Flying Leap

I was ignoring my kids while reading people's blogs when I heard Will's tiny voice call out: "Flying Leap!" This is what I saw.
He actually worked up the nerve to jump off.
We played this game on my bed (jumping off the frame) for a while yesterday. The water tables I set up for them today only bought me so much time and one (andrew) wet kid. Andrew has removed his shorts because of an earlier episode of puddle jumping.
Now we are playing a variation of Hide and Seek that involves me morphing btwn myself, a wild clown and a dangerous Rhino. Andrew gets really afraid of Rhino me so I have to quickly morph back into the wild clown. Will likes it. I wonder what that means?
Also, does this mean they will go to sleep tonight at a nice decent hour?

Please post a video of the dangerous rhino.

Oh, and regarding your comment today--I totally don't believe that my dad asks about people's injuries before he asks about the cars . . . my mom always feels like she has to talk him up!

Ashley, how do you think of this stuff? The rhino video comment has been making me laugh all day.

I have decided to give up, summertime isn't for going to bed early.

I think that Luke and Andrew might be able to put their heads together and come up with some variations on dangerous rhino. This week sometime?

I really want to see these other versions of you. Clown Alexandra sounds like it must be hilarious.

Benjamin is so excited to see his cousins! We all are! Especially if it involves dangerous rhinos and clowns.

I'd be interested in a wild clown video, actually.

Cute kids. I hope I get over my parenting paranoia before Alex is ready to jump off things or perform flying leaps.

Those are really cute pictures! I love the way Will looks with his hands in the air ready to jump! What fun brothers!

I'm with Ashley, my mom tries to make my dad look better than he is.

We lived in Oakton, VA for a summer during law school. We were in Orrin Hatch's ward. Are you in that ward?

Wow. That's a pretty big jump. I love it. It's great to see kids use their imaginations as their moms ignore them to do other things.

I think I would be afraid of the clown and the rhino. What a fun mother you are! Looking forward to seeing you. Love, Momo
