So Carter loved the riding lawn mower. Then he was terrified. Then he started to warm up to it, but only if it was off and nobody threatened to start it. And now we're back to him loving it, noise and all. He used to want to sit inside and watch Trev mow, but now he wants to ride. And while taking rides on it is fine, Carter makes it a bit difficult to actually mow the yard in a timely manner. Plus it is extremely loud, so he has to wear ear protection. I know he doesn't look like he's enjoying it, but really, he loves it!!
