I’m going to start this picture post off with a story.
It was Thanksgiving take two and everyone was sitting around upstairs, having finished their dinner, just talking and joking. Then someone said the dreaded words: Has anyone seen Oliver?
After a solid round of “no’s” we started looking around the house. No Oliver upstairs, no Oliver downstairs (this is about the time panic starts setting in, more so then after the words “Has anyone seen Oliver”. Then Diana said “He’s outside”.
Phew, right? Well sure, of course. But that’s not the end of the story. We aren’t even at the best part yet.
You see, Oliver shouldn’t have been able to get into the (thank god) fenced back yard, because all the doors were closed.
All the doors except for the cat door.
My sweet, honest little boy was more then happy (and more then a little proud), to tell everyone and then re-enact exactly how he climbed through the cat door.
I’m really going to have to work on fattening this kid up.
On to the rest of the day
When we first got there only Uncle Peter and Baki were there (everyone else was on their way). Oliver really wanted to play outside because it was one of the last nice days of fall.
Quite intrigued by this wheelbarrow – quickly renamed a tractor – because it had a bucket.
I couldn’t let him try this all on his own…so after him trying to move it, I helped do a couple of laps around the backyard. I wish it hadn’t been wet inside still from rain the day before, I would have LOVED to put him in it and run around! Next time.
After a walk around the street with Baki, it was time for some Daddy time.
Don’t you worry about Baki though, she found someone else to take care of. Hi Anna!
Back to my two guys. I mean, do I really need a reason?
Uh oh, the lions and bears have come out to play (I’m going to have to get him a tiger to make that very common sentence in this house more fun to say)
SUCH a goof.
At this point in the day, unfortunately, everyone arrived and I became far too preoccupied with talk about the upcoming wedding, and then with all the incredible food, to take more pictures.
Wait, I lied. I got this gem too Sorry Jen & Alex, Abbey is totally the star of this one
