Alternately titled: The Post With So Many Pictures Your Retinas Will Bleed
I found this
inappropriate funny card in Chicago, and couldn't pass it up. So it's what I gave my dad for Father's Day. Along with a ridiculously expensive small gift. He seemed to appreciate both.
He's been needing to cut the grass out at his land for a while, so Hubs and I loaded up our shredder and took it to him.
He seemed to enjoy driving his four-wheeler around and cutting everything down.
It's been needing a good cutting for some time.
My stepmother took the opportunity to do what she calls, "Grandma-ing," which is, essentially, carrying Cavan around until he thinks everyone is supposed to do that, and spoiling the other two.
It was so hot that day!
Yep. He thought the card was funny.
He would, though. It's right up his alley.
Grandma has decided sitting down with Cavan is infinitely easier than walking around with him! Note the dirty knees. She tried her best to keep him from crawling around in the dirt, but he wouldn't have it. The dirt was irresistable.
As is this face.
Sunday we went to my in-laws' house to eat way too much good food and spend way too little time with Uncle Rick, Aunt Kelsey, and Baby Harrison.
The babies really enjoyed playing together.
Cavan doesn't have any toys, so he was particularly fascinated by Harrison's.
See? Finally he's bigger than somebody and doesn't have to tolerate having his toys taken away!
And then Cavan did this, and started a whole new kind of problem.
He was just getting a boost from Harrison...
so he could then tower over the younger baby, and show him who's the sheriff 'round these here parts.
And then he needed a little help back down.
I bet Harrison couldn't wait to get back home.
"Aw. It's okay, Cavan. I'm good."
"So, uh, you wanna go ahead and give me that toy back now?"
Harrison had to get ugly, and after he did, Cavan didn't really want that toy anymore. He kind of just wanted the puke cleaned off his leg.
Then the boys had some much-needed Papaw time.
Cavan's not sure he really wants another baby sharing Papaw's lap.
So Papaw had to distract him.
And Harrison thought it looked like fun, so he joined in.
Now back to Cavan...
Cullen heard all the commotion and decided to join in.
Harrison thought Cullen might be trying to hijack Papaw's lap, so he had to get rough.
Chubs was seepy that day.
"Uhhhh... need a little help here, please."
Edited to add: But wait! What's that in his right hand, you ask? Why that would be a lollipop! He's holding his lollipop and sucking his thumb! So he really and truly is trying to suck all the flavor off his thumb before finishing off that lollipop! Do I have a genius, or what???
Yep. That's one of them.
Grandma thinks he's just trying to keep Harrison down.
Aunt Kelsey tried to distract Cavan with a book... so he'd leave her kid alone!
He decided he needed some Aunt Kelsey time...
So she gave him some.
Then it was time for the obligatory "cousins" photo.
It didn't matter what Christian tried, that baby would not cooperate. Cullen thought it was hilarious; Harrison was wondering if he should be crying, too.
A couple more tries, and then we gave up on Chubs in the group shot.
He settled down, so we put him back in...
only to have this happen.
Ooooooooh, it's really bad!
