My Own Personal Secret Service Men
I thought I'd share and maybe brag a little that I have my own personal squad of secret service men. They're kinda young, but they're taking their job very seriously. My twin sons, Seth and Ethan, who turned 10 last week (wow, everyone in my family is in double digits, now!) wanted to have their party where everyone dressed as secret agents. Well, we don't have huge parties, but their cousin and 4 nephews (my little grandsons) came dressed for the part. My son's boy, Steven, has the long yellow shirt with the extra small vest. His dad told me he tried to get him dressed, and no way, he wanted to do it himself. He's 5. My other grandson, Caleb, 6, came pretty much dressed like a regular spy, but my youngest grandson, Aidan, 5, thought he'd be a spy for the fire department. There must be some corruption in our local fire department? My great nephew, Brenden, 9, joined in, after my boys kinda forced him into it. My son's, Seth and Ethan, were so excited to get everyone together. I actually have been so busy helping with my mother-in-law, that I didn't really have a lot of time to work on this, but my sons took over on their own, and had a blast.
They made their own banner, that read "Spys Welcom". Actually, I couldn't get all the detail, but they really did a good job on their banner. They love to draw, and on all the letters of the sign, they had cute little spies doing different spy things. Pretty creative!
When Randy got home, he was pretty grubby, from the house he's building. The plan was, that he would take the boys for their famous dinner, chicken gizzards and joes at our local mini mart. Yuck! But, he's got the grandsons thinking this type of dinner is the greatest now, much to their mother's delight! Before they left, he told me, "I'm pretty grubby, I need to change first". I say "What???" "Are you kidding?" You're going to worry about what you look like, when you've got six secret servicemen going with you to mini mart for dinner? He could have dressed like a clown and fit in! I made him take the camera, but since I had to go through town anyway, I ran in and got the photo with him in it with them. Good memories. They came home to get in the hot tub and splash, and then had a Gilligan's Island telethon. It amazes me that my my own kids are growing up with my grandkids. They're all good friends LOL. Life is great, and I love all my own little secret agents.
