So I went to Tractor Supply and got a little tractor and some farm animals to surprise him the next time he was here.
Jack drove the tractor and herded the animals and shoveled the poop. Then he took a snack break while Ali Ali and Willa watched with interest.
Mean while, Jack's dad Andrew and Justin were busy, searching through the cubby holes for toys from their own childhood. They discovered a major treasure trove of GI Joe action figures from the 80's.
Justin spent a good bit of time explaining to Jack which were the good guys and which were bad.
Uh oh! The bad guys have invaded the peaceful farm!
The big boys are working out a scenario . . .The blue napkin is a pond -- the perfect thing to do with the action figures who'd lost their legs.
Look like they're wading in deep water, don't they?
I'm not sure why the fellow in pink is guarding the poop...
But undoubtedly the strategists know.Note the cup of milk and the two glasses of Scotch in the midst of the action. . .
Justin helps Jack plan an aerial attack from the corner cupboard.
Meanwhile, I was in the kitchen photographing more action figures.
They're a wild and crazy gang. . .
