Post 549: the hunting blind

I get what I get, not what I plan when I decide to do a photo story about the boys. I thought — and still think — it’d be cute to get photos of Andy in his new box playing. We played earlier, and he gave a wonderful performance you would have enjoyed…if I got it saved on my camera!

Of course, once I got my camera, the mood changed, Andy stopped being cute, and Dougy showed up to take over. He hadn’t played out for the morning yet, and here was a wonderful opportunity.

Andy's in the picture...if you look closely!

I try to tyease Andy out for a photo shoot showing how Andy not only took over the new box, he made it into the perfect hunting blind.

Too much temptation for Dougy! He came at a full gallop, and Andy retreated from the game!

I wrap the toy...Aw! Dougy just wants to play, and Andy can play if he wants to!

Maybe I won't play if Dougy's going to be a toy hog.

What the hey!? Dougy still wants to play, so I toss the wand toy bug his way.

I give Andy another chance to join the play, but Dougy's just too close and ready to go as far as Andy's concerned.

Woohoo!

Woo hoo! Andy just got up and ran away. Take my word for it.

This game is going nowhere fast!

This game is going nowhere fast. What started out to be fun lost its appeal as soon as Andy left. Poor Dougy! No one will play with him.

Don’t feel bad for Dougy. After I put the camera away, we went back to playing with the wand toy. Andy joined in, but played from the seat of my computer chair, a favorite of both boys because they like to catch the toy under and over the armrest!

=(^+^)=

Dougy decided to check out my progress (i.e. make sure I didn’t libel him). Apparently I passed his stringent test because he didn’t hit [Ctrl] [Alt] [Delete].

  1. haha…we are weird like that…we love to play hard to get…even if we really want to be up front and in on the action….sometimes we play too hard to get and nobody wants to play anymore. Thems the chances.
