So Guess what they did today??

Grandpa taught David how to check my tire pressure!!! lol

Good thing to know so you can flatten your mommy’s tires huh? hahaha

 

I like to walk with Grandpa…

His steps are short like mine.

He doesn’t say…

“Now, Hurry Up!”

He always takes his time

Most people have to hurry…

they do not stop and see.

I am glad that God made Grandpa…

‘unrushed’ and young like me.

It’s Veterans Day and Grandpa came to see David.

He brought another Airplane.

This time it was a rubber band launcher airplane.

No…you do it Grandpa…..there it goes!

After they broke both rubber bands …

they made ice cream and coffee on the upside down tricycle.

David got cold and put on a heavier blue jacket…

then they went for a walk.

A Boy and His Grandpa (part 6)

We went out to my Dad’s on Monday to visit for Father’s Day.

Of course my dad was busy playing with David. They did many things …

First they got the tractor out:

They went for a walk …

IMG_3239

David rode and Grandpa walked a lot side. They gathered some rocks at the park up the hill for David’s little machines.

Then they got the remote control car out:

Grandpa gave David driving lessons up and down the driveway.

Then it was David’s turn to drive…he is a very fast learner!

IMG_3272

They got a snack and something to drink

and then…it was time to play MAN’S

If you don’t know what playing man’s is – it is WORK ….

That is what every GOOD MAN does…

“A MAN IS A HARD WORKER !! God wants us to be good workers like your Dad”–that’s what Grandpa says to David.

David says “Mhmmm!” in agreement.

and they went to work.

when I came out to see what they were doing this is what I saw:

IMG_3277

David and Grandpa were loading rock and dirt….and that was a heavy one.

IMG_3285

David is working on the tire …it needed some air!

IMG_3286

They loaded the truck and hauled it over to the other side of the driveway.

IMG_3287

And they dropped of their load…

They went on like this for a good hour

Talking about being hard workers

Fixing trucks

Hauling Loads

and being GOOD MEN!

all while talking in their manliest deep voices..lol

When they were done they were both  SWEATY and HOT from a hard hours work.

I love how my Dad plays

teaching little lessons all along the way.

Who else but my dad would haul dirt from one side of the driveway to the other just because they were workin’ and playing man’s!!

I like to walk with Grandpa…

His steps are short like mine.

He doesn’t say…

“Now, Hurry Up!”

He always takes his time

Most people have to hurry…

they do not stop and see.

I am glad that God made Grandpa…

We took a trip to Grandpa’s house.

David got a bug catcher.

He thought that Grandpa would have lots a bugs at his house, so we brought the catcher and tools when we took Sarah to stay for the weekend at Grandpa’s.

We pulled on to the drive and David began to say

“Hi, Grandpa!!

I like Grandpa!

He is my best friend ever!”

so sweet! :0)

As soon as my Dad was finished showing us the work he had done around his house and yard. Dad said….

“ There’s the porch if you

want to have a seat

or you can go in, I’m with him!” 

And they turned on their heels and were off..

On an adventure.

David said “ you got a shovel?” ….yep!

IMG_3072

They went digging for some bugs.

I snapped a few shots and left them be…

in their own little world to dream and imagine.

Later I found them under the trees.

Looking for buried treasure!!

( Dad said later that they had found a dime. :0)

IMG_3074

They were looking under bricks and digging holes.

We barely saw them the 2 hours we were there.

They came in for a bite to eat and then…

they were off again to the park to play. :0)
