Jeremy and Landon have birthdays this week - Landon will be three and we won't say exactly how old Jeremy will be but it also has a 3 in it, and there's a zero at the end.....
To minimize the pain, we surprised him with something he's been hankering for since we moved into our house and he hand-raked 150 bags of leaves - The Cyclone Rake! Not that it would thrill most girls but he was darned tickled over it.
This box was the teaser - the only one small enough to wrap!
The face of a happy man!
Putting the contraption together with my Dad.
This requires deep concentration, apparently.
Almost there - it had a lot of parts!
Can you see the leaves? It's AUGUST and they're already falling here in PA!
With over 20 trees on our property, this is going to be a back-saver.
For Landon's birthday, we got him his own little red tractor so he can follow Daddy around, helping with the yardwork. Who knows, it might make him a better driver someday down the road.
Right now his steering is a little crazy.
BTW he's very proud of that hole in his jeans. First worn out pair.Papa gave him a quick driving lesson.
So did Mama...
Daddy showed him how to dump out the sticks he'd gathered.
Look at me - I'm getting the hang of it!
Just a sidenote - did anybody know they sell these ginormous marshmallows? Fantastic!
Happy Boys with their toys!
