other than david’s mom accidentally calling me her daughter-in-law, it was a pretty uneventful weekend. well, that’s not totally true. it was full of events worth talking about. emily celebrated her upcoming fifth birthday (which is actually today—happy birthday, emily!). nathan, two, jumped off the community raft into the water with reckless abandon (and the aid of a life jacket) over and over. katie, ten months, squealed with delight, crawled around, and pulled herself up into a standing position, twice grabbing david’s leg hair for assistance. laura, three months, cuddled and slept, and smiled eagerly when people talked to her. and peter and martha celebrated forty years of life and love, though they both dodged son-in-law brad’s questions about their early years as young courters.
these pictures were taken by me and, while good, are not as good as those taken by david’s keen eye and swift finger. i’ll share some of those once i get them onto my computer. for now, these will have to do.
