Boys Will (Always) Be Boys

On this New England road trip not only did we get to spend time with the newest family member, 2-week old, granddaughter Elizabeth, but also her 4-1/2 year old brother, our grandson Bobby.

What are little boys, made of? Bobby0729 (6)
Frogs and snails, and puppy dog tails,
That's what little boys, are made of

To become a real boy you must prove yourself brave, truthful and unselfish (Pinocchio)

Boys are beyond the range of anybody's sure understanding, at least when they are between the ages of 18 months and 90 years   (James Thurber)

Okay, which one of you guys left the secret book laying around? I really enjoyed this. Thanks for sharing!

P.S. We also revert to boyhood more and more with age. At least that's the case with me and i'm having a ball with it :-)

Great post, both the quotes and the photos! What a treat it is to get to share a grandchild's life.

THANK Everyone for your comments.

Chip, we really are enjoying our second childhood too. It's just as much fun as the 1st time around.

Hi Lois & Christine (Mama-Bug), those last 2 photos were my favorites as well, so I used them again.

Yes Diana, Daisy & Elaine, we are doubly blessed with grandkids.

Grammie G, he is quite a handsome fellow even at his young age (sigh) and takes after his dad.

Hi GBS, completely understand your impartiality and am sure your sons also provided much joy.
