Garbage Truck

The other day Croix and I were walking home from the park. As we came to the end of the street the garbage truck turned onto the road. With where we were and the truck was I decided it was easier and safer to just back up a little and wait for it to go by. Croix loves the garbage truck anyway so that's what we did. We watched as he picked up two cans. Then the truck stopped. The driver opened the door and asked if Croix would like to come in and check it out. I said of course he would.

The driver adjusted  everything so Croix wouldn't be able to do any damage while he was in there and hopped out. I hefted Croix up in the drivers seat,  which was quite the task since it was over my head and I'm 8mo pregnant. Croix sat there, wiggled the steering wheel, looked at all the buttons and levers. The driver was kind enough to help Croix down. On the way he helped Croix honk the horn. He was in little boy heaven. He couldn't wait to tell his Daddy! The rest of the day he kept talking about driving the garbage truck and honking the horn. Yay for friendly garbage truck drivers!!

(The picture is not so great. All I had was my cell phone and it was super bright and hard to see. Didn't know Croix was going to have one of the best moments of his life on the way home from the park  or I would have brought my real camera )
