Sometimes, you just gotta LOVE your brother.

Like, really hard.

These two. Oh what characters! Let me set the scene. It was potentially the hottest. day. ever.
I had a babysitter malfunction, so I was forced to bring my two monkeys with me to work. Thankfully "P&E's" mom is suuuuuppppeeer cool, and a semi-new and completely fabulous friend, who didn't mind seeing them. She even brought them lollipops. However, having the two of them with me on a session wigs me out, because they have a penchant for running pell mell through my shots. It's maddening. Add to that the heat, and I had sweat stains the size of texas on my shirt. Thankfully, their mom was very happy to compare hers with me, making me feel a bit less like a beast.
Despite the elements, P&E turned on the cute for me. Apparently they sell cute in a can now, because it's hard to be this cute naturally. Ok, I take that back. It's completely natural for these two.

Now this, THIS makes me giggle every time. Oh the cuteness. He looks like Calvin from Calvin and Hobbs, who I happen to think is the cutest imaginary child ever.

Not to be outdone,

At the end, we let all four madmen romp in the sprinklers at the park. Oh they were refreshing! I even totally used Finn to get in the water myself. "NO, I am not a crazy person, I just need to acclimate my baby to the water so he understands it's fun...or....something..."

Parker and Easton. It is no surprise that keeping these two still for pictures is near impossible. One of our favorite things is to visit them and watch them go non-stop. We love these two little dynamos! Grandpa and Grandma Jones.
