Yesterday afternoon, it was nice outside. Terah, Jacob, Oliver, and I went outside. I had my camera to take photos while Jacob and Oliver mostly played. We did try to pose them a bit, but the overall plan was to just take some photos of them doing their own thing.
So I wound up taking 824 photos. Hurray for digital cameras. We narrowed that down to a few of our favorites, which you can view as a slideshow. I’ll highlight few of those below.
Jacob walking down the drive way, gazing at all the beans coming up off in the distance
Hmm, Oliver, let me see too…
Running is fun!
Goerzen’s Law of Child Photography: If you attempt to get them to pose, a minimum of one boy will have a weird expression at any given time.
Also, chances are good that a cat will sneak in and also do something.
My imagined conversation for this one: “Here Oliver, this is how you use a piece of bark.” “Quiet, I’m trying to eat this grass.”
Oliver decides that grass stuck on his teeth isn’t fun
No explanation for this one.
Classic brothers. Jacob is using a piece of bark to mess around in some dirt, while Oliver quietly learns how to do it. He never said it, but I can easily imagine him saying, “Here Oliver, here’s what you do with bark: you dig up dirt like this! It’s funny!”
Guess I better watch where I point that camera…
Here kitty — get ready for some more petting… *thwack* Strangely the cat seemed to love it. Our other cat avoids Oliver.
Jacob deriving a great deal of joy from telling us that his shirt says “big SPIDER”. He came up with that joke himself and thought it was hilarious.
This is one of a few photos of Jacob wearing a suit that I once wore.
It’s hard to stand still when the hammock has a great “train whistle” on it.
I have no idea what he’s planning here. But really, I think I should be afraid.
It’s… a fridge door. Yay?
