Our tradition on Saturday workdays is to start with breakfast at our local family-owned hardware store’s cafe.  #shoplocal

These two helped Daddy shovel the walkway.

 

This girl.  If you missed it she discovered this trick during our closing day celebration when we bought the house.  It makes rolling carpet very difficult when you can’t stop laughing.

Now time to knock out some walls!!!!!!!!!!!

This girl right here rocked it.  She hammered at those walls ALL day.  Hit her finger with the hammer once, cried a lot, and then picked it back up and kept swinging.  She actually showed me how she adjusted her grip to keep from hitting again.  At then end of the day when Zach said it was time to go, Gracie said, “Awwww, but I want to keep working!”  #mommysgirl  #minime

Caleb quickly turned the dry wall pieces into dragons and let me tell you those dragons had a lot to say all day.

This little peanut pretty much just walked around being cute and using the shovel to push around the dirt.

She actually tried to push Zach off the ladder because she wanted it for herself.  I am legitimately nervous for when this child starts talking.

Mommy’s turn!!!  Let me at it.  I lasted about 10 minutes with that sledge hammer.  Felt pretty good though  #stressmanagement

And super fun coloring books!    My kids LOVE their Melissa and Doug Jumbo Size Coloring Books.  The pictures are huge, and they have girl and boy themed ones.  They are also awesome for traveling because the book almost acts like a lap tray while they color.  Find them here!  I am a huge fan of Melissa and Doug for kids and lots of their stuff hit my 10+ Gift Ideas for Girls, Boys and Baby Girls last year.
