Boys


I will be brief: I do love being one of the boys. I like doing boy things like hiking, cliff jumping, riding motorcycles and what not. I do. But I am not going to lie, after three 8-hour drives with all boys-teenage boys-I have had enough wiener talk, burping, farting and burning things to last me a lifetime. Unfortunately, these things are innate, rather than learned, behaviors. Case and point: Last night as Adam was getting Eli ready for a bath, the kid smirked and said while pointing (correctly, I might add,) "wiener! bum!...ha ha ha!" Seriously, how does he know to think that is funny yet? Adam said it was his proudest moment thus far as a father.

PS Did you know that burping and farting into a canyon that creates an extremely powerful echo NEVER gets old? You would think after three days, it would cease to hold all of the appeal...oh no.

I guess Alex and Cole corrupted your son a little at the ranch...or educated him? Whoever "taught" him, he is definitely Adam's son isn't he...

haha Ash, you are too funny! Your pictures make me jealous! I miss lake Powell!

That reminded me of Eli's sleeping fart that Adam was so proud of, as any respectable father should be in both cases. Eli obviously has all the ingredients needed for greatness.

burping, farting and talking about weiners never gets old in a house full of crazy boys. Get used to it, I know you love it!

I know, they would probably be best buds. He gets into my headbands every single morning and when I saw that post I had to laugh to myself.
I think it might feel good....but he likes to put everything all over his face and head. For example, he found the A&D ointment, which is alot like vaseline. It has a medicated smell to it though. When I found him (hiding of course) the entire brand new tube was emptied all over his face and in his hair. Same thing has happened with Lotion, hand soap, gel, sunscreen, conditioner and shampoo. I dunno what it is. I don't know how he manages to put it so close to his eyes and keep it out of his eyes.
