What a joy it is to be able to take time out of the busyness of life and make some memories together as siblings! While giving Dad and Mom some time alone together to celebrate their 26th anniversary, we decided to take the younger ones to enjoy the monthly Kid’s Workshop at Home Depot. We were joined by some good friends of ours, Mrs. Kim and Dyanna, whose husband/father was away as well, and what a day!

The Lord blessed us with lovely weather and just a joyous time of simple fun.




Following the construction of many little trucks, we went to a local park and enjoyed lunch in the shade of some giant trees near the creek. But, of course, we couldn’t just look at the lovely cool water… we had to feel it too…





The Canadian geese provided another form of entertainment – they had their minds set on feasting their little beaks on a portion of our lunch. Smile


The day was a reminder that meaningful memories and precious moments together don’t have to be based around big, glamorous events. Things such as building little toy trucks, laughing over an obstinate goose, or wading in a creek, can be used by the Lord to strengthen relationships. May we all look for opportunities to use the simple things to life to encourage those around us!
