A good green bean

Every once in a while Jones will go on a hunger strike. He is very active in politics and believes that is the best way to stick it to the man. Ok really, he just goes on hunger strikes when he is teething and we just pretend he is being brave for a cause he believes in. Whenever he is on one of his strikes we like to tell anyone who he refuses food from about his strike and why he is having it. Here are some of the reasons:

Breast cancer awareness
Peace in the middle east
Acapella music only at Renovatus
Capitalism
Capitol one
Capitol hill

You know your average run of the mill hunger strike. We believe someday he will be a great leader.

But seriously, now he is on one of his hunger strikes. When he wont eat for a couple days we can occasionally trick him into eating one of his two favorite foods, plain rice cakes and green beans. Plain green beans, slightly cooked, long so he can hold one in each hand while he plays. Here is a couple pictures of my boys eatting their green beans yesterday. Aren't they the cutest?!

Way to cute.

Thanks Dodyb, I was thinking the same thing. I'm way too cute to be John Mayer...though I do think that I sing like him (but only in the shower)

cute little guys...ryan, im loving the hippie look, its working for you- something new and fresh and grungie, its good. man, you must be like, so popular now...

Ty said...

Love the chin rug.

It's so weird seeing Ryan all hip. What is going on in this world?

PS. I love that Jones' fav foods are rice cakes and green beans. He should live in a hippie commune.

Tara, it really is frustrating to have a line of people outside your door all the time. On one hand its flatering that so many people think that you're cool and want to hang out with you. But on the other hand I loose so much privacy because of my looks. I guess thats how john mayer feels. Just remember that fame and good looks aren't all they're cracked up to be. Take it from me, I'd know.

Rizzle... this is Jess' blog. if you have something to say, do it on your own blog.

with that said, it's like I don't even know you anymore, Ry... you look... you look... like Ronald said: hip. And your son is cute. I like him a lot.

i think i'm going to go on a hunger strike demanding that there be no difference between capital and capitol.

Those are really cute pictures! We can't wait to see you guys and Jonesie! Maybe he'll share a green bean with Izzy. She has a hard time focusing at the dinner table.

I'm going to quote you from now on when my kids refuse to eat. Only I'm gonna go with Free Love.

i just noticed that that boy in the top picture, looks very little like the kid on the couch. My, how Ry has grown.... but seriously, people... Jones is so.. old!
