black and white Wednesday - (little) boys of Summer

Stay a child while you can be a child.

I would have loved to have seen my expression when I looked out our
kitchen window and found Will and Miles hangin' out with their
Batman and Robin capes and masks positioned on the playset.
(Which was entirely their idea!)

I know I giggled.
And proceeded to watch the 2 caped crime fighters
run, jump, swing and pretend to fight the invisible 'bad guys.'
I used to call Batman and Robin, 'Super Heroes' and Will
politely reminded me that they are 'crime fighters.'

Little boys.
I love their active imaginations and creativity.
And endless energy.
(Most days I love the energy part.)   ;)
He's keepin' me least I hope so.

After a cold, wet Spring, we are delighted that Summer has finally arrived.

I love these Gail! Can't wait to show Liam. He's going to squeal with delight when he sees them. I really wish we lived closer so our two boys could play together. I know they would absolutely LOVE each other. It seems they have the same exact passion for super heroes... oh wait no... crime fighters. :-)
