And in case you were wondering...

....who is responsible for those completely adorable grandchildren we have--

Our son, Aaron, is an optometrist here in town and spends his days checking other people's pupils. Christa was an elementary school teacher, and now spends her days with these two very bright pupils. They only live a mile away from us, and I never take it for granted how special it is having them close by.

When Aaron was growing up, every Memorial Day we would go to the zoo. And I would make him stand in front of the flamingo exhibit, posed like a flamingo. So when we celebrated Charlotte's 3rd birthday at the zoo, Aaron practically begged for me to take his picture in front of the flamingos once again, you know, for old time's sake. Oh, wait. Maybe it was the other way around. Maybe I was the one doing the begging. Yeah, that's probably the way it went down...
