One of the reasons I married him.
And probably one of reasons we have been married so long.
(he even has his own blog but it's not for the faint of heart)
When he Skypes with our grandchildren,
you can never can predict what he will do.
He dresses up in hats, uses props, or plays tricks
of some sort with the kids.
Here he is with binoculars.
"Ohh Papa", they all said in unison.
He has so much fun entertaining them.
This picture was taken off the computer, while skyping.
It was grand kids turn to entertain Papa.
They got dressed in their water vests.
We all laughed at who was funnier!
Here they all are!
Ila May had to take her vest off
because she couldn't sit down with it on.
We are heading over to Idaho so Tom can meet Silas!
This will be so much fun!
