I wish I had a more recent photo to post but aside from the skateboarding picture I took today (you can't see his face) I don't have any real recent photos. This one was taken last year on one of our camping weekends. I think he was trying to look tough...hard to do when you're a short fella who weighs less than 100 lbs soaking wet. lol I just liked the reflection of the campfire...a little blurry though.
This one was taken today and no he hasn't grown much since last year. I believe this particular "trick" is called an Ollie. I wish I could build him a real place to skate but I am just not gifted in the construction department. If I built it, it wouldn't be safe to walk on much less skate. lol Since our yard was a pasture at one time, it doesn't really lend itself to skating but he was determined to figure out a way to do it. It's amazing what willpower and a little plywood can do to improve a situation.
Happy Birthday, Son! I love you!
