Congratulations! Do you suppose that you could look any prouder there Gramps? That picture speaks volumes about you, and about love for families.

I didn't ride yesterday either because I had offered to help my son-in-law work on his deck.

It turned out to be a men's day out. Me, my son-in-law, my grandson and my great grandson all working together. We all had a great time and got about twice as much accomplished as the son-in-law had projected. A good day!

Congrats! And when she needs a fresh diaper, you get to say, "Here, Mom/Dad, she's all yours!"

Congratulations! Makes perfect sense to give up a ride to spend time with a grandkid.

Congrats!! Tell your kids to get busy, you need a few more grand kids.

I told my daughter it was way more fun to have grand kids than to raise kids.
