Do You Remember Your First Tonka Truck?…

This is for YOU Little Man! You very own Caterpillar Tonka Dump Truck! For me?

It comes with blocks…Yes, we know how much you love blocks.

Yes, you can even ride in it and push the honk button.

Well, it didn’t take you long to figure out how to drive it…

Yes, Grammie loves watching you play…

Telling Great Grandma and Grandpa how excited you are about your new truck…

You couldn’t leave the other Great Grandma out…showing her how everything works.

“To Be In Your Child’s Memories Tomorrow…Be In His LIFE Today!”

I wanted to share another precious moment with our grandson…BECAUSE a very big thing has happened in his life!

Little Man has moved to…….ARE YOU READY?….



to the big state of TEXAS!!!! You know they do everything BIG in Texas.

So I have decided to make a trip out there in a few days and check out his surroundings.

I will make sure to report back on my findings♥

So I do have to ask…Did you or your brother ever have a Tonka Truck?

  1. Can’t say I remember my first truck – but I remember my son’s 🙂 Course I’m not sure I ever owned a truck … Saying hi through the Wordless Weds … yes, I’m a day late … stop by if you have the time!

  2. My first Tonka Truck was surely put to the test! It was the usual Yellow and metal…I rode that truck into the ground! I loaded it with all sorts of stuff, from dirt to myself, and rode down the hill by my house growing up! I even bought one for my son’s little brother Jordan, (see my post day out with Jordan) I hope he enjoys it as much as I did! Zak, my son was not much of a trucker, he has always been more of a gamer! Either way they are both My life!
    Your Grandson is adorable! I hope he enjoys his new Tonka Truck as much as I did!

  3. Hi Laurie! He is so sweet with the chubby cheeks, lovely eyes and the tender look in his eyes! He must have bee so excited about the truck 🙂
    The Beoynd class must be so ecxiting! I would love to join, but I do not have Photoshop, Lightroom nor an SLR camera … And as I read the course description, it would be good to have these. I just have a little point & shoot 🙂
    At the moment I’m taking Tracy Clark’s course The Art of Composiotion {that I won from the Fall Picture from Bubbles & Lights 🙂 } and I’ve rolled to Susan Tuttles Workshop on deleting with Pixrl ,it is starting 4th February … I look forward to learning more about editing pictures! Do you have a Lightroom?
    I look forward of seeing your posts & being inspired even more,

  4. I don’t know who’s luckier, you guys or him, he’s so so so so cute!!! Have you guys ever entered his picture in a baby contest? He’s got the most perfect little face, lol I know, I say it every.single.time, I can’t help it.

  5. He’s so adorable. I remember when I bought a Tonka Truck for my nephew a few years and how much he loved it!

    Have fun in Texas. Can’t wait to see pictures from your adventure.

  6. What a cutie! I hope you’re somewhat close to Texas and can visit him often! I’m in TX — definitely a big state! My son had trucks — I still have one of them – a little garbage truck (because he would watch for it and call it “ga-gage” truck!)

  7. LOVE seeing the Nolan pix with the greats and grands! And what a perfect motto – “to be in your children’s memories tomorrow, be in their lives today!”

  8. aww, so sweet!! my father works in the construction business, so yes, i did have a small tonka dump truck and i loved it!! 🙂 enjoy your trip! be safe and have a wonderful time with your family!

  9. I don’t remember my first tonka truck. He sure is a cutie and it looks like he loves his! : )

    Thank you so much for joining us at Communal Global for Tuesday’s around the World.

  10. Your grandson is a charmer! Yes, all the boys in our family have had Tonka trucks. My middle child (son) learned to read when he was four years old. It was his idea to learn as he wanted to be like his big brother. I rewarded him with a new set of toy trucks when he was finished our lesson book. He still loves to read and wants a real truck soon… ( He’s 15 now.) They don’t outgrow their love of trucks!

    Love your precious little guy. Tonka trucks were a must in our home when our two boys were growing up. You knew they were well built and strong for those tough boys. Boys are so much fun, very physical and at the same time sensitive and loving. We started giving our grandson the Hess truck every Christmas. It is a keepsake and if you buy one and keep it in the box, and buy one for play, they may be worth something in the future. Our grandson, Jake has enjoyed these trucks every year. Not maybe as sturdy as Tonka but unique. Keep on enjoying your grandson and all the best to them in BIG TEXAS! Have a safe trip.

  12. All your photos are adorably cute! I remember my children playing with the Tonka trucks. They are grown now. One works with small children at a private school in another state. She probably is still playing with Tonka trucks. A good tradition !!
    He will have fun in Texas! So very cute!!

  13. I know you are going to miss the baby! Thankful you can go for a visit! He is adorable! My boys sure did love their dumps trucks too!

  14. So sorry to hear that your grandson has moved – I know how that feels. As for the tonka trucks…I remember my brothers and my hubby still has one his TTs.

  15. Lovely photos — he’s a cutie! I had four brothers and what I remember about them and Tonka trucks is how they could play for hours outside building, digging, destroying. . . oh, and also two of them got in a fight over one truck and one of them clocked the other in the head with it. Trip to the hospital for stitches. They still laugh about it.

Please share your thoughts...and thank you for the love!
