Day 1 of fun, part 1

So, hooray- we made it home safe!

There were so many days FILED with fun, and SO many cute and fun pictures to share, that I think I'll be trying to relive each day day by day here on the blog... perhaps in more than one post per day.

first day started with moving the car seat over to Uncle Mike's truck. Matthew couldn't have been more thrilled to be riding in "a mikul truck". We headed over to Mike's work site in the drizzling rain.

Matthew was really happy to get to SEE so many huge earth movers ("tractors") and even more thrilled when he was told he could pick which one he wanted to climb up on.

he chose the biggest of all first... and "drove" for about... 20 seconds...

After climbing the first, it became a marathon of climbing up and down and choosing the next 'tractor' to 'ride'.

Matthew was such a happy boy and would have spent the day there if we'd have let him...

but we started to get REALLY dirty (it was a good thing we'd packed an extra pair of clothes for the little guy...) and had to go clean up in Mike's office.

Matthew cried for just a bit, but we had an Air and Space Museum to get to so we could see all of the airplanes!

It's a good think Matthew had on the appropriate footwear :)

it sure is!
Did you know that we got those boots for FREE at a yard sale last summer because they were "badly scratched". That's Awesome stuff there!
