The Best Babysitter

Papa Ben is the best babysitter!

Happy, Happy Thanksgiving!

We gather together...
to play with electronics.
And pray that they still our entertainers will be.
We made a token gesture to feed the birds...
before they fed us.
Our food was delicious.
And not just the turkey.
Jeff does sous-vide so he can use a blow torch.
We were happy to sample his endeavors.
There were a lot of cooks, actually.
We have done a lot more than eat, though!
Being here this week has been like
stepping through the Looking Glass.
The weather cooperated.
Six months ago this child wouldn't
get near the diving board -- and now look!
There were a lot of helpers to encourage!
It was hard to get enough sleep, though.
We've been smelling the flowers all week long...
and spending a lot of time together...
and smiling a lot.
Aren't these smiles precious?
Yes, lots of smiles!
Counting our blessings, one by one.

Dave and Sam wanted their heads buzzed for the summer.
Jeff wisely said no.
Our early years in NJ were forever ago,
but I still remember how much
Sammie loved his kindergarten teacher.
Jeff was a good little kid.With a clone for a son, don't you think?
There were a lot of pictures taken this day.
Our family likes ducks, that's for sure.
We can blame the duck theme on this man.
I found a note with this photo.
I thought the picture was of Dad in his coat.
No, it was of the Jeep which he had recently acquired.
Both were necessary in Adak, it seems.
We can blame others for
being fond of fowls...
I think Ben is crying fowl in this picture.
Many have forgotten he started his fatherhood
career with Little League.
I forgot I was young once.
And the kids were young, too.
Corinne was the cutest 5 year o…
