I don't think I've ever told you about "Paw Paw Day" have I? Well let me see...we would have to start waaaay back at the very beginning, over twenty years ago, no, over twenty five years ago! Back when my husband, Ben, was just a little boy. Back then as Ben and his little brothers were growing up their Father's Father, Paw Paw, decided that he wanted to set aside a special day just for the grand-kids. He decided that Friday would be that special day. Every Friday the children knew to expect Paw Paw to come and pick them up, get them whatever they wanted to eat (even if it meant going fifteen different places), pick up whatever new toy or gadget they just had to have, and head to his house to spend the weekend doing whatever they wanted -including things that could have made their mother STROKE if she had only known (playing with fire and power tools, oh the stories I've heard)! But those are the things that make a story like this extra good, right?
I took these pictures with my phone today. We didn't have a full crowd today, but Paw Paw Day included chinese food and a dollar movie and the kids had a blast! I hope that all of you had an extra special Friday too! xo, Sam
