Talking I met my new Camping Buddy today!!!

I finally got to meet my new camping buddy, Lil' Dude, but it may be a couple of years before we get to do very much camping together.
His official name is Gary (after me) Nelson (after my DIL's father) Rhodes. I have a habit of calling my son Dude and we all have already picked up the habit of calling him Lil' Dude.
He arrived at 11:04 this morning weighing in at 8 lbs 4 oz and is 20 Ĺ" long.

Here's a pic of me and Lil' Dude.

Thanks everyone. I appreciate it.

We have 4 fantastic grand daughters, ages 4, 5, 8, & 9. They all like to camp. We will have all 4 this weekend.
So Lil' Dude is our first and probably our only grandson. I will spoil him just like I have the girls!
