More Mayhem

Daddy Steve: We haven't talked much about Mikko and Tyler's antics lately; you might've thought the two rascals were finally behaving themselves.  Alas, you would be wrong.  They're still up to their usual mischief, sorry, adventures.  Some of their recent exploits have included...

Spelunking in the clothes dryer.

Mikko: We're searching for the Lost City of Mismatched Socks!

Creating havoc in the kitchen under the pretext of 'helping.'

Tyler: What would happen if turned it on 'high' and raised the beater"
Mikko: Let's find out!
Smiley the Pig: I don't know, boys, that doesn't sound like a good idea...

This little activity had us puzzled.  Turns out they were trying to see if the loaf of bread would work as an emergency slide "like the ones airplanes have."

Tyler: Evacuate the aircraft!
Mikko: Wheeeeeeeee!
Ezra: Right behind you!
Anthony: Hey!  That's for our supper tonight!

Lately Ezra has frequently become a collaborator in these schemes--a third musketeer of mayhem.  However, when caught by Anthony, he's very quick to distance himself.

Anthony: What am I going to do with you guys?
Ezra: Yeah, what's wrong you two?
Tyler: Hey! What do you mean "you 'two'?"

It seemed everyone in Gregoropolis had an opinion on their antics...

Bowie: They're like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.
Holly Belle: Of course, real pros wouldn't get caught.
Charles: Wouldn't they rather do something fun like create an Excel spreadsheet?
Patrick: Tsk! They're so illogical.

They are basically good boys; and almost always repentant, though never reformed.

Mikko: Worth it.
Tyler: Totally worth it.

Wonderful. They are doing what boys do best, experimenting, enjoying themselves by having a bit of fun. The last photos says it all reallly. Great attitude to have.

This made me chuckle! Those boys are just exploring life but on the edge! 😀

I’m sure it’s much more fun to try and find out just what can be done with everything and not just accept the standard. Could be you have a couple of future inventors there.
Ezra obviously still worries about what will happen if he’s caught,where as Tyler and Mikko just don’t!
Luckily we only have one such in the village Toby !
Though you’ll usually find Zak with him ,he’s usually trying to do damage control!

I wish you well with that pair you’ll never know just what they’ll get up to next....

The old saying 'Boys will be boys' comes to mind here...YOU included!
Being an ex-teacher I just love enquiring and inquisitive little minds. Looks like there is never a dull moment in your house with these two (plus an occasional tagger on) little rascels.
Weren't you tempted to put them in separate corners?

Oh no! My boys are starting to grab a rope and a flashlight to go and explore our known as moody dryer. You never know what this machine will do next! Opening its door in the middle of the act and spilling laundry all over the pace is just one of its more common funny ideas...

BOYS!! COME BACK!!! THIS CAN BE DANGEROUS!!! Don't remove the basket it keeps the door in place.... OH NO!!

Loved this post! Though I also believe, sitting on the two lovely matching chairs, they are already planning their next adventure.
