Makes Me Smile

Henry loves his fan, spending most of the summer parked in front of it despite our keeping the house at 78F on the hottest days and cooler when possible.

FWIW: The fan is usually kept safely positioned behind an ex-pen (fence) to keep fan and fur well apart.

… and the streamers are normally not there, either!

In Other News…


Zachary has zero interest in the fan, and after skimming Henry's pictures and realizing SOMETHING in there would work, I opted to just run Zachary through his favorite tricks instead of setting up an entirely different shoot.


Mr. Zachary
Zachary: "Ready!"


Stick out Your Tongue
Zachary: "High-5!"

Yes, believe it or not, the last two pictures (above) are NOT the same shot, although they were taken consecutively.

What are the chances???

Henry: "Watch your aim."

Henry: "Excuse us for a moment."


Recycling Retrievers
Zachary: (Ack Ack Ack!!!!)
Henry: "Heimlich Maneuver?"

Zachary: "Will you grab the corner."
Henry: "Ewww… it's soggy."

In honor of Earth Day the boys decided to Transform a grocery store bag into a receptacle for recyclables, which will someday be transformed into something else.

Yes, Zachary really will fill a bag with wadded up paper balls, although for some reason these kept sticking to his mouth.

Henry: "… and then what happened?"

Whatcha reading?

Henry: "Gulliver's Travels!"
Zachary: "By Jonathan Swift."

Is it good?

Illuminated
"Yes!"

Looks like the boys have settled down to a good book - Gulliver's Travels - with a fancy Illuminated cover.
