I liked hanging out in his/ grandmas yard when I was little. Learning the different plants they had, or going to the park. He tried showing me how to fly a kite, which I didn't learn til years later. Than later in life hearing the stories of his adventures and of family. Then you always had to eat before he would let you go home.
