Dateline: 1 May 2015
You're going to have to bear with me for awhile as I chronicle some of these moments of life with my grandson. He will be here for another week.
Every kid in the country needs a wagon and Marlene and I bought a Grizzly children's wagon for Futureman last fall. Today, he and I put it together on the back patio.
It was not a complicated project. I could have had it together myself in 10 minutes. But I was in no hurry. Futureman was involved in every aspect of the assembly. It took us probably an hour and a half to get it together, and the wood stake rack is yet to be bolted on.
The quality of this made-in-China wagon is not too high, but it's actually made of steel, not plastic. And it was downright inexpensive.
After giving Futureman a ride around the yard, it occurred to me that he could give me a ride. He couldn't pull me on the driveway but, with enough effort, he could push me. He managed to push me about 20 feet on the driveway, then off the edge, down a small incline onto the lawn.
I was laughing and he was laughing as we went down the slope. This was a great memory, and Marlene was there to click the picture.
Futureman says he's going to give me another ride when he gets up from his nap. :-)
