John Deere Heaven...

After much anticipation, we finally opened the box and Will said "Where's the Pedal Tractor?"
Will helps unload...

Biding his time by playing with the parts...
Helping to attach the seat...

Trying to add parts to other parts, which doesn't necessarily work...

PURE JOY!!!

You can even ride it backwards!
My Mom decided to indulge William in his John Deere fixation by giving him the real deal, or as close as you can get when you are 2. A die cast pedal tractor. This thing is built to last. He really will be able to pass this down to his kids, and probably grandkids. It is solid as a rock and probably weighs 30 pounds at least! It has a bicycle chain drive so it's not as hard to pedal as you would think. William just loves it. Since we are going home to Seattle for Christmas, Mom decided that he could have it early, since I can't imagine how we would take it on the plane! LOL! I am going to take him outside with it in the morning and let him ride it around the yard. He is going to sleep tonight a very happy, and lucky boy. Thanks Grandma!

Wow! What a cool toy! You must have one VERY happy boy! I love how involved he is in the whole assembly process!

It was a MUCH longer assembly process with his assistance! LOL! He lost one of the little teensy screws and we feared that we would never find it for a while there....
