Statue of Liberty

Mabel and I spent a rainy day together in San Francisco today. She told vivid happy stories about her trip to New York last weekend with Mamma and Grandma. The three of them went to a flagship Lego store in Manhattan. There Mabel obtained her first standard-issue Lego blocks. Up to now she has only had the bigger size blocks designed for small children, but now she is loving the intricacy of all these bright little pieces. Above is Mabel's Lego representation of the Statue of Liberty standing on its tall pedestal. She and Mamma and Grandma saw the real Statue of Liberty from the top deck of a ferry. The spectacle of the giant statue amazed Mabel, she told me. And you can go up inside it, and she will do that too some day.
