We needed an injection of fun into our house of illness. Lincoln and Evan (and Viva--as if she cares) received light-up, noise-making swords (the older boys have something similar already--see first photo below). Bentley and Jake received new, foam pirate swords (see second photo below). B was quite excited to get a new pirate sword. Jake stepped on his a few months ago and it broke. Bentley even changed out of his pajamas today, so he could dress as a pirate!
Evan played with his brothers, but then he wanted to show his sword off to his mom. Bentley went downstairs to show great-grandma his new pirate sword (and to get his pirate bandana and spyglass). He discovered his little brother had shown up there before him. Evan likes to visit great-grandma!
