i was trying to do something cute with the pics, but it's taking too long
and my time is running away from me.
so...my siblings and spouses (minus matt n naomi, who live in n.c.)
celebrated my dad's birthday
on this past saturday evening
cute little "robinhood" themed place...
built around a tree. genious.
fun. less chaotic time together.
plenty of laughter. and no tears. yay. :)
(sometimes this is unusual...we usually get a little sentimental
at adult only gatherings like this.)
thanks dad for being a great dad.
for all the time, committment and prayer you have poured into
each of our lives, and now our families lives.
love your wise calm presence in the world.
we love you.
and sorry about the pics. mark couldn't believe i still don't have a
"nice" camera. it's on my list. :) goes to show all those people who
say..."it's not the camera, it's the person behind it."
~but they all have nice cameras. ya know? :)
