Wonderful Wheels

Yesterday was a fun day for Brantley, and for Mom and Dad. We went to a fundraiser for the  Children's Museum called Wheels of Wonder. Basically, they called in as many trucks and vehicles from all kinds of public services. There were ladder trucks, ambulances, school buses, crime scene vehicles, John Deere tractors, race cars, limos, and anything else you can think of. The kids could crawl all over and in them...and there was a cacophany of sirens, becuase yes, they were allowed to press the buttons. There were also inflatables and slides, basically, a kid's heaven. We went to any vehicle he wanted, but the highlight, for all of us, had to have been when they flew in the Baptist Hospital's AirCare helicopter. We were allowed to get in the back, and the guys on board had to have been some of the nicest, most patient people. They helped us in, and took a photo for us, without being asked!

After Brantley went to work, we went to work in Grandma's garden. We've redesigned her yard and it looks great! And only two trips to Lowe's to do it! Really, we just moved things around, but up some window boxes and hooks for ferns and got some plants to fill in some landscaping. Today, we get to plant it all. But it does look good! Before the second trip to Lowe's we went to get BBQ at Hursey's...and boy, you should see Brant eat BBQ! We split a plate, and that won't happen again! He's graduated to an adult chopped plate all for himself! And after that, we got ice cream from Smitty's. AND he ate a whole cone! He decided, several bites into his strawberry, that he wanted Grandma's orange sherbet. So, being Grandma, she swapped. After he fininshed, he said, "I want another!" That boy was a bottomless pit yesterday!...but no, he didn't get another, it was off to Lowe's!

I've still not gotten a photo of the house, but I will try today. The shutters are not up yet, we are trying to let everything dry really well before we do. But I'll get one of now, and then the finished version as well.
Love to all, we are going to go plant tomatoes, then Grandma's hostas. Love to all!
