Grandpa’s Glory – Part II

Back in October, I wrote a post about Ace’s Grandpa, my Dad.  Ace and his Grandpa didn’t get a long too good at first.  Grandpa would say “Hi!” and Ace would scream like a banshee!

It was tough on Grandpa, but things have been getting better…

Ace, Momma, and I spent all weekend at Grandpa’s just hanging out and swimming in the pool!  We had a blast and got some nice tan lines as a result. 😀

As you probably know, Ace loves to ride on the mower, and when Grandpa started his up Ace wasn’t going to quit until he was taken for a ride.  It wasn’t hard for Ace to convince his Grandpa for a quick ride on the mower, but a quick ride turned into 20-30 minutes of lapping the yard.  😀

And after a long day in the sun, nothing is better than a nap in the recliner…

Grandpa and Ace Napping In The Recliner

It makes me think back to when my Grandpa took me for rides on his mower.  Something I will never forget!  I’m going to have to dig up some pictures of me riding on my Grandpa’s mower and napping in his recliner…and post them here of course.  😀

Sometimes it’s scary how much Ace and I are alike… 😀

      Sweet! I’m not banned in China! What do you gotta do to be banned in China?

      I heard some rumors about your blog while you are gone, but I can;t tell. 😀

    Nothing like a bribe to get kiddies to like the older folks!

    My dad does the same with 3yr old Caitlin! I can’t say I approve it all the time though!

    By the way, you have been tagged!

  6. I agree with others who said those pictures are absolutely priceless, especially the one in the recliner.

    hehe so glad that Ace and his Grandpa are getting along, particularly love the sleeping in poppa’s arms photo! too cute 🙂

    • Jared says:

      Thanks Kylie! We went don this weekend again and they passed out in the chair together again. I think it is going to become a ritual every time we go down to see them. 😀

  8. Thanks for sharing these great memories!

    Jared it’s a wonderful thing when your Dad and your son connect. Glad it happened. (Usually honkin’ big man-toys like a ride-on mower or tractor help a lot here, too!)
