Going on a mission
He tells them there is a mission. We have to jump into the car and rush home. We have rocket boosters on our car and we need to watch out for the bad guys. The boys absolutely love it. Their little imaginations are great and basically anything Richard says they run with. "hey
daddy, there's a bad guy behind us" Rich says, "ok, we'll turn and they will be tricked. phew, we tricked them, we lost them". boys, "yeah, good job daddy". Literally the whole way home they play this game. Landon says, "Daddy, there's bad guys beside us". Richard says, Shoot at them. Then we hear Landon make gun shooting noises and tells us he successfully took care of them. The funniest thing happened last night, and it's probably something that you had to be there, but I don't want to forget. There was a car in front of us and Richard slows down and starts telling them we can't let them see us. He says, "duck so they can't see you". And both boys at the same time, dip their heads down and duck as far as they can in their 5 harness car seats and stay there until he says they look up again. It was the funniest thing.
Also - they love to go on hunts. Richard will play "going on missions or hunts" with them throughout the house. We have to turn out all the lights and they put little head lamps on or flashlights and the run around the house doing special ops and shooting people, and dropping and rolling and "keeping mommy safe". So if you ever come to our house, do not assume no one is home if the lights are off - we could just be on a mission. :)
I love it so much.
