Childhood Joys

My grandson Thomas saving the galaxy, tickling the paws of a giant  bear, and being buried up to his head at the beach by his daddy, plus a sculpture that we found at a Tyrolean restaurant we enjoy that to me does a good job portraying the joys of childhood. A bonus is we got to drive through a forest of giant redwoods to go from the beach to the restaurant perhaps twenty minutes away. It was a delightful day.

With Love,

      Thank you for your comment, Colleen. Thomas is a joyful child who fills the hearts of those around him with joy. I’m blessed, proud, and grateful to be his “Papa.”
