If you give a boy a weekend…


He will climb inside the TV cabinet.

He will ride his Green Machine.


He will shoot some baskets.


He will climb on the neighbors shed and jump off of it about 10 times in a row, and tell you this is his favorite building in the whole neighborhood, and that some night he’s going to camp out on the roof.


He will participate in Earth Hour with his family, and play with fire.   (Don’t do this at home kids….)


He will take some photos, and together with his brother Marshall and his mom and dad he will help put together a photo collaboration.  (The other brother, Everett, was too grumpy tired from a weekend retreat to participate.)

    I love the collaboration. It’s wonderful. Won’t all of these that you make together be so fantastic bound up in a book one day?
    p.s. is he related to my youngest son? i think so.

  2. love the texture photos! go mama and bad ass m.e.n.!

  3. I have loved and adored my little Canon Elph for many years now. Loved it. Until you got your new camera. Now, I want what you’ve got. Granted, you were a good photographer before you got the new one, but wow, do your photos look so much better!

    P.S. Your worm is quite adorable!!! jan

    I love it all! Seth wants a green machine soooo bad. I’m trying to convince him the next step from his big wheel is a real bike with training wheels. He thinks it’s a green machine. And your collaboration makes me smile from ear to ear.
