Fun Times and Lots of Photos.

I will give you fair warning. Since William got married and we have a professional photographer in the family, we have someone to take pictures. What an awesome camera by the way. Last night we got together for our grand daughter's seventh birthday party.




 Everyone was here. We are quite a large number now. I thought I would share a few. I will try not to drown you in them.

First our family photo with the whole family now.


I stood there thinking, about how weird it is that we have grown to have such a large family. It has been a fun week. Lots of laughter, and lots of visiting. It reminded me of when I was a kid and all of my Mom's family would get together and how much fun it was to be a kid in that environment.

Peter, Nik and Ben and Megan. 
Such a silly bunch!
We were laughing so hard.

The kids were playing Secret Agent and looking for clues.
I just loved this.
I will finish this up with a picture of Ron and I. God has been so good to us. I still don't know how we got to here, but we have. Our cup overflows. Thank you for sharing in our life.

“And the night shall be filled with music,
And the cares, that infest the day,
Shall fold their tents like the Arabs,
and silently steal away.” 

---Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

  6. Your pictures tell a story of God's blessing, for sure - I love it when three (or four) generations can share the grandchildren's birthdays; I never had that as a child.
