The big guys are Paul Bunyan and Babe, at Bemidji, Minnesota.
Way last winter Far Guy decided that he would like to plan an afternoon with ALL of his grandchildren. For him it was one of those warm summer thoughts on a cold winters day. Something he could look forward to in the summer. He hoped to share a bit of himself, some of the sights and sounds that he enjoyed growing up. A few weeks ago, this trip would have been impossible for Far Guy, the pain would have kept us at home. When the weather looked great and the pain was tolerable, the phone calls were all made, everyone agreed that they would be there. They all were except for Maddie who opted out for a camping trip with one of her friends. The day went on anyway...minus one grand. The Bemidji, Minnesota Water Carnival on July 03, 2009.

The four grands had a blast, and Grandpa smiled.
He was like a little kid again.
I had a great time taking photographs, and my camera was only forgotten when I played the Nudgers with the grands, I won an orange dice and a little smiley faced frisbee! We returned to Trica's and had a picnic, it is great to have almost everyone together at least once during the summer. I suppose as the Grands get older, the most we can hope for is just a few of them at once:)
