The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me; Your love, O Lord, endures forever ~ do not abandon the works of Your hands. Psalms 138:8

While everyone else was finishing up their desserts, Shawna and I took the boys outside to run off some of their pent-up energy....they went running off down the hill, with Shawna in hot pursuit. The next thing we knew they were crossing over to the pond....and Cole didn't even break his stride...he walked right into the water and began to paddle.

All participants and spectators responded in an expected fashion:

I did what any good G-ma would do in a similar situation.....I screamed.

Shawna did what any good Mama would do in a similar situation....she stepped in and grabbed him in one fell swoop.

The golfers sitting out on the patio did what any good sportsman would do in a similar situation...they applauded.

And Jay did what any good big brother would do in a similar situation....he tried to keep a closer eye on his wayward brother the rest of the afternoon. (muttering under his breath...No, Cole; No, Cole.)

After our brunch we headed into the Fort town for a walkabout...we checked out the vintage cars, window shopped, and sat and waited for the train....

We climbed around the old caboose and jusst enjoyed each other's company.
