Quick glimpses

Some quick looks into happenings in our life - so that Grandparents back east can see what we're up to! :-) There are many more photos... many.... many...! But for now, just a quick glance. When Kaylee gets back from Disneyland and Huntington Beach (her senior trip, with dad along as one of the trusty chaperones) she can post more fully about the various events. Of course at that point, she'll have trip photos to share! Connor as part of a trio (2 flutes, 1 cello), playing a Haydn piece. Well done!!
Some of Kaylee's littlest ballerinas

and their sweet dresses.

And speaking of sweet.... Graham and Jenny.

Something else sweet: the lovely birthday cake that Kaylee baked for her friend, Hannah.

I suppose some would say, "SWEEEEEEET!" to this. Evidence of guys (with guns) camping.

And the beautiful place they went: Black Rock reservoir.
(Tim, Connor, and James and Hunter Reilly braved the cold and rain.)

Speaking of beautiful :-)
Sally, Jenny, and Kaylee went to a dinner theater to see the production of Little Women.

And before that (this post goes in chronological order - backwards), our church went to Woodward Park for a fun afternoon and potluck. It was freezing cold and windy. Connor did not perform baptisms. However, he did threaten a good sprinkling. This wasn't a baptism either - or a "down to the river to pray" moment. It's Andrew rescuing the ball from the freezing cold pond. When you play volleyball and football at the water's edge, this comes with the territory.And finally, we were the last ones at the park - cleaning up. And Kaylee was enjoying the beauty of the fountain all lit up. "It's so romantic," she said. Of course, it was just Jesus (our neighbor, about to be doused by Connor in the previous photo), Connor, her dad and her mom there with her to share in the lovely romantic setting. Sigh. But it was lovely, nonetheless.

Oh, and for my mom and dad: Here's the tree we planted while you were out here! See the flowers?

And our loaded rose bush!
And now it's time for bed... then off to Monterey and the beach and aquarium tomorrow - with our friends, the Myers, who so graciously invited Connor and me to join them while Kaylee and Tim play at Disneyland!
