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… 😀

Looking Forward

Looking Forward Back when I was a just a little guy, I remember looking forward to playing outside, going swimming, ice cream, and getting up in the morning to start a whole brand new day!

As I got a bit older and started school, I remember looking forward to going to school, recess, show-and-tell, and playing after school.

About the time I was in junior high, I remember looking forward to the weekend, summer vacation, snow days, and hanging out with friends.

In high school I looked forward to the weekend party, skiing, a bit of underage drinking, and whatever little bit of mischievous mayhem we could find.

College brought on looking forward to the weekend (and week night) party, legal drinking, girls, girls, girls, and more girls.

After graduating college and getting married I looked forward to doing well in my field of work, getting promoted, hanging out with our friends, a bit less drinking, and only one girl.

Now that I am a Dad, I find myself looking forward to something i have never…ever…looked forward too…
