But our boy is double lucky with this one because this particular great grandpa is someone truly special and amazing. He is funny, and kind. He is sensitive and loving. He is active and fun, Essentially this particular gramp's is a 20 year old in a great grandpa's body. And Jake is a very very lucky boy to have his GG in his life.
And this last weekend we headed off to celebrate GG's annual birthday bash.
There was cake, presents, family, and.... balloons.

Have I ever mentioned how much our boy loves balloons? I felt very bad for GG, here he went to all the trouble to organize a very beautiful decorative balloon tree, only to have his over zealous great grandson get his little paws into it.

In any case, it was a great family gathering. And a wonderful celebration of a life well lived and still going very strong.
In other news, it's been raining here. Well not today. Today was a perfectly spectacular Fall day in our city. Blue skies, crisp winds, and dry playgrounds. Not that Jake minds wet playgrounds. Or puddles.
Puddles come in second only to balloons.
