No favorites here

Should someone look back on this blog in 5 or 10 years, I might be accused of playing favorites. The previous three posts show MJ only. So, in an effort to be fair, here is a picture of my amazing, funny, smart and incredibly handsome boys!

No pictures, please.

Not so Cooperative

I have been trying for days to get a decent video of the 'Commando Crawl' that MJ has been sporting. She has not been very cooperative. She crawls like crazy, until I get the camera out. So, for the Grandparents, and anyone else interested, here are the badly lit, shaky handed attempts. The first one is the crawl. The second is what she does every time I try to take a video of the crawl.

Our trip to Africa

What? You didn't know we took a trip to Africa? Complete with a tiger ride? Let me show you the pictures...
Oliver: Mason, let's go on a trip.
Mason: OK, hop on.
Oliver: Mom! We're going to Africa. It's over there by the door.
Mason: I am a tiger taking Ollie to Africa.

Mason: That was a long trip. I am going to take a tiger nap.
Oliver: I am going to take a nap with my tiger pal.

Mom: That was the EASIEST trip we have ever taken.
