Nephew Jake Gronholz (age 16) all 6′ 3″ or 6′ 4″ 250+ lbs becomes a comfortable pillow for Sparky wearing his Thomas the Tank Engine pajamas while visiting Wisconsin and Aunt Mary’s home in Lake Mills, WI.

Sparky took to Jake, a gentle giant of a kid, and just crawled into his lap while watching TV on the comfy couch.  This image was made a couple of days before Stefanie’s wedding and so Sparky was dealing with a little bit of jet lag and all the excitement from traveling from the West Coast to the midwest.

This was one of the best things that happened over the course of the family vacation/wedding was that the kids got to know their cousins and bond.

Camera equipment:  Canon 5dm2, 50mm f1.4 ZE Zeiss, Canon 580 EX flash bounced off the ceiling, 1/125th at f2, 400 ISO.
