Grandpa Time



For those of you that don't know, the Jonas Brothers is a boy band popular with the teeny bopper girls around the country -- and by teeny boppers, I mean TEENY boppers; 8-13 year old girls that scream their head off to songs like "Lovebug." I admit the tunes are catchy, but I will never admit that I have some of their songs on my Ipod.

Well, I found out last night that someone else in my family is a secret Jonas Brothers fan -- my dad!! He took Cali and Nyah out on a Grandpa/Grandaughter date to see the Jonas Brothers 3D movie and then out for dinner to their favorite -- The Spaghetti Factory! The 3 of them were the only ones in the theater. I'm sure there are more Jonas Brothers fans out there -- they were just busy last night! As an extra special treat for the girls, Dad wore a red shirt to the movie. Some of you non-Jonas Brothers fans may wonder why. Well, at the very end of the show, one of the Jonas Brothers says something like, "Hey, you. Yeah, you the guy in the front row, the guy in the red shirt. Can I have some of your popcorn?" Now, how would Dad know to sit in the front row with the girls and wear the red shirt, unless, HE'D ALREADY SEEN THE SHOW BEFOREHAND! Caught you, Dad!!!!

Grandpa Markie and Carson have also been bonding recently, playing with Carson's new action army figures. I heard Dad cracking up the other night while they were playing. He was shocked to find an amputee in the army set. "Boy, they sure are making these army guys more realistic these days!" Dad exclaimed. I didn't have the heart to tell him that earlier that day, our dog, Biscuit, had gotten ahold of what had once been a two-legged man!

Wow! What a grandpa! Love the red shirt part! Funny! There isn't anything that can replace the relationship between grandparent and grandchild! What great memories!

I've been missing out, I had no idea Carson got married! :) What a fun grandpa! Good thing he made sure the movie was appropriate for his granddaughters to see! :)

I can picture Dad laughing at the amputee army guy so vividly.
I have not yet caught the Jonas Brothers bug but they seem to be all the rage these days. I love the sunglasses on Cali and Nyah.
