52 Weeks of Happiness - Week 25

First the cars came out to vroom, proving to me that there is still some childhood left in these growing bodies. However, just in case I wasn't convinced, the Green Machine was requested last week! Oh Happy Day! I think this fine piece of equipment is now nine years old, and hasn't seen the light of day in over four years.
My son had his friends over for dinner while the power was out, (since I happened to be the one who had just bought a huge package of ground beef to make burgers on the grill, and wasn't sure how long my refrigerator would be down). The mention of the Green Machine was met with cheers from the guys. The next thing I knew, the boy and I were hauling it out of the basement. It made me happy that I am a pack rat!
I was happy to be outside and pleased that everyone was careful and took turns!
Having the electronics turned off and enjoying the simple things made me happy.
It made me happy that the few turnovers were met with much laughter and no injuries.

Stop by Leigh's place to see what made other people happy!


  1. OMG I remember the green machine. I think the power going out is a way in getting everyone away from the electronics and outside to enjoy a great summer afternoon.

  2. Beautiful!! The Green Machine looks like fun!!

  3. You're never too old for the Green Machine! In fact, maybe I should get my husband one for getting himself around these next 3 months. :)

  4. OMG. Danny has been DYING for one of these for years. Seeing your son makes me think that we could still get years of usage out of it. When's Christmas again?

    1. Um, there is a chance that I am riding that thing all day when they go back to school...all day!
