Boyhood (And Baby Sisterhood)

A while ago there was a gushing leak emanating from the fire hydrant across from our house. Little did I ever imagine how much entertainment would result from a broken water main.

First they brought the excavator in to rip up the sidewalk:

Then they brought the cement mixer in to fill it back in:

What's not pictured is the fire truck that stopped by in the midst of all of this. I'm telling you, this was like free babysitting. Thank you, City of Houston! (Also, thank you for fixing the leak.)

Left up to her own devices, Isla might have developed a love for baby dolls or something like that. But given her present company, I'm pretty sure it's going to be excavators and dump trucks for a while!
