A mix of photography, recipes, personal thoughts, faith, and lots of family stuff, but not necessarily in that order.

The Grandpa he is....just comes natural for him.

So no, it's not Father's Day, or his birthday, it's no special day today but...
this guy is pretty special all the time, and I just want to honor him today. 
She's the one that made him a grandpa first (Audrey)
My heart still skips a beat when I see Rick with our grandkids.
He's was (and still is) the best and perfect dad for our kids but now.... 
he's the perfect and most wonderful grandpa to our grandkids.
So this random post is to honor the "grandpa" that he is...just because.

These two... 
it's hard to go out in public with these two, they are like 2 peas in a pod,
full of goofiness and plenty of shenanigans!
They truly adore each other.

2 summer's ago with Scarlett. 
She already knew at a young age that Grandpa is the goofy one!
I remember telling Scarlett, "Go get grandpa", and she did. 

Oh "BOY", I can hardly wait to see the bond these two will share,
another grandbaby to love!
Our sweet Lewin just a few days old.

I believe all the empty space in his heart is reserved for his grandkids.

 I love that she still wants to sit in his lap

 Serving along side his grands, such a good example, and fun too!

 One of most favorite photo's of all, unscripted, spontaneous, authentic love!

 He will always encourage them and be there for them.

 Spending time....just Scarlett and Grandpa.
 By the look on Scarletts face, something tells me that grandpa is reading the book in a goofy way, making things up as he goes, after all why would you read the book "normal"

 He loves them all equally, all the while recognizing that they are individuals, 
having different likes and needs.

The kind of Grandpa that gets down and plays....because he wants to, and because he knows it matters in the eyes of his grandbabies.
Our grand babies are luck to have you Rick, but I know what you're thinking.... 
"I'm lucky to have them".  I'm pretty sure the feeling is mutual.


  1. There's so much beautiful love throughout your family...thank you for sharing.

    1. Oh thank you Liz. It's not hard to love these babies... They just bring it out of us.

  2. Ah, you know how I love this post brimming with love and sweetness and all things family. I love love love being a grandma and, like you, I love watching Randy as a grandpa.

  3. You two are awesome grandparents !
