One of our favorite family stories is of when I was a little girl and my parents were doing some landscaping. They had a huge (to my eyes at least) pile of dirt delivered and it became the best backyard play space a kid could ask for. My trusty yellow dump truck and I spent hours and days digging.
Eventually the dirt was used for it's purpose and I was back to my regular yard.
The next gift giving holiday I asked for a pile of dirt. I didn't get it though and I was always disappointed.
Guthrie loves this story. Loves it.
Guess what she got me for my birthday?
A trunk full of dirt and mulch.
She is so thoughtful. We are so very lucky to have her.
