For years Grandpa has said, "I gotta take those boys fishing." Or, "I'm gonna take those boys fishing." HE REALLY DID. Well, for about a 1/2 hour. There was a big wind and Doug was doing all the paddling. That sure didn't last long, but everyone was happy--especially the fish.
This is one of the "non-fishing crowd".
So, this is another birthday celebration. Around here the birthday is a special day, but the gifts really come on the "Leaman Birthday Party of the Month." I had to put this pic of Titus snitching a cheesecase as if no one noticed while we were singing. He is also helping Darius blow out the candle in the other picture.
This is a little split up, but here is Lukas at Alki Beach for the first time. He likes it!
Yes, I have to blog the boy's pics now. Ug. And, yes, I drank at least 3 diet cokes--that is why I am smiling.
Ok, so a little of my mom's wisdom. (There is a lot). Don't order kids food, there is usually enough--why order a $5 kids meal. Ok, so I may have tweaked it a little--split it 3 ways. Works just fine as long as there are a few baskets of bread sticks.
A few words need to be posted here: I believe we have one of the most amazing churches! We visited some games this year and really had a great time. We had quite a cheering section with lots of little kids (no matter where we go it seems to have lots of kids, ???). Anyway, after the game instead of relaxing our pastor and other men of the church go right on the field and start pitching to the kids and made it a fun night for them. Thank you to the men in our church for the example of being servants once again.
