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

Later the dinosaurs exchanged Valentine’s Day cards
