How cool is that?

My boys have had the great fortune to have a bobcat in our yard for their very own viewing pleasure for most of this past week. Do you have any idea how long children, men and a mom can be totally occupied by watching a bobcat dig a trench? The kids and the men are undoubtedly just delighted by the great pleasure of watching a giant machine move mountains of earth. The mom, well, she mostly watched with resignation as seven years worth of gardening work got scooped up and dumped aside. The biggest downside is that I probably lost a couple hundred daffodil bulbs. The upsides: water pipes that aren't 104 years old and don't leak and the fact that my kids named me the coolest mom ever for turning our yard into a heavy equipment site!


  1. Wowza! You know I read this twice in my bloglines and thought you were talking about, like a REAL bobcat, as in the feral kind... and then I clicked over here and saw the pics :) Fun times! Glad your plumbing is now up to par.

  2. Ha, Kal!! Then I would be totally the coolest mom EVER!!!
