The "up" goes REAL high

So, Joe loves all things mechanical. Not only loves but obsesses. He loves the nonner (lawnmower), dotter (helicopter), and most of all he loves the UP (forklift). He awakens in the middle of the night and says... "the up, it goes REAL high!" and falls back to sleep.

So, yesterday morning, Jason was taking Joe to Lufkin with him. Unfortunately, Jason had a memorial service to go to and he decided to take Joe with him so that he could stay for a "camp bebe weekend". When he awakened, he said HI mommy! :) I told him... guess where we're going? His eyes sparkled and a big grin broke out on his little face... the UP?
I said... yes!

I could barely contain him enough to get me dressed and then him dressed. When we walked outside, he pointed to his hat and said... need hat! well of course. One needs a hat when riding on the UP!

He's running back and forth on the driveway in sheer excitement.
Daddy asks Joe... "you ready for a ride on the UP?" This was his face.

A little blurry but you get the idea!

this boy loves ups. He loves nonners and he loves dotters. When Jason got to Lufkin, he had to take joe on three rides around on the nonner. Today is a Big Daddy/Joe Joe day and he's going to take him on the choo choo, the nonner AND take him to a friend's warehouse that has UPS ! I mentioned to Jason that he should probably wait until later in the visit... or he will end up taking him to the UP every single day. Jason said... "I'll let him figure it out." ha!

What a special special week for Joe to spend with his Bebe and Big Daddy. :)

Awww, it's so neat when kids are little and get so excited by things like this. It's a reminder for all of us to find joy in the every day.
