Daisy, Daisy give me your answer, do, I'm half crazy all for the love of you, It won't be a stylish marriage - I can't afford a carriage, But you'd look sweet upon the seat, Of a bicycle built for two. This photo brought back memories of a song that my Grandmother and Mother used to sing to me as a child. Bob and I thought it would be nice to get the two seater to have something fun to do together and also to get some exercise. After everyone left yesterday we took a ride on the bike and really enjoyed it.

Happy Birthday Day to Jack, our youngest Grandson. He turned eight today. Jack has the same sence of humor as his parents and he is an excellent student. You have seen him recently featured in basketball and baseball. An interesting thing about Jack is that just last week end he was the best man to his Uncle Tim. He is the youngest best man I have ever heard of. Well, it was Jack and his Dad John, standing up for Tim. The story I got from John was that John was the best man and Jack was the better man. When I get pictures of that occasion I will post them.

Happy Birthday Jack!

Happy Birthday to our dear son-in-law Brent. Brent is sitting with Angie in the photo below. Browsing through my pictures I found this one which is very nice. I dared not post some of the photos of Brent because he is kind of a prankster and I am sure I would be in trouble for instance: there is one of him getting ready to torture Bob while he was sleeping. I'm sure I would be in trouble with Bob too. Anyway, we love you Brent and hope you have a great day!

Happy Birthday Brent!

This past Monday we attended Peyton's JV soccer game. She has been a very busy girl this year. She went from JV volley ball, to JV basketball and now she is playing JV soccer. I am not sure if you can see just how grand the high school stadium is in the picture but most of the high school stadiums are quite elaborate. I am so impressed. It must be a lot of fun to play there.

While watching the horrible images on TV about the earthquake in Japan I turned my head and looked out my window. The white pelicans are back. I always get very excited when I see the beautiful white pelicans. They are almost as beautiful as the swan. They were across the lake and I had to zoom in. I wish I could get a closer photo but they seem to keep their distances. It is so strange how in one part of the world there is such turmoil and in my little world right now it is so peaceful, in which I give thanks. We pray for those poor people in Japan.

White Pelicans are Back

Some of our kids, John, Joy, and Angie have been traveling recently for thier work which makes it very difficult to get together as often as we would like. Yesterday we slipped in a few minutes and had lunch together. Brent brought a beebee gun and Bob took an old empty TV Box from the garage and set up a target. The kids including the grand-kids enjoyed target practicing. This always makes me probably a little unneccesarily nervous but they were very careful and enjoyed it alot. It was a little chilly but sunny and beautiful. Everyone was enjoying sitting on the steps and soaking in the sun. We also had a birthday cake for Angie even though her birthday was a month ago. It's crazy but we eventually get around to it all.
Often one of the kids will bring flowers. Yesterday Joy and Rob brought some purple roses. They are so beautiful and don't last long. But, if you take a picture they will last forever.
