He got a few presents yesterday, mostly of the knights and dragons variety.
(He will receive the rest of his gifts on Saturday at his big birthday party.)
Last night, we took him to Fuddrucker's because his dinner request was "chicken and fries". The milkshake was a bonus.
It was a great birthday. But it didn't end yesterday. This is his birthday week, after all.
So for today I set up a private, after-hours tour of our local DOT garage.
The guy let us in the garage and told Topher he could climb in any trucks he wanted. He went straight for an enormous dump truck.
And I do mean enormous.
These are the trucks they use to keep Iowa highways clear of snow and ice.
That's a big job.
I think this was Topher's own version of Heaven.
Seeing him so happy and excited was our version of Heaven.
He ended up "driving" three of the huge trucks.
