For the past year or so Dawson and Dan have been talking together about building a loft bed for Dawson's room. This summer they finally began building it together. It is now finished and put together in Dawson's room. Dawson's old bed was moved into Aubrey and Emma's room. Aubrey is out of her crib and into a big bed now. Crazy, I know. I was able to take some pictures of Dan and Dawson's building process. Yay for father/son projects!
Here is Dan teaching Dawson how to use a cordless drill.
Dawson helping build the bed in his room. He had to put a bandanna on just like Dad.
The bed put together and the ladder on.
Here is the full shot of the loft bed. Dawson has a desk under the bed and it has already been put to good use.
Dan loves to make furniture and it was a joy to watch Dawson and Dan work on something together. Dawson will have this loft bed for a long time (probably until he leaves home). I am glad that they were able to make some memories together while building it and I hope that this isn't the last father/son project!
