For the past while Mickell has been telling me that she really wants dad to bring her some boards home so she can build something. She called him up at work the other day and he told her that on Saturday they would go buy some boards and figure out something they could build. After talking to him on the phone she came up with the idea to build an airplane. On Saturday we all went over to Lowe's and picked out some boards, nails, and a hammer for both Dylan and Mickell. When we got home Dylan quickly drew up some "blueprints" and David helped them sort of plan out how they were going to build the airplane. The kids helped with everything and were acutally really really good at hammering in the nails...well, Dylan and Mickell were really good at it and Ty just had fun pretending. David made a propeller and a steering wheel for each side of the airplane so they could both play in it at the same time. It might not look like much, but they had such a wonderful day and were so proud of all their hard work. I'm so grateful that David is such a great dad and that he would spend his day helping them to create something so fun.
