We stopped in last week and caught Jacob swinging in the sunset....sheer delight!
Blessings to my dear friends and family.....we're off on an adventure.
I hope you spend your time wisely and enjoy the last of summer doing fun stuff!
hmmm...Grampy's on the phone...Grammie's putting Cole down for a nap....I can open the freezer drawer all-by-MY-self. Seems like an opportunity of a lifetime!!
Jacob is fascinated with our swale garden....he seems to know that it is a special place just for him.
Don't you just love watching a child at play?! The innocence and beauty of it...puts me in mind of Jesus' words in the scripture....
Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven. And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.
What a joy to have two families blend together and enjoy each other's company....we are truly blessed!
But right here just 20 minutes drive from my home is the lovely beach community of White Rock.
This was the place that both of Bob's parents were raised. They lived across the street from each other, fell in love and on December 31, half way through Rosie's grade 12, they were married in the 1st United Church office in Vancouver. They eventually subdivided the Cook land into 10 lots and sold them for very little....Dad said they didn't make hardly anything by the time the dust settled on the deal. The property was south of Buena Vista Drive on Cook Street (named for G-ma's family ) now re-named Kent Street. Oh, to have just one of those view lots now!
Hope you are able to take time to walk in the sunshine...be blessed
Bob and I, with some of my siblings, took her out for breakfast and then she is going to go to the finale of the Symphony of Fire tonight with my other sister, Dianna. Like I said....she goes out whenever any one asks!
We hope you feel blessed and loved all year long, Mom.
Happy Birthday to you, Mom.....we love you lots!
This post is in celebration of BC Day 2008.
I am so thankful to live in such a gorgeous part of God's world...and part of the enjoyment of living here is the abundance of fresh fruits we have available to us. Last night we had friends over for dinner and served nectarines and ice cream for dessert ( I just crumbled ginger cookies on top, then added whipped cream and a strawberry on top!) So simple, but so tasty...the nectarines this year are amazing!
Thanks Steve and Marilyn for a great visit together...always love our time spent with you.
And Yippee for 150 years of Beautiful British Columbia!
Enjoy, my friends
