Happy Birthday Grandpa Charlie!

Today is also my Grandpa Charlie's birthday, my dad's dad, who passed away a couple of years ago. I have so many memories of Grandpa. On several occasions, I would bring my science projects over to his house (we would go over there every Sunday or Monday) for "help", and he would end up practically doing the whole thing for me. He had (still has I should say, no one wants to attempt to clean it out) a garage full of every imaginable tool, and he loved to tinker around with things. So really, I was helping him to get his creative fix! :) Grandpa always had jellybeans (his favorite candy), and always tickled us. He always had all these funny little rhymes that he would say when he was playing with us. I can't remember exactly how they went now, but whenever I say little things to Asher, like: "bumble-bee, bumble-bee, bumble-bee, STING!" when I am feeding him, I always think of him. This is a picture of him holding one of his great-grand babies, I think it is Isabell Liddell, but could be wrong. I thought it was so cute though! Happy Birthday Grandpa, we love you!
