The Drawing Power of Mario

Oh, how I miss that cute smile!

Look who brightened up our usually lonely weekend! It always does my heart good to spend time with my beloved baby boy.

And look who joined him last Saturday night! My younger son lured my “third son,” Chase, for a quick visit from Rice University with the promise of their favorite Nintendo 64 game, Super Smash Brothers.

Will Donkey Kong rule?

I love how well the two of them get along and all the fun that they have. Of course, they’ve known each other most of their lives. If my older son could have joined them, I would’ve been 100 percent happy.

But I guess two out of three ain’t bad.

(Singing the song? I know I am!)

This was the last photo I took of my “third son,” Chase, before he left for his summer internship at the end of May. We then didn’t see him for almost three long months . . . until he finally returned home and visited us yesterday.

As soon as he walked in (but after he and my older son completed a complicated handshake ritual), I proceeded to grill him question him about his experience. I can’t help it . . . it’s the journalist in me needing to get just the facts, sir.

Having Chase back with us was just like old times.

This looks familiar!

Literally!

As soon as they could get away from me, the BFFs moved to the game room and continued where they had left off.

Once again, literally.

The boys played Super Smash Brothers Brawl.

Back in May, the guys played Super Smash Brothers Brawl as their last videogame together, before work and the miles separated them.

Here we go again!

Here we go again!

The more things change, the more they stay the same!
