Do you remember the TV show "My Three Sons"? Every time I am with my son and his three boys I think of that program from my youth. When I watch him with his boys I feel like humming the theme song. Of course he doesn't have any idea what I'm talking about. There must be a video of the shows somewhere.
Sunday afternoon we drove a ways south of our home to visit our son, daughter-in-law and their three sons. My dear little mother went with us and we had such a great time together with our grandsons and their mommy and daddy. There was a lot of laughter and fun. We were amazed how much each of the boys have grown and they shared with pride some projects and their plans for busy summer days. We heard of baseball games played and vacation plans being made. Kids have such a wonderful perspective on life! Most of all we just enjoyed being together.
The three boys get along well together and enjoy each other. Mr. R. is just past my shoulder and enjoying the thought that one of these days he will be taller than his Grandma. Mr. G. is busy and always has profound thoughts about life. Mr. H. is a busy little guy- crawling and beginning to pull himself up to stand. Soon he will walk and life will present new adventures everywhere.Mr. G. and Mr. H. played together for a bit. Mr. G. played a little toy horn for his little brother.Mr. R. and Mr. G played together by their daddy's feet. Mr. H. made his way to the window by the front door. He stood and jabbered and discussed something important with whoever would listen. (I have a picture of Mr. G. at the same window when he was much smaller.)Soon his brothers joined him.We ate a wonderful supper together and enjoyed the evening's conversation. Before we left for home my sweetheart read Curious George - a familiar favorite from our son's childhood - to Mr. R. and Mr. G. (Mr. H. was busily eating Cheerios in his high chair nearby.)Our time together went by much too fast. Soon it was time for us to give hugs and kisses, say goodbye and head for home. We will return again soon to spend time with them - our son and his three sons. Until then sweet memories will return and bring smiles to our faces and joy to our hearts. Again and again and again.
