The date to trash mountain...

Chris' parents like to take our kids out on a special date in honor of their birthday.  The girls usually go to lunch and a movie and out for a little shopping.  They LOVE the one-on-one time they get and it makes them feel very special!  Sam has really never gone since he's been so young.  But this year he got his chance.

When they asked him what he wanted to do, he told them he wanted to go on a date to the dump.  A date to the dump.  Yep, you read that correctly.  My guy dreams big!  Sam loves trash trucks, dump trucks, excavators.  If it's got wheels and moves, he loves it! 

So yesterday, Sam, Chris and Howard set out for a trip to the dump.  Or, as Howard affectionately called it, "trash mountain."  Howard had to get rid of an old, broken, sidewalk.  Afterwards, they planned to head to the sandpit to get a trailer load of sand for the new sidewalk.  Sam was told to bring his shovel along for the trip.  Here are a few pictures from the big date. 

They ended their day with a trip to McDonald's where a firetruck pulled up and Sam got to check it out.  Great way to end a day!  He had a blast!  I'm thinking Sam is going to enjoy "helping" Papa with more projects which might require trips to the dump in the coming years!
