Funny thing happens when you get a chance to meet your older (boy) cousins for the first time. You learn all sorts of cool new things that other people haven't shown you or taught you yet.
Like the cool way to great people -- "knuckles" instead of straight ol' boring high-fives:
And other cool things that Mom and Dad have been studiously avoiding like crazy, such as how that little remote control box works (oh boy; now we're in for it):
He was grinning ear to ear after they gave them to him. Wouldn't stop talking about it the whole ride home. Kept saying, "Tractoo-ah" and "Bubb-ool mowah" over and over again.
Not only are the tractor and mower seriously cool toys for a 4-year-old (actually, they're pretty cool no matter what age you are. That bucket really dumps stuff when you lower the lever on the right, and the whole bucket contraption pushes up and lowers the bucket to the ground so you can scoop up dirt or whatever....I mighta tested it out once. Or twice...), what a great way to learn new vocab!
