We built a thing!

Published January 2, 2016 by Malia

I’ll be honest, until about a year ago I really didn’t understand how to build things with Legos. I understood the concept, but I just really didn’t know how to go from understanding the concept to actually making the concept work. Fortunately, with help from the boy, I now can make them work.

When we got married, the centerpiece of one of the tables was a big basket of Legos. The lovely thing about it is that we now have a bunch of Legos to play with. Something I haven’t done until this afternoon.

Browsing the internet, I found instructions for building the Eiffel Tower. (Eiffel Tower Instructions) Pulling out my box of Legos, I quickly discovered that I didn’t have nearly enough bricks to do solid colors, but I thought I had enough to at least try. To my delight, with some help from the boy, the Tower was completed.

Here’s the topper. She’s the only head I have in my random collection of bricks. I’m not sure she approves of me…or anything. She seems pretty judgey.
