Grandpa's tummy comes in the way while helping second-born with the sandal straps.
Second-born (imitating pool safety rules - waves & yells): "Help!Help!"
A 20+ yr old attendant rushes to the spot and seeing Grandpa struggling, lends a hand.
Second-Born patiently waits until the straps are fastened and the attendant lifts his head.
Second born (pats the attendant on the back, with a warm smile): "Good Job, my boy!"
The attendant now blushes and shakes kiddo's hand before rushing away.
Need I say that it made our Day!
