[First off, I need to apologize for the quality of the photos. The first thing they teach you in photography is that light is the most important element. However, I have never taken a photography class.]
We went down to Auburn for a family birthday party. Dwayne’s cousins have kids in their tweens and teens. If anyone can enlighten me on the familial relationship between my kids and their kids, you will have taught me something. But in the meantime, we just call them all cousins.
Trent (white), Noah (blue), and Alex (black*) took advantage of the sunshine and got out the football. My kids went outside to run around and started off playing chase, hide-and-seek, and of course, discovered how great the old apple tree is to climb.
But my kids were watching the big guys covertly, and Wesley was hooked when he saw them play ball. I will say that though the boys are giants, they are gentle giants, and not only let my three play football with them, but taught them how to tackle. Well, okay, they pretended that Kyla and Piper’s efforts actually made them fall. And then threw Wes on top.
If one doesn’t count the quality of the photographs, these might be some of the best pictures I ever taken. They capture the sheer joy of all the kids and the good, good hearts of the guys.
Take a look at Trent (the oldest) and Wes (the youngest).
Logan was inside during the games, but I had to get a picture of him here, too.
