Benji's Day, a Photo Story

Before leaving for work (very early) this morning Benji's mum asked for "lots of cute photos" to show her what happens today when she is away. As requested... Benji's Day, a photo story.

7:30 am; had a shower with dad and then read a few books to the dog.

8:25 am; our first trip outside (with the dog) and a trip to the playground. Lots of climbing and sliding (with no help).

12:23 pm; watched dad eat a smokie in the park; had a few bites of the bun. Decided to slide off the park bench and got a nasty little knock on the head.

What a wonderful story! Thanks for sharing Alex! I felt so heart sore about the bump though, but what's a story without a bit of drama! Hope Ben is okay and it looked like he totally forgot about it by that great smile of his. What a cutie!

This was such a nice treat to see while I was working. Especially since with the long shifts I don't really get to see Ben. Maybe for a couple of minutes in the AM if he wakes up early. It was a real surprise coming down the hospital hallway and seeing Ben standing there.
