Grandma's Bench

Today is Daddy’s birthday. Like I said, we really weren’t in a celebratory mode, but Mommy, the birthday boy and I took a ride down to Mountain Lake Park, near where Daddy used to live in the Inner Richmond. It’s a great part, full of grass, basketball courts, a children’s playground and a lake full of ducks.

And it’s also got something else now: Grandma’s Bench.

Mommy bought a lease on a bench that overlooks that lake, and it’s in honor of my Grandma. So now, whenever we want, we can come down here and spend some time with her. And while we’re here, we can feed the ducks and go on the swings and later, school dad in hoops. Going to Grandma’s Bench will always be a fun time, just like she was always a fun time.

This is the best thing I own.
