Happy Birthday to Emmett! He needs his own little electric Porsche to drive around.

Happy Birthday.

My son is 7. He loves dad's Porsche (through much brain washing), but has NO inclination towards cars at all.

And yes, he pronounces it PorschA, nor Porshh. He corrected one of his friends a few weeks ago, I was so proud.

Garage
When I get home from driving my 911, I let it sit in the driveway to cool down before I put it back in the garage. Emmett is running for the door when I go back out. He sits on my lap and I let him start it and put it in gear. I keep my hands off the wheel and let him steer it into the garage. If he gets off track I stop and tell him what to do to correct it without me touching the wheel. I only control the gas, brake, & clutch. When the car is where I want it, he pulls up the E- brake and turns off the ignition. I have as much fun helping him as he does steering the car for me.

Happy Birthday Emmett. Ask dad to explain to you why boobies are more fun to play with than pelicans.

Hey Emmett!

Welcome to Pelican.

Ten years ago, my son gave me a toy pelican just like yours. His name is "Scoop".

Help your Dad look after that Porsche.
