Missing my grandson

This Wednesday, May 30 will be bittersweet for me.
It will mark the birthday of our middle grandson, Sam.
He will be 4!! Happy Birthday!
Time sure flies!
It seems like it was just a second ago we were up in Minnesota to help Sam celebrate his third birthday with friends and family.
A whole year has passed! (eventful, good and some difficult)

We sure wish we could be up there to celebrate this special occasion with him. But, it is just not going to happen. I was given the okay to ride that far (at least a days drive for us) as long as we stop every hour or two to get out, stretch and move around. With some rest the following day, of course.
 We are hoping to get up there soon, to see both Sam and his big brother Collin who we miss just as much.

Here are a few memories from last years celebration to enjoy.

trucks that were on his birthday cake
Hey! Is there something on here?

I will test taste it to find out...
Chomp! on digger truck
Yum, it is frosting!!

always moving, playing or climbing
bubbles are fun for boys, and a clean messy

exploring a tunnel, with a snack of course!

Wishing you a Happy and fun 4th Birthday, Sam!!

Have you ever felt sad because you had to miss a family gathering?

    What an adorable boy!!

    Sorry you can't go to the party but am hoping you can see him soon!

  21. What an adorable little boy! Yes, I had to choose between attending my granddaughter's first birthday party or taking my dad to his WWII Air Force reunion. I went with dad to his reunion because he wouldn't be going too many more times, but it was a tough choice!

  22. Happy Birthday to him.

  23. Too cute! Happy Birthday!

    Mine's here.

  24. He's adorable Faythe, must just tear your heart out not to be there on his birthday! I love his curls my second granddaughter is a year old and showing promise of a head full of curls just like his :) Hope you feel better soon so you can be with your family.

  25. What a cutie pie! I know what you mean. I have a grandson in Missouri & his birthday was the day after Dave's May 24th, but they will be up here to see me for my birthday next month so I have something to look forward too. So cool.. Hope you're doing well my friend.

  26. If you do decide to make that long drive, stopping as prescribed, just be sure to make it a long, long, visit!
