This year I took on a different role – speaker. I loved it. I spent a week at beautiful Camp Spofford in NH where Colette really enjoyed running around in and out of a lake. It was really amazing – There were about 100 kids between ages 8 and 12.
We love to go into what we call “the city”… and I think Colette is catching on. – Last Monday we took a trip to the city… mostly to see the Central Park Zoo… Colette assumed that every animal was a duck… that carousels were pretty normal and that Dinosaurs were to be run fearsomely at while making a loud “roaring” sound… in museums with great acoustics.
We are clearly way overdue for some pictures of Colette – I think most of you visit this blog just for that. – Spring has been busy, but we really had a great Easter with family, and we’ve been able to spend some time exploring the Island (day trip to Long Beach) and taking shots [...]
Some would call this late, I say that Christmas greetings are never unwelcome…. so here you are – a Christmas greeting from the three of us Hope your Christmas season was as full of joy as ours was. Bonus – here’s video.
My favorite new song off the newest Passion CD, is a hymn rewrite by Daniel Carson, Kristian Stanfill, Christy Nockels, Matt Maher, & Jesse Reeves called “Lord I Need You”. It is a powerful statement of trust in God mostly as a singable rewrite of “I Need Thee Every Hour”. It’s not the most catchy [...]
The upside of living on and Island is that it’s surrounded by water. (there’s a quotable) We’ve had a lot of fun taking Colette to the Fire Island Light House – (several times actually). Last week we wanted to take her again but Field 5 of Robert Moses was closed from the hurricane damage – so we [...]
So we’ve discovered that if you have a dog and a baby that both enjoy constant attention, there’s a way of putting that to your advantage. (also when the dog is pretty odd looking it helps). Ashley took some pictures of Colette around the back yard – she is a cutie. – always looking around [...]
Having a baby is a ticket to new and different adventures. – Some of them are scary (I do sometimes sent pix of poop bombs to teenage guys for kicks) some of them are adorable (like watching a line form at Panara of older women who want to see the baby’s feet) and some are just normal [...]
We’ve been busy – Colette is now over 8 weeks old and the pediatrician is ok with her going out in public and getting a “healthy” dose of germs. We took her on her first road trip to New Jersey (yes, we went all out) where she was able to meet some of our extended family [...]
Still almost a week behind in posting pictures – but this was an eventful week. The Sutter family came to visit from York. We visited Northport Village, Caumsett Park (again) and Planting Fields Arboretum State Historic Park
