"It's the Lincoln Memorial."
"Made out of Lincoln Logs?" a look of hopeful expectation on his face.

"Yes, made of Lincoln Logs sweetie."
I have a feeling that next year when we move to DC and go see the monuments, there is going to be one little boy disappointed when he sees ol' Abe surrounded by granite.
