The Bigger Stick War Just Escalated

The other day, Qannik and Typhoon showed off the big stick they found. Boom Boom responds and the bigger stick war just escalated.

Look what dropped from the sky.

Yesterday was one of those windy, gusty days that happens often on the top of our mountain. Our Tree of Life shed several branches including one somewhat sizeable one. Landon immediately claimed it as his own.

Having a little problem dragging it to the house.

Unfortunately for Landon, the branch was even bigger than the one found Sunday, so Hu-Dad had to persuade him that it was not making it back to the house. And the next picture explains that quite clearly.

Landon definitely won the bigger stick war.

    Landon knows when a stick invades the yard you attack it head on!! Good to see that Landon still looks great 4 years later.
