The Young Man & The Fort. 🙂
On Saturday we journeyed to San Francisco to show the boys the local St. Patrick’s Day parade. The cloudy skies & bluster made things feel like a bit of the Old Sod. A few highlights:
- It being the 100th anniversary of the Easter Rising, we got to teach the boys a bit of Irish history.
- The guys were of course obsessed with catching candy & little toys thrown from the floats, at one point enlisting a fellow bystander’s umbrella to claw at some distant Tootsie Rolls. Henry was proud to walk off with a small plastic velociraptor he promptly named “Sean” (as, I guess, an Irish dinosaur might well be named).
- Noticing a car carrying state rep. Phil Ting, we couldn’t resist having fun putting on an Irish accent: “Ah boys, I tell ya, if it’s not one Ting it’s anudder.” :-p
Man, we’ve been having a heck of a time getting baseball season underway. The guys are really pumped to get onto the field, but thanks to some much-needed gifts from El Niño, we’ve been washed out of both practice & games for the past couple of weeks. While we wait for the skies to clear, here’s a micro gallery of the lads & their teammates getting into uniform for team photos. Hopefully pics from the field will soon follow!
Finn’s a big fan of both Ed Emberley drawing books & the iPad app Adobe Sketch. I kinda dig how he combined the two here. 🙂
Area ham approves of carbs. 🙂
Our big guy had a blast all day long. In this little gallery you can see him enjoying a cake topped with his Lego doppelgänger; getting The Dangerous Book for Boys from Grandpa Liggett; blasting Mom-O with a “High Eight”; and getting Captain Underpants from Grandma & Grandpa Nack.
Happy birthday to the marvelous Mr. F—cha cha cha! 😀
