The pictures were taken in 1996 up at the cabin. Nick was 8 years old and Chris had just turned 6.
The boys were playing around outside and I just happened to have my camera. I think we had just finished taking the pictures of the boys in the previous post. Nick wanted me to get a picture of him hanging from the tree branch.
Chris thought that seemed like a pretty cool idea and wanted his picture taken as well.
Okay, who remembers moon boots? Well, Chris was donning a pair of vintage 1980's moon boots when all of the sudden he ran into some trouble.
(Let me tell you, the cabin is a kid's paradise for weird and funky clothing from days gone by. Nothing ever gets thrown away at the cabin, therefore there is a plethora of various articles of clothing from several different time periods. Chris, never wanting to be slowed down by having to tie his shoes, often chose to wear the beloved moon boots. Perhaps, not a wise choice for hanging from tree limbs.)
One boot off in the grass...
One boot securely snagged on the tree limb...
One older brother laughing hysterically ...
while all the blood rushes to the younger brother's head.
Meanwhile... mother is also laughing hysterically
while taking pictures.
