Dads Of All Ages

During my growing up years, Father’s Day was just another day around our house. Both grandfathers died before I was born, and my dad died when I was a baby.

These days, though, our family includes lots of guys celebrating being dads.

A Father’s Day celebration took place yesterday at Motor Man’s parents’ house. Here’s Pop, waiting for everyone the great-grandchildren to arrive.


A little while later, Christian sat in Gee-Gee’s lap for a few minutes.

Although Motor Man isn’t officially a dad, later in the day, Marshall and I presented him with a gift toy: a radio-controlled race boat. (A friend asked me if he will be “souping up” the engine……probably.)

The weather was perfect, and it was a fun day spent celebrating our dads of all ages.
