We Weren't There to Celebrate In Person But The Love Was

Our younger grandson had the nerve to have his 12th birthday fall during our vacation. We understand, however as his schooling does take a priority over a little thing like fun in the sun.  He is an excellent student so the harder he works the better his opportunities as he goes to higher education.

He does have a very strong will, however, which is nothing he gets from me.  I often have to remind him that it runs downhill from his grandmother through her daughter and that trail stops with him.  In time he should learn to harness that energy and use if more effectively.

What he did get from me was a love of cheeseburgers and that started at an early age.

He knew that wasn't real but was obviously working to a fonder memory.

This burger came from the CT favorite Harry's place in Colchester CT.  From here we went across the street and played a quick 9 holes of golf.  Never too young to learn especially when they give golf scholarships to colleges.

Even though we weren't able to see him in person we did get to have Face-time with him and we saw the look on his face when he opened our birthday gift to him,  PRICELESS.

Raphael will enjoy many more happy days and he knows he will always have us to support all his good deeds.

Hi Ed... what a cutie your grandson is. As someone who virtually never celebrated birthdays in person with our grands because they lived thousands of miles away and most grew up before the days of technology to "see" them, I know it's totally possible to feel the love even if you're not there right next to them.

Ed we have done a couple of the FaceTime birthdays with my granddaughter in Seattle, it is not the same but it is a good substitute.

And by the way of course he does not get the strong will from you ..... yah right.  🤪
