Tower Bridge

Our first big building project of the year was completed on the 4th.
It took Adelaida and I four evenings (ca. 12 hours) to assemble this 4,287 piece Lego set.
Now I just have to figure out a way to get decent photos of it as it so large.
I also took photos as the building was in progress. Stay tuned.

The image above was taken for the Weekly Informal Challenge (Week 91): "Fresh / New"
