No such luck.
My sister Sarah and her son Callum visited us last week, and it quickly became apparent that Uncle Ryan is his favorite.
|Callum is a very active child and won't sit still with anyone--except Ryan!|
Sarah found them just chilling on the bed and snapped this photo.
|And here they are playing with a ball. Callum insisted on wearing Ryan's shoes. :)|
|Fun at the park.|
I tried very hard to win Callum over.
I took him to Niagara-on-the-Lake, Canada and let him ride a tractor:
I took him to a petting zoo, where we saw a "devil-eyed goat." Brian Fellows, anyone?
|"These animals aren't cute or cuddly--they're weird. I'm excited and a little scared." HA!|
I took him to Canandaigua Lake for paninis, gelato, and swimming:
It was all to no avail--Uncle Ryan is still his favorite. And really, why wouldn't he be? Not only is he super fun, but he also passed his dental board exam (we got the results!), and he gave up his bedroom for the visitors. (We set up a pack-and-play for Callum, and Sary and I shared the bed.) We came out one morning and found Ryan sleeping like this:
He's a very good sport. I guess he deserves to be Callum's favorite!
It was a fun week for all of us.
