There's not a hole in his pocket

The boys came home, meeting us at Uncle Nate's for a cookout and it was GREAT to see them! They had a good time with Grandma and Grandpa, spending the week going to the Clippers game, a farm, visiting their great-grandparents, and even going to Chuck E. Cheese's!

We had great weather for the cookout we were having to celebrate Nate and Jeff's birthday. Nate's house has a nice backyard, where we spent most of the day. There were coolers set up with drinks and the uncles got Ben to get them drinks by "tipping" him. He'd put his earnings of coins in his pockets and I soon came to realize that they weren't the only things in there!

I may be the only one that familiar with the movie (besides Aunt Joanie), but in Bedknobs and Broomsticks the younger brother has an odd assortment of things in his pockets, like a bed knob for instance. Benny doesn't carry bed knobs around in his pocket, but you might be surprised with what you would find! He's very protective of his valuables and wants them to be close by him :)

I loved that movie as a kid! I got it from the library for Owen recently and he cracked up over the knight that kicks the soldier in the butt over and over again.

I should really have the boys see it. I would like to watch it with them! They really like when movies go from real life to cartoon. They'd definitely be into the knight scene, too :)
