Manholes And Toddlers

My husband is in the excavating business, which means we deal in heavy materials like concrete manholes. He is currently on a job with a tight deadline but our materials suppliers have been backed up. Our precast supplier delivered some manholes when they were ready, but at $500 a delivery, it wasn’t worth it to have them deliver any more. On two separate occasions, we loaded up our four-year-old daughter and our eight-month-old son and drove an hour north with a trailer hooked to the back of my Excursion to pick up two manholes and then celebrate saving $500 by eating at Chick-Fil-A. The Excursion relished the challenge and handled it like the brute she is. We also like to think we are the only family of four to pull in to Chick-Fil-A with manholes and babies on board. Thanks Ford!
