you try to keep that in your heart this Christmas.
