We are free to celebrate LIFE…
We are free to enjoy our most valuable treasures…
we are free to work hard and play hard…
we are abundantly blessed beyond measure & free to eat until our heart’s content…
(menu: tri-tip, scallop skewers, corn on the cob, baked beans, potato and macaroni salad and fresh fruit! DE-licious!)
We are free to basque in the sun …
And be silly and loud!
We are free to kiss our daddy goodnight and go to bed peacefully feeling safe & out of harm’s way.
Thank you for your sacrifice, your obedience to the call, to duty, to honor and justice, your suffering, your loss, your courage.
Thank you for your life.
There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends
Some more highlights from our weekend (after all, this is the family scrapbook):
Sweet G is definitely another water baby
When Alizea sprinted toward Bapa to greet him Sunday, she exclaimed, “It’s good to be home” which gave us all a good laugh. Umm, should we be worried, honey?
with his beautiful assistant
Thank you both for a magnificent feast!
Mimi with Sweets
And yes, she is doing her ‘duty’ ..sorry to embarrass you, Sweet
Special time with Auntie Nee-nee
And some super productive planning of course! (Architect/contractor Bapa gets sophisticated using buttons, coins and Alizea’s blocks to draw our
final backyard design to scale
(this was at 11:30pm before we all crashed for a big slumber party @ the Emde Resort)
A special-y blessed weekend!
