If I Had a Hammer

Chris and James spent some quality time in the garage workshop recently "building" things. They both love tools and tinkering and it was some great father/son time. Here are a couple iPhone pictures of James hard at work, which is adorable, but the highlight is the video of him talking about what he built. That kid is some kind of cute!
