We had our two youngest grandkids for the past several days. So we took them Black Friday shopping. :-)
We bought a couple of project kits at the big box store and then headed to the local hobby store to get some paint.

All parts were predrilled, so it was a lot of hammering and painting. The girls were building Christmas gifts for their brothers. Blondies’ “little brudder” is due the week of Christmas.

They had fun and we did also.

All that shopping made ‘em hungry so we had to stop for lunch.

This was very rewarding time spent with them.

Shopping at the big box store.

Awesome to spend time with them I am sure. I hope that they will get a chance to join you in the shop in the future and make some more memories.
