"Vroom-Vroom" Papa's Motorcycle Shop

visiting my dad's shop in Gainesville, FL

silly cousins

remembering growing up on the back of a motorcyle
this fact shocking my kids every time
childhood memories playing hide-and-seek with my sisters in here
dad thought this bike would fit me nicely
don't want to deal with helmet hair
limited seating

could be in Boo's future though - child with no fear

YELLOW CAR!!!  err... bike

Nana's Pride and Joy

the annual lighting ceremony
warm humid night

wait, I think a bulb is out

kids running through a christmas wonderland
avoiding huge FL ant piles

no mention of Chevy Chase's Christmas Vacation movie
AT ALL  :)

hours and weeks worth of work

happy grandchildren = priceless

Papa's FL Garden

The Story of Jonah

The story of Jonah from Corinth Baptist Church on Vimeo.

Jesus said "Let the little children come to me" for a reason.  This little girl is so expressive in her story-telling. I am always amazed at how very young children can memorize very lengthy pieces. Enjoy this incredible video! (She reminds me a lot of my very expressive Boo!)

Swinging so high
Bare feet

calm lakes
puffy white FL clouds
