    It's hard to believe its been 3 years. It seems like just yesterday I made this...a locomotive cradle/toybox for Alyson. I was thinking about this today as I was watching her play with the latches that open up the fuel tank. (cupboard). Never in my imagination would I realize how quickly time goes by, it seems as if she was just laying in it, now she is hooking and unhooking the latches to it as skillfully as I did at putting them onto the cradle/toybox.

    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"

    Beautiful photo, Travis. And, believe me, before you know it you'll be taking a photo of your granddaughter doing the same thing!

    Ditto...Mine is on her senior year now. Seems like yesterday I was helping her ride her first bike. Love every moment...
