Oh, My...He's 25!!!

Well, it's Saturday, July 24, 2010....and it's my grandson Tyler's 25th birthday! How is it possible? He's at the lake for the day....we celebrated this day on Monday because he wanted to go to the lake with his girlfriend and his mom and step-dad were involved in a golf tournament today. You know how things like that go.

The first photo is Ty at age three or four. Naturally, I don't remember exactly, but judging by his size, that's what I'm guessing. He was a big boy....weighing 9 lbs. 5 oz. at birth, blonde as could be.
The next photo was taken in Branson, Missouri, when Ty was about six years old. It's my favorite photo of him.....when he saw that bear he just immediately sat down beside it and grinned like cute. I carry this photo in my day-timer.

The next photo was taken the morning my daughter (Ty's mom) married her husband, Rick. Ty was twelve years old. It was a lovely morning.....and Ty was so excited. He loves Rick. Then, there is a photo of Ty with his mom......he's grown a bit, as you can tell....6'2", 190 lbs.

The last photo is a recent one of Ty.....still cute and our only grandchild. We've been through a lot with this young man and we're proud of him, though many stories could be told, some good, some bad, some happy, some sad. I'm thinking of him a lot today and hoping he has a wonderful 25th birthday...he deserves it. Take care out there....pat

He looks like he has turned into a fine young man. Some take the harder and longer road to get where they need to be. It looks like he made it.
