Weekly Winners – week 7

I've got quite a few photos this week to make up for last week.

My internet went out Wednesday evening when a windstorm had gusts strong enough to actually rip the guy wires out of the ground and topple the 50 foot pole that holds our receiver. Normally it just blows the antenna around like a weathervane but this time it was strong enough to bend the pole and pull it down


Because of the bend it is no longer collapsible, so we can’t re-erect it ourselves. We needed one of these


Just to give you an idea of scale


There is no way boys can resist a giant bucket truck



Erecting the pole, (they eventually got it straight but the sun was setting so I didn’t get a photo)


Not only are my boys fighting with sticks, they are doing it on the roof.


I know this looks like a Tonka truck with dinosaurs in it but actually it is an AT-AT full of storm troopers. (we’ve been in major Star Wars mode here lately.)


It’s under attack by rebel pilots


Curse you rebels!!


Later the dinosaurs exchanged Valentine’s Day cards

My youngest boy would not be able to resist that truck either!

I love love the dinosaur shot! THey're all awesome, and what boy doesn't love a BIG truck, but the dinosaur with the sucker... too cute!
