Toby loves all machines at the moment, so we gave him a little excavator to go with his front end loader. It was a good choice.
I had to go to work, but Toby and Country Boy spent the day doing all Toby’s favourite things: feeding the sheep with Pa, riding in the tractor, and having morning tea on the back step in the sun. He tried out his new scooter, and helped assemble the birthday cake.
I had put out a call on Facebook asking for help to design a front end loader cake, and several people sent me pictures of cakes they had made. I sketched up an idea, but Country Boy had to assemble it because I didn’t get home till late.
Toby was thrilled with his cake. We had to admire it every few minutes. Unfortunately he didn’t understand that we had to cut up the cake. He just wanted to keep looking at it. Eventually we convinced him.
