Well, I finally went and got the wood to build the bunk beds. It was an eventful day, but enjoyable. It is always hard getting started on a project like this. I always have trouble looking at the large pile of wood and not imagining all of the work that will go into it. Once I start working on it, I get over that feeling, but starting out is sometimes a little hard.
My five year old is really excited about the beds. He has been asking forever when we are going to build them. I really wanted to take him with me to the wood store, but I would have never gotten out of there with him with me. That on top of the fact that I needed to take his car seat out of the van to get the wood in. Usually the truck is the wood hauler, but the truck is in the body shop after a minor incident in which I got WAY too close to the bumper of another vehicle (everybody was ok, and the other vehicle had no damage). Since I had to take the van, his seat had to come out, so he could not go anway. Well, here are a few picture of him helping me get the wood out and into the shop.

All in all, the wood run was a great trip, and unloading the van was a great experience. My son loved being part of the festivties.
This afternoon I was out in the shop and rough cut the posts, the end rails, and a few other pieces. I am ready to get started jointing and planing this next weekend. Hopefully, since it is a three day weekend, I will be into the end rails by then.
Everyone have a great week. Don’t forget your significant otheron the 14th.
