Happy Matching Family
My boys, as you may have noticed, dress in matching clothes quite often. This is a tradition (habit?) that goes all the way back to June of 2003 when I went from having one child to a pair of children. Here is our very first family portrait as a family of four. Although you can't really see it, both baby Benjamin and Nathan are wearing while collared shirts and tan shorts (overalls in Ben's case).
And then we all wore them, and got the bucket-loads of attention that a group of outrageous Disney fanatics wearing clever personalized Disney themed tee shirts deserve. Did the boys groan and shy away from the attention? No. No they did not. They cheered and squealed right alongside the goofy adults every time someone said, "Whoa! Those shirts are so rad! Where did you get them?"
Yes, I know that Nathan and Ben and their habit of matching will (might?) end at some point. But I hope we can count on another few years of dressing like a Happy Matching Family at the Happiest Place on Earth. It's just more fun.
And if that photo above doesn't make you want to go to Disneyland, then I'm just not trying hard enough!
