Who's got the keys to the Jeep?


The way this little boy's face lit up when he saw his big birthday present is something I'll never forget.
He was so excited to see his shiny, new, green Jeep!
He jumped right in, turned up the radio and took a spin,
with his cute little "duckling" riding along beside him. Every few minutes he would stop driving,
clasp his little hands together in front of his face and say quietly to himself:
"I LOVE my birthday present. I LOVE my Jeep."
Sweetest thing ever, I tell you.

Oh Ashley he is too cute. How fun he got a Jeep!! Don't you just wish you could hop in and go for a ride with him? Hudson seems to appreciative and able to really express himself. How sweet.

What a blessing to see the joy of children. It is quite a lovely jeep. Glad he liked it. May he get much use out of it as well.

He was so excited to see his new jeep sitting out in the yard. He just took off to it and jumped right on in. Took his duck for a little spin or was it a few circles. Then he decided he needed his milk after he discovered the cup holder. So stop the jeep run inside got his milk and back to the drive. Drive a bit stop and take a swig and drive some more. He loves his jeep, Its just like his mamas.

GREAT PICTURES AND POST SWOOP!

LOVE YOU!!!

Oh Happy Belated Birthday Hudson buddy!!! You make that already-very-cool jeep look GOOD. :) And I'm sure your sweet parents had about as much fun watching you drive it as you did cruising in it with your cute duck friend. :)

Ashley,

I just got current with your blog and I love it so much!! I've missed you, been away for some life events. Hoping to get back to normal. I love the look of your blog and the jeep. My kids are always begging for one of these. They are so fun!! They usually just hitch a ride with a kid in the neighborhood who has one!! Take great care, and hope to hear from you!

The post title is cracking me up. I automatically said "vroooom". My nephews got a Jeep for their birthdays. Andy's dad made them a trailer to pull behind it so they could "be like papa" and pull their fake lawn mower in it. Never seen anything cuter.

So awesome!! What fun! I always wanted my own "car" when I was a kid but I never did. That's a gift he will love and remember for years to come! He can be just like Mommy now! =)

I love that you're all barefoot! So awesome. Being barefoot in grass is such a delight!
