Today is my 1st nephew's 1st birthday. He was born on 9/11 last year and I always had a small fear that the horror of that day would forever cast a shadow over his birthday - but it doesn't. He is an example of life moving on.
We had a party at my cousin's farm and Bear and Goldy were great with him and all of the other kids that showed up! Bear fetched the Nerf football for the older kids when they missed the catch and even dropped it when asked.
My nephew Truman, the birthday boy LOVES both of them and chased them all over the yard. They are great with kids, even though they aren't around them all that often. Truman fell on them, let them lick him and Bear even brought him a Wiffle ball that Truman plucked right out of his mouth.
And they were both VERY helpful when Truman at his cupcake - cleaning everything up!
I was VERY proud of them!
