Holy Saturday at Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden

This afternoon,1 we decided to visit the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden. On the way, we hit some heavy rain, but the weather was nice when we arrived. We had most of the park to ourselves. When the rain finally arrived at the garden (with a little sleet and hail mixed in for variety) we decided it was time to leave.


  1. On the eve of Easter, or Holy Saturday. Interestingly, this is not the same as Easter Saturday

Melissa and I headed south to Sacramento — she, back to school, and me, to work in Folsom for a couple of days.

It’s nice to have company when traveling. :-)

Merry Christmas!

Kids under the tree

Merry Christmas, everyone! The kids slept under the tree in their new PJs. This morning, we opened stockings and then our presents, followed by a late brunch. Mmm! Once again, Santa confused us with a well-behaved family.

We are so thankful for the many blessings we have.

Melissa’s First Day of School 2012

Today is Melissa’s first day of her Junior year in college.

Unfortunately, I won’t see Melissa today, so instead, I’m posting a picture I took of Melissa yesterday at Lake Tahoe. Or, closer to the truth, I’m posting a picture I took yesterday that Melissa intentionally walked into.1

Have a great school year, Melissa! We’re so proud of you. :-)

1Silly photobomber — and she definitely improved the picture. :-)

Happy Birthday, Melissa!

Melissa celebrates her birthday today. I wish I was there to celebrate it with her.

Happy birthday, Missy! I love you. :-)
