Robert came over today for a play date. He is super into trucks and boy did he make out like a bandit! First, he was lucky enough to come over on garbage day. He missed the recycling truck, but was here in time for the regular garbage truck. He heard it before he saw it and ran over to the french doors. Molly followed, but was not nearly as excited as Robert. Then a little bit later we went up the street so they could watch the construction crew. All in all Robert saw a bulldozer, a crane, a dump truck, two fire trucks, two ambulances, and three buses. He was just a little upset when we got back inside, but I was able to distract him for lunch. Apparently he had a full morning as he napped for three and a half hours. Molly actually woke up first. She was down for just over three hours and I think her playing woke Robert. The kids are old enough that they can pretty much just play with each other. I did have to break up the occasional fight over the same toy, but for the most part they got along great.
Here are some pictures from the day, waiting for the garbage truck:
Robert is obsessed with kitties. Luckily Michael is pretty tolerant:
Molly needs to work on sharing the couch with others:
I believe this is when the bulldozer showed up, note the look of awe:
