Easter Sunday

Gotta tell these hilarious stories from Easter yesterday involving my nephew Gavin (he's 2). My family is still sitting at the dinner table chit chatting while Gavin is permitted to go in the backyard. There's a little playground back there he likes to play on that is in perfect view through a big window situated right in front of the dinner table in the dining room. The following all took place within maybe 30 minutes. Sooo much funnier to see in person of course.

First, we noticed him casually walking to the playground...which would have been fine if he didn't have a hammer in his hand he apparently found that my other brother left out. So Spencer (Gavin's daddy) opens the door to retrieve it and as soon as Spencer says "Gavin, come here", Gavin is running to the playground fully aware that he is now doing something he isn't supposed to and proceeds to hide in the covered part of the playground thinking he out smarted daddy. Funny thing about Gavin is when he knows he has something he shouldn't, he'll normally throw whatever he has in an effort to dispose of the evidence before he hides. I think the hammer may have been a little too heavy to throw, thank goodness. By the way, the rest of the family is all snickering while watching through the window.
Then, maybe five minutes later, Spencer retrieves gardening prunes from Gavin who was chasing the neighbors cat. Priceless.
After inspecting the yard for any other things he shouldn't play with, he's released back outside.
So he's playing on the playground when someone notices he pulled his pants down ( a new fun trick he likes to pull). So everyone looks out the window as he starts to run towards the house with his pants around his ankles when he totally eats it in the grass. And then he gets up and makes it to the back door where Spencer is waiting to pull up his pants. Everyone is roaring with laughter in the house. It was too funny watching him try to run with his movements being limited by the pants around his ankles. You could really see the determination on his face. I don't know where these kids come up with this stuff, but talk about entertaining!
