Mocha Milkshakes

If you invite a couple Larsen boys (ok, so they just turned 20 and are anything but boys, but can I call them Larsen boys forever?) over for mocha milkshake experiments, it may not be long before they are on the (deadly, three stories high, requires climbing gear and clipping into the built in hooks) roof helping clean the gutters.
Or maybe they will wear a little girl's jacket on your head and follow the 5 year old around and around and around and around the woods and hills and yard listening to and catching parts of her ramblings and answering questions when you know the answers. Babysitting at its finest.
They may even go to great lengths to entertain little girls, like recalling your grass crown making skills from 3/4 of your life ago.

You may even get to watch them convince your 17 year old to do things that he wouldn't normally do! Peer pressure at its finest.

Then there's the alien act ...


And if you're really lucky, they might stay for dinner, get your husband to tell creepy nursing stories, and watch a movie until midnight. Favorite persons! I love these guys.

Brett, you da man getting up so high to clean gutters! Maybe the moral support up there helped, but you would never EVER catch me on a roof like that.

No, Kat, they don't actually babysit. But Grant walked around and talked to Ania for at least an hour, maybe two. I got so much done!
