The first time I heard him speak, I knew we'd be friends. It wasn't some great connection, or some wonderful words of wisdom... it was the fact that he had grown up about 10 miles away from my small Oregon hometown. Now, 2 years later, I am glad to call John a friend. His oldest boy, Kade, just turned 8. His birthday present? Every kid's dream... a puppy! They adopted Shester from the pound and decided that documentation was needed. So we headed to a park fondly referred to as the "dinosaur park" near their house.
Here are a few of my favorites...
Evan was a little ham right off the bat :) That continued throughout the entire session.
Kade was a little more timid, but was loving the time with Shester.
Kade stole dad's hat...
The newest member of the family... Shester.
I think Evan was probably plotting something.
Kade is loving his birthday present!!!
I think these two are two of my favorites!So so cute.
After Kade pushed Evan down the slide, John encouraged Shester to join in. He did. Happily.
This is probably my favorite. I promise I didn't pose these!
John entertaining Shester while the boys played. I'm not even sure he knows I have these :)
Family picture time.
This is just so their personality!Thanks for the fun boys!
