The cover of yesterday’s local paper:
We went to Junior Ranger Day at the Colorado National Monument last Friday, and there we encountered an intrepid young reporter/photographer.
Fisher will forever be annoyed by this reminder that for two weeks out of the year, he is only a year older than Rhys. (The caption reads "Fisher Newman, 7, and his brother Rhys Newman, 6, try out the rescue shoulder litter used by the Mesa County Search and Rescue Technical Team.")
Also: isn’t Fisher looking uncommonly handsome? You’d never know, from this photo alone, that not ten minutes earlier he was growling "STOP!" at me in his Exorcist voice as I attempted to restore some semblance of order to his be-dreadlocked hair. (Check out that sidelit dimple. That is so totally cute.)
Also also: doesn’t Rhys have the ultimate too-cool-for-school picture face? (He is too cool for school. That’s why he doesn’t go. That, and I’m afraid they would speech-therapize his adorable widdle ewwocutionawy impediment out of him.)
Also also also: family members (or those non-weirdo friend types who are interested), you can click on the picture to get a nice big version suitable for desktop wallpapering or something. If you’re getting tired of that darling little Augie picture you already have, that is.
