I forgot to post this last week, so here it goes. Better late than never.
My wife wanted to go to some garage sales last Saturday, and I could not say no since she has been really patient with the Saturdays all through the bookshelf project. We noticed at Lowes one night that they were having a kids clinic and that they would be building a fire engine. Absolutely perfect as our oldest son is really into the fire fighter/paramedic thing. I mean, everywhere we go there is a fire that he has to put out.
So, we went to Lowes so we could do something together. Both boys got to build a fire engine, and daddy got a lesson that one child is enough to take to one of those things given the fact that I have to help them both quite a bit (I basically have to build it for my 2 year old, the four year old does good on his own). It was well worth the trip and will be something that I do not forget real soon. Here are a couple of pictures of each of the boys “working” on their fire engines.
