How to Cheer Up A Trash Star

How do you cheer up one crabby Trash Star?

Here's a hint:

It has been Heidi's life long dream to ride in a Garbage Truck.  This girl has been enamored by garbage trucks since she was old enough to see more than just what's shoved in her face.

When she went to daycare at Pat's all of the kids would climb in the window every Friday morning and wave at "The Man."

If we were outside when "The Man" drove by she would wave and hope he would see her to wave back.

Imagine her excitement when we got to ride in a real garbage truck over the weekend!
 She was beside herself!  Now, mind you, this girl had had the opportunity to sit in a large number of vehicles.  From Semi Trucks to Police Cars to scooters.  But she was never as excited as she was to ride in this Garbage Truck!

Apparently the "Garbage Man" is a green garbage company.  They have smaller trucks that are easier on the streets and they take all of their waste to the incinerator.  They also have a yard waste service.  This is not a plug for them as they are not my service but they were nice enough to drive us around the block!

 And Grandpa was nice enough to take some pictures.

I wonder if this garbage man knew he would make a 5 year old girl's live long dream come true today.

Haha that is too funny! We live on 3/4 acre corner lot and everytime the garbage man would come Zayn would run outside and run along our entire lot waving and jumping up and down. I don't understand the fascination of it.
