“Who did our lion eat today?”

Oh, probably just some little blonde kid from up north. 🙂 (Hi from Legoland!)

Weekend Silliness

This is what happens when you let a couple of high-energy chicos pro-wrestle one another at a beach house...

...and then go hiking in the woods.

Greetings from Sunless—er, Sunset—Beach

Despite freezing our butts off last weekend (seriously, the temperature dropped 40º en route from San Jose to our Sunset Beach campsite), we had a ball as usual hanging out with tons of friends large & small. Henry, having fallen head over heels last year for our friend Jake's shovel, was delighted to bring his own shovel this year. To tell the tools apart, the boys dubbed them "Seymour El Macho" and "Seymour Junior."

Here's a gallery of some of the first-kite-flying, kid-burying, craft-making, surf-jumping, s'more-toasting good times. 🙂

Throwback Thursday: The Battle for Dad-O’s Face

If there's one thing I've taught my sons, it's respect for their elders. 😉

School’s Out!

Summer's officially here at last, and the Micronaxx are thrilled! Margot & I were able to catch Henry's kindergarten graduation ceremony on Thursday, enjoying some cupcakes & a mini concert (stay tuned for videos). Meanwhile check out our man celebrating.

Bros Behold Lowe’s

Awesome parenting technique:

  • Take dudes to In-n-Out Burger.
  • Take their calorie-amped little bods to Lowe's to burn off energy.
  • Delight them by buying four bucks' worth of "treats" (e.g. paint funnel, bucket).

Witness the results!

"Punch it, Dad-O!"

"Watch That Child"? I'd rather not. :-p

Sweet Hen o’ Mine

This is your son.
This is your son jacked up on a *lot* of frozen yogurt.
