This Child....

This child....

....is going to be the death of me. Cute as can be up in this tree isn't he? Well, this tree now has a story. This is his favorite tree in Fresno. We actually have to drive to go see it. It's on a favorite old street we like to walk on. I believe I blogged before about walking Huntington Blvd. Anyhow, this old tree is huge with large roots on the bottom to climb on, and wide arching branches, just perfect for perching in. This last week I took Hunter and Ainsley for a walk there again. He climbed up in the branches and started "whoo"ing like an owl. He loves to pretend he's an owl up there. I turned around to speak to Ainsley for a second and I looked up to see a stream of water arching from the upper branches and I heard giggles. I walked around the tree to find my son whizzing off the tree, playing target practice, with his pants down around his ankles. He thought it was great fun. I was mortified. This a very busy street with cars whizzing by, and walkers and joggers all over this sidewalk. You should have seen the looks on the passerbies' faces. And here is my son peeing off the highest tree on the street in all his glory. I tried to get him to stop, but it's hard to stop midstream I guess. He thought it was great fun and was giggling up a storm. I tried to talk sternly to him after I whipped him down off of there and got his pants back up, but it was hard to be firm inbetween his chuckles. Especially when you don't know whether to die of mortification or start chuckling too.

Anyhow the theme at Iheartfaces this week is "blue". Hunter is as cute as can be with his blue outfit on and the mischevious sparkle in his baby blue eyes, but mostly I had to pick this photo to share this story with you.
Head on on over to IheartFaces for more "blue" photos. I couldn't get their button linky to work today, but you can click on the name.

  5. I'm not sure which is cuter, the picture or the story! Don't worry you can torture him for years to come with that one.
