Behind the Scenes at My House: The Photo Shoot

One of the coolest things about having wide age ranges within the family is watching the boys learn to tolerate and interact with each other. This is especially true when it comes to the youngest. He’s a handful. Truth be told, my husband and I are as much at fault as his personality. We get tired of the constant fussing at the kids and tend to let him have way more freedom than his older brothers.

When we received the Air Hog Hover Craft to see if it passed the teen guy test, we had a certain wild young man who decided to join in the fun. My teen guy wanted to be the one to show you exactly what the Air Hog is like, but he ended up sharing the spotlight with his photo bombing little brother.

Take a look and see if you can relate?

    In his mind, he wanted to show everyone the size of the air hog. Now, you can see the size compared to that little hand.

And yes, the Air Hog Hover Craft is awesome. It is a huge hit with the teens who drive it, the little guys who chase it and the dog who has treats dropped to her from it.
