Phriday Phun

Sawyer's First Las Vegas Car Show

Jeff and our three sons have had a life long love of restoring and showing classic cars, specifically, muscle cars of the '70s.  They are always working together on a 'project' car.  Each of the boys has their own car which they've restored with their Dad.  Most Saturdays, if they know Jeff is working on a car, they manage to show up and help.  During their teenage years, Jeff kept them busy when they could have been out getting into mischief, and they each knew their efforts would be rewarded with a cool 'chick magnet'!  Now they are in their late 20's early 30's, and a wonderful blessing is that they all have a common hobby, they all enjoy each others' company, and if they would admit it, they would all rather hang out with each other and their Dad, than almost anyone else, (excluding their wives for the married ones, and his girlfriend for the single one, of course).  One of our annual family events, is to spend several days at a big car show in Las Vegas where Jeff is a judge.  All the boys do everything possible to arrange their schedules to be there.  The women tag along just to be with the men, but I love to see my men together and feel so blessed that they love each other and want to be with their siblings and parents.  And now we start the next generation of car lovers.  Sawyer was a real trooper, and we thought he looked so funny with his ear plugs on.

What a fun hobby they all share! That is so neat that he is a judge, I bet he loves that. What a great family tradition to go down for the show.

That's great Phun. I love the little yellow earlplugs. I wonder how you got Sawyer to keep them in his ears.

Those ear plugs could almost make this an Easter bunny post. Very cute pictures.
