in a boy's world (and a kitten update!)

most of you know that maxx is a vehicle kid..if it moves...and is metal and looks like a truck, car, digger...he is THERE! So this last weekend a local stone quarry does a biannual event that benefits local schools...the kids get to see up close and personal...



This big tunnel is the entrance to the arena!!



where should we go FIRST!!!? MOM, can you teach me to read?



CAUTION!!!!(sign should read BIG and little kids at play!)


This is the DUMP TRUCK RIDE!!! THRU THE QUARRY!!!





here they are on the ride!!! As shannon put it...maxx sat on her lap and she got to absorb the bumps..with her butt....lol



hmmmm...mom better check his pockets before you do the laundry!



woo hooo...this is ONE BIG SHOVEL! Too bad it's not for ICE CREAM!!!



And look at all those ROCKS!!! BOOM!!!! BOOM!!! They did detonations to show how they get the rocks...



...and Maddy was THRILLED there were ART projects to do TOO!!!



...and tractors to sit in...



and here is a truck like daddy drives in the army!!!



AND FIRE TRUCKS TOO!!! (this sneaky fireman decided to try on maxx's PACKER hat!)



...and the TIRES WERE SOOO BIG!!!



DIRT... (can i emphasize that DIRT PART?) AND TIRED and the long shadows loomed...kickin up dust...
it was time to go home...


MISSED THESE PICS FROM A WHILE BACK....


Robbie called the other day...and said he had FOUND something for MAXX...uh OH...HE'S A DUMPSTER DIVER...well not actually they were sitting by the road and i could imagine some mother peering thru the curtains on her knees praying someone would stop to take them...
the boys didn't care that they were a bit dusty...
and did i mention that robbie played drums for many years? (of course robbie's drums were a BIT BIGGER...)did't matter though as Robbie plopped himself and drummed a bit for maxx...





and after a lesson or two...maxx decided...I CAN DO THAT!!!

I got a call at work
yesterday...one of the neighbors that border behind us decided to back into shannon and kevins van...



and then TAKEOFF!!! our neighbor to the south was up on his roof and saw the whole thing! So when the police were called...they went over to the house where the people came from..and the police were told that the people that hit the van were just visiting and they didn't know their NAMES...UGH....amazing NOONE KNOWS ANYTHING...

they DID leave a calling card...



bits of their tail lights...

UPDATE...THE COUPLE THAT LIVES THERE CAME OVER AND GAVE US THE WOMAN'S INFORMATION THAT HIT them...we drove by where she lives...and there sat her red van...broken out tail light dented bumper...etc..(and the other tail light matched the taillight bits left behind) called and reported the info...

breath two-three-four...and enjoy this bit of natures paint brush art that is beginning to adorn our roadways...





after one of those days...this sign made me smile...



remembering we all have those HUMPS to bump across...lol going 30 or not...we tend to bottom out...from our sagging...ya know...

SO DONN YOUR FAVORITE HAT...



WE BID THEE ADIEU....



AND TIP OUR HAT TO YOU!


and today starts Maddy's dance classes! (we switched from wednesday to mondays..)
