Dozer Day

Wow, was that a lot of fun! My Mom and I took the little men, including my 2 nephews to Dozer Day in The Couve. Who ever thought of it is a fund raising GENIUS! We paid $5 to get the kids in and $7 for adults, all the money goes to parks and recreation and we had hours of entertainment. Upon entering the kids get a "hard hat", it was plastic and kept blowing off in the wind, but still cute. The first thing we did was drive the excavator. The boys got in the cab of the excavator (with an experienced operator) and got to dig up some dirt, dump some dirt and spin it around. They LOVED it.

The Fire Department was there and did a fire safety talk and fire drill with the kids, then they climbed on a fire truck. No visit to Dozer Day would be complete with out a ride in the back of a big dump truck, so that was our next adventure.

My eldest nephew could not stop talking about digging for diamonds, so we went to do that next. At $2/minute to dig, I thought it best that the older 2 do that and we find another activity for the 2 younger boys. While the big boys shoveled dirt as fast as they could to try and dig up a gem (real ones worth lots of $$), the little boys had just as much fun in another pile of sand with some Tonka trucks.

We also spent about an hour playing in huge tires and climbing around in some large drainage pipe. Dozer Day was fun and I can't wait for next year!
