Proof of Life

by bernardtwindwil

Grandchildren for the long weekend

Granddad, tell us a story. Granddad, read us a book.


Granddad, watch me dive! Granddad, catch this ball.


Granddad, am I pretty like this? Granddad, watch me dance!


Granddad, now I can swim! Granddad, can I have a snack?


Grandad, we can sing the songs Granddad, we can dance


Granddad, look at my helicopter! Granddad, I built Daddy's trailer.


Granddad can I ride on your scooter. Granddad, let me steer by myself,


Granddad, will you make us mac & cheese with hot dogs. Granddad it's my turn to set the table.

Kong (Nonni's beagle)

Granddad it's my turn to pet Kong. Granddad look at Kong my doll's dress.


Granddad will you read to us tonight? Granddad don't forget to make it funny.
