I took Grant to a place my Dad used to take me all the time growing up. I called Auntie Lauren, because Dad always took her there as well. We headed to Sonic for some drinks and made our way to Martin Nature Park.
I hadn't been there in over 20 years. It was Grant's first time. Of course, the second we get there he starts one direction and we start another. He was actually correct, though. He immediately found a map and was scoping out where to go. He had a great time. I was so glad to be able to share this memory with him and Lauren just as Dad had done with me so many years before.

|Quite the poser, yes?|

Dad was there in spirit

shot. It was a cold walk back to the car for him!
