Aren the Builder

I decided to shy away from preaching and/or bitching on this post and just be a regular mormon mommy blogger and post about our fun morning. We packed up the kids and headed over to Lowes where ever other week they have a mini class for kids where they get a little project to build. It's free and you even get a little apron and goggles to protect you in case of random flying nails and hammers...what could be better?! Check out if these classes are offered in your area HERE. Rick and Aren had fun putting together a tabletop basketball hoop thingy and Tatiana was in pure heaven being able to wonder around Lowes wherever she wanted...she must take after Rick. Anyways, here are a few shots from the morning, complete with my clearance bamboo chime thingy find for only six bucks.

Getting started and not very happy about the photo op apparently.

Wondering Tatiana
Half way there!
And we're done!

Yes we love doing these projects - Lowes is twice a month and Home Depot is once a month - so nearly every Sat my boys love going with Korye - they made the basketball thing today too! FUN

I too love Lowes (that smell), all the unmade creations waiting to happen.
Tell Poon I love the goatee and shaved head-not sarcastically.
Also, I need your address, email it to me at

We discovered crafts at Lowes just a few weeks ago and made a car x4. My kids were in heaven, but if we keep going I am going to need a new room to keep all their projects.

I didn't know they did that. How cool! Maybe I'll take Sam in sometime to work on something cool like that.

I found out Home Depot does it as well on the first Saturday of every month! I love free cool activities.

Amy, I'll let him know...he's been sporting that look (the bald head) for about four years now...ever since Aren told him that his hair was starting to look like grandpa...LOL!
