Improvising...

When Kevin and Dana moved to their new home, they decided to save a little money and do their own yardwork. Kevin's brother, Greg, kindly offered his lawnmower, edger, and weed wacker because he currently has a gardener. After a few months, Kevin decided that it was time to purchase his own gardening equipment.

We joined them at Home Depot two weekends ago, with our truck, to help transport everything home. Everything made it home, the yards were mowed, and Kevin's lovin' using his new equipment. We kindly offered to take Greg and Steph's stuff back to them on our way home. On our way there Kevin called us and asked us to bring it back because Greg and Steph weren't home.

Fast forward to today... I was out babysitting while Dana was registering Braeden for Kindergarten. When she got home we were meeting Steph at her house to go shopping. I had this brilliant idea...we're going to Steph's...I don't have the truck...let's see what we can fit in the blue car. Two adults, two kids, one lawn mower with bag, one edger, a weedwacker... PRICELESS!!! Can you say WHITE TRASH???? We drove 10 mph with flashers and luckly didn't pass a soul going the back roads. Too bad--we were definitely a sight to see!!!

LOVE IT! . . .
especially your pose. You manage to have fun with everything. Who says little vehicles can't haul stuff! I remember bringing home asphalt shingles for our house there on Mardina in our little green pick up, in one trip. The front wheels were barely touching the ground. I woulde have loved to have been with you.

I asked Kev to look at this post this morning before he left for work. He started to read and said, "She DID NOT put all that stuff in the car did she?" He was laughing so hard tears were starting to form. He joked, "Don't tell your mom she can't do something!" PRICELESS!!!
