Finn’s flu-induced fever, combined with his fascination with the name of Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, topped with a sleepy lion hat, results in the following. Also known as: A typical Monday afternoon with Finn.
We enjoyed quite the day out last Sunday. First we hit Marina State Beach near Monterey for some baseball tossing (40 catches in a row with Finn!), sand castling, and taunting of waves (which sometimes won!). On the drive north we pulled a spontaneous pit stop to kayak with sea otters, after which we “cooled off” (as the boys love to say) at Marianne’s Ice Cream in Santa Cruz. Here’s a gallery plus a salty vid from our day out:
What happens when some ladies come over as our goofballs are winding down the evening? Hint: It involves relentless photobombing by Finn. :-p
Long ago the dudes decided that all of Finn’s lions were boys & all of Henry’s owls were girls. That way they could get married & have kids (i.e. the many little lions & owls in our pride/parliament). We were thus delighted & unsurprised when Finn noted at the breakfast table the other day, “Look, Leo & Ollie are having an epic romance!” 🙂
Flower-lover Henry stops to smell the actual roses. 🙂
Even before I’d landed back in the US, I got to see (thanks to Mom-O’s texting) a pair of little homecoming drawings that the guys whipped up for me. I love the prayer flags that Henry drew (which he says he remembered from the “Himalayan Megaquake” documentary we watched) and “you, a.k.a. Dad” caption Finn added. Are these guys great or what? 🙂 You can click each image to view it larger if you’d like.
After too many weeks of getting rained out, the lads were able to take to the field with their team yesterday. Both scored a few solid hits & showed good hustle in the field. Henry was able to walk off having taken a shot to the midsection. :-p Check out little gallery of the game.
