Phantom Post - Parnell's Invade Home Depot

Merritt is working today, so the remaining Parnells invaded Home Depot. For those of you who, like us, did not know that Home Depot is kid friendly, here is proof. A few weeks ago Griffin and I stumbled upon a kid's workshop they do from 9-12 on Saturdays. Griffin built a little Nascar display shelf and had a blast. Sissy needed an apron (or a Home Depot cape as she called it). Last week we got snowed out. So today, sissy got her apron and showed that all of her working with Daddy over the years has paid off.

Griffin had many near misses with the hammer; fingers, toes, faces beware when the Gman has a real hammer.
We were the first ones there and camped out under the heater.
Let me tell you, Avery was intense.
These guys were great, he had eyes like a hawk. Apparently, he used to eat tacks as a child so was wary of Griffin with nails. . . very smart man.
Overall, a successful trip to Home Depot. Avery is ready to go back and get a few more pins. Griffin has done this project twice, so hopefully a new project is in the works! Signing off, Daddy.


  1. Well, sounds like Merritt is not getting anything on you for finding fun things for the kids to do. What a great time filling event!!

  2. FUN! I saw that the other day in our local Home Depot! Glad you had a good time! Love you all and happy whatever holiday is next!
