We've been looking around for quite awhile and finally settled on this riding mower. We've got almost 2 acres to mow, so a rider it had to be. It got delivered to us on Saturday morning--good thing, because after last week's rain it was TIME to mow! --and the boys gave it a try right away getting the lawn fresh for our family visiting later that day! Eli helped daddy for the whole 2 hours, or whatever it took. I guess he was "stick boy". We didn't spend a lot of time cleaning up the yard ahead of time because we really didn't know we were going to mow that day, so whenever they ran into a stick, Eli would hop down and get the stick and then they'd carry on. Last night after the kids were in bed I got my driving lessons, and it was fun! It's kind of like driving a go-cart! haha I get a little nervous on even a little bit of a slope, and I really didn't try maneuvering around anything at all, but still, it'll be a chore I'll be happy to help with from time to time! So here is our new ride!
