Grandpa's boys

Grandpa (AKA the Blacksmith) takes great pride in making and buying things for his boys. 


In August of 2008 he made Brady his own frog gig. Hard to believe he was 7 years old in this photo.



Just a few weeks ago he made Brady his own axe. 

Here is Alex in 2008 with his own frog gig. He was 4 at the time. 

Now at almost 9 he was the first to ask for his own axe. He was specific in that he asked for a bearded axe. 


Baby Connor at 7 weeks is just too small for either a gig or an axe, so Grandpa found him this onesie at the gun show last week!

I am sure there will be a lot more things made for the boys as they get older.

Such handsome boys.. all three. G-pa takes such good care of them (well, and of course their wonderful G-ma does too!). -T

I am sure these boys know how lucky they are to have such a talented Grandpa! And I bet he is teaching them how to be awesome hunters with those homemade tools:) Before you know it he'll be teaching them the blacksmith trade!

They grow up toooooo fast! Love the gigs and then ax pictures. I think grandma should have made Connor a stuffed gig ;) or ax even!

It's amazing how quickly our GrandLoves grow...love that your guy is so creative. My Dad used to make his own useful tools. Your Grandsons will treasure these the rest of their lives and may even watch and learn to make their own from Grandpa...what a wonderful thing.
Blessings...oh, I have a Dodge 1500 too and absolutely love it
