Grammy's boy and mountain bike friends

Caine spent Wednesday with us here at our place, and he spent the night as well !
He is getting to be quite the 4-wheeler ! Grammy zips her sweatshirt up around him like a seat belt !

I thought that he might turn when he encountered the garden sprinkler, but he just stopped and looked at me and wiped the dirt and water as it pored down his little face!!

He is fascinated with all the equipment Grampy has for his tractor, and everything becomes something to ride...

He loves his wonder pony 'Tex'....that what he calls him. He can really get moving on this thing !
Takes after me with the horse thing...I wore 3 sets of springs off mine before I outgrew it when I was a kid...
I should have stuck with the wonder horse...Mine was called 'Jim Jump'..he never threw me!

He is ready to start this thing up and go ! Bob says start it and see what he'll do...
I did and he didn't even flinch, just looked like...,
ok, now lets get it moving !
Happy guy in the morning! He slept from 7:30 Wednesday night until about 4 am...I changed him and got him his sippy juice cup, but he didn't want it, so I put him in bed with me, and he went back to sleep until about 7:30 in the morning !
He is a sunny guy in the morning, so we 'talked' and sang and got up around 8. Then we had breakfast and he rode the 4-wheeler on the dog run with me, and then he got to be pulled in the wagon when Melissa and I took our morning walk!
He was asleep in the truck almost immediately on his ride home thursday afternoon...
Grammy was asleep by 10 pm !

Today a friend from the lake came over with her daughter and son-in-law. I rode Linda on my 4-wheeler and the'kids' rode their mountain bikes.
We did our trails, and then I took them through West Vaco, and into the Pigg River.

Heres Ashley riding up the river and the next one is her flying down the hill into the river !

They had a really long ride with some good challenges along the trails, and then the river to cool off. They are both working in New Jersey, she's a doctor in a trauma unit of a big hospital there, and her husband works in the medical field, only on the high tech end...computers.
This was Linda's first 4-wheel experience, and she did great!!!
I am really tired after the last few days of 'fun' with Caine...and I'll stick to 4-wheeling !

I love reading about your love affair with Cane. It reminds me of those precious memories that I have of spending time with my grandfather. There's nothing in the world like it.

I've been waiting for your newest blog. Thank you it finally arrived. Caine certainly has changed. He's such a little man with a mischievous look in his eyes. Gotta love that.

Yeah, he's really getting big! You make me want to have a grandchild because it looks like so much fun!

It is fun !!!!
Tiring, but when it gets too much, you send him home!!!
Grandkids are the way to go!!!
(except when they live with you, huh Jan???)
