Parker loses his first tooth!!! 5/23/14

Parker's tooth had been loose for about a week when he and Scotlyn decided to search YouTube videos on how to pull a tooth out with a remote control car. They decided it could be done with their Mater truck. She tied a piece of dental floss to Mater then to the tooth. Parker pushed the accelerator button and Voila', the tooth came out! He was so excited to get a visit from the tooth fairy that he made her a special picture of him sleeping and the tooth fairy looking down on him.
