Happy Birthday & Traditions

Today Number 4 grandchild is 12 years old! 
We have made it a tradition...that when our grandkids have their birthday, we spend time just with them. As they have grown we change things from year to year...this year we took our two 'June' birthday boys camping for a night. It is such fun to have them alone and see their individual characteristics!
One always wore his coat...the other was plenty warm without!

One preferred Geo caching...

One preferred fishing...

We were laying in the ditch and threw it like this ....
They both LOVE their pops and his stories... 
(Hmmm....I think maybe some of the stories about his young year shenanigans should of been kept to himself??)

  3. My husband loves to tell stories to the grandkids...That is exactly why we love to spend time with our grandkids, we get to really know who they are. I've been wanting to go geo-caching.
