80+ Years In Between

Our grand nephew was in town this week and met his great grandparents for the first time.  They have shared the planet for only eight months.


Have you ever seen such delighted faces?


There are nearly ninety years between my parents and this little sprout.   My parents couldn't get enough of him.





Neither could we.





Here he is with his great grands and his parents, our nephew and his beautiful wife.

The little guy was patient with all our smooching and cuddling.

But, it did wear him out.


When the ailments of aging wear us down and backyard gardens are withering, nothing lifts the spirits like a baby fresh from heaven.

Beautiful family.

LOVE the generational pics. Both of my kids got to meet their great-grandfather and it means so much to me that they have memories of him.

Oh, I could almost feel the excitement from here and smell the new human being baby smell. You could see how much the great-grandparents and the baby adored each other. The pictures almost glowed! :):)

Oh my word! These pictures are so sweet! I love seeing the joy in their faces. Our grand daughter is 6 months old and is the first grand child on my side and my Dad reacts just like your parents when she is around.

Mare, these photos brought tears to my eyes! I'll never forget the look on my Mom's face the first time she saw her great grandson, my little nephew. Incredible. The baby is beautiful, the family is beautiful and I LOVE the fact that your Dad is wearing a tee shirt that says "Tasty"!!!!
