We've been enjoying our family on vacation this week. Our grandson turned five, and we were able to spend our first birthday with him in four years. Most of the time that pleasure is for his other grandparents who live close by.
This year just happened to have several things that came together at the last minute and we were able to spend time together as a family.
We spent part of the time on the big island of Hawaii and went to a special resort so that he could meet and pet dolphins for his actual birthday on December 4th. We think he enjoyed the experience, and we hope he will remember his fifth birthday.
But it wasn't until we were back in Maui that I received a heart-felt thank you, complete with love pat and him telling me how much he loved me. It was right after I downloaded a 99 cent APP on my I-Pad, and he could make and decorate virtual cookies.
Little people are easy to please, and most of their problems are easily solved. A 99 cent APP, a bit of your time, and life is good.
If only it was that easy for the adults in his life.
