Assembly Required

We finally received Landon's FIRST birthday present in the mail today. Poor little fella. His birthday was, what? A week and a half ago???

I was so excited to find the Radio Flyer box on the front porch when we returned home from lunch. Just look at it? Is that not the C -U-T-E-S-T little trike you have ever seen in your life? (Of course that baby isn't quite as cute as MY little fella!) I couldn't wait to see Landon ripping around the house on it.

In my excitement, I tore open the box (with Colin's help of course), grabbed hubby's tools and set to putting it together.

Oh. My. Gosh.

One hour and an aching back later, I have it together. Barely.

Is it really possible to insert screws into solid wood with just a turn of the wrist?? By the looks of their instructions, it is. There is a picture of a simple phillips head screwdriver in the list of tools that comes with the trike. They did NOT however, have a picture of a burly man HOLDING the screwdriver to let you know you needed MAN power to assemble it.

I'm waiting on Hubby to come home and tighten everything up.

I feel like such a girl.
