With a little help from a friend, the fleet of waste management trucks cruised by the family’s home in Henderson, Nev., to wish Lena a very happy birthday. One was even decorated with pink balloons, banners and a birthday sign, making the display all the more special; Riley described her kiddo as “blue-truck obsessed” in a grateful Facebook post.

“My heart might explode from happiness today! I didn’t think Lena’s birthday parade with decorated cars by so many of my amazing friends could be topped. But I was wrong!!” the proud mom wrote online last week. “This morning we woke up to a visit from … SEVEN Republic Services trash trucks swinging by to wish my blue-truck obsessed 3-year old a happy birthday!!”

“Times are hard right now, but the world is good & people are kind. Maybe that’s why I can’t stop crying when I think about how awesome this surprise was!” she added.
