Our Dirt Road

The machine that runs only at naptime.
There has been a big project going on on our street.  We aren't really sure what they are doing.  We think they are going to eventually repave the road, but first they had to drop dirt on the road, then pound it in with the enormous roller, then dig the dirt up and put it elsewhere on the road, then bring more to us and drop it on our road and then pound it into the ground again.  This has been done over and over.  Our house shakes and rattles.  One day I thought the windows were going to break.  They bring the big trucks, rollers, and diggers by around 1:00 p.m. everyday.  I don't have to tell you that is exactly naptime at our house.  We are happy with the way the road looks and is monitored.  No one is allowed down our street unless they live here.  This makes our usually busy throughfare of a street not very busy.  It is great and right now very quiet.  Maybe we can let the kids play out front.  :)  Here are some more shots of the work going on out front.

Digging up the dirt and putting it in yet another big truck.
