I was feeling very guilty about our home bound situation and lack of summertime entertainment.
That is.....until now.
In preparation for these projects, over the Labor Day weekend, roofing supplies and building materials were dropped off at our property. Most of these items were packed on pallets and required transport from a variety of large haulers.
Can you say Heavy Equipment Heaven?
To my boys, it was as if their beloved Mighty Machines DVD had magically sprung to life.
These shiny big rigs powered up our driveway with their engines roaring. They were equipped with gnarly monster tires and slick hydraulic cranes.
For a moment, I thought both of my children would stop breathing.
There was this fellow who brought the shingles.
He used this machine below to unload the shingles.
I thought it was a fork truck.
The kind driver patiently explained that it is more precisely called a Moffett.
Did you know that?
Both boys nearly collapsed from heart palpitations over this one.
And then there was this big rig that deposited the dumpster
Foreman Weston supervised the placement
Supervisor Nicholas, with his trusty headphones, was second-in-command
The boys enjoyed the flurry of activity. They were drawn to the workmen who, like an army of ants descended upon our house carrying ropes, ladders and air-powered hammers. Weston did his best to join the band of merry men and thanked the Big Vehicle Gods that school didn't start until tomorrow!
