Wednesday's Walk~ Grandpa's Pond

This is my fantastic Grandpa. He is so wonderful and I love him so much. I have been scanning old pictures and I found some of the pond that he constructed in their backyard in the city. Unfortunately, these pictures are of when he was working on it....not finished. My Grandma later went in with all the beautiful flowers and bushes that made it beautiful. I will have to try to find pictures of it finished; but this is all I have for now.

I loved that pond as a kid. We would roll up our pants to catch tadpoles and goldfish. We would capture our cousins and banish them to the island in the middle. I would skip around the outside path singing my heart out. We would sit on the bridge and dangle our feet. So many fond memories.......

So thank you Grandpa for building more than just a pond but building memories for your grandkids.
