Well with 3 sons and only one married I never thought it would come to pass but finally I have my 1st grandson and 1st grand child, period. Hey what can I say I'm just a proud Grampy now is all. Thought I would pass this on to anyone who cares.....;) Ethan William Hafenecker 6 lbs. 14 Ozs 20-1/2 inches. He looks just like his father Olan when he was born too.

Yes it is and it will be a busy week but hopefully I'll be able to see some of you (all my caching friends) before I leave.

Well everything is very tentative right now but my flight gets into Portland Wednesday the 30th and I leave the following Wednesday the 7th. I haven't seen my family for almost a year so I really can't plan on anything at this moment. Wish I could be more specific but it was a last minute thing. I got a great deal on Jet Blue though. $79 each way!! I couldn't drive there and back for that price.

Welcome to the club Pops! (my grandkids call me Pops!). I personally think grand kids are more fun then your own kids. And when they get older you can pump them for info about what there mom and dads are doing!! LOL

His name is Ethan William Hafenecker. And I think you can find info on making a custom coin here: http://www.coinsandpins.com/ They are quite expensive though unless you are planning on selling them. Your best bet is to go the Path Tags or Cache tags route if you are looking for a customized signature type of item.

Congratulations!!!! Now you have a lil one that you can eventually go Geocaching with!!!!

Which reminds me...

We'll have to think of a geocaching name for the kid, like we did for the Neon Couple.

Sheesh!

How about ""HafeCacher is Better than One"? (Shortened to "HafeCacher"?)

He is adorable...congratulations. I've heard it said that grandchildren are our reward for not strangling our teenagers. They are a wonderful reward As a grandmother of nine I can tell you the time goes by very fast so enjoy every minute you can with them.

Welcome back Steve . . . good to see you're back in the game with all of those great caches of yours . . . sometime we should hook up and do some caching . . . and holy cow . . . those girls of yours are growing up -- and from the looks of it you've lost some weight since I last saw you.
