Calvin, oh Calvin

So, I still have a lot to catch up on blog-wise. Benjamin came home from exchange, James came home from his mission, I went to Idaho with Sophie, we went up north to visit in Ironwood, we hit a deer, the list goes on and on! But this picture of Calvin HAD to be shared.  Back at the end of May, Michael took the boys fishing one at a time, and the boys loved spending quality time with their Daddy.  Ryan came home very happy and excited and remembering every detail, ready to tell me all about it.  Calvin came home looking like this:

That's right, Calvin fell in!  Apparently Calvin got a little too wiggly and fell head first into the lake!  Michael was right there to pull him out, and the water was only a foot or so deep, put little Calvin was COVERED in mud.  He came in the door wearing nothing but his boots and his Daddy's shirt and a whole lot of mud.  This picture doesn't quite do it justice.  I had to clean out every crevice of his face with q-tips. Can you guess the only detail Calvin remembers about the fishing trip?  Poor little Calvin.  Of course he would be the one to fall in!

And here are a couple of pictures of Calvin from last night.  Grandma and Grandpa Walton came into town to visit and took Calvin on a ride on a real train and then took the kids to the Mall of America to ride the rides.  This is how he looked when I opened the car door to take him to bed.  Aren't grandparents the best?  My kids are never happier than when they are spending time with their grandma and grandpas!

I love that last sleeping picture...what does he have, a lollipop? :) Grandparents are the best. And Calvin is the best too.
