Biz the Builder

With the estrogen fumes reaching ever higher concentrations in the Wheeler household, I decided it was high time to man things up a bit. Since the pediatrician claims that introducing Summer to the bench press is out of the question for another decade and a half, we settled for light construction equipment instead.

In a stroke of surprising good fortune, that very same day the city of Duvall was hosting a fair where the main attraction was a front end loader. After briefly posing in the cockpit, Summer’s attention quickly shifted to cotton candy. Once her true love had finished melting in the rain, I judged that we’d been man enough for one day and returned home to order some more hot pink accessories for the next “Man it Up” day.

(For the uninitiated, Biz is one of Summer's many nonsensical nicknames).
