Hanging Out With My New Fishing Buddy


For the next four days my wife and I get to keep our new grandson Bryson who just turned 8 months this past week. This baby sitting expedition will bring back some fond memories for his grandparents. His dad and mom are taking some days off with some of their friends at Gulf Shores. We never knew the number of ways you can spoil a grandchild until we starting keeping Bryson this past Friday. I for one just can't seem to let him sit in the floor and cry when he is bored with some of his toys. When he puts that please Pops pick me up and show me some attention face on I always pick him up. I am a big pushover and he knows just how to get his way with me. I told my wife at the supper table last night that I was going to have him casting by the time he is two. I taught our son how to cast when he was 2, and he caught his first fish when he was between 2 and 3. I don't think that is much of a stretch for Bryson. Cathey and I have been told there is nothing like grandchildren and now we have come to realize it with Bryson. 

Getting use to the outdoors

Congratulations, Grandpa, what a great looking young boy. He has got his hat and soon he will have his rod and reel. Thanks for sharing!

We got him for a couple more days----on the schedule for today is a trip down to the creek behind our house.

Sounds like a great activity for the two of you. I assume we will see another post about this trip!

Well it is probably going to rain us out today. I am working on getting there tomorrow. This little fellow has taken up all my day in a good way.

He is a handsome grandson and I know you and your wife are enjoying him tremendously. Nothing like grandkids...love the pic with the camo cap and bib!! Hope you got a chance to take him to the creek behind your house. :)

Never made it to the creek, rain again today. That trip will be on schedule for his next trip with us. I have to admit I have spoil him this week. He wants me to take him outside all time. He will point to the window or door to let us know he wants outside---and of course he gets to go out everytime he wants to.

I know you can relate to how proud I am of this little guy. I am sure this bring back memories of when Lilly was little.
