On short notice, we decided to take a day trip to St. Louis today. When we first woke up this morning the weather didn't look favorable, at 7am St. Louis was showing 94%+ humidity, so we figured we would just find something indoors. But on the way there the sky was overcast, the temperature wasn't … Continue reading Back to the Zoo

Since they were wrapping up, we bought the smallest hammer we could find for him and took one of the kits home with us. Later in the … Continue reading Hammering!
This weekend I built the second step stool for David, this one for an upstairs bathroom. I also got both sanded, primed, and covered in a coat or two of paint. One red, one white. The white was so we could turn David loose on it to make it his own. With Mom's help, 30 minutes, … Continue reading Painting Project
