Boys will be boys

Michelle and I were just looking for an excuse to pull out her camera last Saturday. It took a while to warm up, but the boys (after putting Brody in the middle to separate Ethan and Lincoln) finally resigned themselves to having a good time. The secret to the craziness and smiles was me in the background jumping around like an idiot, peek-a-booing an Elmo doll at the boys until I was hoarse. Anything for a great photo.
We finally talked the boys into hugging each other and got some quick photos...but things deteriorated quickly, as their balance was thrown by the new pose...
I really wish we'd gotten the next frame, but we were too busy rushing to save the screaming boys who were stacked on top of each other in the gravel behind the cinder block wall. Just think of the fond memories we're instilling in these young minds.
