The Boys

On Friday morning I had to work. This left Jim alone with our two boys - Bennett and Murphy. Jim spends a lot of time with his family - all of us. However, since we've had Murphy, he has not really had an opportunity to experience the joy of having both of them all to himself for an extended period of time.

As it turned out, the boys had a great morning together. Although Jim would be the first to admit that being alone with a two year old and a puppy is a bit much. Fortunately, Grandpa came over to help for a little while. They spent a good part of the morning outside enjoying a beautiful spring day. By the time I got home, everyone was in good shape, dressed and the bed was made!

I think Jim should do this more often!! (ha - just kidding Jim!)

Go Jim! But I wanted to comment on how nicely Bennett is holding onto the swing. I am so impressed! What a big boy!

I don't know how you can live in a house full of testosterone!!! My dear girl you are outnumbered. Although, your dad was surrounded by female hormones. ( Our last 3 dogs were females. ) It all evens out, I'm sure. Lol. Bennett cracks me up when he does his he-man pose and grunts! It's hilarious. His face turns red, his upper arms bulge and his legs shake when he tries to give grandpa some help getting out of the chair. NOW, THAT IS FUNNY.
Friday was such a beautiful day and I just love those pictures of the boys playing outside and Bennett seemed to be delighted to be in his bed in the camper along with Murphy. Just tooooo cute.
Lots of love, hugs and kisses
grandma and grandpa

Oh, my goodness! Pictures of your little boy *and* the puppy? It's almost more cuteness than my heart can take (and by that I mean THANK YOU)!!

Those two are adorable and it looks like they've become quite the little pals! Bennett looks like he's doing great...can't wait to see him again.

... and if a picture is worth a thousand words, we would say that a good time was had by all.

No matter how old you get Jim, it is always great to be known as 'one of the boys'.

Summer has offically started with the camper sleepouts. Murphy just seems to fit right in there.

What a smart dog - to lie down in the shade of the BBQ.

Bennett, what will we do with your 'baby swing'? How quickly you have grown into the 'big boy swing'. As Grandma says, you are just so darn cute.

See you Thursday, big boy.

Love and prayers
Mummu and Poppa
