"Standing tall is a very admirable thing. There are very few stories in history of heroes who slouched to the rescue. Likewise, most individuals don't look up to people who are drooped over."

Foto-story Friday #17 -Fascination


Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek


We went riding with the twins on Tuesday.  There is a trail down to the river that we like to take.  I love this snapshot.... It's like you can almost hear the conversation: "So, ya come here often?"  "Yeah, every few days, just for something to do.  And you?"
When we returned home, the twins found something that caught and kept their eye:
We drove up to find MDU guys surrounding the power pole on the corner.  They have been, for the last few days, adding lines for the new apartment building a block from us.  {Which has resulted in several power outages. :( }
They stood there for a long time just watching the men up in the baskets.  Scott and EmmaLece kept wanting to get closer and closer. We finally had to put them in the back of the truck, to keep them from running over and getting under foot.
I'm fascinated by the twins and they are fascinated by the power guys!

The power guys, huh? Kids are so funny! I love the shot with the helmets -- they're so big!

love the helmet heads!
I'm surprised the power guys didn't shoo you away (my brother works for ComEd and he HATES observers)

We can't pass up construction trucks or power guys either. Fascinating.
