Papa’s New Golf Cart

Brian’s new toy arrived just in time for our sons and grandsons to have a blast driving it around the neighborhood last week. It is the perfect vehicle for scooting here and there, hauling kids with wet towels to and from the pool, and simple joy rides.

Lions And Tigers and Bears!

post223pic1_edited-1Yes! It’s finally time to pull the suitcases out of the closet, dust off the passports and head to the airport – we’re going to visit the kids in the UK! I can hardly wait to get this show on the road. I’m excited for the new destination and the sweet reunion that awaits us.
