For the first time in weeks, the weather was nice enough to take the Stooges outside to play today. With the mind numbing experience known as the Furniture Market behind me, I was able to take the kids outside and have a catch today.
Ciera is playing softball this year, Rakes is playing T-Ball, and Trot is playing terrorize the neighbor's dogs, so a good time was had by all. This picture was taken after we came inside after 2 hours, and they were all good and worn out.
What on the television captured all three of their attention enough to cause them to look like wax statues? A baseball game? Or maybe a Sponge Bob marathon? Nope: Return of the Jedi. Rakes was in HEAVEN.
"Dad, what is dat dudes name with the cape?"
Me: "Lando Calrission".
"Oh, Bando Talerission. Me dove him, Dad. He's tunny".
I failed to mention he was fashioning a belt to hold a plastic bat (his lightsaber) and a gun ( laser blaster) while we had this conversation.
May the Force be with me.
