Building a Firetruck

We do a lot of things.  We go a lot of places.  Sadly, though, because Adam has to work, we don't often get to include dad.  This makes dad sad, and it makes the kids sad, because they absolutely adore him.  That said, when you live in Utah, home of families with 10 and 12 kids each, doing things on the weekend can turn into a crazy explosion of people that none of us like.

So the last time we were in Lowe's, we decided maybe trying to do their Build and Grow building projects every two weeks on Saturday morning might be good, as it's early (at 10 am), free, and something we could do independently.  Plus, dad loves to build.  We've done them in the past, but it's been awhile.  Plus, you don't have to sign up ahead of time, so if we decide to skip a week, we can!

So Saturday, we went and each of the kids got to build a firetruck.  It was fun, Wednesday and Angus needed more help, whereas Zhara did it almost all herself.  Each of the kids really did a great job, though, following the directions and building their toy.

 We got to hammer.. and there were stickers!

Happy builders with their new fire trucks, with real working sirens!
