Two Boys, Their Dog, and a Wagon

On Memorial Day, two days ago, I took the boys out in our neighborhood just before sunset to get some photos of them with Duke. It's been a long time since I've done that with more than just a snap or two with my iPhone. And it's been raining a lot, so when the evening was looking nice, I jumped at the chance to take the three of them out for photos.

Duke kept wanting to jump out of the the wagon and look around. I tried to get the boys to hold on to him, but I still found myself putting him back in time and time again. The boys thought it was hilarious, which worked to my advantage. I actually love this shot after he'd just escaped...

Ethan wanted a photo with just him and Duke, so I obliged, of course. I really love this photo. It captures Duke's sweet face and Ethan being sweet to him. He loves his puppy.

Logan wanted to do the same and he's always really playful with Duke. They're like two puppies getting into mischief when they play.

I had them in their red, white, and blue flag shirts because I thought they complemented the all-American look we had going...with the wagon and the dog. Also, it was Memorial Day, so it was perfect. I took the opportunity to take a few photos of just the boys.

They desperately wanted me to pull them in the wagon. But they are a smidge heavier than they were when they were little and I used to pull them all over the neighborhood. But, I had them each take a turn anyway and I got a bit of a workout!

Logan looks so serious! He was tasked with making sure he held on to the leash really well...look how many times he had it wrapped around his hand. Sweet boy!

I don't know what made them laugh here, but I love their smiles! I kept telling them to take off their shoes...because they were crocs. I envisioned them being barefoot in the photos so I didn't care which shoes they wore out there. But they kept putting them back on! And in this set, I didn't notice they had them on (again!) until I went to edit these! Ugh!

This puppy better know how lucky he is...he is truly loved.
