Worm Ride, Anyone?

Justin and Tyler have spent a lot of time outdoors lately. Mainly because I need some space. I turn on the hose and try to lock them out. Oh, and the boys love to be outside too. This Saturday was no different. Tyler and Justin played in the mud making mud balls to throw at the wall and building volcanoes. Ryan was busy trying to de-grassify our back bed so I can plant wildflowers. As he did this Justin began collecting potato bugs and worms. Justin came running in the house at one point, to find me eating bon bons and watching survivor reruns, to ask an important question. "Can I use the wagon for worms?" "Sure," was my response. And he ran out the door.

Later in the day Ryan informed me that Justin suggested that the worms were bored. He thought that they would enjoy a ride in the wagon. I had to check it out for myself. Sure enough, Justin had created a mound, filled the wagon with worms and was indeed pushing them down the hill. When I asked him about it he kept saying, "Do you think they're scared? Do you think they like it? I think they're having fun." It was probably one of the cutest dang things that boy has ever done. He was so serious about all of it too. He was genuinely concerned for the boredom of his worms. Oh, man! You gotta' love boys!


  1. Too cute! Is this what I have to look forward to?!?

  2. I love the nudey pick of Tyler in the mud. He was exfoliating right? Probably not.

  3. That Justin, always looking out for others. How sweet to give them a ride! I found a super long skinny worm in my garden last week, that's good, right?!
