*Hopefully I'll get an updated family camp photo . . .
|Camping Trip 2009|
|It's hard to explain to Noah where my dad is, but he is ever-so loving. He always kisses my dads stone. If you ask Noah where his Papa John is, he'll reply "In heaven with God."|
|This is what I wish my dad could see between these two boys. Their friendly banter.|
|He'd laugh at how quickly these two can entertain one another!|
|I hope Nicholas will one day tell Noah of all the sweet and wonderful memories he had with my dad. He remembers little things, like ice-cream with Papa and visiting my dad's work to ride the fork-lift, and how much my dad LOVED the San Diego Chargers. I hope Nicholas will share these memories with his brother; so Noah will know how happy being a Papa made him!|
|Mom and the two rugrats. I know these two make her day always! She loves them to pieces and she always looks forward to being with them and seeing them!|
|Noah saluting a Medal of Honor Veteran. This young was only 25 . . .|
|A view of San Diego. A beautiful view, indeed.|
|Mom and Poly|
|My family . . .this photo is PERFECT! It wouldn't be right if Noah just smiled normally. It's real, his facial expressions are a riot. It's what we see and laugh about daily. It's what keeps our day-to-day routine extra-ordinary :0)|
|This kid is a riot. He's spunky and loveable, difficult and friendly, moody and sweet. He's a walking contradiction and boy do I sure love him. |
Visiting my dad always make me happy and sad. I feel happy to visit him, to somehow be nearer to him. And yet I am sad because it forces me to remember the reality of it all. Visiting my dad is a reminder of the piece that is missing in my life. I have such a blessed life; I just wish that my dad was alive to share it with me.
I do believe that he is in heaven with God, watching over us. Smiling and enjoying the view from above. I just miss him . . .
|Mexican Candy at one of the local booths. We love this stuff and walked away with quite a bit!|
|I love the colors. So bright & fun!|
|Noah getting some paint work done . . . he chose a turtle!|
|Cool Rider! And no we didn't buy it, it was just fun to take pitures!|
|Yummy Mango. But walked away with none. I was just inspired by the yumminess of it all!|
|Ahhh . . . My Angels fan!|
|Bargaining for the wooden bat. Scored it for $6! Thanks to my mom! Look at all that stuff in the background. Truly a modge podge of things.|
