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.

  6. And don’t forget Ed always said you could consider him your dad when something was going on at school….like making something for your dad for Father’s Day.

  13. I love the picture of Pop waiting for the great-grandchildren to arrive. The picture beautifully portrays the wonderful anticipation. I visited an elderly friend earlier this evening, and she was waiting for me at the door in almost exactly the same pose.

  14. Great photos. I imagine Motor Man will have some fun with the boat, though it’s a tad large for the bathtub.
