Can't get enough of our grandchild!
















Halloween was another good excuse to make the drive down to San Diego to see Lila. The drive seems shorter and more pleasant as we wait with excitement to see her. She brings back so many happy memories of when our daughters were young and that age. Hear are a few shots from the last trip.

Babysitting Lila

We went down to Ashleys to babysit Lila so her and Byron could go out for her birthday as part of a gift to Ashley. Watching your grandchild as a birthday gift is kind of like giving your wife a new big screen TV with a Cable sports package for Christmas. We had a great time and we will be down again next week for Halloween. I find that seeing her helps me to understand what things are of real importance. Love of God, love of our neighbor and family relationships. That is where true happiness is found. These were some of the fun memories of our weekend. It is amazing how such little things such as laughing and playing with a balloon can bring us such joys. Hopefully I can remember that is truly the little things of life spending time doing the right things that brings true and lasting happiness.
