I bet you didn't know swings could turn into a contact sport


Donny called out, "Hey, Remy, let's swing!"






Where Donny goes, Remy generally follows.






"Let's play bumper swings."







Because when boys swing, they don't just swing.
They have to figure out how to make it a contact sport.







Of course, being five years apart in age, their sizes so different,
Remy ends up getting hurt, usually.







And Donny usually tries to make him laugh to make things better.







It works.




The boys went on a safari with their grandparents yesterday.
My mom took lots of pictures that I hope to share soon.

I remember playing bumper swings. Fortunately, my little guy just wants to swing on the swings right now - I suspect that will change in a few years

Boys are just awesome like that. I grew up with two brothers who managed to keep my mother busy! Your guys are adorable!

They look like summer-lovin' boys.

Did they take Annie with them, at least?

Sounds like something my older brother would want to play with me when we were younger!
