Ground Breaking

This morning, Brody and I met my parents, Jill and Brandon at a ground breaking for our town's new high school. The company my dad works for is building the new school. This is one of my dad's big projects that he has been working for years to secure. I literally mean years. So today was an exciting day!!

Brody loved the ground breaking!
Here he is with the golden shovel and hard hat. Such a cutie. We decided his tractor romper was the perfect outfit for today. ;)Here are some kids from the school district who helped break ground! The high school cheerleaders and band performed. Brody held my dad's hand while he watched.Brody is obsessed with construction equipment and gets overly excited when he sees it! He think every piece of equipment is a tractor. Luckily, he gets to see equipment like this up close since Big Daddy works in the construction field. He was so excited to get to stand on the "Big tractor"!! It made his day! He was waving to everyone while he posed for pictures! :) We had such a fun morning! Now we are home from running errands and we are watching a movie about construction equipment! Ha! Did I mention he is slightly obsessed? ;)

Have a great day!

my son (5yrs) is still obsessed with construction equipment.
Have you heard about the All About dvd collections? They have dvds for kids from firetrucks to construction trucks to race cars & more. I think we have them all.
Our Target has some of them, but you can find them on ebay. Search for All About or Hard Hat Harry. Brody will LOVE them and learn so much in the process. :)
