The Tree Trimmers Came - June 26, 2008

I called some tree trimmers who were recommended to us by two different friends. I called them back in March and got an estimate from them. They said it would probably be about 6 weeks before they could get to us... Four months later they showed up after Pete suggested to the office manager that he might "vent" to every student and employee at the university he works at about their company. Well, it seems to have worked because the tree trimmers showed up the next day, lol.

They didn't finish the job, so they left their equipment overnight... we couldn't resist taking some pictures.

Here's the cherrypicker in all it's glory.

Pete pretends to be manly alongside the equipment.

Leah and me (yuck to the 10 year old glasses I've been wearing since getting a mild eye infection!!)

Hannah and Elijah, who was so taken with the "tractor" that he couldn't sit still for a picture.

Hannah with an almost-real-smile


Okay, I admit it, I photoshopped Pete into the picture! But I think I did a pretty good job :)

You did a great job with the photoshop. I can't do that, I have no clue how. Those are cute pix of the kiddos.

LOL Photoshop is so much fun. I photoshop my family into interesting locations for our holiday cards. Last year we "visited" Africa. The year before we were sitting among a bunch of penguins.
