Drew and His Grandpa

What a weekend I've had.  First of all, John and his son, Drew, flew here from Salt Lake City to be with me for the weekend.  While Drew and I get along just fine, he likes his grandpa.  The two were inseparable for the weekend.  Here are a few pictures of the two.

Drew uses his iPod Touch while Dick is doing some church work using his iPad.

Dick and Drew play a game of chess on Drew's iPod Touch.

Dick and Drew prepare the fire and forks before roasting brats.
