Free. A very good price



Tobin has forgone the few OPB shows that he watches for time looking out our window at the construction of a new church worship center. He is captivated by the large yellow equipment and the manly men who get to play in dirt all day. He taps at the window to get their attention. He asks me questions about names of the equipment that I have know idea about so I've made them up. Today after putting the twins down for morning naps we got busy making a lemonade stand to meet the workers and enjoy outside. I wasn't prepared to deal with money exchanges so Tobin and I decided FREE was a very good price. We had a blast preparing Styrofoam cups of refreshing beverages to the men in the mud pit. The foreman even took Tobin on a little tour of the equipment. He could not stop smiling.

That is so fun. I just said to Jason on Sunday that Tobin lives in THE COOLEST house right now, with all the construction going on. Mason would love to have that view.

I'll bet Tobin won't soon forget this day!

For a second I was bummed because I didn't know about it. I would have so come by to get a drink from your son.

How nice of you two to do that for the workers! And what fun for Tobin. He is so cute(that word is so overused, but hey, it's the truth). Sarah was talking about him last Saturday. They played monster together. Is that okay?

So Sweet! I know this is a little late but Sheets at Ross Dress for Less. Maybe someone has already given you the suggestion but just in case. Costco has great sheets too.(so I've heard)

I can't believe how grown up Tobin looks since I last saw him! What nice mud-pit men to allow him the treat of sitting on one of the big machines! Now he'll probably want one for his birthday...wouldn't that be fun...

Becca, that is so sweet. Tobin looks adorable out there at "The Stand".

Boys! I'm sure Tobin won't ever be sick of watching the construction. Last summer when there was construction on the Center St bridge Aidan would stand at the window and watch for as long as I'd let him he'd never really get bored of it. How are you holding up though? Hopefully it doesn't get to noisy around there.

OOOOOOOOHHHH! I'm going to show this pic to Josh. He's going to be so very jealous!! (I tell people that Josh puts the "child" in children's ministry. He really is a big kid at heart!.)
