These boys were cracking me up today.

Tanner & Carter each had a friend over to play today. There is a fire burning up north & the smoke has traveled down our way. The air quality is poor. There is a thick haze of smoke in the air. When I told the boys that we were going to stay in & play today, there were a few grumbles & disappointment on their faces. They had been eyeing the slip N slide in the back yard. Can you guess what the next best thing to a slip N slide would be inside the house? What? You can't guess? Neither could I-LOL! The boys then asked to slip & slide on the hardwood floors. I turned around for two seconds & this is what I saw.

The boys had gone into Tanner & Carter's room & put baseball socks & pants on for their Slip n Slide adventure. Way to use your imaginations boys. They had a fun afternoon playing Lego's, hide & seek, Slip N sliding on the hardwood floors, Popsicles, & wrestling. Thanks for coming over to play!

For your enjoyment, I'll leave you with a parting shot of Garrett. Each morning when I spike Tanner & Carter's hair, Garrett asks me to spike his hair too! I finally gave in this morning & we all had a good laugh. This boy has too much hair to spike! Oh well...It made him happy & he loved the comments he received while we were out & about!

I can't believe how bad the air is right now. It's suffocating! Thank you SO much for having my boys over. They had a blast. That's too funny about the slip-n-slide. Very creative, I have to say ...

Summer is always full of things you don't expect. But then I guess life is just that way! Thank goodness for your boys that you go with the way the wind blows.

We are having smoke here too - from the fires in Watsonville. The air is just filled with the smell. We had a house fire and lost our home when I was 19. Whenever I smell this kind of smoke it brings back that sad memory. Thanks for this post today. It has brought me a smile (!) that was unexpected.
Hi Boys!!
Love, Free

Too much fun. Garrett looks so happy to have his hair spiked. He always asked to get a mohawk in the bathtub. Maybe one day for real. When I got home, Tanner showed me what they did during the day and I just had to laugh. Surprised I didn't see Brody sliding with the boys. Looks like alot of fun. to bad they don't make slip-n-slides for adults.

Love the hair! We love playing on the wood floor with our socks too. Maybe we should get some baseball pants to complete the look
