Action shots always amaze me. This one is of my grandson. The photo was taken by my Niece with his dad happily tossing him into the air.
Makes me smile every time I see it.
The photo was taken in Cozumel Mexico this past month.
Gogo is just 18 months old and is as active as his dad. This young man is really my sisters grandson and I guess in the family line I can also call him grandson.
For being just 18 months old this little guy has been around the world 5 times.
He has been on 4 cruises and to numerous American Historical and State Park sites. Not to mention world tourist spots.
He has traveled more in his young life, than most do in an entire lifetime.
Gogo's parents have been living in Ohio while his dad finished his MBA and will be flying back to the Middle East this weekend. I'll sure miss him and his parents being close, but hope to see them once a year when they return for vacations.
It makes me sad that my entire family lives so far from me, but I'm happy to say we are closer than most families and see each other often.
One great thing will happen in a a few months, my daughter #2 will be coming back to the states with her military husband and their three small boys, from their 3 year jaunt to Guam. I have made sure the boys know grandma. Every two months I sent a care package with items they could not buy and numerous gifts in those boxes. It was turning into, "Did grandma send the box yet"? Their new duty station will be in Oklahoma and is only a 3-4 hr flight for me to go visit them. They also will come see me often I'm sure.
My entire life, I've always wondered what it would be like to have family living down the street from me.. not in other countries or states?
Would it be a pleasure or a hindrance?
So is life!
"Have a great weekend"
