Robert(my dad), Grandpa, and Uncle Alex.

Knowing my dad the way I do, this was probably his idea - He's always been a kid at heart - that's just him.

Several years ago, a lot of the family was at Aunt Carmela's house on Evergreen for a wedding reception for Arthur and Lucia's daughter, Jessie Ann. We were all in the backyard sitting at different tables, having a good time talking and listening to the music. I looked over at my dad, who was rolling up spitballs and tossing them at Uncle Alex then looking away. Of course when Uncle Alex looked over in our direction he didn't have to look any further than my dad.

My dad will always be a kid, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
