20140531 807 Opa and Benjamin.jpg

Our yard

My youngest Grandson and helper decides it's time for a cookie and juice break. In the process, he immobilizes the boss by finding a comfy soft seat on the back of his legs. He stayed there till the cookie was finished. This gave my wife a chance to fetch her camera and take this shot. (I don't know how he decided that the back of my legs was a good place to sit. He just came, sat and enjoyed his chocolate covered cookie - no prompting.)

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W570
1/400s f/5.0 at 16.1mm iso80 full exif

I felt sure that I had already left a comment on this moment image, Hank. I love how your grandson used your leg as a seat while he enjoyed his cookie like nothing had happened. Priceless!!

Confortable "papy" !!! Beau moment en famille!
Dan Greenberg22-Feb-2017 01:37
That's adorable! Obviously, he scoped out his surroundings for the softest and cleanest place to sit and enjoy his cookie.

Congrats on being a "supportive" grandpa, Hank!
I appreciate your posts on my photos, also, well, supportive.
I'm a grandpa too, with a wonderful granddaughter, Dinah.
