Busy Little Man

I mentioned earlier that we took a trip for my parents' 25th wedding anniversary.  It was a lot of work, and couldn't have come at a busier time in the year, but it was a wonderful celebration.  I got to play photographer, and could make a book out of one sequence of shots.

The site was a simple lodge-style community hall near a park, which was filled with rented tables, chairs, linens, and china.  Everyone was seated at their tables, my folks entered, and a dear friend/pastor shared some words about love and commitment.  My folks took turns declaring the same to each other, but there was an element not typical to most 25th-anniversary gatherings:

The little hand you see belongs to my step-brother's son, who will be three in a few months, and he loves his grandma. :)  My parents have guardianship of him and his 8-year-old sister and have taken care of them for over a year now.  He did NOT want to be separated from her.

Here he is giving me the evil eye after I took an opportunity to try and get him back to his chair.  The flailing and squalling that ensued convinced me to stick to my camera duties.

He was content to stand holding their hands for about 4 seconds...

But, then he remembered his new shoes!

So much to do up in the middle of everyone!

Oh, the laces are new too..

I didn't post the ones where he was trying to kick over the mic stand, or the ones where Grandpa had to hold it down with his foot...

Oh, there he thought he'd try again..  He was demanding cake by this point!

Yep, he's a little whippersnapper.
