Are You Sure This Won't Fit
Under the Tree, Mommy?

About a block and a half from our house they are in the process of constructing a new church building. This means that there are excavators and tractors and all kinds of construction equipment that I don't know the names for! Needless to say my two-year-old is in heaven.

Consequently we have to go on a walk nearly every day to see the progress they are making and check out what equipment is on the site. Here is a picture of Jonah from earlier in the week. He LOVED this excavator and wanted to "get closer".

Can I drive it, Mommy?

A day or so later we spied this ginormous thingamajig (Do YOU know what it is?). Just look at the little boy and the HUGE... um, whatever. I am pretty sure Jonah would LOVE it if we could just take this sucker home!

Sorry buddy... I don't think that will fit under the Christmas tree!

  3. Cute pics - no, I have no idea what that thing is either! When my oldest son was little, if anything was like that in our neighborhood - we would have to walk there everyday in fascination also!

  6. My toddler is very into construction and all that goes with it. Good thing my husband is in the field! I checked with him and it is offcially called a motor grader or aka a blade.

  13. I'd say GINORMOUS! But what excitement from a toddler where they look even more GINORMOUS! How exciting to have a new church built down by you. Will you be going to this church?

  14. I love the perspective on those shots! You should blow those up and make them into posters! Those could fit under the tree...

  15. Those picture are great! To be honest, I never caught the construction equipment bug as a kid, but I think I'm the exception.
    You could just park it in the back yard, with a big red bow on it. I'm sure your son would be just fine with that.

  17. My son loves construction equipment and pretty much anything that goes 'vroom vroom' ;-) I think that is called a grader. I think.

  18. if it won't fit under your tree, maybe you should get a bigger tree ;)

  19. My boys loved the big trucks, too, when they were little. Still do, probably. The vehicle says CAT on the side, but I can't remember what that stands for. Such a precious picture of your little tiny guy next to it.

  23. But Mommy it's so cool! My daughter is the same way! My husband is in construction so she's had the pleasure of riding on an excavator too! So fun! Maybe Santa will stuff a tiny version in his stocking!

  27. It's a grader. I have been educated in construction vehicles. Having 4 boys, well you have to know the names of them all.

  28. Those are cute pictures! Your little one looks to be in total awe. Isn't it funny how little boys develope the addiction to BIG toys so early on.
