The Rocker Rolls-And-The Front Walls Are Done

I am reposting this Sunday
night because I just went
to MamasBoy's house
and he had finished the front
rock wall.
(His back hurts- Gee-really?;>)

A few weeks ago I shared
He is building rock walled
terraced areas for his wife's
(and his) home on the Bay.
I have been taking pictures and
kind of documenting the progress.
He called today and asked us
to stop by to see what he
had accomplished.
I didn't think he
was much further than
he was the last time
I was there
but I, dutifully,
started snapping pictures.
Afternoon update:

And a bit more~
And a few big bottom rocks to anchor
things in this one...
And here she is!
Purty, huh?
What he REALLY wanted us to see
earlier -
and I am SO excited to show you this.
The conversation, pre-viewing, went like this..
Wait, Mom and Dad!
Don't look, okay?
I've got something in the
garage to show you.
You aren't looking, are you?
OK- NOW you can look!
oh wow
what have we here?

I saw it along the road
on one of my trips and called
on it - struck a deal over the phone
and went to pick it up.

oh wow
what a great find.....

I've been wanting one of these
for years!!!


Look-it's fun to ride!
you sure do look CUTE on
that THANG...
I love it that he still
wants to show MOM
his new toys!
An old
Montgomery Wards
Three Wheeler..

ps...His wife is VERY excited!

It has a ski for winter use?

Exactly what is that Thang?

At least yours gets toys you can both enjoy, chuckle! What fun you are going to have in the winter also ...

Bet the guy with the tattoo is the sweetest ever ...

Yes, my share today has brought me to tears many a time, Diana. Just a beautiful heart story ... of quiet love.

Have a beautiful day. We are all safe but rather wet.

Patty said...

Hey, that looks pretty cool! We'd never get to use the ski here, though.

That is a pretty cool toy! The rock wall is amazing, your son has a lot of talent and energy. Are you sure he's not Irish? About that tatoo. For all your sakes, I'm glad it didn't come with the new toy.

Diana LaMarre said...

I bet he is having a ball with that toy.

I love the rockwall terrace. . . can't wait to see it all done. It must be a ton of work!

Lin said...

Boy's & their toys, they never really grow up do they! Great pics :)xx

Tete said...

LOL- well, Curb Appeal's got nothing on that boy! Love the rocks- but there's something missing...the plants, the grass, a gnome...
I love his new toy! My kids are like that- look mom! I'm 4 again! LOL

Cindy Adkins said...

I hope you're having a beautiful Sunday.

Debbiedoos said...

LOVE the rock wall, and the new toy looks fun too. He does look so happy!

Pam Kessler said...

Oh, my. Looks like he really likes that thing. I guess it can be his payment for all the hard work on the rock wall. I want to see pictures of it in the snow this winter.

Seawashed said...

That rock wall rocks! It looks great. What a pretty home he has. How tickled it must make you to have your son still want to share everything with you. I think(hope)my boys will be like that. ox

Great post! I love reading your stories!

Donna said...

Wow, do you loan your son out? Love the rock wall! And what do I have to pay you to show us a picture of YOU on the new toy, whizzing up and down the road?!! I can just see you this winter plowing thru the snow in that baby, too! With your Starbucks in hand, of course:)

I know what you mean...when my 48 yr old calls or comes by with news he wants to share with his mama, it makes my heart swell almost up my throat. :)) Ain't life grand !!!

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Your so funny Diana, love your humor!
That rock wall is beautiful and I can imagine how much work that was too!
Kudos to your son!

Sandi~A Cottage Muse said...

Boys and their toys...will always love their Mama!

Diana Ferguson said...

Looks like a lot of fun!!!!

michelle said...

His rock wall looks gorgeous!!! He did an amazing job on it.
That is too funny about the three wheeler, good think his back doesn't hurt enough to stop him from riding it. ;) It does look like a lot of fun though. :)

Suzanne@Meridian Road said...

The rock walls look great! That's going to be beautiful when he's finished.

Boys and their toys. My husband says that most men are only 17 on the inside. I'd have to agree. :)
