...just like {GRANDPA}

 We spent the night at my parents house the other weekend and I came into the office to find this little cutie pie, with Grandpa's reading glasses on, "working" on important matters at Grandpa's desk!  Oh my...this boy takes my breath away!  He is so pure and so genuine and adores those he loves.  He adores grandpa and wants to be just like him and when I asked him what he was doing, he giggled and told me I was FIRED (fi-yuwd)!  (another cute thing he has been saying lately...)  
"Mom!  I am doing very important things here!  .....just like Grandpa!"

We dedicate a lot of our time together as a family! We love to go on picnics, play at the park, go camping and boating, play silly games at home, swim, have family movie nights, sing together, go on vacation, and spend time with our extended families which are very close and a big part of our lives.
