When I started this blog, my purpose was to post pictures online of Seth and Caleb so that family members spread far and wide would feel more connected to our family and see the ongoing changes and growth that the kids were experiencing. Simple vision...but as I have continued to "blog", I discovered that I really miss writing and have enjoyed this as a creative outlet as well. It is fun to share amusing stories or exasperating tales that all of us experience as we raise our children.
However, when I looked back over the past month and realized that I haven't posted any pictures of the boys for quite some time, I felt a bit sheepish. I mean, that is why a good portion of my non-commenting readers visit this blog. And you know who you are...Terri (Steve's Mom), Steve and Jacey (Steve's Dad and Stepmom) and the rest of the family in California. Uncle Terry in Florida (my uncle, Great Uncle to Seth and Caleb), Aunt Patty and Uncle Mark in South Carolina, and others spread far and wide. I know that you come to the blog, see that I have posted, and are a tad disappointed when the smiling faces of Seth and Caleb are not there. So my apologies dear family, and I will do my best to keep more pictures coming! (And the non-commenting readers was just a joke...please don't feel pressured to leave a comment. You are welcome here, comments or no comments :-) But if you want to comment and let me know you stopped by (wink ;-) wink) you can click on the word "comments" at the bottom of this post and it will take you to another page where you can post a comment or just say "hi"! And you don't have to have a blogger ID, just click anonymous and then leave your name in the comment)
Steve recently moved into a different office at the church that was vacated by a woman who had painted all the walls light purple and one accent wall dark purple. Needless to say, Steve wasn't really "feeling" the color, so I spent a day up at the church with a friend priming and painting his new office two very hip colors for the very hip worship pastor: Sweet Carrot and Mission Tile. During my day of painting, Steve did what every good Dad does when he has a whole day with the boys...he took them to McDonalds. And then he did what only a handful of sweet husbands might do...he took his camera and took lot's and lot's of cute pictures of them. As you can tell from some of these angles, he actually had to get inside the playground in order to capture some of these shots. Oh, what sweet sacrifice!
King of the slide...
These fries are GOOD!
Seth contemplating....do I want more fries, or do I want to go and slide?
I'm outta here!
