Vroom Vroom!

Following up on vintage Tonka trucks, I finally released the last hidden truck to Number Two.  He got three for Christmas and the fourth, a huge fire truck, would’ve been lost in the excitement.  But this weekend, as I cursed and tried to reassemble the chicken watering system (honestly, how hard is it to have water that comes out of a bucket?!) and Number Two wandered through the garage looking for things to get into he spied the fire truck perched way up high on a shelf.  “Truck.  Truck!  TRUCK BABBO!  BABBO!!”  I got it down and he rolled out out beside the pool, lay down on the concrete, and got a worm’s eye view as he made vrooming noises and rolled it back and forth.  Really, what could be better on a warm Sunday?  I’ll tell you what, RIDING on the fire truck.  Keep in mind this truck is about 40 years old.  Go Tonka go!
