the pink stroller replaced...


When we were living in Utah my mom had this pink doll stroller that jack LOVED to push around. He would put his toys and bouncy balls in it and take them all over the back yard. When we moved to Washington, Grandma Susie had this lawn mower (that even makes this delightfully ANNOYING fluttering noise just like a real lawn mower) and jackson took to that thing like a fly to garbage. He pushes it around ALL. day. long. Rain or shine, that lawn mower can be heard fluttering up and down the side walk during most of the day.



I do have to say, despite the obnoxious noise of the fake motor, I like seeing jack push around something that isn't pink with flowers.



Uncle Paul, maybe you could hire jack on to your mowing crew, he makes great straight lines and will work for almost nothing...all you have to do is throw him a popsicle and some water every so often and he is set!!

How funny. He looks all business pushing that around. It's funny what kids get attached to. I gave wade this small, plastic tool box, and he thought he had it made. He was so glad that he could carry anything he wanted in it.

And, Jackson is looking so big ana handsome.

What a doll, I love that second picture. You're right, a pink stroller doesn't do that manly little guy justice.

That is so cute! Jake used to be quite a fan of the "girly" type things (as uncle Clint would call it, if you can imagine!). One year Santa brought him a kitchen and a baby boy doll and he LOVED my vacuume so I bought him a little play one. HE LOVED IT! And what do you know...he cleans up after himself, always keeps a clean room, and he takes GREAT care of his little brother...SO I would do it all again! :)

He is sooo adorable! He looks so grown up in these pictures. Before you know it, he will be working for Uncle Paul. :)

I'm sure Scotty is happy about that also. I guess we know what Jackson's first summer job is going to be. What a cutie!

I will hire him to mow my lawn when I actually get one. He is so cute! I wish I would have seen the whole pink stroller.

How cute! He is getting so big too!

Nice transition. It looks like Jack will turn out to be very useful in a few years when he can operate a real mower...

C'mon Jill, certainly you can dig out a pink stroller photo for us...it would be fun to see!
