Uncle Budge

Uncle Budge is Shawn's sweet old great-uncle. 94 (i think) years young. He lost his wife just a couple of weeks ago and just moved down to the valley about a month ago from Lakeside. He came over to mom and dads for Sunday dinner and it was our first time meeting him (mine and the kids first time, that is) Lacy was very interested in him. She didn't quite understand why everyone had to yell at him and why he talks funny, but she was very sweet with him. She also thought it was funny when they said they were going to take Hugo and Uncle Budge for a walk. I think in her little mind she was thinking that means they both go into a stroller. Well once she realized they were just going across the street the the grass, she paitenly waited for him to get out of his chair and get his cane, and she grabbed his hand, helped him up and told him she would help him and show him where to go. It was so cute and so sweet I quickly grabbed mom's camera and chased them out the to get this sweet picture of these two, 90 years apart, walking hand in hand with no care in the world.

This picture is definitely worth a thousand words... or more!

That is just too sweet! How are you doing with 3 kids? Are you wanting me to take Lacy for a few hours anytime soon!? Let me know if you need anything, and when you are ready to get together. I don't want to bug you right after you had a baby!
