Whenever my dad visits we always stay busy and keep him busy. Last time he visited he put new brakes on my Jeep. When he visited a few weeks ago he asked if there was anything that we needed to get done around the house. I thought about it for a while and then remembered that I'd been wanting a couple of garden boxes to plant in this year. So we made a trip to Home Depot to get wood to build the boxes. While we were there they had a free kids workshop and they were building race cars. We took Dylan over to see what was going on, but he got freaked out for some reason and didn't want to participate. We walked a few isles over and calmed him down and started getting the wood for the garden boxes. Then the very nice lady who was checking people in for the workshop came over to talk to us. She had seen Dylan looking over at what they were building and then leave. So she came over to bring him a race car that he could build at home!
Unfortunately we had a rainy weekend and the garden boxes didn't get built until Monday, but Grandpa and Dylan had fun building the race car in the meantime.
Dylan and I planted spinach, 2 kinds of lettuce and snap peas. I really hope the snap peas grow, they are one of my favorites!
