AxMan Surplus the next day and I'd help him build his robot.
The next morning, the first words to come out of his mouth as he stepped out of his bedroom were, "We're gonna build a robot today!" So, after church we dropped off Daddy and Toby at home and headed to AxMan.
Ax-Man is a strange, wonderful, and magical place for a specific group of strange people like myself. A land of colors, textures, and bins and bins of unknown objects just screaming for a use. Even if you don't buy anything, it's entertaining just to read the funny hand made signs that illustrate the various made-up purposes for each item.
face painting gig now without him asking to be painted too when I get home!) About 40 minutes later we got to the checkout the guy ringing us up handed him a few Ax-Man temporary tattoos. "He looks pretty hard core with those Thomas tattoos," he said, "so I thought he might like these!"
In the end we left with a brown paper bag full of $29 worth of random robot parts!
Back at home while Sammy napped, I found a cardboard box and spray painted it silver.
