Knobs, Buttons, Pedals and Radios - A Boy's Dream

We went to the City Yard Open House on Saturday, it is a boy's dream.

It's a mom's nightmare.

Why?

Because the boy wants to get in and hang out on any given machine or truck for as long as he possibly can.

he needs to step in the pedals...

Push the buttons and pull the levers...

Pretend to drive. Even talk on the radio to an imaginary friend...

The problem?


Every other boy has the same dream and they wait in line for their chance to sit on the same vehicle, pull the same lever, step on the same pedal.

But alas, there is time, we're in no rush to be anywhere, we take our time to see it all and revisit the favorite places...

Like the police motorcycles...

And the trash trucks with no lines of kids waiting at the end of the day.

Stick around long enough and the city yard vehicles are yours for the taking!

We finally leave 3 hours later content with kettle corn in hand.

A good day for a boy.
