Throwback Thursday – Mikey & Heather 2005

Thursday , 13, August 2015 Comments Off on Throwback Thursday – Mikey & Heather 2005

Looking through my photos last night I found this one of Mikey & Heather in 2005 when Heather was just a few months old and Mikey was four and a half.

School starts back in a couple of weeks and Cindy and I will be heading back to Wolf’s Haven in three weeks for a couple of months, so I wanted to take the opportunity in the next two weeks to spend some extra time with my three oldest grandchildren before we all go our separate […]

I got some wonderful cards for Father’s Day and thought I’d share them. Thanks to all who helped me enjoy Father’s Day 2015!

Throwback Thursday – Cindy And Mikey At Universal Studios 2007

Thursday , 23, April 2015 Comments Off on Throwback Thursday – Cindy And Mikey At Universal Studios 2007

Today’s Throwback Thursday takes us back to April of 2007 when we took Mikey to Universal Studios. He met Spider-Man and Captain America and had a good time all over the park, but this is one of my favorite photos from that day.

Cindy took Ann and our two oldest grandchildren, Mikey and Heather, to Disney’s Animal Kingdom a few weeks ago. Here’s a video I just loved seeing; Mikey having fun and enjoying The Festival of the Lion King.

Back in January, Grandma and I took Abby to Leu Gardens for a short morning visit. I’m finally getting around to looking over the photos I took and I found these six of Abby that I really liked, so I thought I’d post them. Abby is always (ok, almost always) happy to “model” for Granddad […]

A couple of weeks ago I posted about the Moving Day National Parkinson’s Foundation Walking Benefit. That walk took place yesterday at Crane’s Roost Park in Altamonte Springs and my mother-in-law, Kay Perkins, who has Parkinson’s (as did her late father, Charles William Kinney in whose honor we walked) was well represented by her family, […]

Happy 5th Birthday, Jade!

My youngest granddaughter, Jade, was born on this date in 2010. We’re thankful for technology like Skype that has let us see and talk to her at her home in San Antonio every couple of weeks over the past year. Here’s a photo of me holding her when she was an infant. Happy Birthday Jade! […]

Back on January 16, 2010, we took our granddaughter Heather (with her mom) and George and Caroline’s daughter Rowan (with her mom) to Disney Hollywood Studios for the day. Here they are with the Sorcerer’s Hat in the background, a landmark which has recently been removed.

Saturday, my step-daughter and granddaughter went to see the The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus at the Amway Center. When my granddaughter Abby began excitedly telling me about the tigers and elephants she saw, it reminded me of a post I wrote back in 2006 about a protest for animal rights that took […]
