Father and Son

Sam and Dad at Red Rock Canyon
February 14, 2009

Hughie is the father of four sons. He has some great memories of activities he has had over the years with his boys. He was concerned when Sam was born though. Hugh has a bad knee and coupled with his old age he wondered if he would be able to keep up with Sam. We've had visions of shipping Sam off in the summer to visit his older brothers in order to experience some activities that equate with male bonding, but so far so good.

The last two weekends Hugh and Sam were able to go on hikes together. Last Saturday it was Red Rock Canyon with Jedidiah. Today it's the Saddleback Buttes with the Cub Scouts.

Sam and Hugh are glad to have each other. Since Tom left on his mission six months ago, the boys are currently in the minority at our house. They are happy to share some time with one another.

"A wise son maketh a glad father."
Proverbs 10:1

and I believe too,
A wise father maketh a glad son.


  1. Looks fun. I didn't know the sky could be so blue in Southern California.

  2. What a darling picture! I've enjoyed learning a little more about you and your family. Truthfully, up until now, all I've really known is that you have a daughter with a really cool name but that she spells it with 2 "n"'s!

  3. Such a great picture. No "Crazy eyes" or anything. Hue looks the same, 10 years later. I hope I age that well.

  4. What a great picture to capture a wonderful Father and son moment!
