Tigers burning bright

I’m clearly remiss in posting it, but on behalf of our newly minted first-grader & kindergartener, Happy First Day of School! 🙂

Muchachos con Manzanas

Just as we've done in the last couple of years (see pics & vids from 2011 & 2012), on Sunday we headed over to Watsonville for some quality apple picking. Highlights this year included seeing a little girl carrying her own Leo blankie; Henry "Strong like Bull" Nack supplying the power for a girl in a little John Deere vehicle with spent batteries; running into some Google amigos; and Finn very reluctantly petting Roscoe the apple-eating tortoise. Here's a little gallery from the day out.

Grandma Nack in the house

An exchange with Henry prior to my Mom’s arrival:

“Henry, Grandma’s coming tomorrow.”
WHAT the—? YOUR mom? She’s the BEST!! (She really plays with me!)” 🙂

As predicted, the guys are having a ball with Grandma, walking all over the neighborhood, grabbing ice cream, helping with gardening, and more. I haven’t had much chance to document the trip so far, but here are a few samples—including shots of the boys delighting in the new Lego car carrier Grandma sent!

Random morning greetings from Henry

I'll let our little selfie-enthusiast take things from here. 🙂

Flour Power

The boys & Grandma Nack share a love of our neighborhood bakery/flower shop, Flour Flower. In anticipation of her visit this week, we visited the shop on Sunday and made sure that the crepes are as delicious as ever. Henry was so jazzed about buying Mom-O some flowers that he kinda fell apart when she tried to politely decline. Thus we’re the proud new owners of a cluster of sunflowers.

Ol’ One-Tooth McGee

You know how a watched pot never boils? We were starting to feel that way with Finn’s front tooth: the darn thing has been shifting around and striking crazy poses for well over a month. We thought it would make its exit in Tahoe, then in Galena, then by the start of school… but it wasn’t until last night, when the car hit a bump & Finn’s knee flew into his mouth that it finally happened.

Anyway, the tooth is free at last—no bar fight required! Here you can see the Finnster trying to avoid showing me his smile during daycare drop-off. He only relented when I said I’d stick around & hug him in front of other kids unless he let me take a pic of the goods. 🙂

Hey Dad-O, do you think I’ll still fit in this thing? 🙂
