Round Robin Photo Challenge -- Growing

















This time the Round Robin Photo Challenge theme is "Growing." It can be about anything that grows, but since I have just been to visit my kids and grandkids in Bend, Oregon, I thought I would make my entry be about them.

First is a picture of my grandsons Michael and Alex here at my house when they were little. Michael was just over 2 and Alex was 2 months old.


















Then is a picture of grandsons Michael, then 7, and Alex, then 5, along with their dad, Tony, at a family dinner Christmas of 2006, at my oldest son J.D. and wife Kris's house.










Next is a picture taken in Bend on May 17, just days ago, of Tony, Michael, now 10, and Alex, now 8, clowning around at a park in downtown Bend.



















Last is a more serious picture of Alex, their mother Kamie, me, and Michael. You can really see Michael's long hair here! LOL! The boys are really growing up and me -- I'm growing older. I think Kamie will always look young and pretty.



















In some ways it's difficult to see the children grow but in other ways, it is welcome. They need to mature in life.

Kids do grow up so quickly! & yes, even though we don't admit to it often we grow right along with them. ;o) Great entry.
