Protein Building Blocks -- 12/01/2011

A friend of our family came to dinner one time when the kids were small and proceeded to build a magnificent parking structure with the large sized lego blocks he found strewn on the floor.  For some reason, a picture of him with this masterpiece on his lap and a huge smile on his face is forever burned in my memory.
