some people just can't grow up....



Nora and Austin rocket down the covered spiral slide...



Nora's lithe instincts take over- feet stretch one direction, tail stretches the opposite... Austin holds his position...



Nora struggles to maintain her balance- but it is a losing battle.  We see a smiling Mr. Incredible begin to emerge...



And there we have it- the red, covered, spiral slide has claimed two more victims... and the moral fo the story: sometimes you just have to kick your feet up at whatever life throws your way!

What's Wrong With this Picture?

He loves fishing...

...but comments snidely about 'the cee-ment pond in the backyard.'

He's....

Austin's Uncle Leroy!

Austin's only met him three times, this weekend was my first time.

He rarely makes contact with his family...
