Birthday blessings and a bench

.
Happy birthday dear Dean, light of my life!
Today my first grandson turns SIX. -- Six blessed years of steady growth.

Here he is, struggling with a water bottle, in a kindergarten yard in Tel Aviv.
Dean's family lives in Australia but they came home to visit Israel last March and April.
.
The Tel Aviv bench is for Visual Norway's RuneE and the friends who meet every Friday to share benches they've found. Join us.

Happy Birthday dear Dean and a happy day for grandma Dina too!The bench is extra great. It's a coincidence that I'll post a bench next week with my eldest grandson, when he was visiting his auntie and Australian cousins. He was 7 years old then.

Happy Birthday Dean! I still remember whan I was six, walking with my parents in streets of Mashhad. Sometimes I didn't want them to take my hands. I wanted to be free to run. Good memories. Say our warm congratulations to Dean and his parents.

I like those "mesh" benches because they circulate air and the bench doesn't get hot in the sun. I have never seen orange ones before and that curved back is unique to me. I have seen some similar but they wee back to back and the part that "rolls" over the top is the beginning of the other bench on the other side. nteresting! I also like the shadow on the bench on the right!!!!!!!

Cute grandson and hope he had a terific birthday.
