As you can see, New Kid was not interested in coloring his (that’s okay!)  colored his after this photo was taken, but he did love making up stories as he parked an ice cream truck in front of the school. (This is actually what happens at our school. I know! You don’t have to tell me how obnoxious it is to pass an ice cream truck every day at school pick up.) I’m not sure of the significance of the police cruiser in front of the pizza parlor. Maybe pizza is the new doughnut?

I love that he added in the little wooden traffic signs. My kids have gotten loads of use out of those signs over the years.
