Happiness... is a lawn mower... yeah, yeah, vroom, vroom

May 5, 2009 - 10:44 AM

I don't know about you, but I LOVE to mow the lawn.  I love to mow it, weed wack it, rake it, etc.  It is one of those things I look forward to every year... mowing season!  This is great too because Josh is not as excited as I am about lawn mowing so it is, happily, my task (we truly are the perfect match). 

However, as life would have it, due to this bum foot of mine, I cannot mow the lawn this year.  At first, this was no big deal considering we had 2 busted mowers in our possession.  But as the rains have come and gone our lawn was growing at an increasing speed and now in dire need.

Figuring out what lawn mower to buy was as arduous as figuring out what is the best dishwasher.  Both items have bad rap sheets and we wanted to make our investment in them last as long as possible.  Josh's research led us to a great dishwasher where we did pay as little as possible but not buy a piece of crap.  He then proceeded to do the same search for our mower and while we did pay more than we wanted, we are hopeful in the fact that it has the one good rap sheet out there.

But you want to know the best part?

Zeke and the Mower

Can you believe my little boy is this big?!  (Dude, am I really getting that old?)

This mower rocks the house in warranty, motor, features and our son can mow!  The design makes it so that there is nothing shooting out anywhere and it has a variable speed that Zeke can literally run behind it and mow like a champ!  True, he needs help on the front hill and getting the lines straight, but what he still has to learn in skill he makes up for in utter enthusiasm!

What a blessing indeed!
