giving princes william and harry a run for their money

Last weekend, I got to meet up with these 2 brothers at Hyland Lake Park Reserve:

Handsome, handsome, handsome. Aye yai yai.

And just as good natured.

Each boy knew the park like the back of his hand and led their mom and me all over, finding hidden docks and benches everywhere.

The youngest was “5-year-old boy” through and through.  Totally fun to hang out with.

The oldest is a budding photographer himself and was scouting out “shooting locations” for me. We’d finish a shot and BAM! he’d be running off to the next great location.

I’m thinking of hiring him as a part-time assistant.

A dashingly handsome part-time assistant.

Wanna see a cute 18 month old?

You wish you could tickle that belly through the screen, don’t you?

I knew it.

This is Jackson and he is about as even-keel a kid as they come. I think his dial is permanently set on “happy camper” — it’s awesome. He was quite fun to hang out with.

I happen to know his parents and so I know that’s where he gets his easy going personality. He is a lucky boy to have such a positive home in which to grow up.

Jackson’s Mom was a total sport while I was there. She let me hang out with Jack and take pictures inside while she stepped around the corner for a bit. And then she helped me in the yard (bubbles!, she brought out bubbles!) when I needed a little assistance.

I couldn’t have asked for a more painless session.

And I just have to include this last picture because Jack looks exactly like his Mom in it.

He also looks like he could be the leader of the cutest toddler mafia ever.

I don’t know what it’s like at your house, but over at our house, things are Shrek-tastic:
