For Wordless Wednesday
I was told that the circle was home and the end of the track was the dangerous outside world. And we should play there.
This is the picture I think of when I think of my wedding day. We took other pictures. Maybe better pictures. Certainly more “weddingy” pictures. But this one sticks for me. It is totally my favorite.
It goes along with this fun, some-what private moment afterward, while the people were still in the nave, hearing the postlude, before filing out and heading to the reception. A quiet moment, serene. Us. The sun. The perfect day.
Happy anniversary, Baby. These are the moments I think of when I look into your eyes. We certainly could use more serene!
We’re heading home tomorrow from Sunset Beach. We have had a great time with family, even if the weather was cold and rainy. We had sun on the first day and it peeked out at the end.
We ate really well and the kids spent a lot of time outside, despite the rain. Mostly we laughed and played games and enjoyed being together.
Really, we don’t want to leave. But as we gathered at the beach tonight, we played easy.
The Detroit Zoo hosted an Easter festivity today. It wasn’t Easter, of course, but Holy Saturday. I went along anyway.
The boy loves birds and wouldn’t stop chasing the peacocks.
Then we visited the polar bear exhibit, which was really cool. We went under the water and got a close up of a seal!
On the way out, we saw another favorite: the flamingoes!
It was a long day. I don’t think I’ll make it to tonight’s Vigil, Daddy!
He put on his sister’s hat and fell right to sleep.
With my wife sick on her birthday, we put off the birthday cake until tonight. I made a Cherry Garcia-based cake and then started the icing.
Here is 4 tbs butter, 1/3 cup milk, and 6 marshmallows. Going to be good!
Mix in 2 cups powdered sugar and 1/3 cup chocolate.
It is a real blessing to have a family and another year to spend with them. For my birthday, we’re playing with trains.
Today, to celebrate the day I and many others were born, I want to give to you a share of my happiness. And, in the immortal words of Bill and Ted,
Be excellent to each other!
I want a church in which we can all celebrate and live up to the type of fatherhood described in the story. And their children inspire us to be better fathers as this one does for me. Where the church causes pain is precisely where the church should cause celebration.
The family has gone on vacation for the first time in two years. It really is a much-needed respite.
My plan was to send all sorts of goofy and sweet pictures from the road; however, the 4G service has been entirely absent from much of our voyage to the north. So postings will be slim.
Good luck friends and happy times ahead!
