using my phone for more than calling

big d got me a new phone for my birthday. one of the things i like about it is that it has a camera. i am not a photographer, i am not even close. but i still need to take pictures, and i forget the camera a lot. i usually don't forget my phone. so it's cool that it has a camera. i got these a couple of days ago.

jimmy and fussy with their girl cousin. can you see them dragging her? you can't see their faces, mostly just imagine her going along with it, until she realizes that she has no choice. my boys are like that. it's all fun and games until you find a frog (or snake) in your pocket, right?
this is where we were headed. to see the sheep. it really looks colder than it was. it was a beautiful spring day. if you look close you can see a baby sheep. who knew sheep were born black? probably sheep did. but i did not. i got other pictures of the sheep, but it is all their back ends. which, while funny, isn't nice. i couldn't help it though, the sun was shining, and i couldn't really see what i was taking a picture of, with the glare on my screen.
harry showing off his mad skilz, like walking and complaining at the same time
fussy being un fussy. look at those mountains behind him. nice huh? and really, it looks cold because my kids don't know how to dress for mild weather. it's been a really long winter.
and this is how boys get stinky. actually they roll in pee. at least that is what my parents said. but i didn't get pictures of that. and i know that boys are always stinky. i've become used to the smell. they smell sorta like these barn animals.
jimmy loves kids. he loves smaller kids. i think he secretly wants to beat them up. but he still enjoys being the "parent" to any smaller child. she looks like she is enjoying him being right there too, huh?
enjoying being outside, leading the younger kids into the road. where are the parents of these kids? yeah, that is right, i'm taking pictures.
fussy and i stopped at the pond on our run the other day
yeah, it was windy, but the ducks were out, and who can resist feeding them stale gummy bears and throwing rocks at them? not this fussy.
i think he had some sunshine in his eyes. to which he was screaming because it has been a long time since we had seen sunshine. "what is that glowing orb in the sky" he would say? actually, he did tell us the other day not to eat the sun. good advice kid, good advice.

so that is what i had sitting on my phone. besides pictures of diapers. which i don't think you care about. that sounds gross until you realize i'm selling my stash of cloth diapers for extra cash i can use for video games. we have a problem around this house. it's called boys. and they eat a lot of food, break most of the furniture, and want to play lots of video games.

and yes, i realize this has to be the most random post ever.

I love the randomness. Those mountains look amazing! And it's true-- boys really are stinky. Even the cleanest sort.

Boys are great but yes they are stinky and the bigger they get the stinkyier they get. Until they get a girl friend then they are stinky in a different way they discover colonge
