Tired Boy

As we started the Alzheimer's Walk in Iowa City yesterday Grandson Daniel had a hard time waking up.


I certainly can't think this far in advance, nor I am this coordinated - one in each hand and two in the air...

If We Don't Look...

If we don't look at grandpa we can play here a lot longer...
