The 4th of July weekend continued on into the 5th of July.
The Mary Larrys held an impromptu get together. I'm not sure what makes me laugh more in this picture. The pretty bow? The background action? The proud walking with the shovel and the car? All of the above? Yes. Elliott loves the great outdoors. Amelia ordered Otis to practice a new Dried Pears tune she had just written. Unsurprisingly, it sounds just like a Yo Gabba Gabba song. Like father, like daughter. Amy thought that if Elliott saw Double Trouble eating healthy food, then he would want some too. No dice. Practicing for the beach. As you read this post, Elliott, Double Trouble, Amelia, Frankie, Phoebe, and (hopefully soon!) Charlie are all chilling beach side at the Jersey Shore.
The first six are from our Mid May trip to Philly.
They don't wear their Chucks enough anymore. The boy behind the shoes. Happy boy. Don't look back. Triple Trouble! The last two are from about a week ago. SHR and I went to go see Toy Story 3 and Sean and Rebecca came over to watch the boys. Sam made some food. Otis ate some food.
As you know, Otis has been obsessed with buses recently. But he hadn't actually ridden one since becoming so enamored. Jim and I decided to change that.
As the bus got closer, Otis got a bit confused. He's used to buses driving by, not driving up to him. He spent the entire ride with this quizzical look on his face. That is - except for when we passed by other buses and he cried out "Buh!" Park time fun. The next day, I took the guys to the Brooklyn Zoo with Bart. I didn't get any good pics but I do like this one of Otis looking at the monkeys.
Sticks! Bubbles! Scary monsters! Run for your life! Yu will save me! Captured The monster is back. Where the heck has Sam been?
Oh, there he is! Jim used Sam to hide from the paparazzi. Amelia attack. Otis tried to figure out how to ruin a tender moment. He didn't need to do anything though. The moment was ruined by Sam's shoe. Lie down for a picture! Put the shoe down! Oh, hello.
