The addiction started with Daddy's car (a spiffed up Honda Civic), then it was the rental "Baby Car" (above). Then there's Pop's truck and Yeh-Yeh's car. My car, not such a thrill...I don't know, I
love loved my Lexus SUV...and will miss it terribly since we are now, officially, a mini-van family. Though, I do give the Honda Odyssey kudos for the double sliding doors that open by remote...handy with a toddler in one arm and an infant in the other! Oliver is obsessed with "my van" and must know its whereabouts at all times.
The addiction elevated to a new level over the past couple of days. Oliver is now quite chummy with the local law enforcement! In all the right ways of course...he is only two, after all!
On Sunday he got to sit in a big red fire truck and today it was a police cruiser - with flashing lights no less. The cop was smart enough to turn off the engine as Oliver climbed behind the wheel. Perhaps there's already a bulletin out about his love for vehicles at such a young age!
He was one happy camper...and me without my camera on both occasions!

Oliver is like my son Louie. He's nuts about everything that has wheels! Louie fell in love with cars when we first brought him to an auto show. Now, he just can't get enough of them. I can see your little Oliver growing up as a race car driver one day. And my Louie, well, a car shop owner, perhaps? =)

Why didn't you have a camera at that time? Tsk. It was a great moment to capture. Children will always do unusual things so be ready with your cam next time. =D

Congratulations on your minivan! Oliver's passion for cars is so amazing. I'd love to see him in that police cruiser. Well, there's always another time for a moment like that. Be sure to always have that camera on your purse! :D
