Tow Trucks and Cake!
Grandmom and Papaw came to visit over the weekend, and we all visited the International Towing and Recovery Museum in Chattanooga on Sunday. Caius loves trucks of all kinds so this museum was a terrific hit. Later, we had a big lunch at City Café downtown, including several slices of their signature, three-layer cakes. We're looking forward to when Baby #2 can join in on fun days like this!
Daddy David, Daddy Adam, and Caius had fun operating Tater Tot, the kids' tow truck at the museum.
The boom and arm on Tater Tot, the kids tow truck, are fully operational, and Daddy David had fun playing with the controls. It clearly says "Parental supervision required at all times." Why was no one supervising Daddy David?
Did you know that the tow truck was invented in Chattanooga, TN by Ernest Holmes Sr. Holmes and his son Ernest Holmes Jr.?
We learned that tow trucks come in all shapes and sizes. Here Caius is driving a 1970 Cony 1/4 pick-up with a two cylinder engine. Museum info says, "This particular Cony was tested after its restoration by towing a Ford Escort."
It's always fun with Papaw!
Of course, the weekend wouldn't have been complete without some hugs from Grandmom...
...and some goofy time with Papaw.
