The softer side of Timmy

My husband isn't as rough as he looks in his pictures, he's actually very sweet.

Since we moved into our neighborhood 4 years ago, Tim has befriended the little kids that live on our block. If he sees them playing outside, he will stop and ask them how they are doing and chat with them for a minute or two. The kids think he's "cool" (so do I!)

The neighborhood kids have figured out that Tim likes bikes. Any kind of bikes! He collects bicycles and mini-bikes, he has several motorcycles.................I don't even know what all he has down there.

Many times in the summer, the kids will find Timmy to ask him to air up their bike tires or fix something. They will even knock on the door to ask him if he isn't outside. It's SO cute!

So yesterday when Tim came home from work, a couple of kids asked him for help and I happened to have my camera handy.

"Hey Timmy!!! Can you help us put air in this bike tire??"

The kids are Breana who lives across the street, and Kyle who lives a few doors down from Bree. They must be 7 or 8 by now. They were both so little when we moved in. It's kind of neat to watch them grow up these last few years.

Tim is in the garage getting his air hose. Bree is telling Kyle that it will be really loud when Tim turns it on. Kyle covers his ears. He realized soon after that the air hose wasn't as loud as Bree said it would be.

Tim takes the time to listen to Kyle's story about a really loud noise he heard the other day.

And now it's time to get the tire aired up.

He's so good with the kids!
