“I Am Your Father!”

IMG_1591 IMG_1592 IMG_1598 IMG_1599 IMG_1610 IMG_1617 IMG_1618 IMG_1626 IMG_1627

Our son Ben and grandson Brian are playing with some very cool Star Wars light sabers. They turn different colors and make the same sounds as they do in the movies including the when they slash through they air and the sound they make when they crash together. They’re a lot of noisy fun.

During the epic battle Thomas yelled out to his Daddy, “I’m your father!” in a Darth Vader voice. We all burst out laughing.

With Love,

    How cool! Where did you get these? I know someone else who would love to play with these! 😀

      My wife Heidi got them for our three adult children because they grew up on Star Wars. Thomas is only allowed to play with one of them when he’s with an adult because it would be easy for a 3 year old child to accidentally knock over and hit things and people if playing by himself or with another young child. Sorry, I don’t know where Heidi bought them and she is at work. I’ll email her and ask.

    Love seeing a father and son engaging. Heartwarming.

      I loved watching them play. Ben was tired after a long week and was able to duel at about the same height as Thomas by sitting down on the floor and leaning on a pillow and just swinging his arm around with saber around. Ben and his wife Erika started up and are running three or four companies (I’ve lost track of exactly how many) and still make time to do a lot of things with Thomas, invest weekly Family Nights with us, etc.

  5. Awww, the cutest things, are the smallest moments.
