Last week I went to lunch with my mom and my SIL Audrey while my dad kindly watched the Owlie boy. Owlie has a serious crush on his Papa so this was a good situation.
Usually Papa will read Owlie some books and put on a little show for him to watch. But this day was different.
When we arrived home the two buddies were busy in the basement and called us down to examine their hard work. They had built Fort Valentine out of vintage blocks and army men. It was awesome!
Both Owlie and Papa were so proud of their work and insisted I take pictures of it, which was no problem for me since they are good subjects and so darling together. I will cherish this picture forever!
When I think that five years ago at this time my father was lying on a table getting radiation and eating through a tube in his stomach, I feel very, very grateful that he could get down on the floor and build this fort with my boy.
Thanks for being an awesome babysitter, Papa! Owlie loved being with you and was really happy when looking at these pictures today.
