A dream come true

This morning, we went and played at the park near us to get out and enjoy one of the very few sunny days we've had recently. We were getting ready to leave when we saw a big backhoe being delivered to the empty lot right around the corner, so we took a little detour on the way home and saw the backhoe. It was just being delivered, but the man who delivered it said that if we came back while it was working we could probably get to take a ride in it, or at least sit in it! As Aidan said, "I excited!" We hurried home and ate a really good lunch. Good thing Brittany made one of our favorites, or I don't think we could have stopped talking about the backhoe long enough to put food in our mouths!

We finally finished and headed back over to the lot. As soon as we got there, a dump truck came that delivered a bunch of rock, so we got to watch it being poured out. That alone was really cool for two little guys who love trucks! But then the moment came - we got to ride in the backhoe with our new friend Mr. Cody! Well, okay, maybe not WE, but Aidan did get to go up in the truck and move the bucket! (Patrick clammed right up and did not want to go with our new friend up into the truck.) It was a little like the Santa phenomenon: we were really stoked about doing it until we got up to get on the truck/Santa's lap and we kind of freaked out. We did get some pictures, though, so we can remember our fun time checking out the trucks. We are going to be talking about this for a long time to come!!

That. Was. AWESOME!

Love, Aidan and Patrick
